International Editorial Office Contact Information

This News Forum is edited by three Co-editors, responsible for the three major areas of applied superconductivity: Electronics, Large Scale (applications) and Materials.  Effective immediately, the editorial responsibility for these areas is as follows:

Electronics (Category 4):    Alex I. Braginski
Materials (Categories 2, 3, 5)  Herbert C. Freyhardt
Large Scale (Category 6) Kenichi Sato
 
The remaining Categories are the joint responsibility of these three co-Editors.  Currently, Alex I. Braginski (AIB) is also the Acting Editor-in-Chief. 

The co-Editors are advised by members of the Editorial Board, who also consider appeals of authors whose regular contributions the Co-editors rejected.  An ad hoc panel of reviewers may be occasionally assembled to evaluate conference papers submitted in large numbers for pre-publication in the Forum.  Their verdicts cannot be appealed.

Material submitted in all categories and sections of the News Forum should be directed to superconductivityforum@ieee.org
