Mariesa Crow, VP of Publications

May-GovBd-MariesaYou have probably already noticed that this month’s eNewsletter has a different look. To greet the new year, we have rolled out a new look and feel to better serve our members. In the coming months, look for short articles on a variety of aspects of our PES life. We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Please send comments to Mariesa Crow (crow@ieee.org).

Other changes include updates to the Power & Energy magazine. The Power & Energy Society just issued its first translation of the Power & Energy magazine. A big thanks goes out to our team on the ground who are serving as the Spanish editorial board: Enrique Tejera (chair), Gustavo Valverde, and Guadalupe Gonzalez. In the future, we plan to expand our Spanish version to include articles of a regional interest to better serve our Region 9 members.

Our newest journal, the open access IEEE Power & Energy Technology Systems Journal (PETS) is off to a solid start and we expect this journal to receive the same high recognition as our other journals. This journal focuses on the technology aspects of power systems with a heavy emphasis on industry practices.  The PETS journal is a technical journal containing practice-oriented articles focusing on the development, planning, design, construction, maintenance, installation and operation of equipment, structures, materials and power systems. This journal is an excellent publication forum for our many industry authors. Open access articles are provided with unrestricted online access through IEEE Xplore.  Please consider submitting a paper to this journal.  Questions may be forward to the editor-in-chief Scott Sudhoff (sudhoff@ecn.purdue.edu).

Our five transactions continue to have a strong showing in their impact factors. Our editorial boards are doing excellent work in reviewing papers in a timely manner.  Please register in manuscript central if you would like to be considered as a reviewer for a particular journal.  We always need willing volunteers!
