Aims & Scope


CN, a quarterly journal, dedicates to the latest advancements in communications and network technologies. The goal of this journal is to keep a record of the state-of-the-art research and promote the research work in these fast moving areas. 

All manuscripts submitted to CN must be previously unpublished and may not be considered for publication elsewhere at any time during CN's review period. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The topics to be covered by Communications and Network include, but are not limited to:

  • We are also interested in short papers, as in the form of a letter, that clearly address a specific narrow problem and in papers that survey problems and new results pertaining to a certain topic. Authors may be invited to write short papers on the same topic in more than one successive issue of CN.
