IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior, and Identity Science

Publication Menu


The IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior, and Identity Science  publishes original articles on all aspects of biometrics (i.e. recognizing people through their physiological or behavioral traits such as face, fingerprint, iris, and signature), including theory, applications, systems, and surveys. Biometrics are personal identity characteristics where people are recognized by who they are rather than by what they own; behavior is the typical movement of a person that is unique and identifiable; identity science underlies the application of biometrics. Papers focusing on ramifications of these areas will also be welcomed, such as security of such systems, standards for their deployment, and new architectures and systems are also welcomed. Broad topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Biometric modalities and their fusion
  • Novel pattern classification and machine learning, including deep learning, algorithms for biometrics and identity science
  • Behavior analysis related to biometrics and identity science
  • Security of biometrics and identity systems
  • Applications including forensics, healthcare, and law enforcement

This publication considers original works that enhance the existing body of knowledge. The results described in the article should not have been submitted or published elsewhere. Expanded versions of conference publications may be submitted. Articles must be intelligible and must be written in standard English.

  • Peer Review: Peer review is vital to the quality of published research. Each article submitted to IEEE is evaluated by at least two independent reviewers selected by a member of the publication's editorial board. Learn more about the IEEE peer review process.
  • Publication Fees: This publication is supported by subscriptions and applicable Article Processing Charges (APCs). Although there is no cost for publishing with IEEE, authors may wish to take advantage of some of our fee-based offerings; visit the IEEE Author Center for more information on available options.
  • Errors in Published Articles: Authors who have detected an error in their published article should contact the Editor-in-Chief shown above to request the publication of a correction. Note that no change may be made to the original article after it is published in IEEE Xplore.
