Author Benefits

Findability. Credibility. Flexibility.

Authors publish with IEEE for the heightened visibility, research activity, and industry credibility. IEEE continues to be the most cited publisher in U.S. and European new technology patents.

Authors will find that publishing with IEEE ensures professional development and exposure of their works.

Optimized visibility

Researchers rely on IEEE for trusted information. Nearly nine million downloads each month is strong evidence that the IEEE Xplore® digital library provides authors with the “findability” they seek.

IEEE maintains active partnerships with abstracting and indexing providers such as Elsevier, Thomson Reuters, ProQuest, IET, and NLM to maximize the discovery of author works.
