Eight years’ worth of articles from the Academy’s magazine Ingenia goes online today. Visitors to the online version will be able to download PDF copies from the hundreds of printed articles and view them as they appeared on the printed page. People will also be able to read the features as HTML text pages thus making www.ingenia.org.uk accessible to all and a valuable engineering resource worldwide.
There are many advantages to placing the few hundred published articles and letters on the web. Finding articles will be significantly easier and readers will be able to search for articles by keywords. Alternatively they can go to the Theme pages, and search for articles in categories ranging from Acoustics to Bioengineering to Wealth Creation.
Readers will be able to link to related articles, both within Ingenia online and on other related internet sites. In time we will also have a facility for people to sign-on and comment on articles. This interaction will greatly enhance the site and will generate both discussion and interest in Ingenia’s writing. The launch of the website comes at the same time as we are doubling the hard copy distribution to 9,000. Having the continued support of our sponsors has been an important element of this expansion. Arup, BAE Systems, Lloyd’s Register, Mott MacDonald and Rolls-Royce have all helped over the years in maintaining the steady growth of the magazine.
We hope that www.ingenia.org.uk will become a significant engineering resource. The online Ingenia presence will allow readers worldwide to access and hopefully contribute towards the content of www.ingenia.org.uk
