Two Additional Transactions to Adopt OnlinePlus

February 4, 2014

The IEEE Transactions on Haptics (ToH) and the IEEE Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB) have announced plans to move to our popular OnlinePlus publication model.

ToH, a quarterly journal that addresses the science, technology and applications associated with information acquisition and object manipulation through touch, will adopt the OnlinePlus model this year. TCBB, a bimonthly journal that emphasizes the algorithmic, mathematical, statistical and computational methods that are central in bioinformatics and computational biology, will move to OnlinePlus beginning with 2015 issues.

OnlinePlus continues to be a great value to subscribers, offering additional benefits at a lower price when compared to a traditional print subscription. Online access offers the journal's complete issue archive at your fingertips, while the printed abstract books and archival CDs deliver the journal's most recently published issues to your doorstep. For a portable option that doesn't require WiFi, issues can also be downloaded in EPUB or Mobi format and viewed on an eBook reader. Whether you're sitting in an armchair or soaring at 30,000 feet, an OnlinePlus subscription ensures you have the flexibility to access cutting-edge research in a format that suits your needs.


Improvements to the OnlinePlus CD interface

April 24, 2012

We are pleased to announce that the OnlinePlus publication model continues to evolve. As of the second quarter of 2012, the OnlinePlus disk that is mailed to subscribers features an upgraded HTML interface, allowing subscribers to display the table of contents for all issues in a single page. Readers can view the abstracts for the papers one at a time or expand them for an entire issue at once. The smaller size of the HTML file renders more quickly than the previously used PDF format, allowing for faster browsing and searching, and the new interface appears in the user's default browser, so there's no need to launch a PDF reader. In addition, HTML versions of all articles are now included in addition to the PDFs of the papers, as well as MOBI files and EPUB files so subscribers can send a copy of any paper or issue to their Kindle or other eBook reader.


Three more Transactions will switch to the OnlinePlus publication model starting with 2013 issues.

April 24, 2012

The IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC), the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE), and the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE) are the next set of titles to adopt the OnlinePlus publication model beginning with 2013 issues. TC, a monthly journal, publishes research in areas such as computer organizations and architectures, digital devices, operating systems, and new and important applications and trends. TSE, publishing monthly starting in 2013, publishes well-defined theoretical results and empirical studies that have a potential impact on the construction, analysis, or management of software. TKDE, also publishing monthly, features papers designed to inform researchers, developers, managers, strategic planners, users, and others interested in state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice activities in the knowledge and data engineering area.

The OnlinePlus publication model is a hybrid of online-only and print. Subscribers to TC, TSE, and TKDE will receive full archival online access plus four quarterly abstract books. In addition, they will receive interactive discs that contain the complete contents of every issue, including supplemental material, all for a lower price than traditional print.

Subscribers to TVCG, TDSC, TPAMI, TMC, and TPDS saved between 17 and 35 percent when the journals transitioned to the OnlinePlus publication model with 2011 or 2012 issues.

Two More Transactions Move to Our New Publishing Model

March 24, 2011

Two more transactions have committed to transitioning to the OnlinePlus publication model starting with 2012 issues.

The IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing (TMC), which is celebrating its 10th year anniversary this year and the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS) are the next set of titles to adopt the OnlinePlus publication model beginning with 2012 issues. TMC, a monthly journal, publishes mature works of research that focuses on the key technical issues related to Mobile Computing. TPDS, publishing monthly, distributes a range of papers that deal with the parallel and distributed systems research areas of current importance to our readers.

The OnlinePlus publication model is a hybrid of online only and print. Subscribers of both TMC and TPDS will receive full archival online access plus four quarterly abstract books. In addition, they will receive interactive disks that contain the complete contents of every issue, including supplemental material, all for a lower price than traditional print.

Subscribers of TVCG, TDSC, and TPAMI saved between 17 and 35 percent when the journals transitioned to the OnlinePlus publication model with 2011 issues.

TPAMI to offer OnlinePlus Subscription Option

July 13, 2010

Beginning in 2011, IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence will offer two subscription options: the traditional print plus online or OnlinePlus.

IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence will cost US $77 for a print plus online subscription, and US $49 for the new OnlinePlus option—a savings of nearly 35 percent. The monthly scholarly journal publishes research about traditional areas of computer vision and image understanding, all traditional areas of pattern analysis and recognition, and selected areas of machine intelligence.

The OnlinePlus publication model is a hybrid of online only and print, giving subscribers the best of both worlds—nline access plus a printed book of article abstracts and a searchable interactive disk that gives readers the flexibility of accessing content anywhere without needing to be online, a benefit for those readers with limited Internet access. In addition to containing the papers in their entirety, the interactive disk will also contain supplemental materials that are usually only posted online in the Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL). Providing an additional venue for supplemental materials could encourage authors to submit multimedia files more often, leading to a richer content for research.


Two Transactions Move to New Publishing Model

April 8, 2010

Recognizing the need for quicker access to research, two IEEE Computer Society journals will transition to a new publishing model starting with their 2011 issues.

IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) and IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing (TDSC) will be adopting the new "OnlinePlus" publication model beginning with 2011 issues. TVCG, which will become a monthly journal in 2011, publishes research on subjects related to computer graphics and visualization techniques, systems, software, hardware, and user interface issues. TDSC, which will now be a bimonthly journal in 2011, publishes archival research results focusing on foundations, methodologies, and mechanisms that support the achievement—through design, modeling, and evaluation—of systems and networks that are dependable and secure to the desired degree without compromising performance.

The "OnlinePlus" publication model will give subscribers three ways to receive journal content for a lower price than traditional print: Online Access, interactive disk, and a book of article abstracts. "We are entering a new era of scholarly publication that will raise the standards for publishing new ideas," said Vice President of Publications David Alan Grier. "This new format will give scholars a better opportunity to review and test the concepts in the articles. It will also give readers a much clearer presentation of new technologies and new ideas."

The new model will speed up publication of research—and access to that research. "The OnlinePlus model will drastically shorten the time from submission to final publication, allowing researchers and practitioners nearly instant access to relevant and proven research results," said Transactions Operations Chair Jean-Luc Gaudiot. "We have more flexibility with the Abstracts-only book and interactive disk instead of a standard print page budget."

In addition to containing the papers in their entirety, the interactive disk will contain supplemental materials that are usually only posted online in the Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL), thus making it possible to view them without accessing the Internet. Providing an additional venue for supplemental materials could encourage authors to submit multimedia files more often, leading to a richer content for research. The disk will also allow readers the flexibility of viewing content without needing to be online, a benefit for those readers with limited Internet access.

All papers will continue to be published with volume, issue, and page numbers, and contributing authors will receive a full printed copy of the issue in which their paper is published.

OnlinePlus further aligns the Computer Society with the IEEE's Green Initiative, according to Evan Butterfield, the Computer Society's Director of Products & Services. "It's a more environmentally responsible model that dramatically reduces the amount of paper we use, as well as reducing the impact of mailing and shipping."
