We would like to congratulate our section editors Richard Bowman, Jérémy Bonvoisin and Kevin Moerman, as well as our editorial board member Tom Baden on their recent appointments to faculty positions.
Thanks to co-editor Luis Felipe R. Murillo, open hardware will now be represented in the new University of Virginia Data Science Institute, which promotes a free and open source approach to data acquisition and analysis. He also presented the Journal initiative this summer at the Week of Open Source Hardware at the ETH Zurich, connecting to the Free and Open Source Silicon community.
Co-editor Tobias Wenzel will be a main speaker at the open electronics session at the annual meeting of the Society of Experimental Biology in Prague in 2020.

The Journal of Open Hardware (JOH) is accepting submissions for 2019.
JOH was launched in March 2017 as the first international open access peer reviewed academic forum for an interdisciplinary discussion of open hardware research. The journal accepts submissions which cover technical, legal, scientific, economic, educational and sociocultural aspects of hardware design, fabrication, and distribution. We invite submissions from various fields, such as (but not limited to) human-machine interaction, biotechnology, engineering, physics, computer science, humanities and social sciences, among others.
We are the only journal to review hardware documentation alongside manuscripts and to ensure that projects are not only replicable, but also modifiable, which is at the heart of the open source principle and its potential to drive innovation.
The Journal of Open Hardware publishes as soon as articles are ready. There is no delay in research being released compared to traditional “issues”. Submissions can be sent throughout the year. The journal’s average submission to acceptance time in 2018 was 88 days.
Here are the two most popular papers we have published so far:
Jonveaux, L., 2017. Arduino-like development kit for single-element ultrasound imaging. Journal of Open Hardware, 1(1), p.3. DOI: http://doi.org/10.5334/joh.2
Pearce, J.M., 2017. Emerging Business Models for Open Source Hardware. Journal of Open Hardware, 1(1), p.2. DOI: http://doi.org/10.5334/joh.4
Thank you to reviewers
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the peer reviewers who gave their time and expertise during 2018 to help ensure that the Journal of Open Hardware continues to publish rigorously tested research. As always, we are extremely appreciative of the efforts put in to ensure that high academic quality is maintained.
