Call for Articles
The USENIX Journal of Election Technology and Systems (JETS) is a hybrid journal/conference, in which papers will have a journal-style reviewing process and online-only publication. Authors of accepted papers for Volume 3, Number 1, will present their work at EVT/WOTE '15, which will be co-located with the 24th USENIX Security Symposium in Washington, D.C., in August 2015.
The USENIX Association established JETS to improve the quality of reviewing and to shorten the turnaround time relative to the normal journal process while also keeping the community feel of the computer science conference process alive. Although it looks like a major step to us, it is in line with what is done in other disciplines and makes it easier for academics in all disciplines to submit real work, since "journals" get them credit in a way that "conferences" and "workshops" don't. We will have to do some fine tuning, but we hope that in the long term everyone will be happier about our reviewing process.
