IEEE’s periodicals are considered a hallmark of technical excellence. I feel privileged to have served as an editor-in-chief of one of our transactions and later as chair of three committees: Transactions, Periodicals, and Periodicals Review. Our authors and readers justifiably expect a shorter submission-to-publication time. Realizing these needs, as vice president of IEEE Technical Activities, I launched the “train-the-trainer” workshops aimed at continuous recruitment and training of reviewers and associate editors. In addition, if elected President, I will work with editors on publishing reproducible research that connects to data repositories. I will also promote editorial policies that increase article relevance for industry practitioners and embrace non-traditional works dealing with the impact of technology on society.
