IEREK’s Past Successes Publication: Explore New Ways of Thinking


From ground-breaking research to eye-opening perspectives on current events, we are proud of the incredible insights and discoveries that IEREK’s journal has brought to share some of the most exciting and compelling contributions in the field of Technological Innovations and Smart Cities.

A throwback to IEREK Press Journals, which published numerous papers, covering a wide range of topics, from architecture to energy and technology. This publication serves as an important source of information for researchers in their respective fields.

Whether you’re an established expert or a promising up-and-comer, join us as we take a trip down memory lane and reflect on the research paper that has inspired new ways of thinking, promising to inspire you.


Here’s Mr. Luke Lynch, Dr. Elisavet Andrikopoulou, and Dr. Nima Dadashzade’s paper titled “What is the general population’s perception of smart motorways in the UK?” on IEREK’s Environmental Science and Sustainable Development Journal.

“Motorway users have various opinions about the types of smart motorways. Motorway utilization can be affected if road users have a negative perception of certain types of smart motorways, particularly on the topic of safety. There are three types of smart motorways that can be found in the UK. These are Controlled Smart Motorways (CSM), Dynamic Hard Shoulder (DHS), and All-Lane Running (ALR)”

This previous publication of the international conference on Health & Environmental Resilience and Livability in Cities – HERL discussed the varying opinions of motorway users regarding the different types of smart motorways found in the UK, including Controlled Smart Motorways, Dynamic Hard Shoulder, and All-Lane Running. The study found that negative perceptions of certain types of smart motorways, particularly regarding safety concerns, can impact motorway utilization. Understanding these opinions and concerns can help inform the development and implementation of future smart motorways.


In the fast-paced world of research and academia, publishing your work is a crucial step to sharing your findings with the wider community. At IEREK, the mission is to provide a platform for researchers, scholars, and professionals from all over the world to come together and exchange knowledge about various topics. One such platform is IEREK’s international conferences.

Building on the theme of the 1st and 2nd editions of the HERL conference that fosters healthier, more sustainable cities, the 3rd edition of HERL conference is on the way, acts as a forum for professionals to share their latest research on one of the conference topics as follows;

  1. Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability.
  2. Climate-related impacts on the built environment.
  3. Uptake and Integration of Renewable Energies.
  4. Health and Well-being in the Built Environment.
  5. Geographic Perspectives on Climate Change Mitigation in Urban and Rural Environments.
  6. Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems.
  7. Nature-based Solutions Against Environmental Disasters and Climate Change.
  8. Efficient Environments: Clean, Renewable, and Passive Energy.

As a continuation of the excellent work published in the IEREK Press Journals and other publishers like Scopus and Web of Science through our international conferences, several conferences act as a forum for professionals to share their latest research. Through this sharing of knowledge, new ideas may be born, and new paths taken in the pursuit of the ideal society.
