IEEE Electron Devices Magazine

 March 2024 Magazine Cover

The IEEE Electron Devices Magazine is published quarterly, with issues appearing in March, June, September and December. The magazine focuses on the publication of peer-reviewed tutorial and survey papers related to the wider field of electron devices and its applications. This may also include articles dealing with environmental, societal, and humanitarian issues. Besides, columns by renowned experts are included, dealing with educational, industrial and open topics and sharing personal opinions in a compact format. Also, news related to the Electron Devices Society are displayed in the magazine, including the President's Column and Conference reports.

Most issues of the Electron Devices Magazine include a "focus section," in which the technical features are invited by the guest editor. Each issue will be displayed in light of the given focus topic, thus guest editors will be appointed far in advance, as reflected by the Editorial Calendar. The magazine also contains contributed technical articles on all topics related to the field of electron devices. However, authors are advised to try matching their submission to the Editorial Calendar, though this is not a strict requirement. The technical content of the magazine is about 60 pages per issue, consisting of feature articles, and a number of columns, as well as editorial and news items.



Developing an article for the magazine is rather different from writing for a technical journal. Other than papers in IEEE Transactions, Journals and Letters, they do not necessarily need to present original research. The aim should be at comprehensive information, review, and education about a selected topic in a language and style that is appealing to the non-expert reader as well as to the specialist. Guidelines for preparation of magazine feature articles can be found at the following link:
