More on this journal...

The objective of IJSCPM is to establish an effective channel of communication between academics, policy makers, government agencies, research institutions and persons concerned with satellite communications policy and management. IJSCPM aims to provide a high-quality platform for this purpose.


IJSCPM provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers, graduate students, engineers, managers and policy makers working in the fields of telecommunications, computer science, information technology, electrical engineering, electronics engineering, mathematics, social sciences, engineering and business to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


IJSCPM publishes research contributions that significantly advance state-of-the-art research in this area. Papers reporting the practical applications of different theoretical approaches, policy and management will be of particular interest to the journal. Good quality survey articles will also be of interest to the journal. Special Issues devoted to important topics will occasionally be published.
