About Journal of Low Power Electronics and Applications

Aims and Scope

Journal of Low Power Electronics and Applications (ISSN 2079-9268) is an open access journal which provides an advanced forum for rapid dissemination of innovative research and important results in all aspects of low power electronics and design.

The scope of the journal encompasses a broad range of topics including emerging devices and process technologies, analog, digital and mixed-signals VLSI circuits, architecture and system-level designs, SoCs and embedded systems, harvesting and battery-less systems, synthesis and optimization tools, and CAD tools and methodologies for low-power designs.

It publishes reviews, regular research papers and short communications. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the maximum length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.
