About the book

The main objective of the book is to present radio frequency antennas for communication, 5G, IOT ‎and medical systems. ‎The book will discuss several types of radio frequency antennas for wireless communication, 5G, IOT, sport and medical applications. Small printed antennas, metamaterial antennas and fractal antennas will be also included as important topics. The main goal of wearable Wireless Body Area Networks, WBANs is to provide the physician with continuous ‎medical data which is also an important area to be covered by the book's content.

Each chapter in the book will provide sufficient details to enable students, scientists from all areas, ‎electrical and biomedical engineers to follow and further investigate the topics presented in the book. Given that the book will present new design in the area of RF systems and antennas, metamaterial antennas, fractal antennas and active receiving and ‎transmitting antennas, it will hopefully serve ‎students and design engineers as a reference book.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

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.
