The IEEE Article Submission Process
After you have written your article and prepared your graphics, you can submit your article for review. Follow these steps to complete the IEEE Article Submission Process.
Select Your Target Journal
An article may be rejected before peer review if it is outside the scope of the journal. Pick the right journal with these tips.
- Get customized recommendations for your article from the IEEE Publication Recommender tool.
- Conduct a keyword search on IEEE Xplore ® Digital Library for a list of publications with similar content.
- Check your reference list for related journals.
- Ask for suggestions from colleagues and co-authors in your field.
- Read the Aims & Scope of your potential target publications to ensure your article is a good fit. Aims & Scope can be found in the About tab of the journal homepage on IEEE Xplore .
- Keep in mind that some publications only accept certain types of articles. Letters publications will accept brief articles, while Transactions or Journal publications will accept full-length articles.
You can only submit your article to one publication at a time.
Follow All Submission Guidelines
All IEEE journals provide submission guidelines in an “Information for Authors” section, published in the journal or on a society’s website.
To find the guidelines for your target journal:
- find the journal’s home page on IEEE Xplore ;
- click on the About Journal tab;
- click on Publication Details.
Not following guidelines can result in delayed processing of your submission, rejection without review, or errors in your published article.
Submit Your Article
After checking that your article complies with the target journal’s submission guidelines, you are ready to submit. Click the Submit Your Manuscript button on the journal’s home page on IEEE Xplore. You will be taken to the journal’s online submission system, which will walk you through the submission process.
Post Your Paper
Learn about the IEEE posting policies that affect your paper.
Posting Your Conference Paper
After your paper is published, there are paper sharing and posting policies all authors need to understand to be in compliance with IEEE copyright policy. It is also important to understand IEEE’s policies on correcting metadata and removing access to content in the IEEE Xplore ® Digital Library . Learn about IEEE’s position on text and data mining as well as IEEE’s relationship with Portico and Interlibrary Loan.
IEEE has provided definitions for each stage of your conference paper life cycle. Also outlined are the IEEE paper sharing and posting policies for each stage.
- E-print : Digital text of a research paper.
- Preprint : Form of e-print where an author posts a draft paper on the author’s or another website. The preprint is the paper in the form prior to submission to IEEE.
- Author-submitted paper : Version of the paper originally submitted by the author to an IEEE publication.
- Accepted paper : Version of the paper which has been revised by the author to incorporate peer review suggestions, and which has been accepted by IEEE for publication.
- Final published paper : IEEE Xplore posted paper that has been reviewed and accepted, with copyediting, proofreading, and formatting added by IEEE.
Authors who have submitted or plan to submit their papers to IEEE may post their preprints in the following locations:
- arXiv.org, TechRxiv.org, or any not-for-profit preprint server approved by the Publication Services and Products Board (PSPB)
- Author’s employer’s website or institutional repository
- Author’s personal website
IEEE does not consider this to be a form of prior publication. The following statement must be included on the initial screen:
“This work has been submitted to the IEEE for possible publication. Copyright may be transferred without notice, after which this version may no longer be accessible.”
Upon acceptance of the paper by IEEE, the author must replace the posted preprint paper with either (1) the full citation to the IEEE work with the DOI, or (2) the accepted version of the paper with the DOI and an appropriate copyright notice (as described in the “ Accepted paper ” section below). No other changes may be made to the accepted paper.
Please note that once the paper has been published by IEEE, preprints on locations not specified above should be removed if possible.
Authors may share or post their author-submitted paper in the following ways:
- nn the author’s personal website or their employer’s website;
- on institutional repositories, if required;
- in the author’s own classroom use;
- on Scholarly Collaboration Networks (SCNs) that are signatories to the International Association of Scientific, Technical, and Medical Publishers’ Sharing Principles .
Unless the work is published with a U.S. Government, EU, or Crown copyright, IEEE authors must follow the copyright holder’s requirements.
Upon acceptance of the paper by IEEE, the author must replace the posted author-submitted paper with either: (1) the full citation to the IEEE work with the DOI, or (2) the accepted version of the paper with the DOI and an appropriate copyright notice, as described in the “ Accepted paper ” section below.
Authors may share or post their accepted paper in the following locations:
- Funder’s repository*
Once accepted by IEEE, the posted paper must be removed from any other third-party servers.
Unless the work is submitted as a U.S. Government, EU, or Crown copyright, IEEE must be credited as the copyright holder with the following statement included on the initial screen displaying IEEE-copyrighted material:
“© 20XX IEEE. Personal use of this material is permitted. Permission from IEEE must be obtained for all other uses, in any current or future media, including reprinting/republishing this material for advertising or promotional purposes, creating new collective works, for resale or redistribution to servers or lists, or reuse of any copyrighted component of this work in other works.”
For papers under U.S. Government, EU, or Crown copyright protection, authors must follow the copyright holder’s requirements.
*IEEE policy provides that authors are free to follow funder public access mandates to post accepted papers in repositories. When posting in a repository, the IEEE embargo period is 24 months. However, IEEE recognizes that posting requirements and embargo periods vary by funder. IEEE authors may comply with requirements to deposit their accepted papers in a repository per funder requirements where the embargo is less than 24 months. Information on specific funder requirements can be found here .
Final published paper
For papers that use the standard IEEE Copyright Form, the author may not post the final published paper online, but may:
- Share copies of the final published paper for individual personal use.
- Use the final published paper in their own classroom with permission from IEEE.
- Use in their own thesis or dissertation, provided that certain requirements are met.
Unless the work is submitted with a U.S. Government, EU, or Crown copyright, IEEE must be credited as the copyright holder with the following statement included on the initial screen displaying IEEE-copyrighted material:

Correcting Metadata in the IEEE Xplore ® Digital Library
Excerpted from the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board (PSPB) Operations Manual , Section 8.1.10.
- If an error is discovered within the metadata records for periodicals, conferences proceedings, standards, press books, educational courses, or multimedia files contained on IEEE Xplore , a request for correcting the error may be submitted to the Staff Executive – Publications. Requests shall identify the error, recommend an appropriate correction to the metadata, and provide a statement of justification for correcting the error. Acceptable requests include, but are not limited to, an author name is either missing from or spelled incorrectly; author affiliation is incorrect or missing; title of publication is incorrect; author order is incorrect; publication has missing text; publication has missing or incorrect graphics or figures; publication has an error in publication identifiers (DOI, ISSN or ISBN); and publication has been truncated or is missing pages. Such requests should be verifiable from comparing original submissions with the published work or the requester has provided sufficient documentation to justify the correction. Unacceptable requests are those that alter the author’s original intent of the paper, or that involve a possible breach of publications policy.
- The IEEE Executive Director has designated that the Staff Executive – Publications shall assign the investigation, confirmation, and correction of IEEE Xplore metadata to staff within the IEEE Publications department. Staff shall establish criteria and guidelines for correcting author metadata records in IEEE Xplore . Verification of errors shall include review and approval by the authoritative individual or body behind the publication record (such as the Editor-in-Chief, conference organizer, organizational unit, etc.). These criteria and guidelines, and changes thereto, shall be approved by PSPB before application.
- If an error is confirmed using the established criteria and guidelines, staff shall modify the IEEE metadata record itself and add an annotation to the bibliographic view in IEEE Xplore to describe the correction for the user. The full-text document (e.g., PDF) associated to the metadata shall not be changed.
- In the event a case cannot be resolved, the Vice President – Publication Services and Products, shall be the officer authorized to determine a resolution. The resolution shall be final and not subject to appeal.
- Staff of the IEEE Publications department shall provide information at the last PSPB meeting of the calendar year summarizing actions taken during the immediate past 12 months.

Removing Access to Content in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library
Excerpted from the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board (PSPB) Operations Manual , Section 8.1.11.
A. Under an extraordinary situation, it may be desirable to remove access to the content in IEEE Xplore for a specific article, standard, or press book. Removal of access shall only be considered in rare instances, and examples include, but are not limited to, a fraudulent article, a duplicate copy of the same article, a draft version conference paper, a direct threat of legal action, and an article published without copyright transfers. Requests for removal may be submitted to the Staff Executive – Publications. Such requests shall identify the publication and provide a detailed justification for removing access.
B. The IEEE Executive Director has designated that the Staff Executive – Publications shall assign the investigation and validation of requests, and removal of metadata access to staff within the IEEE Publications department. Staff shall establish criteria and guidelines for this process. Validation of requests shall include review and approval by the authoritative individual or body behind the publication record (such as the Editor-in-Chief, conference organizer, organizational unit, etc.). These criteria and guidelines, and changes thereto, shall be approved by PSPB before application. The final decision for removal, however, shall remain with the Vice President – Publication Services and Products.
C. If the request is validated and approved by the Vice President – Publication Services and Products, staff shall take the following actions.
- The original metadata record shall be retained, but staff shall annotate the record with a note regarding the status of access to the full-text document.
- The full-text document (e.g., PDF) associated to the metadata shall be handled with one of the following two actions, depending on the results of the investigation and evaluation: a. remove original full-text document, and replace with a new notice that states the reason for removal; or b. retain original full-text PDF, but annotate with comments regarding the disposition of the claim.
D. The Vice President – Publication Services and Products, shall be the officer authorized to determine a resolution. The resolution shall be final and not subject to appeal.
E. Staff of the IEEE Publications department shall document each instance for record keeping, as well as provide an information report at the last PSPB meeting of the calendar year about actions taken during the immediate past 12 months.
