A proposal for an SI must contain the following information:The goal of MMTC Communications – Frontiers is to provide readers up-to-date technical advances on one particular topic. Each special issue of IEEE MMTC Communications – Frontiers features a collection of papers edited by guest editors. These papers are contributed by invited authors or authors responding to a call-for-paper proposed by the lead Guest Editor (GE). An SI typically consists of 4 to 6 papers, with each paper 2 to 4 pages of length.

  • Proposed title for the special issue.
  • Sufficiently detailed description of the intended topic and the significance of this topic.
  • Name, contact information, affiliation of GE team and a brief description of their areas of expertise
  • Proposed call-for-papers
  • Tentative Time-table for paper invitation and publication schedule

Upon the proposal is approved by IEEE ComSoc MMTC, Guest Editors are responsible for:

  • Distribution of the call-for-papers to potential authors
  • Carrying out correspondence with the authors and collect the manuscripts
  • Providing IEEE ComSoc MMTC Communications Frontiers Board the complete and approved versions of the papers formatted in the MMTC Communications Frontiers’ style, along with authors’ contact information, photos and biographies
  • Including one introductory editorial to be put together with all invited papers
