question mark

IEEE Access is an award-winning, multidisciplinary, all-electronic archival journal 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. IEEE Access received the 2015 PROSE Award for Best New Journal in STM (science, technology, and medicine) and one of its articles was awarded the 2015 Donald G. Fink Prized Paper Award.

Benefits of publishing

why publish here

Meets demand for practical information that can bring new products and innovations to market faster, or that doesn't neatly fit into a single topic area.

  • a rapid, binary peer-review process with a decision of accept/reject in approximately 4 weeks;
  • multimedia integration (video abstracts, etc.);
  • each published article is accompanied by usage and citation data;
  • the advantage of being published by IEEE, whose journals are trusted, respected, and rank among the most highly cited;
  • vast global reach to millions who search IEEE Xplore, attend conferences, and conduct research in all technology sectors;
  • all published articles will be maintained in the IEEE archive with free access to all;
  • 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.
