The scope of content published within the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Magazine
matches the technology areas within the Society's Field of Interest (FoI):

Article subjects include the integration of the theories of communication, control, cybernetics,
optimization, systems engineering technology development, including problem definition
methods, modeling, and simulation, methods of system experimentation, human factors
engineering, as well as their application to the variety of systems including human-machine,
biological, technological, ecological, socio-economic, and societal systems, data and methods,
systems design techniques and test and evaluation methods, and system structure towards the
formulation of a general theory of systems

The Magazine is also intended to communicate to readers about the activities and actions of the
SMC Society's governing body, its Technical Committees, and its Chapters. Furthermore, the
Magazine will offer educational material such as technical review papers, publish contributions on
educational activities, industrial and university profiles, conference news, book reviews, a
calendar of important events.

Submission Instructions

Authors are encouraged to communicate their intent to submit manuscripts by email as an
attachment to the Editor-in-Chief for further details. Submitted articles should be tutorial in nature
and should be written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the specialty of the article.
Articles may be edited for content, and will be copy edited for compliance with the magazine's
style guidelines. Submissions should indicate the name and contact information (address,
phone, fax, email) of the corresponding author.
