Benefits of Publishing with IEEE

Authors will find that publishing with IEEE ensures professional development and exposure of their work because of the following reasons.

IEEE Reputation

IEEE has over 400,000 professional and student members who will shape technology for years to come. You will become part of IEEE’s stellar reputation and 125-year history of innovation.

Referencing and searching

As a member of CrossRef, IEEE Xplore articles include outbound reference links to other publisher content registered in the CrossRef system. IEEE Xplore is indexed by Google™, allowing Google search results to include links to IEEE Xplore.

Trusted content

Consistent quality and high demand make IEEE publications trusted sources for researchers in corporations, academia, and government.

IEEE journals and conference proceedings receive nearly three times the patent citations of competing publishers, which gives IEEE authors a distinct mark of credibility within their field of interest.

Opportunities to publish

IEEE’s comprehensive selection of approximately 200 journals, transactions, magazines, and more than 1,900 conferences around the world allow authors to publish in the best forum for their work.

Optimized visibility

Researchers rely on IEEE for trusted information. IEEE maintains active partnerships with abstracting and indexing providers such as Elsevier, Clarivate, ProQuest, IET, and NLM to maximize the discovery of author works.

Peer review

The peer-review process is designed to ensure the high quality of every article submitted to and published by IEEE and is required before acceptance for publication or presentation.
The author benefits from peer review feedback, while the reader or conference attendee is assured strong and credible research.
