About ComSoc

Published: 21 Aug 2020

The IEEE Communications Magazine (ComMag) is a flagship publication of the IEEE Communications Society and the world’s most recognized magazine in Telecommunications with an Impact Factor of 11.052, an Article Influence Score of 2.914, and an Eigenfactor of 0.05217. The most important objective of the magazine is to serve its readership by publishing the highest quality papers in an accessible and tutorial format. Papers are published in three main tracks: 1) regularly scheduled Series addressing selected areas in the telecommunications field, 2) individually from open call on an ongoing basis, and 3) as part of very selective Feature Topics (FTs) which focus on emerging trends and hot subjects. The Series and Open Call (OC) form the core of the magazine and its FTs provide a popular platform for our global community to react to emerging issues.

ComMag is seeking new Series Editors (SEs) in different areas of specializations. These volunteers will work closely with the Editor-in-Chief (EiC) and Associate Editors-in-Chief (AEiCs) and become part of the editorial team/board of the magazine. The responsibilities of Series Editors include:

  • Advertising their Series. They are responsible for attracting the best papers in their domains.
  • Administering the review process of manuscripts submitted to their Series.
  • Working together with their fellow Series editors as a team.
  • Committing to doing their work in compliance with IEEE, ComSoc, and ComMag policies, procedures, and guidelines.

Series Editors may also help in the decision process of papers falling in their Series domain, but submitted to other Tracks for different reasons.

Experienced editors will be appointed from the pool of responders to this call and from other sources, as necessary to attract the best expertise possible.
