Society/Council Sections

What is a Society/Council Section?

IEEE Access Society/Council (S/C) Sections are collections of articles that focus on an IEEE S/C’s fields of interest. Authors may submit their article to a S/C Section and have their article processed by a Topical Editor from that IEEE S/C. These sections follow the IEEE Access Special Section manuscript workflow. S/C Sections are a permanent feature of IEEE Access and will be open for submissions continuously.


Who can submit to a Society/Council Section in IEEE Access?

Any researcher who is specialized in the Society/Council field can submit an article to the S/C Section in IEEE Access. During article submission on ScholarOne Manuscripts, authors should select the S/C Section from the pull-down menu of “Manuscript type” in the first page of the submission process.
