IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology (J-ERM)

Call for Papers for the APMC 2020 Special Issue

The IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology (J-ERM), sponsored by IEEE MTT-S, AP-S, and EMBS societies and Sensors Council, will publish a special Issue devoted to the 2020 Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference (APMC 2020). Authors of all papers presented at the APMC 2020 are invited to submit an expanded version of their papers to the special Issue. The expanded version requires that the new technical content reports results beyond the APMC 2020 paper. Every paper will be reviewed in the same manner as all other regular submissions to this journal. Information of the journal can be found at

The focuses of the journal are on unifying the sciences and applications of medicine and biology related to utilizing electromagnetics, radio frequency signals and microwaves/millimeter-waves. If you are doubtful whether your paper is suitable for J-ERM, please write to the editors at Authors should be reminded that the overlap of texts cannot be more than 15% and the content should not be more than 40%.

Please note that:
