Manuscript Submission Options

The Trasnsactions on Reliabilty is a hybrid journal allowing either:

  • Traditional manuscript submissions
  • NEW Open Access (author-pays OA fee) manuscript submissions at the discounted at the rate of $1,750 per article.

The OA option, if selected, enables unrestricted public access to the article via IEEE Xplore. The OA option will be offered to the author at the time the manuscript is submitted and is a part of the standard submission process. If selected, the OA fee must be paid before the article is published in the journal.

The traditional option, if selected, enables access to all qualified subscribers and purchasers via IEEE Xplore. It is unchanged from the  past and no OA payment is required.

The IEEE peer review standard of excellence is applied consistently to all submissions. All accepted articles will be included in both the online and print issues.

Any other applicable charges (such as the over-length page charge and/or charge for the use of color in the print format) will be billed separately once the manuscript formatting is complete but prior to the publication.

You will be given the option of either Open Access or traditional during the submission process.
