Policy for Authors Publishing to IEEE Journals - IEEE requires an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors publishing articles in IEEE journals.


ORCID orcid_24x24

All IEEE journals require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors.  ORCIDs enable accurate attribution and improved discoverability of an author’s published work.  The author will need a registered ORCID in order to submit a manuscript or review a proof in this journal.





Follow these steps to link a ScholarOne account to a registered ORCID:

  1. Login to ScholarOne and click on your name in top right corner of the screen.
  2. Click E-mail / Name in the dropdown menu.
  3. In the ORCID section at the top of the page, click the appropriate link to either register for a new ORCID or associate the account with an existing ORCID.
  4. A new page will open to create and/or validate your ORCID.  Once the validation is complete, the new page will close and you will return to ScholarOne.
  5. Save the changes to your ScholarOne user account.

Authors who do not have an ORCID in their ScholarOne user account will be prompted to provide one during submission. 

 The Journal of Micrelectromechanical Systems (JMEMS) publishes original and significant contributions, describing advances in the field and relating to the theory, modeling, design, fabrication, assembly and packaging, performance characterization and reliability of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). In general, JMEMS papers and letters contain experimental data.

All contributed and invited paper submissions to the IEEE JMEMS must be submitted using IEEE’s web-based ScholarOne Author Submission and Peer Review System.  Manuscripts submitted in any other way will be returned to the sender.

To submit manuscripts using ScholarOne, please click here or login to ScholarOne using the login box.

Topics covered in JMEMS papers deal with micromechanics, microdynamical systems, RF MEMS, MEMS with functional interfaces to biosystems and to the environment, micro- and nanofabrication technologies (top-down and bottom-up), materials properties and functional materials for MEMS, phenomena pertinent to MEMS designs and performance, interface issues affecting mechanical, electrical, chemical, and biological factors associated with MEMS, tribology issues for small devices.

Typical MEMS devices have smaller than mm dimensions and they are characterized by engineering and control of lengths and movements that range typically from nanometers to micrometers.  JMEMS includes and welcomes topics in MEMS, which include aspects of nanotechnologies in functional design, materials integration and fabrication.

The Journal of Microelectromechanicalsystems (JMEMS) is published under the joint sponsorship of three societies of the IEEE: Electron DevicesIndustrial Electronics, and Robotics and Automation Societies.

Peer Review

The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual ( Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-anonymous peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.
