IEEE Transactions on Antennas & Propagation continues to represent
a premier venue for papers on a broad range of topics relevant to
antenna theory and design, wave propagation, and electromagnetics.
It has an impressive history of publishing manuscripts that contribute
to the modern state-of-the-art and that remain relevant for many
years. As evidence of these observations, consider that the journal
enjoys an Impact Factor of 2.479 (2008) and that in 2009 it was
ranked second out of over 13,000 publications on IEEE Xplore, based
on the total number of papers downloaded. Furthermore, it is remarkable
that many papers continue to be cited more than ten years after
impressive statistics are naturally a direct consequence of authors
who demonstrate creativity and innovation in their scholarly pursuits
and who are able to show how their ideas relate to engineering practice.
They further depend on the significant voluntary efforts of reviewers
and the editorial staff who work together to achieve a rigorous
peer review process. If you are an author, I encourage you to contribute
to the success of the Transactions by submitting papers on topics
relevant to the stated journal scope. If
you would like to participate in the peer review activities, I encourage
you to apply to serve as a reviewer.
honored to serve the IEEE Antennas & Propagation Society as
Editor-in-Chief, and I am grateful for the tireless work of an international
panel of Associate Editors, all
of whom are experienced authors and reviewers, as well as our Editorial
Assistant Ms. Sara K.S. Hanks. On behalf of this Editorial Board,
I thank you for your contributions to the Transactions, and I hope
that you will continue to provide high-quality submissions and excellent
service. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance.
I look forward to our collaboration.
Jensen received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering
from Brigham Young University (BYU) in 1990 and 1991, respectively,
and the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at the University of California,
Los Angeles in 1994. Since 1994, he has been at the Electrical and
Computer Engineering Department at BYU, where he is currently Professor
and Department Chair. He has published over 200 articles on the
topic of antennas, propagation, and signal processing for wireless
communication, with emphasis on multi-antenna communication systems,
and has delivered dozens of invited and keynote addresses. He has
been recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at the IEEE Antennas
and Propagation Society Symposium in 1993, the H. A. Wheeler Applications
Prize Paper Award in the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation
in 2002, and several outstanding faculty awards at Brigham Young
University. He was elevated to the grade of IEEE Fellow in 2008
for his contributions to multi-antenna communications.
Jensen has served as the Technical Program Chair or General Co-Chair
for seven different symposia, as a member and chair of the IEEE
Antennas and Propagation Society Joint Meetings Committee, and as
an elected member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society AdCom.
He has been an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on
Antennas and Propagation and the IEEE Antennas and Wireless
Propagation Letters. He has served as the Editor-in-Chief of
the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation since
August 1, 2010.
