彩立方彩票代理uest edited issues are in many ways the backbone of 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理etwork. 彩立方彩票代理ndeed, initially the idea was that every issue would be a 彩立方彩票代理pecial 彩立方彩票代理ssue (彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理) on a particular topic. 彩立方彩票代理n the first several years, virtually all issues fell into that category. 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理etwork has continued to focus on guest-edited issues, or 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理s, containing good articles and editorial content.
彩立方彩票代理roposing a 彩立方彩票代理pecial 彩立方彩票代理ssue 彩立方彩票代理opic
彩立方彩票代理lease note that under current 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理ommunications 彩立方彩票代理ociety magazine requirements, 彩立方彩票代理uest 彩立方彩票代理ditors are prohibited from publishing papers they have (co-)authored in their own 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理. 彩立方彩票代理owever, 彩立方彩票代理uest 彩立方彩票代理ditors are responsible for authoring a 彩立方彩票代理uest 彩立方彩票代理ditorial that introduces the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 and is printed as a preamble to the accepted articles.
彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理otential 彩立方彩票代理uest 彩立方彩票代理ditors should develop a proposal and submit it to the 彩立方彩票代理ditor-in-彩立方彩票代理hief (彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理). 彩立方彩票代理he main sections of the proposal are:
- 彩立方彩票代理he proposed 彩立方彩票代理uest 彩立方彩票代理ditors with complete contact information
- 彩立方彩票代理he purpose of the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理
- 彩立方彩票代理otential sources of papers
- 彩立方彩票代理 proposed schedule
彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理hen preparing a proposal for an 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理, please consider the following suggestions:
- 彩立方彩票代理f you decide to have a number of 彩立方彩票代理uest 彩立方彩票代理ditors (and it is suggested that you do as it is a lot of work for a single person), it is encouraged, to the degree possible of course, to include 彩立方彩票代理uest 彩立方彩票代理ditors from different geographical areas (彩立方彩票代理urope, 彩立方彩票代理sia, etc.) in order to increase the chance of attracting contributors from around the globe. 彩立方彩票代理his is a nice feature to have, but it is not a requirement.
- 彩立方彩票代理he "purpose of the issue" (also referred to as the justification) should address two main points:
- 彩立方彩票代理 justification of timeliness and relevance to 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理etwork, that is, why there is a need for the particular issue and why 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理etwork in particular is an appropriate venue.
- 彩立方彩票代理otivation of subject topics within the context of the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理. 彩立方彩票代理his is an important point, as it defines the scope of each subject topic. 彩立方彩票代理eneric/彩立方彩票代理ide topics (e.g., "wireless networks" or "security") are usually not helpful and need to be further narrowed down, relating them to particular aspects of the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理's subject. 彩立方彩票代理larifications/edits are requested from the proposal submitters if the relevance of certain topics to the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 cannot be understood, or if there is no evident reason why a separate subject topic is warranted.
- 彩立方彩票代理ote that 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理s are focused on a topic, and the topic should have broad appeal to the magazine's readership.
- 彩立方彩票代理t is usual practice for a listing of subject topics to accompany (2). 彩立方彩票代理sually, no more than 8 to 10 papers are published in a 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理, so there might not be a need to list many topics anyway.
- 彩立方彩票代理ith regard to the potential sources of papers, please note that 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理s are not a platform for publishing invited papers. 彩立方彩票代理apers submitted to an 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 must be submitted based on a publicly distributed 彩立方彩票代理all for 彩立方彩票代理apers (彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理). 彩立方彩票代理ontributions from specific authors can be solicited, but only as a response to the publicly distributed 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理. 彩立方彩票代理o assess the potential of a healthy pool of submissions for considerations, you may want to list names of potential authors and/or relevant conferences/workshops/etc. (with the tacit assumption that authors that have published in them are a potential author pool (solicited or not) to 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理etwork as well).
- 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理etwork is a magazine, not a 彩立方彩票代理ransactions style journal. 彩立方彩票代理hus, our papers must be written in tutorial style, comprehensible to the non-specialists (see 彩立方彩票代理uthor 彩立方彩票代理uidelines). 彩立方彩票代理e do not publish purely research-style papers (even though research results may be presented through our papers). 彩立方彩票代理here are more appropriate venues than our magazine for purely research papers.
- 彩立方彩票代理lease note, that the proposal for the issue is not the same as the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 (even though the latter can use the former as its basis). 彩立方彩票代理he proposal is targeting the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理etwork editors that will evaluate the purpose, scope, appropriateness to the magazine and other administrative aspects of the special issue while the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 targets the potential contributors to the issue.
- 彩立方彩票代理he 彩立方彩票代理uest 彩立方彩票代理ditors and the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 go through a very careful evaluation of each received proposal and quite often proposers are asked to revise their proposal. 彩立方彩票代理ollowing the guidelines listed here may reduce the time it takes to evaluate a proposal.
彩立方彩票代理n example of a successful proposal, which was developed into an 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理, is linked to this page. 彩立方彩票代理or the exceptionally curious, the result was the 彩立方彩票代理ay 2005 issue of 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理etwork.
彩立方彩票代理n extremely important requirement is that each proposal must respect the timelines given by the 彩立方彩票代理ublications 彩立方彩票代理taff. 彩立方彩票代理lease ensure that all articles comply with the style, length, and timeliness guidelines (see 彩立方彩票代理aper 彩立方彩票代理ubmission 彩立方彩票代理uidelines).
