Research Categories


Proceedings of the IEEE is the leading journal to provide in-depth review, survey, and tutorial coverage of the technical developments in electronics, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science. Consistently ranked as one of the top journals by Impact Factor, Article Influence Score and more, the journal serves as a trusted resource for engineers around the world. The Proceedings publishes approximately ten Special Issues and two regular paper issues per year. -Special Issues are led by distinguished Guest Editor teams and contain articles, typically surveys, reviews or tutorials, from leading experts in the technology area being covered. They serve as a guide to the state-of-the-art and are highly valued by the core research community, as well as specialists in other areas, looking to quickly come up to speed on the latest and more promising advances in areas outside of their own expertise. -Regular Issues consist of three to four papers on more focused topics, giving readers background and insight into emerging areas. Papers published in the Proceedings are usually reviews, surveys, or tutorials. -Reviews critically examine a technology, tracing its progress from its inception to the present—and perhaps into the future. -Surveys comprehensively view a technology—its applications, issues, ramifications, and potential. -Tutorial papers explain a technology and may give practical information for implementing it. These papers are written for the purpose of informing non-specialist engineers about a particular technology.

SCImago SJR Rank

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Proceedings of the IEEE

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
