General Submissions

IEEE Cloud Computing magazine seeks accessible, useful papers on the latest peer-reviewed developments in cloud computing. Topics include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Cloud architectures (delivery models and deployments),
  • Cloud management (balancing automation and robustness with monitoring and maintenance),
  • Cloud security and privacy (issues stemming from technology, process and governance, international law, and legal frameworks),
  • Cloud services (cloud services drive and are driven by consumer demand; as markets change, so do the types of services being offered),
  • Cloud experiences and adoption (deployment scenarios and consumer expectations),
  • Cloud and adjacent technology trends (exploring trends in the market and impacts on and influences of cloud computing),
  • Cloud economics (direct and indirect costs of cloud computing on the consumer; sustainable models for providers),
  • Cloud standardization and compliance (facilitating the standardization of cloud tech and test suites for compliance), and
  • Cloud governance (transparency of processes, legal frameworks, and consumer monitoring and reporting).

Submissions will be subject to IEEE Cloud Computing magazine’s peer-review process. Articles should be at most 6,000 words, with a maximum of 15 references, and should be understandable to a broad audience of people interested in cloud computing, big data, and related application areas. The writing style should be down to earth, practical, and original.

All accepted articles will be edited according to the IEEE Computer Society style guide. Submit your papers through Manuscript Central at
