About the book

Electromagnetic waveguides are key components in communications and sensor technologies. A waveguide is any structure that causes waves to follow a certain path instead of spreading out into a larger and larger volume of space. They play a crucial role in the current electronic industrial, medical and information technology. This book aims to cover the design, modeling and application of electromagnetic waveguides in a broad spectrum ranging from nanometer to millimeter wavelengths. Contributions in waveguide theory, fabrication and applications in communication, lasing and sensing are welcome. This includes waveguide technologies in optics, photonics and microwave engineering. The book addresses needs in academics and industries. Therefore, scientists, practicing researchers and postgraduate students as well as senior researchers whose work relates to the latest waveguide technologies are invited to contribute to this book. Both, practical issues and future trends, can be discussed. Literature reviews and original studies are highly welcome.

This book aims to serve as a practical summary of the latest concepts in waveguide technologies.

Publishing process

Book initiated and editor appointed

Date completed: November 15th 2019

Applications to edit the book are assessed and a suitable editor is selected, at which point the process begins.

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: May 26th 2020

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: August 14th 2020

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: October 13th 2020

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
