IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering
The IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering is committed to timely publishing of peer-reviewed technical articles that deal with the theory and applications of network science and the interconnections among the elements in a system that form a network.
In particular, the IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering publishes articles on understanding, prediction, and control of structures and behaviors of networks at the fundamental level. The types of networks covered include physical or engineered networks, information networks, biological networks, semantic networks, economic networks, social networks, and ecological networks. Aimed at discovering common principles that govern network structures, network functionalities and behaviors of networks, the journal seeks articles on understanding, prediction, and control of structures and behaviors of networks.
Another trans-disciplinary focus of the IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering is the interactions between and co-evolution of different genres of networks. The core topics covered include: Network Sampling and Measurement; Learning of Network Topology; Modeling and Estimation of Network Dynamics; Network Inference; Models of Complex Networks; Modeling of Network Evolution; Network Design; Consensus, Synchronization and Control of Complex Networks; Interactions between and Co-evolution of Different Genres of Networks; Community Formation and Detection; Complex Network Robustness and Vulnerability; Network Interdependency and Cascading Failures; Searching in Complex Networks; Information Diffusion and Propagation; Percolation and Diffusion on Networks; Epidemiology in Complex Systems.
This publication considers original works that enhance the existing body of knowledge. Original review articles and surveys are acceptable, even if new data/concepts are not presented. Results described in the article should not have been submitted or published elsewhere. Expanded versions of conference publications may be submitted. Articles must be intelligible and must be written in standard English.
- Peer Review: Peer review is vital to the quality of published research. Each article submitted to IEEE is evaluated by at least two independent reviewers selected by a member of the publication's editorial board. Learn more about the IEEE peer review process.
- Publication Fees: This publication is supported by subscriptions and applicable Article Processing Charges (APCs). If you choose to exceed the page limit of 10 complimentary pages, a charge of $220 per page will be applied, and you will receive an invoice before article publication. Although there is no cost for publishing with IEEE, authors may wish to take advantage of some of our fee-based offerings; visit the IEEE Author Center for more information on available options.
- Errors in Published Articles: Authors who have detected an error in their published article should contact the Editor-in-Chief shown above to request the publication of a correction. Note that no change may be made to the original article after it is published in IEEE Xplore. Comment or Letter to the Editor articles which discuss an article in this publication will be considered. The authors of the original article will be given the opportunity to reply to the Comment or Letter to the Editor.
