IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine


The IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine is a premier quarterly magazine established as an international technical reference in its main areas of interest: mobile radio, connected and automated vehicles, automotive electronics, and transportation systems. In conjunction with original technical papers, the magazine features editorial columns describing the latest news and developments in mobile radio, connected and automated vehicles, automotive electronics, transportation systems, standards, educational activities and Society news.

Prospective authors are invited to submit open call papers following the instructions provided on the Paper Submission Section. The magazine seeks original application, tutorial, or survey-style papers describing new breakthrough ideas and technologies in mobile radio, connected and automated vehicles, automotive electronics, and transportation systems. Prospective authors are also invited to submit a contribution to our open special issues.

IEEE Press

The new IEEE Press Series on Vehicular Technology will complement the Society’s other publications by focusing on the production of 300-500 page books that provide a more comprehensive and in-depth treatment of specific topics within the Society’s Fields of Interest.

The Society recently sponsored a 375-page book entitled, Land-Mobile Communications Engineering, which is a compilation of 38 reprint papers organized into three parts, mobile radio propagation mobile data communications, and mobile communications above 800 MHz.  Members receive a substantial discount when purchasing the book from IEEE Press. The Society plans further Press Books and seeks contributing authors.

Inquiries from prospective authors are most welcome! Please contact the series editor, Prof. David G. Michelson.



All IEEE journals require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCIDs enable accurate attribution and improved discoverability of an author’s published work. The author will need a registered ORCID in order to submit a manuscript or review a proof in this journal.

Follow these steps to link a ScholarOne account to a registered ORCID

  1. Login to ScholarOne and click on your name in the top right corner of the screen
  2. Click E-mail / Name in the drop-down menu
  3. In the ORCID section at the top of the page, click the appropriate link to either register for a new ORCID or associate the account with an existing ORCID
  4. A new page will open to create and/or validate your ORCID. Once the validation is complete, the new page will close and you will return to ScholarOne
  5. Save the changes to your ScholarOne user account

Authors who do not have an ORCID in their ScholarOne user account will be prompted to provide one during submission.
