Open Access

Effective 1 January 2022, IEEE’s open access article processing charge (APC) for all hybrid journals will increase from USD $2,050 to $2,195.  This will affect all articles that are accepted on or after 1 January 2022; articles accepted 31 December 2021 or earlier will retain the $2,050 rate.

This publication is a hybrid journal, allowing either Traditional manuscript submission or Open Access (author-pays OA) manuscript submission.

The OA option, if selected, enables unrestricted public access to the article via IEEE Xplore. The OA option will be offered to the author at the time the manuscript is submitted. The traditional option, if selected, enables access to all qualified subscribers and purchasers via IEEE Xplore. No OA payment is required.


For hybrid journals, the OA article processing fee is $2,195 plus other applicable fees (e.g. over-length paper charges and color page charges). 


IEEE will apply a discount to current IEEE members. IEEE Members will receive a 5% discount, and members of IEEE Societies will receive a 20% discount. Discounts cannot be combined or applied to any other fees such as over-length article or color page charges.
