IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics
Impact factor: 4.300 (2022)
Four issues are published in the IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics publishes four issues each year. Previous issues can be found at the Xplore site.
In compliance with IEEE, the speed of review and decision for a submitted manuscript will be reviewed using the two indicators (1) S21D (average weeks submitted to 1st decision) and (2) S2OP (average weeks submitted to online post).
The TCE team will exercise full effort to aim at the following targets:
S21D ≤ 10 wks
S2OP ≤ 24 wks
The IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics (TCE) focuses on engineering and research aspects of the electronics, communications and controls, informatics, infotainment, computational intelligence, systems and services, product safety and standardizations for consumer products, technologies and users. TCE covers the theory, innovative development methods, practical implementation, R&D trends, standard use cases, regulatory issues and best practices for consumer applications. The transaction features State-Of-the-Art papers (SoA), case studies of standards, literature reviews, curiosity-driven research, technical innovations, creative ideas, pragmatic consumer practitioners appreciations, key insights and tutorial surveys, etc.
Topics of TCE
IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics topics include, but are not limited to, the followings:
l To submit a manuscript, at least one of the authors must present a valid ORCID
l ScholarOne is the sole way to submit the manuscript
l Authors should use the electronic template from IEEE template selector to prepare their paper. A template for SOA can be found here. The IEEE Author Center can be helpful in providing guidance to authors.
l Authors may upload up to 2TB of data related to their article to IEEE DataPort at no cost (or at low cost if the dataset must be Open Access). Providing data with your article can strengthen your submission and make your research more easily reproducible. Authors can provide the DOI and title of their dataset during the manuscript submission in ScholarOne. Use this link to access IEEE DataPort.
l Only the camera-ready PDF files are needed from authors for their first submission. The source materials (Word, Latex, etc) will be required after the manuscript has been accepted.
l This journal does not accept manuscripts with commercial names, part numbers, or trademark phrases.
l Authors need to supplement sufficient descriptions of the relationship between their contributions to Consumer Technologies/Electronics in their manuscripts. Otherwise, the manuscript will be admin rejected.
l The similarity (i.e., the percentage), excluding the part from bibliographies and biographies, must be no more than 30%.
l The maximum file size is limited to 40MB.
l When the manuscript is accepted, a receipt e-mail with information on how to complete the mandatory IEEE Copyright Transfer & Export Control Form will be sent to authors.
l The biographies for all authors of an accepted manuscript MUST be included.
l The recommended maximum length is 12 pages for technical paper, and 20 pages for survey paper (effective since September 20, 2022). Besides, if the manuscript exceeds 8 pages (for both regular and "Special Section" papers in TCE), 250 USD will be charged per extra page by IEEE. For instance, If your manuscript has 12 pages finally, 1000 USD will be charged.
l English Editing Services are provided and recommended for non-native speakers to improve the paper quality if necessary.
TCE invites state-of-the-art research to be submitted as "Invited Paper". Authors may self-nominate. Please write to email@example.com to notify the Editor-in-Chief of your submission.
*For speedy publication purpose, and with the consent of GEs of the corresponding SS, the Editor-in-Chief may post special section papers to regular paper track
Policies and guidelines
1) IEEE Peer Review Policy
The manuscripts to the IEEE TCE are peer reviewed in compliance with the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual's standards (sections 8.2.1.C & 8.2.2.A). Each submitted manuscript will be reviewed by at least THREE (3) independent reviewers through single-blind peer review process.
2) IEEE Copyright Policy
Authors must sign a digital version of the IEEE Copyright Form upon acceptance of the paper to conform with the United States Copyright Law. After the manuscript is accepted, authors will be instantly led to the eCF (electronic Copyright Form).
3) IEEE Plagiarism Policy
It includes THREE (3) statement that deals with multiple submissions or publications of the same work; plagiarism; and electronic posting of papers on author websites. Authors are responsible for understanding, complying with these policies, and acknowledging them when submitting. Failure to comply with these policies may lead to penalties for future publication in IEEE venues.
4) Article Processing Charges Waiver Policy
Open access APCs are waived or lowered for corresponding authors from low-income countries.
5) IEEE Author Center
