PTI: Free-to-Access Papers After Readership Boom


PTI has made dozens of highly academic technical papers free to access from Edition 76 of the journal to celebrate its unprecedented success with subscribers.

The authors of over 30 technical papers from the last edition collectively received more downloads than any other before it.

Because of this success, PTI is making the papers featured below free until March 13, 2018.

PTI has seen a drastic change in new visitors, which have gone up by 20% on 2017's figures.

In the latest edition, authors including Maciej Kranz, Vice President, Strategic Innovations, Cisco Systems, reveal proven and theorized concepts in how to carry out engineering with hardware and software solutions at ports and terminals. 

Port Technology's Container Terminal Automation Conference will build upon much of the expertise featured in the technical papers, as authors such as Dr. Yvo Saanen, Commercial Director and Founder of TBA, and Inna Kuznetsova, President and COO of INTTRA, will provide further insight in a range of sessions.
