Dear reader,

Our initial plan to join forces with the JPMTR journal of IARIGAI
have been put on hold. The IC Circular will be published from now
on in an online format. What does this mean?
Once a submitted research paper has passed the peer-review process
it will be typeset and the PDF of the research paper will then be
published on the website of the International Circle.
A printed edition of the IC Circular usually contains six to eight research papers. Once this
number of papers has been reached the IC presidium committee will see how a printed edition
can be produced.
The first article has been written by a member of the Warsaw University of Technology,
Department of Printing Technology, Institute of Mechanics and Printing, Faculty of Production
Engineering. It is about the impact of low-temperature plasma treatment parameters on
wettability and printabilityof PLA film.
I have fond memories of the joined conference between the IC and IARIGAI in Warsaw in October 2018. It was a well organized conference and the celebration at the end of the conference in the main building of the university was simply outstanding.
Of course the IC presidium committee will keep you updated in regard to any changes in the collaboration between the journals of the IC and IARIGAI.
Don't hesitate to send me your manuscripts via email to You can write to me in German or English, but your articles need to be in English.

Best regards,
Martin Habekost
