LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 17 May 2013 – IEEE Computer Society, in conjunction with two other IEEE societies, will be introducing a new journal on network science and engineering in 2014. The journal is currently seeking an editor in chief.
IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering (TNSE) will publish peer-reviewed technical articles on the theory and applications of network science and the interconnections that form a network. The networks covered range from information, biological, and semantic networks to economic, social, and ecological networks.
Produced by the IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Communications Society, and IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, the journal seeks articles on understanding, prediction, and control of structures and behaviors of networks.
Applications are currently being accepted for an inaugural editor in chief to serve a three-year term. Candidates should possess a good understanding of industry, academic, and government aspects of the field, demonstrated managerial skills, and the ability to attract respected experts to the editorial board.
Major responsibilities include

managing reviews of manuscripts;
• directing editorial board members to seek special-issue proposals and manuscripts in specific areas;
