A Celebration of the 70th Anniversary of TIM

TIM turns to Volume 70 in 2021, indicating its 70th anniversary. It was in 1952 that the Transactions of the IRE Professional Group on Instrumentation was launched, which in 1955 was renamed to IRE Transactions on Instrumentation. Papers of both can still be accessed in IEEE Xplore. IRE was the Institute of Radio Engineers, which in 1963 merged with the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) to form the present-day IEEE. Subsequently, in 1963 the name of the transactions was changed to the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement. Figure 1 below shows all TIM EiCs1 and the more recent Administrators. You can see the bios of the EiCs at the bottom of TIM’s Editorial Board webpage2. There is no EiC listed until Volume I-6, Issue 3, 1957, although historical records indicate that George B. Hoadley was EiC since 19533 or 19544. It should also be mentioned that in 1996, Raymond S. Turgel became TIM’s EiC, but he could not serve in this role due to an unexpected severe health issue, and so Steve Dyer took over the EiC duties again.

 

  

Figure 1. TIM's EiCs over the years and recent Administrators.

Like other journals, TIM has gone through many transitions due to technology advancements and authors’ expectations. Stephen A. Dyer, TIM’s EiC from 1992 to 1999, shares some interesting insights on the challenges of the editorial process in the 1990s:

“Technological capabilities were certainly different in the early 1990s from what is available today. A typical computer would be a `486/33MHz CPU with about 120 MB of hard disk and running MS-DOS 5 or 6 (Windows 95 was yet to be); e-mail was available but primitive; the World Wide Web would wait until the mid 1990s; choices for relational database systems were few and very expensive; and the list goes on. TIM’s official correspondence and the manuscripts and their various revisions were transferred by postal mail, entirely manually. I spent much of the first several months writing relational-database code in C, and using the Codebase 4.5 library of functions, so that we could automate many of the aspects of manuscript tracking. At the time, the page limit for a paper was set to five for regular papers and four for special-issue papers. We carefully measured every manuscript upon receipt to get a close estimate of its length after typesetting—I had constructed a set of templates to facilitate that operation—and we notified the author(s) of the estimated length. 

The various steps in the manuscript-handling process were quite time-consuming, even after partial automation. Ed Richter had told me that he spent about 30 hours per week at the editorial task, and I was incredulous at that statement. But indeed, I found, early on, that the job required anywhere between 30 and 50 hours per week. At that point, I understood why editors had tended to be retired from their careers; as for me, I had a day job to contend with!

Editorial assistants are absolutely critical participants in the editorial process. Ms. Camellia Ingelin was the first assistant I hired. Described aptly by one colleague as ‘the nicest person in the whole world,’ Cammie also proved to be perhaps the most meticulous. And her degrees in English, mathematics and library science provided her with good background. Our process included Cam’s editing each accepted manuscript for grammar before we forwarded it to IEEE Publications for copyediting, composition, printing and mailing. On several occasions, she wound up correcting mathematical errors in the manuscripts’ equations! And she would always do a final, quick proofreading of the galley proofs returned by authors. Many international authors struggled with their English to the extent that Cammie and I would completely rewrite a technically sound manuscript and then start a conversation cycle with its author to ensure that our version said what the author had intended; for this type of task, Cammie assumed the brunt of the load. She did all the above in addition to completing the tasks of measuring for length, generating correspondence, completing assembly of issues for publication, and mailing, among others.

Cammie first worked part-time, and I had another part-time assistant—first Ms. Amy Schlotthauer, and later, Ms. Alison Mott (now Denny). Both Amy and Al had technical backgrounds, and, as with Cam, they were sharp, well organized, caring, and easy to work with. I bring honor to these three individuals: what they accomplished and their manner of accomplishment were beyond reproach. They worked with me to achieve, to the extent possible, the goals I had set for TIM.

But to move further toward those goals, we had to alter the structure of our editorial operation. As it stood, the operation comprised the editor and his assistants, three geographically oriented AEs, and a centralized cadre of reviewers.  Ulrich Stumper was the AE available for submissions from Europe; Reuven Kitai for Canada; and Makoto Kanno, and later, Kenzo Watanabe for Asia. But it turned out that most of the manuscripts from those three geographical regions were being submitted directly to the editor instead of those AEs. We had between 600 and 1000 manuscripts active at a given time, and as editor, I was assigning reviewers and corresponding with the authors and reviewers of roughly 90 percent of those manuscripts. As a result, in 1995, I began installing a new structure to become active in 1996, one familiar to us today—a distributed structure comprising an editor (now termed editor-in-chief, or EiC); a group of AEs (initially, to be 24), each overseeing a particular topic area; and reviewers chosen by, and reporting directly to, individual AEs.”

Some of the challenges Steve has mentioned are unimaginable today. I can’t even begin to think how much work would be involved if, with TIM’s 2500 annual submissions now, we had to manually edit the English and the mathematical formulas or “mail” papers for the review process! Yet despite overcoming those challenges with technology, each new EiC realizes there are other challenges, as writes senior past EiC Reza Zoughi:

“In 2006, when then-EiC Milton Slade asked me to accept the position of EiC starting 2007, I was incredibly honored. However, it soon became evident that we needed an overhaul of all processes associated with TIM. Milton, who has since passed away, was a great mentor and teacher to me, and I am forever indebted to him. I also received lots of guidance by others; in particular Steve Dyer, senior past TIM EiC at the time. The only real TIM “memory” that existed at that time was in the form of Cam Ingelin! Without Cam, TIM would not have survived. We faced many challenges: a large backlog of accepted papers; a large number of papers that were still in various stages of review and had been for many months, and some for many years; no automated submission-and-review system, other than a database program written in 1998 by Justin Dyer – authors simply emailed their paper to the EiC, who would email it to an AE, who in turn would email it to reviewers, etc.; no process for special issues, which caused many problems and became a major time sink; and no systematic process for AEs to handle papers - the list goes on.

TIM needed a culture change as well, which was not easy to achieve given the many people involved in the process. There were many (but not all) AEs who were receptive to change, and I invited many more to join the TIM family and help expedite our review processes and ensure that we had technically-competent AEs for all areas covered by TIM. At that time, TIM was published only six times per year, and that was immediately changed to twelve issues per year to reduce the large backlog quickly. Concurrently, after a six month research period, we chose the  Allentrack submission system and never looked back. Our objective from the outset was to have a transparent, effective, informative-for-authors, and timely review process, all of which were based on the principle of publishing the highest-quality papers in the Transactions. Later, when I became the IMS President, I wrote a message in the I&M Magazine entitled “It is all about quality”. “Quality” governed how we conducted ALL of our affairs related to TIM, and that legacy continues today. The persistent notion that “once you achieve Quality all other metrics will follow,” has certainly proven to be true.”

Figure 4. TIM’s Impact Factor over the years.

I couldn’t agree more with Reza and his focus on “Quality”. In Figure 4, we can see that TIM’s performance was essentially random until Reza took the helm, and from that point on we witness significant and continuous improvement. To highlight the quality of work, Reza also established the TIM Outstanding Associate Editors5 and the TIM Outstanding Reviewers6 recognitions. This strategy of focusing on quality was continued by the next EiC, Alessandro Ferrero, who writes:

“I tried to follow two main paths: quality and focus. Quality of the review process, that shall guarantee a fair and fast evaluation of the submitted papers, always considering that even a rejected paper has the potential to become a good paper and authors must be helped to improve their work. Focus of all published papers on the scope of the journal, so that the I&M community can find, in the journal, a useful forum to present novel ideas and compare them with those proposed by other authors, and the other communities may find good solutions to the I&M problems they have to deal with. It is not up to me to say whether I succeeded and whether TIM’s quality had improved during my term as the EiC.”

Well, Alessandro, according to Figure 4 and all other JCR and Scopus quality metrics, you succeeded very well! In fact, for his strategy of “focus” on TIM’s scope, Alessandro introduced the successful educational topical guides7, which explain I&M concepts to authors of other fields and help those authors properly write a paper from their field for TIM. As usual, Alessandro also has a delightful story to share:

“My first contact with TIM goes back to many years ago (too many!) when scientific research started to attract me. At that time, TIM was considered, in the Italian scenario of the I&M research, as a highly qualified journal in which only the top scientists dared to publish, and all others were supposed to only read and study it. You can easily imagine how the TIM EiC could be seen by the young, full of hope, wannabe scientist I was at that time: a sort of God, sitting in the Olympus, exerting the power of life or death on my papers. The first TIM EiC I ever met was Ed Richter during an IMTC conference. I can’t remember what we talked about, but I clearly remember that I thought I would never be capable of serving as an EiC. I continued to believe that many other AEs were better qualified than me for an EiC job. No wonder that, when Reza asked me years later if I were available to succeed him, I asked back if he were kidding? I have to say that, after five long years of EiC service, that feeling was fully justified. No matter how long you serve as an AE, you have no idea of the time, energy, dedication and also diplomacy needed to run the show and not to destroy the good job done by those before you.”

Well said, Alessandro, and I am very happy that, according to the metrics, I have also been able to successfully continue the good work of the people before me. Speaking of the good work of people before us, it is now my pleasure to present TIM’s Top 70 lists, as a commemoration of TIM authors, reviewers, and AEs, whom we salute and thank for their outstanding contributions over the years. In the next few pages, you can see the Top 70 most-published authors, Top 70 most-published organizations, and Top 70 most-cited articles, all extracted from the Web of Science data at the time of this writing, and in both “of all time” and “in the past 7 years” categories, allowing us to compare historical trends with more recent trends. These lists are followed by two other lists of significant importance to me personally: the Top 70 most-productive reviewers and Top 70 most-productive Associate Editors, both for the past 7 years. I cannot emphasize enough the priceless contributions of reviewers and AEs to TIM’s overall quality, and the tremendous number of hours that these volunteers give so generously from their time, mind, and energy, which reflects clearly in TIM's success. To them, we owe a special Thank You! I am proud to see that many people in the former list are now serving as TIM AE, due to our policy of recruiting AEs from our best reviewers8. I wish I could also present similar lists of reviews and AEs “of all time”, but we do not have any performance data from reviewers or AEs before the Allentrack system.

Congratulations to all in these lists, including the medal winners (see figure 5), and to all other members of the TIM community! Looking forward to a fantastic future for TIM and its community.
