Benefits of publishing

why publish here

IEEE Access is a multidisciplinary, open access journal that gives you the flexibility to submit articles that do not fit neatly within traditional journals.  It is ideal for authors who want to quickly announce recent developments, methods, or new products to a broad audience.  Some additional benefits of publishing in IEEE Access are:

  • A rapid, binary peer-review process with a decision of accept/reject in approximately 4 weeks
  • Multimedia integration and commenting
  • Usage and citation data
  • Advantage of being published by an IEEE journal
  • Vast global outreach to millions of users through the IEEE Xplore digital library
  • Convenient author-pays publishing model, with an article processing charge of US$1,750 per article

topics covered

IEEE Access publishes articles that are of high interest to readers—original, technically correct, and clearly presented. The scope of this all-electronic, archival publication comprises all IEEE fields of interest, emphasizing applications-oriented and interdisciplinary articles.

IEEE Access makes it easy for practitioners, researchers, institutions, funding agencies, and others to make published information available to everyone via one of the most prestigious technical publishers in the world. IEEE open access publishing facilitates dissemination to those who seek direct access to an author’s research results.

Author testimonial videos

video Watch the Vienna University of Technology’s Dr. Stefan Schwarz and Dr. Josep Colom Ikuno discuss the development of their open-source, standards-compliant simulator of LTE mobile networks – making it possible to test new telecommunication technologies using their novel model. Their article, “Pushing the Limits of LTE: A Survey on Research Enhancing the Standard” is now freely available to scientists and engineers around the world via IEEE Access.
  NYU professor Ted Rappaport, an IEEE Access author of "Millimeter Wave Mobile Communications for 5G Cellular: It Will Work!", talks about the future of 5G wireless traffic.  Ted Rappaport discusses the potential of his research into millimeter wave wireless communications technology, and the benefits of sharing that work with researchers around the world through open access, fast-turn publishing in a gold-standard IEEE journal: IEEE Access. 
  IEEE author Kaleb McDowell shares key insights from his new article, "Real-World Neuroimaging Technologies," and discusses the benefits of connecting his work with researchers around the world through open access, fast-turn publishing.
