Journal Aims

The International Journal on Communications Antenna and Propagation (IRECAP) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original theoretical and applied papers on all aspects of Communications, Antenna, Propagation and networking technologies.

The topics to be covered include but are not limited to:

Communications and Information theory, multimedia signal processing, communication QoS and performance modelling, cross-layer design and optimization, communication software and services, protocol and algorithms for communications, communication network security, cognitive radio communications and networking, hardware architecture for communications and networking, emerging communication technology and standards, communications layers, internet protocols, internet telephony and VoIP, fading channel, mobile systems, services and applications, indoor communications and WLAN; superhighways, interworking and broadband VPN, spread spectrum communication.

Wireless communications and networking, coding for wireless systems, multiuser and multiple access schemes, mobile and portable communications systems, real-time transmission over wireless channels, optical wireless communications, resource allocation over wireless networks, security, authentication, and cryptography for wireless networks, signal processing techniques and tools, wireless traffic and routing, ultra wide-band systems, wireless sensor networks, wireless system architectures and applications, wireless ad-hoc and sensor networking, cooperative communications and networking, bio-inspired wireless communications systems, broadband wireless access, broadband networking and protocols, internet services, systems and applications, P2P communications and networking, satellite and space communications, vehicular networks, emerging wireless communication technology and standards.

Antenna analysis and design, antenna measurement control and testing, smart reconfigurable and adaptive antennas and multiple antenna systems for spatial, polarization, pattern and other diversity applications, novel materials for enhanced performance.

Propagation, interaction of electromagnetic waves with discrete and continuous media, radio astronomy and propagation and radiation aspects of terrestrial and spacebased communications, theoretical and computational methods of predicting propagation and sensing, propagation and sensing measurements in all media, interaction of electromagnetic waves with biological tissue, characterization of propagation media and applications of propagation, multipath interference, channel modeling and propagation.

The journal publishes invited tutorials or critical reviews; original scientific research papers (regular papers), letters to the Editor and research notes which should also be original presenting proposals for a new research, reporting on research in progress or discussing the latest scientific results in advanced fields; short communications and discussions, book reviews, reports from meetings and special issues describing research on all aspects of Communications, Antenna, Propagation and networking technologies.

IRECAP also publishes letters to the Editor and research notes which discuss new research, or research in progress in any of the above thematic areas.

The International Journal on Communications Antenna and Propagation (IRECAP) currently has an acceptance rate of 34%. The average time between submission and final decision is 37 days and the average time between acceptance and publication is 20 days.



published bimonthly, appearing on the last day of February, April, June, August, October, December.
