IEEE-TTS Editorial Board
The manuscript submission system known as Manuscript Central encapsulates the end-to-end workflow between the editor-in-chief, the co-editors, the associate editors, and reviewers. All actions of individuals in this workflow are auditable. For example, the system archives all correspondence between reviewers and associate editors as well as advice from co-editors/editor-in-chief regarding acceptance, revision, or rejection of a manuscript.
Manuscripts submitted to the Manuscript Central portal undergo some basic desk review to establish whether the manuscript meets requirements. If the manuscript is out of scope, poorly written, or does not adhere to the IEEE referencing schema, the administrator (i.e., one of the co-editors) will notify the author(s).
The editorial board provides expert advice on content. The breadth of technology and society spans across the five pillars of IEEE SSIT, consisting of sustainable development; ethics/human values; universal access; societal impacts; and protecting the planet. The editor-in-chief deliberately identified subject matter experts who are also able to attract new authors and encourage submissions via their immediate networks.
IEEE-TTS Publications Board
The publication board serves as an at-large editorial advisory board. Each member of this board is an expert in matters pertaining to technology and society and has had heavy engagement with editorial boards in the past. The publication board will be establishing guidelines for the submission of manuscripts and identifying the types of papers (i.e., short, brief, regular, invited) authors can submit. The publication board will also become active in inviting targeted authors to submit seminal work to the Transactions.
IEEE-TTS Steering Committee
The role of the steering committee is to provide support, guidance and oversight on the progress of the Transactions. Members of the steering committee do not have day-to-
The steering committee will have formal semiannual teleconference meetings and will also engage in ad hoc brainstorming sessions using collaborative tools. Members of the steering committee will attract paper submissions through their own respective channels and networks, but more importantly, they will steer the Transactions toward critical areas of concern that require addressing in the domain of technology
