Three New Journals Coming in 2011

Cover circuits and systems, photovoltaics, and terahertz science

6 December 2010

IEEE plans to launch three journals in 2011, covering circuits and systems, photovoltaics, and terahertz science.

The IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems will be aimed at research in smart systems, ambient intelligence, sensor networks, nanotechnology, smart power, bioinspired electronics and bioinformatics, security, and green circuits and systems. The quarterly, sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, is to include in-depth research as well as more general articles geared to a wide audience of scientists and engineers.

The biannual IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics will cover fundamentals and new concepts, PV systems, thin-film solar cells, concentrator solar cells, organic PV, and advances in PV characterization. The IEEE Electron Devices and IEEE Power & Energy societies are sponsoring the journal.

IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology will be dedicated to research on devices and systems operating in the terahertz frequency range. The biannual is expected to cover basic science and applications of the THz spectrum to biology, medicine, imaging, atmospheric and environmental science, remote sensing, radio astronomy, spectroscopy, telecommunications, and security. Other articles will explore nondestructive evaluation and ultrafast science using pulsed THz beams. The IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society is the journal's sponsor.

All three publications will be available through the IEEE Xplore digital library, from various IEEE online collections, and by individual subscription.
