Additional Information

TLT is published online using a delayed, open-access policy under which paying subscribers and per-article purchasers have access to newly published content, and then 12 months after the publication of each issue, all readers will have access to the content, free of charge. Alternatively, immediate open access is available at acceptance with payment. For further details, see the IEEE's Open Access Publishing Options.

TLT publishes archival research papers and critical survey papers. A paper must either describe original research or offer a critical review of the state of the art in a particular area. Papers concerned with evaluation of technology are only appropriate if the technology itself is novel or if significant technical insights are provided. Please be sure to visit the TLT taxonomy list.


According to Thomson Reuters' 2013 Journal Citation Report, TLT has an impact factor of 1.22.

TLT's average time to first decision for papers submitted in 2013 was 56 days and the acceptance rate for papers submitted in 2012 was 16%.
