About the Journal

5-Year Impact Factor: 0.947 [DOI: 10.13164/re]

Since 1992, the Radioengineering Journal has been publishing original scientific and engineering papers from the area of wireless communication and application of wireless technologies. The submitted papers are expected to be original research works dealing with electromagnetics (antennas, propagation, microwaves), signal processing, analog and digital circuits, optics and related fields.

The Radioengineering Journal consistently makes every effort to publish submitted papers as quickly as possible. The first round of reviews should be completed within two months. Of course, the duration of the review process may also be influenced by the specificity of the paper topic. Then, authors are expected to improve their manuscript within one month and resubmit a new paper version via the online submission system. If substantial changes are recommended and further reviews are requested by the reviewers, the publication time is prolonged. The whole review process fully respects COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers.

The Radioengineering Journal is the member of the Sister Societies' Publications of the IEEE Communications Society. The Radioengineering Journal is covered by Thomson Reuters being indexed and abstracted in Science Citation Index Expanded and Journal Citation Reports. The Radioengineering Journal is covered by the Directory of Open Access Journals, is listed in INSPEC and covered by SCOPUS.

The Radioengineering Journal is an open access journal. All content is freely available without charge to interested users who are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.

From 1st January 2022, several significant changes will be launched. The first of them applies to authors of papers accepted for publication: publication fee becomes mandatory for all published papers. The requested fee, however, is much lower than in many other impacted journals. For details, potential authors should consult section Publication Payments. By submitting their paper, it is supposed that all authors agree to pay publication fee at appropriate amount. Furthermore, accepted and paid articles, including their DOI, will be published online soon after the publication fee is received (within a week usually). The printed version of the journal will be published as before four times a year: in April, June, September and December. Since Radioengineering is fully open access journal, printed samples will not be sent to the authors. Finally, the last change concerns the reviewers. Reliable work of referees will be awarded with a publication discount, namely 40 EUR (1000 CZK) per one comprehensive review. Recognizing that the careful and responsible work of highly qualified reviewers is vital for the journal, the Editorial Board would like to encourage interested experts to send email supplemented with their professional CVs to

Opened special issues in Radioengineering Journal

The last special issue (SI) published in the Radioengineering Journal dates back to the year 2015. This SI was focused on the emerging topic of memristors and their applications. The papers published within this SI were authored by leading experts in the field, such as Prof. Chua, Prof. Biolek, Prof. Tetzlaff, and many others. These papers have already received numerous citations, making the SI highly successful.

Now, after eight years, the editorial staff of the Radioengineering Journal has decided to open a new limited number of SIs. The topics for these SIs will be carefully selected with respect to scientific soundness, application potential, and impact on the engineering community.

The journal's editorial staff offers a very fast review process, with a maximum duration of two weeks to reach a first-round decision. This process is led by distinguished experts who specialize in the research areas of the respective SI. Additionally, papers accepted for any SI will receive a 20% discount, reducing the final publication fee to 320 EUR. It is important to note that an SI does not represent a closed journal volume or number, as accepted papers will still be published on-the-fly.

1: Fractional-Order Circuits and Systems

“Circuits and systems” refer to the field encompassing all topics relating to the design, analysis, and implementation of electrical circuits. Electrical circuits are the foundation upon which all smart devices, wireless communications, automotive systems, power systems, and healthcare devices are built. An emerging area of active research is referred to as fractional-order circuits and systems, which incorporate concepts from fractional calculus into modeling and design. These concepts, focused on non-integer order differentiation and integration mathematical operations, are being explored across many fields of science and engineering. Focusing on their integration into circuits and systems, these concepts are being used to design analog filter circuits, oscillators, and control systems to name a few of their recent applications. Additionally, the use of circuit elements with fractional-order impedances are being widely explored to model the electrical characteristics of biological materials and energy storage devices (e.g. supercapacitors, batteries). There is also increased focus on the design and fabrication of fractional-order circuit components to support their transition from theoretical design to practical implementations.

The focus of this special issue is to continue to advance research on topics relating to the theory, design, implementation, and application of fractional-order circuits and systems. Topics that are invited for submission include (but are not limited to):

• Fractional-order circuit theory;

• Fractional-order filter and oscillator designs and realizations;

• Fractional-order control systems and implementations;

• Active and passive designs of fractional-order elements;

• Applications of fractional-order circuit models for biology and biomedicine;

• Applications of fractional-order circuit models for energy storage elements;

• Comprehensive reviews of recent progress in fractional-order circuits and systems.

Prospective contributors are asked to write a note in cover letter that their paper belongs to the SI: Fractional-Order Circuits and Systems during the initial paper upload process. Deadline for initial paper submission is 1st July 2024. Here, you can find, download and distribute document Call for Papers.

2: AI-Driven Secure Communication in Massive IoT for 5G and Beyond

The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has increased the potential for the collection, sharing, and analysis of massive amounts of data. Consequently, there is a growing need for secure communications to safeguard sensitive data and ensure privacy. For this purpose, among others, different methods and algorithms of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be used. AI-driven secure communication in massive IoT for fifth generation (5G) wireless communication and beyond holds significant potential for enhancing security across various applications. This technology can enable secure communication in large-scale and heterogeneous networks, ensuring end-to-end security and privacy.

Authentication represents a pivotal challenge in AI-driven secure communication within the realm of massive IoT for 5G and future technologies. It plays a crucial role in ensuring that solely authorized devices gain access to the network, thereby fortifying its defenses against malicious entities. Leveraging AI, machine learning algorithms can enhance authentication processes by detecting and thwarting malicious activities. End-to-end encryption stands as a fundamental requirement for secure communication within IoT networks. By employing AI, the encryption process can be actively monitored to identify and address vulnerabilities and potential malicious endeavors. Furthermore, the detection of anomalous behaviors within IoT networks poses potential security threats. Through the application of AI, machine learning algorithms can be utilized to identify patterns in the data, enabling the detection of suspicious activities.
