IEEE Author Portal Saves IEEE Access Authors Time and Effort

Submitting your article to IEEE Access is now easier than ever. In a few short steps and without having to copy and paste or retype entire sections of your manuscript, what used to take a few hours can now be accomplished in as little as 15-20 minutes for most users. Sign in to the IEEE Author Portal using your IEEE Account. Upload your article, review what’s been captured to confirm the details, and submit it to IEEE Access for peer review. 

Creating an IEEE Account is easy if you happen to need one. Your IEEE Account will also be used for all production-related processes, creating a more streamlined author experience from the point of peer review all the way through to the publication of your article in IEEE Xplore. Author login credentials on any other type of peer review system (ScholarOne, PaperPlaza, PaperCept, etc.) will not grant you access to the IEEE Author Portal; please use your IEEE Account.

Editors’ Top Article Selections of 2021

Editors’ Top Selections – IEEE Access Articles Published in 2021

Enabling Large Intelligent Surfaces With Compressive Sensing and Deep Learning

Abdelrahman Taha, Muhammad Alrabeiah, Ahmed Alkhateeb

This paper presents a novel architecture for large intelligent surfaces by leveraging compressive sensing and deep learning tools. The architecture keeps the majority of its reflection matrix elements passive while nearly eliminating the training overhead required for the passive elements.

Collision Avoidance in Pedestrian-Rich Environments With Deep Reinforcement Learning

Michael Everett, Yu Fan Chen, Jonathan P. How

In an effort to make the navigation of robots collision-free, a deep reinforcement model is effectively employed, which handles a potentially large and time-varying number of nearby, decision-making agents with a single learned policy.

IEEE Magnetics Society Co-Sponsoring the 2022 Joint MMM-Intermag Conference

The IEEE Magnetics Society, which has a permanent section within IEEE Access, will be co-sponsoring the Joint MMM-Intermag Conference in New Orleans, LA, from January 10-14, 2022 with AIP Publishing LLC.  

The 15th Joint MMM-INTERMAG Conference (2022 Joint) is an opportunity for members of the international scientific and engineering communities interested in recent developments in fundamental and applied magnetism to attend and contribute to the technical sessions. The conference will offer both in-person and prerecorded on-demand content.

The technical program will include invited and contributed papers in oral and poster sessions, invited symposia, a plenary session, and an evening session, with about 1500 presentations overall. Listed below are just a few of the Special Events and Sessions occurring during the conference: 

– Tutorial: Quantum  Magnonics
– Special Session: Current Trends in Magnetism,
– Women in Magnetism Event
– Plenary and IEEE Awards Ceremony
– Writing Workshop


To learn more about attending or participating in this conference, please visit the conference website.

IEEE Access now offers Paperpal Preflight

IEEE Access now offers Paperpal Preflight as a preparatory tool. Running your manuscript through Paperpal Preflight prior to submission to IEEE Access allows you to receive instant feedback on common errors and omissions in language and technical aspects of your manuscript, to help you improve your manuscript prior to submission. Check your manuscript on Paperpal Preflight by clicking here.

IEEE Access Hosts Permanent Society/Council Sections

Did you know that IEEE Access hosts multiple, permanent Society/Council Sections? These sections are collections of articles that focus on an IEEE Society/Council’s fields of interest, grouped together on IEEE Xplore. Articles submitted to these sections are managed by topically focused Editors from that Society/Council, and undergo high-quality, rigorous peer review in only 4 to 6 weeks.

Publishing open access gives your research maximum visibility, and with the expedited peer review process of IEEE Access, you can share your research with the world faster. View all of the Society/Council Sections that IEEE Access hosts by clicking here.
