Factory automation and control 

Any other proposals within the scope of the journal are welcome:

The following information is required upon submission: Special Issue title, introduction, and planned paper list.

The duties of Guest Editors are as follows:

  • Re-defining the title and scope of the Special Issue;
  • Making decisions on whether a manuscript can be accepted based on the reports we collect;
  • Promoting the Special Issue and increasing its visibility at related academic conferences.

The benefits granted to Guest Editors include full/partial waivers of publishing fees for their first submission in the Special Issue.

Guest Editorship: Once your proposal is approved, your first task is to organize a team of 2–3 Editors. This is intended to balance the workload and enable internal discussions if any controversial issues arise. Moreover, as Guest Editors have different research networks, cooperation broadens the coverage of potential authors, thereby increasing the influence of the Special Issue. The Publisher and EiC will review these Co-Editors to ensure that they meet the journal’s editorial requirements. We encourage teams to include Editors from multiple institutions and locations. This diversity reduces potential conflicts of interest and helps the issue to reach a wider audience.

If you are interested in editing a Special Issue, please contact us before 31 December 2020. To propose or request further information, please contact the Electronics Editorial Office ([email protected]). We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Electronics (ISSN 2079-9292; CODEN: ELECGJ) is an international peer-reviewed open access journal on the science of electronics and its applications. It is published monthly online by MDPI. The journal has been indexed by Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science) since Vol. 4 (2015), Inspec (IET) and Scopus (2019 CiteScore: 1.9). The manuscripts are peer-reviewed, and a first decision is provided to authors approximately 13.4 days after submission; acceptance for publication is undertaken within 3.4 days (median value for papers published in this journal in the first half of 2020).
