Proposing a Special Issue (for Transactions on Games)

If you are interested in guest editing a special issue, you should send a proposal to the Editor-in-Chief (Graham Kendall, Graham.Kendall@nottingham.ac.uk).

Note that From 01 Jan 2018, this journal will be renamed and will be called IEEE Transactions on Games. The scope for the new journal will be “The IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON GAMES publishes original high-quality articles covering scientific, technical, and engineering aspects of games.”

Any special issue proposal should address the newly named journal and NOT the IEEE Transactions on Computational Intelligence and AI in Games.

Preparing your Proposal

  1. Please prepare a Call for Papers which will ultimately be distributed. We would suggest that this is a maximum of one side of A4.
  2. Please provide an additional page, that presents short biographies of the proposed guest editors and why they are qualified to guest edit a special of the Transactions of Games in the area being suggested.
  3. The proposal will be sent to the journal’s Associate Editors for comment. You may be asked to revise the proposal and this iterative process will continue until a decision has been made.

Other Points to Note

  • The proposed guest editors must include a current Associate Editor of TCIAIG. This will ensure that the same standards are maintained for special issues, as for regular issues.
  • A guest editor can submit a maximum of ONE paper with them as an author.
  • A special issue cannot be related to a particular event (e.g. a conference) and submissions should be open to all
  • The editorial that is eventually written to introduce the special issue must not mention specific conferences or events
