As a leading journal in its field for more than two decades, The International Journal of Robotics Research (IJRR) was the first scholarly publication on robotics research. Today, it continues to supply scientists and students in robotics and related fields - artificial intelligence, applied mathematics, computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering - with timely, multidisciplinary material on topics from sensors and sensory interpretations to kinematics in motion planning.

The International Journal of Robotics Research offers incisive and thought-provoking original research papers and articles, perceptive reviews, and lively editorials on ground-breaking trends issues, technical developments, and theories in robotics by the outstanding scholars and practitioners in the field. IJRR covers more than just narrow technical advances-it embraces a wide variety of topics.

IJRR also publishes high-quality, peer-reviewed datasets, the goal in creating these data papers is to facilitate and encourage the release of high quality, peer-reviewed data sets to the robotics community; which will overcome a significant entry barrier in robotics which currently slows algorithmic development.

In 2001 IJRR was the first journal to host archival multimedia extensions alongside their articles; this freely accessible material continues to be published today.
