Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics

Sponsors: Industry Applications Society (IAS), Power Electronics Society (PELS)

Power electronics has matured as a discriminating technology for a wide variety of applications in appliances, commercial settings, energy efficiency, handheld devices, industrial settings, and transportation.  The technology has evolved tremendously to approach a wide range of applications and implementations that push limits in dynamics and energy conversion performance.  As a result, the amount of research work for emerging and selected topics as well as the need for close collaborations among academia, industry, and research are growing at an unprecedented speed.  The challenge in the coming years lies in developing new techniques at the lowest possible cost, size, and weight for emerging applications.  To address this technology trend and to serve members better, the IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics (JESTPE) was launched.

Anyone who is interested in creating a special issue with JESTPE should view the list of previously published special issues and JESTPE's official scope to determine if their proposal would be unique and within the scope of JESTPE.  More information about JESTPE special issues can be found in the guidelines below.

Special Issue Guidelines

When creating a proposal, please use the following files as templates when proposing the special issue: 

Proposal Template

GE and GAE Template

When completed, please send them to the Deputy Editor in Chief Fernando Briz for consideration.  The proposers will then be notified if their special issue proposal is accepted or rejected.  If accepted, the guest editors of the special issue will process the submissions in ScholarOne Manuscripts/Manuscript Central.  Once all of the submissions are finalized, the guest editors will receive additional information, including guidance on writing a guest editorial for the special issue.

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be submitted through Manuscript Central.  Papers that are submitted will be reviewed by the JESTPE editorial board, including guest editors for special issues and sections.  The papers are screened for plagiarism before acceptance and are peer-reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual(sections 8.2.1.C & 8.2.2.A).  Published articles have been reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer-review process, which is when the reviewers' identities are not known to the authors but the reviewers know the authors' identities.
