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.

Publishing in IEEE Software is a unique way to reach a practitioner audience. Google Scholar’s h5-index positions it 10th among all software engineering venues (including conferences) and fourth among journals.

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, and usability.

IEEE Software solicits theme issue proposals from potential guest editors (GEs). Although anyone can submit a proposal at any time, we’re soliciting proposals so that we can collect a number of theme issues for IEEE Software’s editorial board to discuss. We expect at least one GE from industry and one from academia. We also encourage geographical diversity of the GEs.

Submit your proposal via EasyChair at Guidelines and templates are at For information on previous issues of IEEE Software, see, under the “Themes” menu item.

The theme issue associate editor will perform the initial check of the proposal. If a proposal has potential, the theme issue associate editor will submit it to the IEEE Software editorial and advisory board members for evaluation. Members of the IEEE Software initiatives team might also provide input. The evaluation will be based on technical accuracy, objectivity, balance, GE capability, proposal quality, and relationship to other recent and planned theme issues. On the basis of the board members’ comments, the theme issue associate editor will decide whether the proposal should be accepted, revised, or rejected.

The lead editor, in cooperation with IEEE Computer Society staff, will set up the schedule for any accepted theme issues.

Editor in Chief: Diomidis Spinellis, Athens University of Economics and Business
