Antennas help communicate the World. Antennas make
possible that millions of people can watch the Champi-
ons League. Antenn as allow the position ing of billions of
vehicles around our planet. And they also allow handling
vehicles through our neighbor planets. By propagating
waves through antennas you can send huge amounts of
data in milliseconds. Besides, you can also tell somebody
that you love him or her. Antennas have allowed com-
municate the people in these places where cables cannot.
But antennas are not only used for communication.
Antennas can be used for heating food, for detecting
people, for guiding vessels, for founding treasures, for
monitoring breath, for harvesting energy and so forth.
Everybody from everywhere in the world must to take
advantage of these advances. In this sense, open plat-
forms for promoting, sharing and discussing new issues
and development on these topics are required. The Open
Journal of Antennas and Propagation (OJAPr) is born
with the aim of becoming a reference in this field. Scien-
tist, academicians and technicians are encouraged to
submit their new achievements to OJAPr. Theoretical
analysis, numerical modeling or experimental measure-
ments are warmly welcomed. We are interested in active,
adaptive and array antennas, antennas’ characteristics
(gain, efficiency, impedance …), modeling methods (fi-
nite differences, finite elements, moments …), antenna
systems (beam control, wireless communications …).
Different communication schemes are supported such as
regular papers, short reports or book reviews. OJAPr
follows a strict peer-review process in order to warrant
the quality of the communications.
We are convinced that we will be linked.
