IEEE Transactions on Magnetics Coverage Expanded to Include All Aspects of Magnetic Information Storage

The Transactions is widely regarded as the premier journal for magnetic data storage. Regular Transactions issues include articles on heads, media, giant magnetoresistance, spintronics, servos, systems, channels, and codes.

Now, the Transactions announces that coverage of regular papers is being expanded to include all relevant topics in magnetic disk and tape storage, including tribology, head-disk dynamics, and disk- and tape-drive components. These topics already appear in many conference-related papers published in the Transactions.

The Transactions continues to publish articles in other areas of magnetics, including basic physics of magnetism, magnetic materials, applied magnetics, magnetic devices, and computational magnetics.

Authors may submit articles electronically for consideration for publication in the Transactions at

Members of the Magnetics Society get free on-line access to the TRANSACTIONS (via IEEE Xplore) and an annual CD-ROM. At membership renewal, members may also subscribe to the print edition for an extra fee.

Members who have difficulty accessing the TRANSACTIONS may go to
