About Proceedings of the IEEE

One of the Most Influential Reference Resources for Engineers Around the World

Proceedings of the IEEE is the leading journal to provide in-depth review, survey, and tutorial coverage of the technical developments in electronics, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science. Consistently ranked as one of the top journals by Impact Factor, Article Influence Score and more, the journal serves as a trusted resource for engineers around the world.

Also referred to as the Proceedings, or IEEE Proceedings, the journal offers applications-oriented coverage that goes beyond the traditional boundaries typically found in other journals to provide readers with a broader technical perspective for professional growth, enrichment, and development.

Areas Covered

The Proceedings covers all important technical developments in the areas of electronics, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science. From Big Data to Plasmonics, Cyber-Physical Systems, to Power and Energy, Proceedings papers provide a survey, review, or tutorial treatment of the subject. Take a look at our recent and past issues to see the range of topics covered.

Type of Content

The Proceedings publishes approximately ten Special Issues and two regular paper issues per year.

Special Issues are led by distinguished Guest Editor teams and contain articles, typically surveys, reviews or tutorials, from leading experts in the technology area being covered. They serve as a guide to the state-of-the-art and are highly valued by the core research community, as well as specialists in other areas, looking to quickly come up to speed on the latest and more promising advances in areas outside of their own expertise.

Regular Issues consist of three to four papers on more focused topics, giving readers background and insight into emerging areas.

Papers published in the Proceedings are usually reviews, surveys, or tutorials.

  • Reviews critically examine a technology, tracing its progress from its inception to the present—and perhaps into the future.
  • Surveys comprehensively view a technology—its applications, issues, ramifications, and potential.
  • Tutorial papers explain a technology and may give practical information for implementing it. These papers are written for the purpose of informing non-specialist engineers about a particular technology.

More than 100 Years of Excellence in Publishing

The Proceedings has a rich and long history that can be traced back to its early beginnings in 1909, when it was known as the Proceedings of the Wireless Institute. For more than a century, the Proceedings has documented and influenced the major developments in technology.
