We invite you to be among the first to have your article peer-reviewed and published in this new IEEE Journal of Indoor and Seamless Positioning and Navigation (J-ISPIN) sponsored by the IEEE Sensors Council, the IEEE Signal and Processing and the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.
This is an exciting opportunity for your research to benefit from the high visibility and interest raised by the launch of this new journal. Your work will also be exposed to 5 million unique monthly users of the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.
J-ISPIN will draw on an expert technical community to continue IEEE’s commitment to publishing the most highly-cited content. By publishing with IEEE, you will get the global prestige that high-quality research deserves. Our goal is to have your research reviewed by experts in the field of indoor and seamless positioning and navigation. This peer review process will be supported and organized by an editorial board of 15 renowned scientists from 4 continents who will contribute to the promotion of the journal. This journal is fully open and compliant with major funder mandates, including Plan S.
IEEE Author Center is sharing helpful guides, templates, and short video tutorials that can help you structure your findings as you write up your project for publication. You will find all the resources and tools you need from IEEE to create the text, graphics, and supplementary files for the IEEE journal of Indoor and Seamless Positioning and Navigation. Feel free to browse them online.
This journal is 100% open access, which means that all contents are freely available without charge to anyone. 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 financed 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.
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.
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.
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). You will need a registered ORCID to submit an article or review a proof in this journal. Learn more about ORCID and sign up for an ORCID today.
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.
For papers submitted in 2022, the Article Processing Charge (APC) is US$1850 plus applicable local taxes.
For papers submitted in 2023, the APC is US$1950 plus applicable local taxes.
The following discounts apply:
Discounts do not apply to undergraduate and graduate students. These discounts cannot be combined.
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. 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.
