IEEE Sensors Journal Most Downloaded Papers

Each month, the IEEE makes available the list of the 50 most downloaded Sensors Journal papers for the previous month. The latest list is now available. For example, during October 2014 (the latest available as of this writing), the first on the list had received 3,100 downloads, and the second on the list had received 5,800 downloads since publication.

IEEE Internet of Things Journal (IOT-J)

The IEEE Internet of Things Journal (IoT-J) began publication in 2014. All issues of IoT-J are available in IEEE Xplore.

IEEE Xplore contains 4 million documents. The list of the 100 most downloaded of these are published each month. In October 2014, three of the top most downloaded articles were from the IEEE Internet of Things Journal.

The IoT-J solicits original papers, review papers, and proposals for special issues. Topics of interest include IoT system architecture, IoT enabling technologies, IoT services and applications, and the social implications of IoT. Submission of manuscripts are accepted at the Manuscript Central Web site.
