Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Driven by 5G, the future Internet of Things (IoT) will need to support the interconnection of billions of smart devices and systems and provide access to users at any time in any place. Massive connectivity is one of the most important factors greatly affecting the success of various domains in the IoT. For example, the key to the implementation of future driverless cars in the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is to ensure secure and robust connectivity between a large number of in-motion vehicles in a high-speed dynamic environment. Therefore, determining how to design ultra-reliable and secure connectivity mechanisms/protocols in a massive connected IoT has become a research hotspot. However, large-scale interconnection and the broadcast nature of wireless communications make massive connected IoV applications vulnerable to internal threats and external attacks. In addition, due to essential differences in scale and requirements, most standard security solutions designed for conventional wireless communication systems are not applicable to 5G IoV applications. Therefore, it is essential to pursue research on new security theories, architectures, and technologies in massive connected IoT, thus forming a more secure and robust IoV connectivity system in B5G.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. World Electric Vehicle Journal is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
