IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics
The deadline for submitting articles from ICCE to IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics is now 1st April (May issue – ICCE issue)
The IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics publishes four issues per year on the latest research in the field of Consumer Electronics applicable to the scope of the journal. However, the May issue is now reserved (as of 2013) for enhanced papers that authors have submitted from those presented at the annual IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE). Timeliness of the dissemination of technical papers is of paramount concern in the ever-changing environment of the field, indeed IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics has the fastest submission to e-publication time in the IEEE for non-letters.
Previous issues of the IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics can accessed from the Xplore site.
The Latest (2011) Impact Factor for this journal is 0.941 (2010 was 1.038, 2009 was 0.942). The acceptance ratio is currently only 15% and the average delay from submission to posting on Xplore is 4 months.
In November 2011, IEEE Board of Directors approved a proposed scope change of the IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics to
The engineering and research aspects of the theory, design, construction, manufacture or end use of mass market electronics, systems, software and services for consumers
As of 2013:
Authors should note that from 2013 the submission deadlines have been brought forward by 2 weeks. Therefore the deadlines are the 1st January (for the Feb issue), 1st April (for the May issue), 1st July (for the August issue) and the 1st October (for the November issue).
The special ICCE issue has been moved from the Feb issue to the May issue to give authors time to better prepare their paper after attending ICCE. Authors are now required to cite their actual ICCE paper in the enhanced T-CE paper and specifically explain the further contributions made in the enhanced paper compared to the conference paper.
Potential authors should note:
Authors must use the CORRECT template, template.doc. Authors must not alter the template.
Commercial names and trademark terms are not allowed in this journal.
Copyright images can only be present in this journal where the authors of papers have received permission from the original copyright holder and clearly state permission has been obtained.
Authors should note the unmovable submission deadlines present in the template. However, papers can be submitted at any time.
ALL detailed information for preparation and submission is contained in the template.
Where conference papers have previously been published at one of the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society events (excluding ICCE), then significantly expanded versions of those papers with full academic rigour could be submitted at any time. However, authors should note that the new submitted paper still needs to conform to the scope of this journal and cite the original conference paper being elaborated.
Instructions to Authors of Papers submitted to the Transactions on Consumer Electronics
The primary purpose for publishing the Transactions of the Consumer Electronics Society is to present to the membership and the engineering community in general, papers on new technology oriented to Consumer Electronics that are relevant, interesting, enlightening, and instructive New technology does not simply mean new product development, although it does not preclude new product development where unusual technical achievement has been attained. The key factor is the emphasis placed on technology rather than product. All papers must meet the "Criteria for Publication" in the Transactions, and each paper must clearly describe how it applies to consumer electronics.
If you are interested in submitting a paper to the Transactions on Consumer Electronics, please download the electronic template from: template.doc. Carefully read the entire template before beginning preparation of your manuscript. The electronic template clearly describes the procedures for submitting papers as well as the above-mentioned "Criteria for Publication." The template leads you to a web site wherein you can attach and electronically submit your paper. You will also need to follow the instructions on the template to submit the required IEEE Copyright Transfer & Export Control Form.
