Publication ethics and malpractice statement


The EAI Transactions on Wireless Spectrum (TWS) is a scholarly archival journal committed to the timely publication of high-quality manuscripts on advancing the science and engineering of wireless radio spectrum. TWS seeks the state-of-the-art research on both theoretical contributions (including new models, architectures, protocols, tools, concepts, and analyses) and practical contributions (including new techniques, prototypes, deployment, system experiments, and new applications). All submissions will go through a rigorous peer-review process. The general scope of the journal includes, but is not limited to, the following topics: • Spectrum sensing algorithm and white space modeling • Spectrum sharing architecture and mechanism • Spectrum-efficient design • Dynamic spectrum management • Spectrum pricing, auction and trading • Game theory for dynamic spectrum access • Spectrum mobility control • Reconfigurable wireless platforms • Medium access control design for cognitive radio networks • Spectrum agile and adaptive routing • Security of wireless systems in the context of spectrum sharing • Interference analysis, measurements and statistical models of spectrum usage • Coexistence with legacy wireless systems • Novel radio architectures and antennas • Simulation tools, testbeds, hardware and software prototypes • Regulation and standardization
