Redesigned IEEE Author Center Introduces New-Author Support and Improves Search Capability

img

The newly redesigned IEEE Author Center now features a section for new authors, a new look, and improved search capability. 

The IEEE Author Center is a one-stop resource for all IEEE authors, offering help and information for those publishing in journals, conferences, books, and magazines. Since its launch in 2017, the IEEE Author Center has helped over 1 million authors learn how to publish with IEEE. We invite you to check out the new site and share any feedback or questions with the IEEE Author Engagement team at authors@ieee.org.

New Tool for Authors Eases Template Selection 

IEEE Publishing Operations is pleased to introduce the IEEE Template Selector tool, which helps authors select and download the right article template for their work. The tool asks the author a series of branching questions to determine the appropriate template and then provides the file for download. We recommend that you try the tool to familiarize yourself with the author’s experience in downloading a template.

Note that template files are no longer housed in the IEEE Author Center website; authors are now directed to the Template Selector to download templates. Be sure to review your author instructions and update them to point your authors to the tool.

Share any feedback you may have on the Template Selector with the IEEE Author Engagement team at authors@ieee.org.

Get Preliminary Feedback on Your Work With TechRxiv

Post your research article drafts to the preprint server TechRxiv (pronounced “tech archive”), which is a free, publicly accessible archive for unpublished research in electrical engineering, computer science, and related technology. 

Posting your drafts enables you to receive early feedback from other researchers before you submit your work for formal peer review and publication. You can post to TechRxiv regardless of where you eventually intend to submit and publish your work.

Guidance for Authors

The IEEE Author Center is a one-stop shop for information on publishing in an IEEE journal, conference, magazine, or book. Topics covered on the website include how to prepare your work for publication, how IEEE handles peer review, what happens after your paper is accepted, and how to adhere to IEEE’s ethical guidelines. Useful resources such as templates and tools are also available to make publishing with IEEE seamless.

Engage With Other Authors

Join your fellow authors in the IEEE AuthorLab, a free community forum about publishing with IEEE. Participate in discussions, share links and ideas about publishing, and ask questions of other community participants or IEEE Publications staff.
