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 magazine

An article may be rejected before peer review if it is outside the scope of the magazine. Pick the right magazine 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 magazines.
  • 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 magazine’s homepage on IEEE Xplore.
  • Keep in mind that some magazines only accept certain types of articles. Read the magazine’s author instructions for full details.

As discussed on the Publish Original Research page, you can only submit your article to one publication at a time.

Follow all submission guidelines

All IEEE magazines provide submission guidelines in an “Information for Authors” section, published in the magazine or on a society’s website.

To find the guidelines for your target magazine:

  • Find the magazine’s home page on IEEE Xplore
  • Click on the About 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 magazine’s submission guidelines, you are ready to submit. Click the Submit Your Manuscript button on the magazine’s home page on IEEE Xplore. You will be taken to the magazine’s online submission system, which will walk you through the submission process.
