The Trusted Solution for Open Access Publishing

Now Offering More Options for Authors and Institutions

Open access is one part of the larger open science movement, helping to make scientific research and data accessible to all, while speeding up the entire process—from lab discovery to the application of the research.

IEEE strives to support the work and needs of all authors globally—those who prefer to publish in traditional subscription journals or those who prefer or are required to publish via open access. Many authors in today’s publishing environment want to make their research freely available to all reader communities. To help authors gain maximum exposure for their groundbreaking research, IEEE has multiple open access options available to meet the needs of our authors throughout their careers. Heightened visibility, consistent quality, and industry credibility make IEEE publications trusted sources for researchers around the world.

A Growing Collection of Open Access Options

IEEE offers the following options for open access (OA) publishing, all designed to meet the varying needs of authors throughout their careers.

  • IEEE Access—A highly-cited, multidisciplinary, fully open access journal that has published more than 70,000 articles to date
  • Fully Open Access Topical Journals—A fast-growing collection covering specific subject areas such as computing, telecommunications, power and energy, nanotechnology, and more. More than 30 titles in all.
  • Hybrid Journals—more than 170 top-cited journals and magazines spanning an array of technology fields, all offering open access options

IEEE Open Access Solutions for Institutions

IEEE offers open access programs designed to make it convenient for institutions to support and manage costs for authors and simplify the publishing process by paying for article processing charges (APCs) in advance. IEEE now has new flexible options for any size organization, designed to make it easy for institutions to assist their authors and demonstrate their support for open access.

IEEE Open Science and Discoverability Solutions

IEEE is continually working to develop more tools, services, and publication opportunities for authors and researchers to help increase the exposure of their work. To that end, IEEE has also introduced the following open science initiatives to further support researchers and enable greater discoverability of their research.

Code Ocean

Code Ocean is an easy-to-use web platform in which users can share and run code in the cloud. Users are able to easily upload their code and associated data to the site, where other users are able to run them and/or modify them.

IEEE DataPort

Research data sharing is critical to scientific innovation and reproducible research. IEEE DataPort is an accessible online platform that enables researchers to easily share, access, and manage datasets in one trusted location. The platform accepts all types of datasets, up to 2TB. Standard dataset uploads are free of charge.


TechRxiv is a free preprint server for unpublished research in electrical engineering, computer science, and related technology. TechRxiv provides researchers across a broad range of fields the opportunity to share early results of their work ahead of formal peer review and publication.  The free, publicly accessible repository aims to increase the accessibility of scientific findings, enhance collaboration among researchers, improve research, and build the future of scholarly communication. Authors can post preprint papers to TechRxiv regardless of where they eventually intend to submit and publish the paper.
