Network & Service Management

Series Topic


The series on Network and Service Management is published twice a year, with issues appearing in July and December. The series provides articles on the latest developments in this well-established and thriving discipline. Published articles are expected to highlight recent research achievements in this field and provide insight into theoretical and practical issues related to the evolution of network and service management from different perspectives. The series provides a forum for the publication of both academic and industrial research, addressing the state of the art, theory and practice in network and service management. Both original research and review papers are welcome, in the style expected for IEEE Communications Magazine. Articles should be of tutorial nature, written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the speciality of Network and Service Management. This series therefore complements the IEEE Transactions on Network & Service Management (TNSM) General areas include but are not limited to:

  • Management models, architectures and frameworks
  • Network and service provisioning, reliability and quality assurance
  • Management functions
  • Management standards, technologies and platforms
  • Management policies
  • Applications, case studies and experiences

The above list is not exhaustive, with submissions related to interesting ideas broadly related to network and service management encouraged.

IEEE Communications Magazine is read by tens of thousands of readers from both academia and industry and has had consistently a high impact factor. The published papers will also be available on-line through Communications Magazine Interactive, the WWW edition of the magazine. Relevant details can be found at Please submit you manuscript for review through Manuscript Central ( Select "Network & Service Management Series" from the drop down menu on the submission page.
