Publishing with IEEE

Are you thinking of publishing, or not sure where best to submit your manuscript? The IEEE has more than 175 journals covering a broad spectrum of engineering and technology areas plus open access options.

This practical workshop will talk through how to find the right journal/conference to submit to, overview of the process and some helpful tips to help give your paper the best chance of acceptance.
This session will cover:

  • An introduction and why publish with the IEEE
  • Choosing the best fit periodical or conference for your research
  • Preparing the manuscript
  • Submitting the article
  • Review process
  • What editors look for
  • Why a paper may be rejected
  • IEEE Open Access Publishing (including university support available)
  • Common best practices and errors when writing a paper
  • Tools and resources to help authors

  • Talk by Julia Stockdale
All University of Leicester PGRs and researcher welcome.

Finding our training

I had some feedback last week that searching PROSE is not the easiest way to find out what library training is on offer.

We sympathise with you! An alternative is to look at the list of training on our Researchers page

Or you can look at brand new guide to the Postgraduate Researcher Workshop Programme

If you have any questions about the training please email Selina or myself: librarians@le.ac.uk



Library publishing services

The Library offers several services to help you publish and disseminate your research. We can help you publish reports, journals and conference proceedings. We also support the publishing of digital collections.

Research publications The Library can help you to publish one-off reports in an open access format. See this example from the SAPPHIRE Group in Health Sciences.  If you want to start a new open access journal or conference proceedings, we have our own version of Open Journal Systems (OJS). This is journal management and publishing platform for academic publications. Articles published through this system are free to any reader, and no APCs are charged to authors. 
Please contact Library Research Services for more information: librarians@le.ac.uk
