Proposals to organize a special issue for the International Journal of Network Management (IJNM) should be submitted by email to the associate editor: Aiko Pras, with a Cc to the editor in chief: James Hong.

Proposal contents

Each proposal should include:

  • Proposed title of the issue
  • Name of guest editor and one or two co-editor(s)
  • Contact information, positions, and affiliations
  • Previous experiences in organizing special issues / conferences in the area of network management
  • A draft version of the Call for Papers
  • A description on how the Call for Papers will be distributed. What mailing-lists do you expect to use?
  • An indication of the number of expected papers and where they will come from
  • A description of the review process and the acceptance criteria
  • A list of potential reviewers. Note: you should expect a substantial number to decline, for whatever reason. Therefore make sure you have sufficient alternatives
  • A tentative timetable (see below)

Review process

It is essential to have a thorough review process, with (at least) 3 independent reviewers per paper. Papers coming from the organizers should be avoided. The guest editors are expected to write an editorial, however.
