Submitting a Paper to IEEE Transactions on Privacy

TP will begin accepting submissions in January 2024 through the IEEE Author Portal. The Author Portal provides a more user-friendly interface compared to ScholarOne Manuscripts, but still connects to the journal’s peer review site. Some key features include:
  • Faster and easier article submission (authors can drag and drop all files at once)
  • Machine learning algorithms which extract key submission information from the manuscript files (authors do not have to rekey or copy and paste information from their article)
  • A single location and interface for authors to perform the entire submission and revision process
How the Author Portal Works
Once you start a new submission, the instructions on the right side of the screen will guide you through the submission steps. Please note that you cannot jump ahead or skip steps; however, you may review or revise any previously completed steps before completing your submission. The editorial office won’t see your submission until you complete the Final Review step.

Detailed information on submitting your paper to an IEEE Computer Society publication can be found on the Author Guidelines page.

Open Access

This journal is 100% open access, which means that all content is freely available without charge to users or their institutions. All articles are currently published under Creative Commons licenses (either CCBY or CCBY-NC-ND), and the author retains copyright. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles published under CCBY, or use them for any other lawful purpose, as long as proper attribution is given. Articles published under CCBY-NC-ND are also available to users under the same conditions as CCBY, but the reuse cannot be for commercial purposes or change the work in any way.

Open access is provided 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-anonymous 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.
