The following describes IEEE publishing policy regarding authors in embargoed countries.

 

IEEE Policy for Handling of Manuscripts from Authors in Embargoed Countries

 

Here is IEEE’s policy for handling of manuscripts from authors in embargoed countries. This policy is based on the ruling IEEE received from the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) in December 2004.

The following activities may be done:

  • authors residing in Iran, Cuba and Sudan may submit their manuscripts to the IEEE;
  • IEEE may send manuscripts written by authors residing in Iran, Cuba and Sudan to our member volunteers for peer review and comments or questions (no matter where they are located);
  • IEEE editors may collect the peer reviewer comments and communicate those comments or questions on those manuscripts to authors residing in Iran, Cuba and Sudan;
  • IEEE reviewers and IEEE editors (both volunteer and staff) may edit or otherwise revise manuscripts written by authors residing in Iran, Cuba and Sudan.
IEEE is free to publish such papers, once they pass peer-review.
