Supported by author publication fees, all of our open access journals will utilize the same high standard of peer review for all content submitted.  In addition, IEEE’s open access multidisciplinary journal (IEEE Access) and fully open access topical journals will draw on technical communities for peer reviewers, to apply the same care as for any new IEEE journal and ensure the best possible papers are being published.
