Call For Papers



IEEE Software is a peer-reviewed professional magazine with a broad coverage of topics pertaining to software development. Its mission is building the community of leading software practitioners. It delivers reliable, useful, leading-edge software development information to keep engineers and managers abreast of rapid technology change.

The magazine positions itself between pure research and pure practice, transferring ideas, methods, and experiences among researchers and engineers. Peer-reviewed articles and columns by real-world experts illuminate all aspects of software development, including software requirements, software architecture and design, process improvement, project management, development tools, software maintenance, web applications and opportunities, professional practices, testing, usability, and much more.

IEEE Software solicits theme issue proposals by guest editors.

While anyone can submit a proposal at any time, we are soliciting a Call for Theme issues with the main goal to collect a number of theme issues to be discussed during the next IEEE Software meeting.

We expect at least one guest editor (GE) from industry and one from academia. Geographical diversity of the GEs is also encouraged.

Proposals must be submitted via EasyChair at
by following the guidelines and template available at

The folder contains:
- IEEE Sw_Solicitation&ReviewProcess.pdf: a description of the solicitation and review process;
- IEEE Sw_Theme Issue Proposal Template.rtf/.docx: the template to be used for your submission;
- PUBLISHED IEEE SW Issues (2012-2016).pdf: the list of past IEEE SW theme issues.

The Theme Issue associate editor performs the initial check on the proposal.

If a proposal has potential, the theme issue editor submits it to the IEEE Software Editorial and
Advisory board members for evaluation. Input is also received by members of the IEEE Software initiatives team.

The members’ evaluation is based on technical accuracy, objectivity, balance, guest editors capability, proposal quality, and relationship to other planned and recent focus sections.

Based on the board members comments, the Theme Issue associate editor decides whether the proposal should be accepted, revised, or rejected.

The Lead Editor in cooperation with IEEE Computer Society staff sets up the schedule for any accepted theme issues.
