IEEE Sensors Alert invites applications for Content Managers. Content Managers are needed for selecting the articles to be condensed. If you are a technical expert of sensors domain, preferably an IEEE Fellow, or a senior member with publication experience, who regularly reads IEEE publications, please apply to be a Content Manager, include a brief statement of qualifications, and specify the publication(s) you are willing to cover. The job is easy; i.e., when you read a new article that is especially interesting, important or newsworthy, send a message to [email protected] with copy to [email protected]com, identify the article, and include a short explanation as to why the article is worthy of inclusion in IEEE Sensors Alert.
Desired Qualifications of a Content Manager
A Content Manager (CM) should be:
- An IEEE Fellow or a senior member with a significant record of publications, an editor of an IEEE journal, or experience as a member of a technical program committee of a financially sponsored IEEE conference.
- A technical expert in at least one of IEEE Sensors Council’s fields-of-interest, and who regularly reads IEEE and related publications to maintain awareness in the theory and practice.
- Willing to identify articles in fields of expertise that are especially important, newsworthy, and interesting to practitioners and non-specialists and suitable for IEEE Sensors Alert.
Applicants should specify the publication(s) they are willing to cover and include a CV. Applications for a Content Manager may be sent to [email protected] with copy to [email protected]com.
Content Managers (CMs) Duties
- Identify articles that are especially important, newsworthy, and interesting to practitioners and non-specialists. On the average , each CM should identify at least one article from IEEE Sensors Journal, IEEE Sensors Letters, IEEE IoT Journal, Journal on Flexible Electronics, transactions and journals of any of the member societies of IEEE Sensors Council (https://ieee-sensors.org/member-societies/), and at least one article per financially sponsored conference proceedings which relates with sensors or sensing systems
- Write a few sentences that explain the significance of the article. Is the article suitable for IEEE Sensors Alert, i.e., interesting to non-specialists? What are the significant contributions? What are the implications? Who will benefit? Send the explanation, the article’s title and Digital Object Identifier (DOI)  to [email protected] with copy to [email protected]com.
- CMs are welcome to write the condensed versions, but this is not required. The articles selected for IEEE Sensors Alert will be condensed by professional technical writers into a maximum of 500 words, written in layman’s language.
- CMs may be asked to review the condensed version for accuracy and clarity. When this request is made, CMs will be requested to respond within one week, as timeliness of publication is important.
Term of Service
The Content Manager’s term shall be two years, renewable for two additional two year terms.
 The “on the average” is across all journals and conference proceedings. Some journal issues may have no articles that are suitable for IEEE Sensors Alert, and some may have more than one. Similarly, some conference proceedings may contain few, and others may contain many articles that are suitable.
 The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is given with each article title in IEEE Xplore. An example of a DOI is 10.1109/JSEN.2019.2935035.
