Journal History

The Telematics journal has its antecedents in the Network Bulletin that, during three years, from 1999 to 2002, distributed, with constancy and dedication, the Group of Networks of the CUJAE (Havana University of  Technology "José Antonio Echeverría"), covering the increasing need and demand of information in the field of the data networks that, by then, began to be massified in the country.

Telematics arises from the need for a Cuban publication, in electronic format, which would allow the dissemination of scientific and technical information in the field of Telecommunications and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and keep professionals who need to follow closely the dynamic development of this branch of knowledge.

On May 17, 2002, in homage to the "World Telecommunications Day" dedicated that year to the theme "ICTs for all: enabling people to overcome the digital divide", the magazine Telemática appeared for the first time. It was born as an extension project of the university that intended to become a source of periodic information. Until 2011, the Telematica magazine, although it had a website, was mainly distributed by mail, so that in each issue only one article was sent, initially with a weekly frequency and then fortnightly. This was done so that interested people who did not have Web access could receive the magazine. Each issue had, in addition to the article already mentioned, current news, a space to expand the technical vocabulary and promotions to products, services and events in the area of ICT.

Telemática is registered in the Rregistro Nacional de Publicaciones Seriadas in May 2011, June 2003, with RNPS 2029 and as an electronic publication, besides r. Later, in June 2011 it receives the Inscripción Internacional de Publicación Seriada with ISSN 1729-3804.

In 2012 the journal Telemática released a new format, using as a computer tool Open Journal System (OJS), maintaining its goal of disseminating scientific - technical knowledge in a field in constant evolution as the Telecommunications and Information Technology and Telecommunications Communications (ICT). This allowed Telematics to promote the dissemination of knowledge and experiences using a system of scientific publications in which national and foreign specialists collaborate.

Throughout these years, the members of the Editorial Committee of Telemática have made an effort and have been concerned with publishing original articles of great interest and high level, guaranteed by the consensus of its Committee of Arbitrators. In this way, Telematica journal has become an important publication in our country for specialized topics in Telecommunications/ICT.
