Benefits of Publishing

Quickly announce recent developments to a broad audience

  • Become a published author in 4 to 6 weeks (typical).
  • Reach millions of global users through the IEEE Xplore® digital library with free access to all.

Note: Authors using government research funding or university consortium funding that may be required to publish in open access (OA) journals may publish with IEEE Access as we offer CC-BY copyright agreements.


Submit multidisciplinary articles

IEEE Access accepts multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary articles covering all IEEE fields of interest. The journal is ideal for articles that do not fit neatly in traditional journals while having the prestige of being published by the IEEE.


Benefit from applied engineering innovations

IEEE Access authors work as academic, industry, and government leaders in R&D. These authors may not have published with IEEE in the past, but would like an outlet for their innovative, applied engineering research that other practicing engineers can benefit from.


Satisfy open access (OA) publishing requirements

Authors using government research funding or university consortium funding may be required to publish in OA journals. IEEE Access offers these authors a broad-scoped alternative to the more narrowly focused IEEE fully Open Access topical journals.


Integrate video

IEEE Access encourages submission of video to be published with the article on IEEE Xplore. Video can be a great tool to enhance and promote your article. Videos may be simulations, demonstrations, interviews with experts, or a presentation of the technology.  Video must be sent to peer review with your manuscript for evaluation.. For more information on video integration, please visit our FAQ.

IEEE Access is currently hosting a 2020 Best Multimedia Award (Part 2) where the winner will receive a $500 USD Amazon gift card.
