Aims and Scope
IMPACT is an official newsletter of the Association of Overseas Chinese Agricultural, Biological, and Food Engineers (AOCABFE, short as AOC). As an edited and periodic electronic publication, its aims are to serve AOCABFE as:
1. The official bulletin and archive. It publishes major official AOC documents including, but not limited to, its constitution/bylaws, organization, annual reports, and board meeting minutes. Its past issues are AOC's archive.
2. An information exchange channel. It goes with the AOC website to publish news, AOC and its members' activities, feature stories, and announcements. It shares student's experiences in living, studying and job hunting.
3. A forum. It provides the AOC members a round-table to express opinions over and to discuss and debate issues related to AOC and agricultural, biological, and food engineering fields.
IMPACT limits its topics and contents closely related to the AOC mission and its active science and engineering fields.
IMPACT serves the AOC members as its primary readers. However, its readership also extends to members of other engineering professional organizations and all the agricultural, biological and food engineers of Chinese origin as well as stakeholders.
