Ipek Ozkaya Named IEEE Software Editor-in-Chief
July 11, 2018 • Article
The IEEE Computer Society has named Ipek Ozkaya, a principal researcher in the SEI’s Software Solutions Division, the next Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Software, a leading bimonthly peer-reviewed journal published by the IEEE Computer Society.
Ozkaya will assume editorial duties in January 2019. Her term will run through December 2021. As editor-in-chief, Ozkaya plans to focus on publishing results that provide practical guidance and help for both established and newcomer software developers and architects.
Ozkaya notes that experienced practitioners face the challenge of staying relevant in a dynamic environment where knowledge-consumption models continually evolve from centralized and controlled to open and collaborative. Also, in government and elsewhere, newcomers to the workforce often lack the skills to make effective use of the complex software-based systems with which they must interact. For all practitioners, Ozkaya plans to work toward the transition of practical research through easily consumable means.
Ozkaya noted that she welcomes the opportunity to work closely with others in the diverse, global, technology-savvy IEEE Software community.
