Aims & Scope

IEEE Access® is an interdisciplinary, applications-oriented, all-electronic archival publication continuously presenting the results of original research or development across all of IEEE's fields of interest. Supported by author publication fees, its hallmarks are a rapid peer review and publication process with open access to all readers. Articles are reviewed for technical substance and presentation quality. But, unlike IEEE's traditional Transactions or Journals, reviewers are asked to assess the technical correctness of a paper and its potential interest to readers. Readers will evaluate the work through their comments and usage metrics, updated frequently, will be displayed with the abstract of each paper published. Especially encouraged are submissions on:

  • Interdisciplinary topics, or applications-oriented articles that don't naturally fit into one of IEEE's existing primary Transactions or Journals;
  • Practical discussions of new experimental or measurement techniques, including negative results;
  • Applications articles describing interesting solutions to engineering or information system design challenges;
  • Development of new or improved fabrication or manufacturing techniques;
  • Reviews of new or evolving fields oriented to assist others in understanding the new area.

To be accepted for publication in IEEE Access, articles must satisfy the following criteria:

  1. The article presents the results of original engineering research, development, or design work.
  2. Results reported have not been submitted or published elsewhere (although expanded versions of conference publications are eligible for submission).
  3. Experiments, statistics, and other analyses are performed to a high technical standard and are described in sufficient detail.
  4. Conclusions are presented in an appropriate fashion and are supported by the data.
  5. The article is presented in an intelligible fashion and is written in standard English.
  6. Appropriate references to related prior published works must be included.

IEEE Access editors, and any invited external peer reviewers, will evaluate submissions against these criteria.
