Bullet Jobs: Sensors & Transducers journal: Guest Editors Wanted


Sensors &Transducers journal: Guest Editors Wanted. The Sensors & Transducers journal (ISSN: 2306-8515, e-ISSN 1726-5479) is looking for Guest Editors on a payment basis on a diversity of topics:

  • Sensor Instrumentation, Data Acquisition Systems and Virtual Instruments

  • Physical Sensors, Chemical Sensors, Biosensors, Immunosensors

  • Smart Sensors and Intelligent Sensor Systems

  • MEMS and Modern Technologies

  • Sensor Buses, Interfaces and Protocols

  • Electronic Circuits, Signal Conditioning and ASIC for Sensors

More details about the journal is available at journal's home page

The guest editors will be responsible for distribution of Call for Articles (we will help with this) and collection of articles for special, regular, supplement or conference's issues.We appreciate collaborations with scholars all over the world. Guest Editors can suggest a hot topic and approaches colleagues from the same research field to contribute an articles to our journal's issues. The number of articles from Guest Editors are not limited.

Each of guest editor will earn 25 % from publication fees, paid for collected and published articles.

Example: A guest editor has collected 15 articles from Upper Middle Income countries: 10 articles for standard publication and 5 articles for rapid publication:
10 x 470.00 EUR + 5 x 680.00 EUR = 4700 + 3400 = 8100 EUR. The commissions for the guest editor will be the following: 8100/100 x 25 = 2025.00 EUR
