Information for Authors

IEEE JOURNAL OF THE ELECTRON DEVICES SOCIETY (J-EDS) is an Open-Access, fully electronic journal which is published monthly. It comprises original and significant contributions relating to the theory, design, performance and reliability of electron devices, including optoelectronic devices, nanoscale devices, solid-state devices, integrated electronic devices, energy sources, power devices, displays, sensors, electro-mechanical devices, quantum devices and electron tubes. Tutorial and review papers on these subjects are also published and occasional special issues appear to present a collection of papers which treat particular areas in more depth and breadth. Because J-EDS is an Open Access title, on-line access is accessible to technical professionals worldwide at no charge. Submission of a manuscript amounts to the assurance that it has received proper clearance from all authors listed, from the authors’ companies or institutions where required, that it has not been copyrighted, published, or is either under review or accepted for archival publication elsewhere while under consideration by J-EDS. In cases where there is even a potential for significant overlap between the manuscript and previous work, it is the responsibility of the author(s) to provide references to pertinent previous publication and copies/preprints of manuscripts undergoing pre-publication review elsewhere. Failure to do so will compromise the peer review process and render such papers ineligible for publication.

The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual (sections 8.2.1.C & 8.2.2.A). Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind 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.

Open Access

This journal is 100% open access, which means that all content is freely available without charge to users or their institutions. All articles are published under a CC BY 4.0 license, and the author retains copyright. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, as long as proper attribution is given.

Open access is provided through the payment of an article processing charge (APC) paid after acceptance. APCs are often financed by an author’s institution or the funder supporting their research.

*Articles accepted before 12 June 2019 were published under a CC BY 3.0 or the IEEE Open Access Publishing Agreement license. Questions about copyright policies or reuse rights may be directed to the IEEE Intellectual Property Rights Office at mailto:

Corresponding authors from low-income countries are eligible for waived or reduced APCs.


All IEEE authors are expected to adhere to IEEE’s publishing ethics, including the definition of authorship, the appropriate citation of sources, the accurate reporting of data, and the publishing of original research. Visit the IEEE Author Center to learn more. All articles submitted for publication should be original and not under consideration elsewhere; if your article is based on a previous publication such as a conference proceeding, cite the original publication and clearly indicate how the articles differ. Contact the Editor-in-Chief with any questions on publishing ethics.

Submission Requirement: ORCID

All IEEE journals require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCID is a persistent unique identifier for researchers and functions similarly to an article’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI). 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.

Submission procedure

All manuscripts must be submitted electronically using IEEE’s web-based Author Submission and Peer Review System, ScholarOne Manuscripts at Please do not send manuscripts directly to the Editor-in-Chief or the Publications Office. A cover letter stating explicitly that the manuscript is being submitted for publication in IEEE JOURNAL OF THE ELECTRON DEVICES SOCIETY must accompany the manuscript. Format your article for submission by using the article template. Information on writing the abstract, using equations in your article, publishing author names in native languages, and further guidelines on the preparation of manuscripts can be obtained from the IEEE Author Center.

Supplementary Material

Information on submitting supplementary material such as graphical abstracts, multimedia, or datasets, can be found here.


Each reference cited must have a complete list of authors (no et al.), complete titles, first and last pages numbers, month and year. In addition, authors are required to include the Digital Object Identifier (DOI), where available. Supporting documentation for cited references not yet published should be provided.


All submissions will be checked for originality using the plagiarism detection software CrossCheck. Manuscripts that are found to have plagiarized others, copying someone else’s work without appropriate credit, that contain a significant crossover with another manuscript by the same authors or other author(s); copying or reusing of one’s own prior work without appropriate citation, or that do not specifically cite prior work, are subject to penalty under the IEEE policies governing publications. For more information on these policies please visit:

English Language Editing Services

English language editing services can help refine the language of your article and reduce the risk of rejection without review. IEEE authors are eligible for discounts at several language editing services; visit the IEEE Author Center to learn more. Please note these services are fee-based and do not guarantee acceptance.

Native Language Author Names

IEEE supports the publication of author names in the native language alongside the English versions of the names in the author list of an article. For more information, please visit the IEEE Author Center.

Share Your Code and Data

Increase the impact of your work by sharing your code and data for others to view, build upon, and reuse. IEEE works with Code Ocean, a cloud-based computational reproducibility platform, to make your code discoverable. IEEE DataPort, an online data repository of datasets and data analysis tools, makes your datasets discoverable. Visit the IEEE Author Center for more information.

Article Processing Charges (APCs)

Upon acceptance for publication, the author(s) will be required to pay a charge of $1350 for up to eight pages, plus $120 per printed page thereafter. These fees are to cover the cost of publication and providing free, universal access to all. The outstanding reputation and high quality of JEDS depends in part on honoring of these charges. Detailed payment instructions will accompany the page proof request.


If your article is accepted for publication, you will receive emailed instructions regarding your next steps. You may be asked to upload final production-ready files. Detailed instructions for preparing electronic files are available here. Shortly after final files are uploaded, you will receive your article proofs for final review, along with instructions on how to review your proofs and submit any corrections. Please note that major changes to your article, including the list of references, are not permitted after the article is accepted for publication. Please contact the Editor-in-Chief if you have any doubts about whether a modification you wish to make is appropriate.

Clearance and Copyright
