About the journal


Basic Information


The Journal of Microwaves, Optoelectronics and Electromagnetic Applications is a scientific journal published by the Brazilian Microwave and Optoelectronics Society (SBMO) and Brazilian Society of Electromagnetism (SBMag). It is an on-line publication devoted to disseminating technical information in the areas of Microwaves, Optoelectronics, Photonics, and Electromagnetic Applications. The issues are published quaterly. The submitted papers will be reviewed by, at least, two referees (generally, a Brazilian and a foreigner) who are experts in the papers area. After acceptance, articles are available worldwide for previewing and downloading through the Internet, free of charge. If the paper is accepted, the copyright is transferred to JMOe before the paper publication.

The Journal of Microwaves, Optoelectronics and Electromagnetic Applications was created in 1996 by SBMO originally named as Journal of Microwaves and Optoelectronics (JMO). It was one of the first electronic scientific journals in Brazil. The first issue was published in May 1997, and in 2005 the first ISSN number was granted. The journal remained an exclusive SBMO publication up to 2008, when a joint publication with SBMag was established. On this occasion, the title changed to its current version. In 2010, the JMOe ISSN number also changed to its current version.

Its abbreviated title is J. Microw. Optoelectron. Electromagn. Appl., which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.

Instructions to authors


Scope and Policy


Papers submitted to JMOe are numbered by the electronic management system and analyzed by the editors. If they are in a proper format, they come under revision. Then at least two researchers (usually, a Brazilian and a foreigner) who are experts in the area of the paper are chosen. The electronic management system sends a link to them with access to the paper and the review form with a request for review.

Reviewers are asked to inform, in one week, if the review will be performed or not. If not, new referees are chosen and requested to review the paper. At the end of the review process, if the reviews are congruent and the editors agree with them, the authors are informed of the result.

In the case of two different reviews, the paper is submitted to a third reviewer. In case of approval, it may be asked (or not, depending on the situation) a final format revision. After that, the paper is sent to publication.

If the result is re-submission, authors are informed and receive the feedback from the reviewers. Authors have approximately one month to re-submit the revised version of the paper.

The revised paper is sent to the same reviewers, in order for them to check if the suggestions were accomplished and if the paper can now be accepted. When the paper is rejected, the authors are informed and receive the feedback from the reviewers to understand the reasons for this result.

The Editors or the Associate Editors, only, contact the authors and reviewers through the electronic management system. The other members of the Editorial Board help indicating reviewers, advising on ethical matters, assisting in the final decision and, eventually, participating as reviewers.

Every two years, the Brazilian Microwave and Optoelectronics Society and the Brazilian Society of Electromagnetism jointly organize the MOMAG Symposium. The authors of the papers ranked best in this event are invited to submit an extended version of these papers to JMOe. In this case, the review process of these extended versions is conducted by guest editors who follow the journal standards.

The areas of interest of JMOe are: Electromagnetic Field Analysis, Computer Aided Design, Microwave Technologies, Photonic Technologies, Packaging, Integration and Test, Millimeter Wave & Lightwave Technologies, Electromagnetic Applications and other topics such as education, industrial, biological and medical applications; broadband microwave and optical communication systems; wireless and cellular communications, optical networks and services; microwave and optical sensors.

JMOe publishes scientific, original and complete papers. The journal serves the national and international scientific community.

Articles accepted for publication become property of the journal.
