Wireless Networks and Mobile Services

Area Editors

The use of wireless technologies for vehicular communication networks and mobile services, including, but not limited to, network architecture, protocol, and algorithm design; resource management; mobility management; quality of services; network security and privacy; network measurement and analysis; network management; spectrum sharing and multiple access techniques; routing, multicast, and groupcast; energy-efficient and sustainable networks; content distribution and distributed AI applications; wireless mobile sensor networks and Internet of Vehicles (IoV); edge computing/intelligence. 

Vehicular Electronics and Systems

Area Editors

The use of electronic or electrical components and systems for control, propulsion, or auxiliary functions, including but not limited to, electronic controls for engineer, drive train, convenience, safety, and other vehicle systems; sensors, actuators, and microprocessors for onboard use; electronic fuel control systems; vehicle electrical components and systems collision avoidance systems; electromagnetic compatibility in the vehicle environment; and electric/hybrid vehicles and controls.

Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Systems

Area Editors

The use of electrical, communications, and electronics technology for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) including, but not limited to, architectures, protocols, and algorithms for CAVs, vehicle localization, travel planning, collision avoidance, platooning, decision-making and intelligent control; security, privacy, and dependability; traffic aid systems; traffic control systems; automatic vehicle identification, railway communications and networking; automated transport systems and autonomous driving; moving walkways or people-movers ground transportation systems, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).

Description

The IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (TVT) is a scholarly journal dedicated solely to vehicular technology. 

The TVT has been an important venue for both academia and industry to share research results to accelerate R&D activities in vehicular technology. In the first 6 months of 2020, the journal received 707,591 downloads in the IEEE Xplore usage, ranking 7th among 288 IEEE journals. Its impact factor has been increasing steadily since 2004, as shown in the following table:

Year 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014
2-year impact factor 1.490 1.921 2.063 2.642 1.978
Year 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019
2-year impact factor 2.243 4.066 4.432 5.339 5.379
Year 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024
2-year impact factor 5.978        

TVT strives to be on the vanguard of vehicular technology research and, as such, encourages submissions focused on emerging and promising fields that will interest its readers. To better serve the community, the journal has been publishing special sections, focusing on vehicular electronics and intelligent transportation systems, and some topics which are of interest to the mobile communications and networking community. 

Publishing Policies

This publication considers original works that enhance the existing body of knowledge. Original review articles and surveys are acceptable, even if new data/concepts are not presented. Results described in the article should not have been submitted or published elsewhere. Expanded versions of conference publications may be submitted. Articles must be intelligible and must be written in standard English.

Peer Review: Peer review is vital to the quality of published research. Each article submitted to IEEE is evaluated by at least two independent reviewers selected by a member of the publication's editorial board. Learn more about the IEEE peer review process.

Publication Fees: This publication is supported by subscriptions and applicable Article Processing Charges (APCs). If you choose to exceed the page limit of 10 complimentary pages, a charge of $220 per page will be applied, and you will receive an invoice before article publication.  Although there is no cost for publishing with IEEE, authors may wish to take advantage of some of our fee-based offerings; visit the IEEE Author Center for more information on available options.

Errors in Published Articles: Authors who have detected an error in their published article should contact the Editor-in-Chief shown above to request the publication of a correction. Note that no change may be made to the original article after it is published in IEEE Xplore. Comment or Letter to the Editor articles which discuss an article in this publication will be considered. The authors of the original article will be given the opportunity to reply to the Comment or Letter to the Editor. Submit your Comment or Letter to the Editor article via Submit Manuscript at the top of the page.
