IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics

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. The May issue also contains enhanced papers that authors have submitted from those presented at the annual IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE). Enhanced papers from other IEEE Consumer Electronics Society conferences may be submitted at any time.

 The scope of the IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics is "The engineering and research aspects of the theory, design, construction, manufacture or end use of mass market electronics, systems, software and services for consumers".

NEWS: Our template has changed. All papers submitted after the 1st October 2016 are to use our new template, see below.

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 one of the fastest submission to e-publication times in the IEEE for non-letters. Previous issues of the IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics can be accessed from the Xplore site

Authors should note that the submission 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), although papers can be submitted at any time.

The current Impact Factor for this journal is 1.12. The acceptance ratio is currently 8% to 15% and the average delay from submission to posting on Xplore is 4 months. This journal includes the IEEE open-access policy. Details of this are sent to authors who have had their paper accepted.

As per IEEE policy, at least one author will need a valid ORCID to submit a paper.

As per IEEE policy, all papers are checked for plagiarism.

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 in the field of mass-market Consumer Electronics. 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 clearly describe how it applies to Consumer Electronics.

Authors need to download and use the electronic template from IEEE to prepare your paper. Carefully read the entire template before beginning preparation of your manuscript.

Papers can only be submitted via Cloznet. Once submitted, you should receive a receipt e-mail containing instructions to submit the mandatory IEEE Copyright Transfer & Export Control Form.

Any question related with the submission of papers or the review process you can send an email to the EiC, Fernando Pescador (UPM-Spain).

Potential authors should further note specific issues realting to this journal:

  1. Authors must use the CORRECT Word template (as above), no other templates are acceptable. We currently do not accept any papers prepared using Latex.
  2. Auhtors submit the actual Word file, not PDF. Papers must be submitted "Camera Ready". Authors cannot change their paper after submission so authors need to be very careful in the paper preparation particularly with the presentation of the reference list, page 1 footer, figures, tables, biographies, etc., all being conformant to the template style.
  3. Commercial names, part numbers and trademark terms are not allowed in this journal.
  4. Papers have a maximum of 5 authors.
  5. Papers have a maximum of 9 printed pages.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

Authors are advised to refer to the IEEE Digital Author Tools for generic advice and to familairise themselves with "Registering for an ORCID" and the "IEEE Style Manual". Thanks to the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society, one complimentary hardcopy of the issue will be sent to the contact author, kindly funded by the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society.

Authors should remember that all members of the editorial team are volunteers usually having employment or other significant time demands. Activities for IEEE, by nature, are not always a top priority for the editorial team. Authors should not become upset or discouraged if the time lapse between submission and decision is longer than author’s desire.
