In November 2011, the IEEE Technical Activities Board approved the scope and title change of the three SMC Transactions. The SMC Transactions will be more clearly focused by renaming them as follows: (1) IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics - Part A: Systems and Humans will become IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics: Systems and will only focus on systems science and engineering, including issue formulation, analysis and modeling, decision making. (2) IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics -Part B: Cybernetics will become IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, clearly indicating the nature of the journal. There will be no change to the topical areas covered by this title. (3) IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics - Part C: Applications & Reviews will become IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems. This new publication will cover human systems and human organizational interactions including cognitive ergonomics, system test and evaluation, and human information processing concerns in systems and organizations. The application and review papers for the Transactions are no longer separated into their own journal. Instead, those papers will be accepted and included in the appropriate title along with the theoretical papers. The change will be effective January 2013.
