Starting on the 9th of February 2015, we require all authors to identify themselves, when a submission is made, by entering their SCOPUS Author IDs, instead of the organizations, when available. This information will let us better know the publishing history of the authors and better assign the reviewers on different topics.

We have more than 500 author names on the ban-list for cheating, including plagiarism, false signatures on the copyright form, false E-mail addresses and even tentative to impersonate well-known researchers in order to become a reviewer of our Journal. We maintain a full history of such incidents.

Spectrum handoff procedures occur when the primary users appear in the licensed band temporary occupied by the cognitive radio (CR) users and aim to help the CR users to vacate the spectrum rapidly and find available channel to resume the transmission. However, a spectrum handoff scheme that comprehensively considers channel selection, handoff decision as well as space domain handoff is yet undeveloped. In this paper we present a complete optimal spectrum handoff scheme for cognitive radio mobile ad hoc networks. First, we design a spectrum selection mechanism to allow CR users optimally choose the appropriate channel. The spectrum idleness prediction algorithm is utilized based on developing a cooperative spectrum searching approach. Through combining the estimated transmission time, the PU appearance probability and the mean spectrum availability time are integrated to develop the optimal spectrum handoff scheme. Moreover, as one part of the proposed scheme, a geo-location approach is utilized to deal with the space domain handoff. The complete scheme is evaluated through a comprehensive simulation study, and results reveal significant improvements in handoff times and transmission efficiency over conventional approaches.
