IEEE Transactions Magazine

The IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques is published monthly with a focus on that part of engineering and theory associated with microwave/millimeter-wave technology and components, electronic devices, guided wave structures and theory, electromagnetic theory, and Radio Frequency Hybrid and Monolithic Integrated Circuits, including mixed-signal circuits, from a few MHz to THz.

The IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques  is the preeminent publication concerning RF and microwave technology, with an Impact Factor of 2.243 and an acceptance rate of 35%. The average time between submission and online publication (on IEEE Xplore) is 20 weeks. 

Electronic Access is Available to digital subscribers through IEEE Xplore.

Before submitting manuscripts, authors should check Information for Authors and follow the instructions to prepare submissions.

The Microwave Prize

The Microwave Prize is the oldest award granted by the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, dating back to 1955. The Microwave Prize recognizes the author(s) of the paper, published in any official IEEE publication during the calendar year but historically selected from the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, that is judged to be the most significant contribution in the field of interest of the MTT Society. All past Microwave Prize papers can be viewed here.
