New SSIT Periodical: IEEE Transactions on Technology and Society (T-TS)
Submitted by Katina Michael

Announcing the IEEE Transactions on Technology and Society, a new IEEE periodical to complement SSIT’s existing award-winning peer reviewed IEEE Technology and Society Magazine.

The first issue of the Transactions will launch in March of 2020; the ManuscriptCentral submissions portal will open in April of 2019.

Founding Editor-in-Chief Professor Katina Michael will be accepting submissions for the multidisciplinary peer-reviewed Transactions of original research. Regular papers are expected to be up to 10 pages, short papers up to six pages, and brief papers up to two pages, using the IEEE Transactions template.

Submissions must address a socio-technical research area with empirical results. Regular papers should make both a theoretical and practical contribution to knowledge; short papers should publish empirical results; and brief papers may act as a position statement of original research drawing on peer reviewed research outcomes. For expressions of interest to serve on the editorial board as an ongoing reviewer or associate editor, or for other enquiries please email

More information about the approved IEEE Transactions can be found on this website.
