Guest Editor Proposals for IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing Special Issues
TDSC solicits proposals to guest edit special issues

Your proposal should contain at least the following sections:

  1. Proposed Title: It should be clear and consider. We recommend the title be no more than five words.
  2. Proposers’ Information: It should include names, affiliations, and contact information (postal address, electronic address, web URL, telephone number, and fax number).
  3. Introduction: The proposers need to describe a special theme and how it fits in the larger context of IEEE TDSC including its relevance to IEEE TDSC readers such as importance, timeliness, target audience, and so on. IEEE
    TDSC will not accept the proposals whose theme does not complement other recent publications in IEEE TDSC.
  4. Scope and Research Issues: The proposers should explain the scope and research issues that the proposed special issues will address. The following question should be elaborated as well: If other publications have
    addressed similar topic, how will this special issue differ? Also, it must include what IEEE TDSC readers will learn and whether this information is available elsewhere.
  5. List of Potential Reviewers and Authors: The proposers should form preliminary reviewers. As a refereed publication, all manuscripts submitted to IEEE TDSC must be refereed and are not guaranteed acceptance. The
    majority of manuscripts that finally appear in the issue will likely be the result of the proposers’ solicitation. The proposer should propose an acceptable plan for ensuring enough high-quality submissions. Guest
    editors may not submit articles other than the guest editorial for possible inclusion.
  6. Call for Papers (CFPs): Along with your proposal, specific and clear CFPs must be submitted.
  7. Qualifications of the Guest Editors (GEs): In addition to technical qualifications, highlight your experience as editors, in IEEE TDSC and other publications. Attach a biography of up to two pages for each GE, including a list of the five most relevant publications. Two GEs are preferable to each special issue.
