Aims and Scope: Wireless Personal Communications

Wireless Personal Communications is an archival, peer-reviewed, scientific and technical journal publishing tutorial, survey and original research papers considering theoretical, engineering and experimental aspects.

The journal accepts five main types of papers: (i) full technical papers subject to normal review procedures; (ii) short papers subject to a review process and shorter publication times; (iii) papers for a special section on the technical aspects of policy and standardisation; (iv) letters containing new research thoughts and experimental ideas; and (v) invited papers on specific topics by renowned experts.

The journal thus serves scientists working in both universities and research laboratories, as well as practising engineers. The journal covers the following broad areas in radio communications, voice, data, images and combinations (i.e., multimedia):

Propagation aspects;
System models: modulation channel coding;
Speech and image coding;
Multiple access techniques: CDMA, FDMA, RMA, TDMA;
Protocols performance evaluation;
Radio local area networks;
Networking and architectures;
Spectrum resource allocation (dynamic channel allocation, handoff and power control);
Land mobile radio systems: satellite, outdoor and indoor systems;
Communicaton aspects of intelligent vehicle highway systems;
Infrared communications;
MM wave communication systems;
Consumer communications;
Computer communications;
Radiolink design, wireless and multimedia terminals and operation;
Services and applications of PCS (Personal Communications Systems) and SDS (Radio Data Systems);
Antennas and diversity systems;
Technological aspects: particularly laboratory models and developments;
Policy issues and frequency regulations: technical aspects;
Future communication systems.
