Journals
  • IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM)
    TNSM publishes four issues per year – March, June, September and December. Papers can be submitted for possible publication at any time. Acceptance rate is typically 15%; paper review time is 2 to 3 months. Papers are published online only (IEEE Xplore, ComSoc DL), printed edition is not available.
  • IEEE Communications Magazine – Network & Service Management Series
    The series is published twice a year, with issues appearing in April and October. Time between submission and publication is typically 6 months; acceptance rate is typically 20%. In 2012, IEEE Communications Magazine is ranked 18 out of 77 in the ‘Telecommunications’ category of the Journal Citation Reports®, Thomson Reuters (Impact Factor: 3.661).
    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 TNSM, JNSM and IJNM.
