With the amount of research being done in the area of 5G and other communications technologies, it’s important to have an outlet where authors can quickly publish and access quality content that can help lead to the next breakthrough.

“Publishing research in IEEE Access is a great way to quickly get your work out and allow other researchers to access it. You can quickly move a field, move an industry and get technical innovation to happen more rapidly — and in terms of peer review IEEE is the ‘gold standard’,” said IEEE Fellow and IEEE Access author Ted Rappaport. “This model has really worked well increasing the visibility for our work at New York University in 5G wireless research and development, in some cases leading to more rapid product development cycles.”

Below are three ways that publishing with IEEE Access helps advance technical innovation.

1 – Share Groundbreaking Research Quickly with a Wide Audience

IEEE Access articles undergo a rigorous, yet rapid peer review process that enables research to be published within a period of four to six weeks. Since IEEE Access is a fully open access journal, the research will appear in the IEEE Xplore digital library, providing exposure to millions of researchers, academics and industry professionals around the world, at no charge.

Also, viewers of articles are able to post comments, questions, videos, images and related content, enabling authors to receive valuable feedback on their work. 

2 – Emerging Technology in Many Disciplines

IEEE Access accepts multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary articles covering all IEEE fields of interest. The journal is ideal for articles that do not fit neatly in traditional journals, while having the prestige of an IEEE publication. IEEE Access publishes articles that are of high interest to readers: original, technically correct and clearly presented. 

3 – Bring Research to Life with Video Content

Adding a video that features experimental demonstrations, simulations, insights from the author of the paper or interviews with other experts can enhance the content and may result in an increased number of downloads.
