Aims & Scope
This new fully open access journal will publish high-quality, peer-reviewed papers covering the theory, analysis, design, tools, and implementation of circuits and systems. This includes their theoretical foundations, applications, and architectures, as well as circuits and systems implementation of algorithms for signal and information processing.
The journal publishes articles that are between 5 and 12 pages long, including references and authors' biographies. Page limits apply: shorter or longer papers are not allowed.
This journal is 100% open access, which means that all content is freely available without charge to users or their institutions. 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 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 Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual (https://pspb.ieee.org/images/files/files/opsmanual.pdf). 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 articles must be submitted via our submission site at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/oj-cas (launching August 2019).
- Format your article for submission by using the article template, located in the IEEE Author Center. [Word and LaTeX versions are available.]
- Submit your article text in PDF format. Visit the IEEE Author Center for information on writing the abstract, using equations in your article, publishing author names in native languages, and more.
- Submit your figures individually in PS, EPS, PDF, PNG, or TIF format. Visit the IEEE Author Center for information on resolution, size requirements, file naming conventions, and more.
- For information on submitting supplementary material such as graphical abstracts, multimedia, or datasets, visit the IEEE Author Center.
Publication Fees Policy and Article Processing Charges (APCs)
As we aim to publish widely indexed, carefully copyedited, high-quality manuscripts, publication of an accepted paper requires expensive production steps. In the editing and production stage, IEEE employs professional full-time staff and freelancers, and we have to pay for these services. To defray these costs (and because we do not sell subscriptions like toll-access journals) we require authors to pay certain fees.
Authors publishing in OJ-CAS pay an article processing fee open access fee (also called an open access, or OA fee) only in case of acceptance in the amounts stated below.
These fees are usually funded from research grants, and new researchers in the area are urged to budget for open access publications in their grant proposals, much as they budget for conference presentations.
Article processing fees for Open Access journals have become an increasingly accepted method to defray the costs for publication, and fortunately, most institutions have developed mechanisms and funding sources to cover publication costs in high-quality open access journals.
The APCs for this journal are as follows:
- APC: $1,750
- 40% Promotional discount for CAS members: $1,050
- 15% Promotional discount for IEEE members and members of other IEEE Societies: $1,488
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
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.
Share Your Code and Data
Increase the impact of your work by sharing your code and data for others to view, build upon, and reuse. IEEE works with Code Ocean, a cloud-based computational reproducibility platform, to make your code discoverable. IEEE DataPort, an online data repository of datasets and data analysis tools, makes your datasets discoverable. Visit the IEEE Author Center for more information.
