The IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) invites nominations for the position of Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological, and Multi-Scale Communications (T-MBMC) for a two–year term starting on January 1, 2023.
T-MBMC is devoted to the principles, design, and analysis of signaling and information systems that use physics beyond conventional electromagnetism, particularly for small-scale and multi-scale applications. This includes: molecular, quantum, and other physical, chemical and biological (and biologically-inspired) techniques; as well as new signaling techniques at these scales. As the boundaries between communication, sensing and control are blurred in such novel signaling systems, research contributions in a variety of areas are invited. Original research articles on one or more of the following topics are within the scope of the journal: mathematical modeling, information/communication-theoretic or network-theoretic analysis, networking, implementations and laboratory experiments, systems biology, data-starved or data-rich statistical analyses of biological systems, industrial applications, biological circuits, biosystems analysis and control, information/communication theory for analysis of biological systems, unconventional electromagnetism for small or multi-scale applications, and experiment-based studies on information processes or networks in biology. Contributions on related topics would also be considered for publication.
We are looking for an energetic person who can help improve the footprint of the journal. The nominee must be a member in good standing of IEEE ComSoc. He/she must have extensive IEEE editorial experience. Required qualities include: solid technical accomplishments, leadership, integrity and ethical standards, organizational and management skills, and a strong vision and set of ideas to moving the journal forward. Applicants will be considered for this position without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, or political affiliation.
The duties include, among others, the interaction with authors and the editorial board, initiating and monitoring the review process to its completion, identifying candidates for Editors, Area Editors, and Editors-at-Large, identifying guest editorial teams and assessing proposals for special issues, ensuring that the Periodical follows the IEEE Policy and Procedures, preparing a report for the IEEE Periodicals Review and Advisory Committee (PRAC), the execution of the policies established by the Editorial Board, maintaining the intellectual integrity, technical rigor, and timely operation of the journal.
The Editor-in-Chief will report to the ComSoc Director of Journals and Vice-President Publications. He/She will serve on and be a voting member of the IEEE ComSoc Publications Council. The Editor-in-Chief is expected to participate in the IEEE ComSoc Publications Council meetings and organize/lead Editorial Board meetings at IEEE ICC and IEEE Globecom.
Please submit nominations by September 10, 2022 via email to:
Octavia A. Dobre, Director of Journals, IEEE ComSoc
Nominations should include:
- Names of candidate and nominator (self-nominations are possible).
- A brief biography of the nominee of no more than one page.
- A summary statement of the candidate’s editorial experience.
- Statement of interest of up to 500 words stating the nominee’s vision for the journal and special qualifications for the position. In particular, please include a plan to increase the number of submissions and the visibility and scope of the journal.
