LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 19 November 2019 – The IEEE Computer Society (IEEE CS) today announces that Song Guo, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, has been appointed the inaugural editor in chief of the IEEE Open Journal of the Computer Society (OJ-CS), for the 2020–2022 term. The new journal, dedicated to publishing articles on the latest emerging topics and trends in all aspects of computing, will publish its first articles in 2020.

Prof. Guo’s research interests are in big data, cloud computing, mobile computing, and distributed systems, with more than 450 papers published in major conferences and journals. Guo is an associate editor of four IEEE publications, has served as chair for numerous IEEE conferences, and is currently on the IEEE Communications Society’s Board of Governors.

OJ-CS is a rigorously peer-reviewed forum for rapid publication of open access articles describing high-impact results in all areas of interest to the IEEE CS. This journal is fully open and compliant with funder mandates, including Plan S.

“I am delighted to announce that, in 2020, we will be launching OJ-CS as the latest addition to our high-quality portfolio,” said Fabrizio Lombardi, the IEEE CS’s Vice President for Publications. “The new journal will exemplify the best tradition of the Computer Society in highly peer-reviewed publication together with the requirements of a fast publication cycle and full compliance for Gold Open Access (OA). OJ-CS will have at its helm Prof. Song Guo, an accomplished researcher who will provide the technical expertise and intellectual guidance to move this publication into the highest echelons of the OA arena. The Computer Society is committed to providing all constituencies, from authors to readers, with advanced and timely coverage of computing-related research to advance technology, innovation, and education on a worldwide basis.”

 OJ-CS draws on the expert technical community to continue IEEE’s commitment to publishing the most highly cited content. “IEEE’s publishing program continues to grow and evolve,” said Stephen Welby, IEEE Executive Director and COO. “IEEE continues to support open science and provide more options and choices to support the work and needs of all authors and researchers — those who prefer to publish in traditional subscription journals and those who prefer or need to publish in open access journals.”

Authors are invited to be among the first to have an article peer-reviewed and published in this new journal. Research published in the new open access journal will be hosted on the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, visited by over five million unique users per month. Author information and submission requirements can be found at Author Resources.

Independent editorial boards will drive the IEEE CS’s commitment to publish high-quality articles including cutting-edge studies and breakthroughs in technology innovation.  The new journal will follow the IEEE CS’s established high standard of peer review, drawing on expert technical communities to continue to publish the most highly cited content.  Learn more about the IEEE CS’s trusted publications at Publications.
