IEEE Launching New Open Access Journals

IEEE is launching 14 new gold fully open access journals spanning a wide range of technologies including telecommunications, computing, biomedical engineering, automotive technology, signal processing, industrial applications, power and energy and more. The new journals will begin accepting submissions in the fall of 2019 and publish their first articles in early 2020.  

Independent editorial boards will drive IEEE’s commitment to publish high-quality articles including cutting-edge studies and breakthroughs in technology innovation.  Each new journal will follow IEEE’s established high standard of peer review, drawing on expert technical communities to continue to publish the most highly cited content in numerous technology fields.  Each journal will have an accomplished expert as editor-in-chief.

Establishing new topical sections in IEEE Access(R)

IEEE Access, IEEE’s broad-scope open access journal, will also soon launch discipline-specific subsections aligned with the following technical communities:  IEEE Broadcast Technology Society, IEEE Electronics Packaging Society, IEEE Photonics Society, IEEE Reliability Society, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, and IEEE Power & Energy Society.

Other new additions

IEEE will also be transitioning the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing to a fully open access title in 2020.

All of the new open access options will be fully compliant with funder mandates including Plan S, as all articles will be published under the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC-BY) enabling authors to retain copyright.  


  • I need to updated with the newly launched journals ( in remote sensing, optical sensing and photonics)

  • What is the problem in making the present journals, published by IEEE and IEEE Societies as ‘Open’. May be I am not up to date on this issue.
