Editorial Opportunities/Article Submissions

Microwave Journal cover, February 2018The editors of Microwave Journal invite you to consider publishing an article. To see your work published is a satisfying recognition of the successful outcome of engineering principles applied to problem solving, blended with creativity, attention to detail and determination.

Of interest to our readers are technical articles describing a product design, the development or application of technology and tutorials on the use of RF/microwave technology in interesting applications.

Microwave Journal covers all markets using RF/microwave technology, such as 5G, IoT, broadband, satellite communications, military systems and commercial radar. We publish articles describing the subsystems, components and technologies that make these applications possible: active antennas, amplifiers, oscillators, control components, semiconductors, passive components, cables and connectors, test and measurement and electronic design software tools.

Unfortunately, the number of articles we receive exceeds the number of pages available in the printed magazine, so we can’t publish everything in the magazine. However, if we can’t publish an article in print, we can post it online at MicrowaveJournal.com.

Microwave Journal's 2019 Editorial Calendar

To Submit an Article

If you have an idea for an article, please email an abstract to Patrick Hindle, at phindle@mwjournal.com.

If you have already written an article, please email it as a PDF file. No special format is required; however, please include the text, references and all figures. Articles will be reviewed by our Editorial Review Board (ERB) to determine our interest. The ERB considers the following:

  • The subject is relevant and of interest to Microwave Journal readers.
  • Design articles contribute something “new” to the technical literature and don’t repeat prior work.
  • Design articles include both simulated and measured data, with any discrepancies explained.
  • Antenna articles include measured antenna patterns.
  • The article should be complete and clear.
  • The same article was not published in another publication.

Articles published in Microwave Journal typically run from 2,000 to 3,000 words and may include up to a dozen tables and figures (graphs, drawings, photographs) to help tell the story.
