ARJ Editorial Process
The original Transactions of the SAIEE journal was established in 1909 at the same time as the South African Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Its purpose was to serve as a medium of communications for the fledgling institute and to serve the interests of the electrical community in South Africa. Until approximately 1984, it carried news of the institute, published transcripts of papers presented at institute meetings, and peer reviewed papers. Around this time it was deemed appropriate to split the Transactions into two parts, ELEKTRON, which was to continue to serve as a communications medium for the institute, and which would carry articles of a general nature (not peer reviewed), and the Transactions, which would henceforth carry only peer reviewed articles. In accord with this history, the Transactions of the SAIEE was currently running at Volume 96 (2005).
Since 2005, the title "Transactions of the SAIEE" changed to "SAIEE Africa Research Journal."
The Journal is accredited by the South African Dept. of Education, implying that South African academic institutes are eligible for government subsidy for articles published by members from their institutes.
The production of the Transactions will ultimately be in accord with International Standard ISO 8, "Documentation – Presentation of periodicals."
In 2009, the Journal will reach 100 years since first publication (1909).
