    Aims and Scope


    Frequenz is one of the leading scientific and technological journals covering all aspects of RF-, Microwave-, and THz-Engineering. It is a peer-reviewed, bi-monthly published journal.

    Frequenz was first published in 1947 with a circulation of 7000 copies, focusing on telecommunications. Today, the major objective of Frequenz is to highlight current research activities and development efforts in RF-, Microwave-, and THz-Engineering throughout a wide frequency spectrum ranging from radio via microwave up to THz frequencies.

    RF-, Microwave-, and THz-Engineering is a very active area of Research & Development as well as of Applications in a wide variety of fields. It has been the key to enabling technologies responsible for phenomenal growth of satellite broadcasting, wireless communications, satellite and terrestrial mobile communications and navigation, high-speed THz communication systems. It will open up new technologies in communications, radar, remote sensing and imaging, in identification and localization as well as in sensors, e.g. for wireless industrial process and environmental monitoring as well as for biomedical sensing.

    • How to download a paper in Frequenz ? Once a paer is shown as "web published" in "http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/frequenz#refX", how to find this paper in web?

      posted by: KONG HONG on 2012-01-22 10:32 PM (Europe/Berlin)

    • Thank you for your interest! The date "web published" in manuscript central is our internal intended online publication date. It sometimes takes us a little bit longer until the article is actually online. Once it is online, you can find the article on this platform - simply click "Read content" on the Frequenz overview page, go to the article and access it through your institution or buy it via our webshop.

    • I would like to know how long it usually takes between notification of acceptance and sending the proofs to the authors. I have been notified that my paper has been accepted three months ago and I have never received any proofs so far. Thank you!

      posted by: Mahmoud Ismail on 2012-11-07 06:14 PM (Europe/Berlin)

    • Thanks for your request. We always try our best to keep publication times short and publish articles ahead of print few weeks after acceptance. Still, it can happen that editorial processes need more time. The Editorial Office will contact you for further details. Don’t hesitate to contact the editors of Frequenz for any further questions.
