Network (ISSN 2673-8732) is an international, open access journal in science and technology for all original research on networks and related fields. It publishes reviews, original research articles, communications, letters, and perspectives. Our aim is to provide an advanced forum for scientists to share their novel ideas and solid research, in order to promote the crucial field of network technology.

The journal publishes all topics of interest involved in the networks area, including, but not limited to, the control and analysis of networks, the design of protocols and architectures of networks, network security and service management, the design of network components, and interdisciplinary aspects of networks.

There is no restriction on the maximum length of the papers. Full experimental details should be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure—if unable to be published in a normal way—can be deposited as supplementary material.
