IEEE Wireless Communications Tops Citation Rankings for Impact Factor in Telecommunications
IEEE Wireless Communications, Editor-in-Chief, Hsiao-Hwa Chen
IEEE Wireless Communications covers technical, policy and standard issues relating to wireless communications in all media (and combinations of media), and at all protocol layers. All wireless/mobile communications, networking, computing and services will be covered. Each issue of this interdisciplinary magazine provides tutorial articles of high quality and depth concerning the revolutionary technological advances in wireless/mobile communications, networking and computing.

According to the Thomson Reuters 2013 Journal Citation Reports, the impact factor of the IEEE Wireless Communications in 2013 is 6.524 and the 5-years impact factor is 5.123. Thomson Reuters calculates the impact factor of a journal in a given year by dividing the number of articles published in the journal in the preceding two years by the number of citations to those articles from articles indexed in the Thomson Reuters database and published in the given year. 8 out of top 10 publications in the area of communications technology and science are published or co-sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society.
