TIE - Out-of-Scope Topics


Scope - IEEE T Industrial Electronics

The IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics publishes papers with experimentally verified applications of electronics, controls, instrumentation, and computation for the enhancement of industrial systems and processes. Included are power electronics and electric motor drives, system control, signal processing, fault detection and diagnosis, power electronics in renewable energy and power systems, instrumentation, measurement and testing, modeling and simulation, motion control, applications in mechatronics and robotics, sensors and actuators, and applications of artificial intelligence in industrial electronic systems.

IEEE T Industrial Electronics has a wide scope, as given above. There are however topics that are outside the scope and papers in such areas are likely to be rejected without the review. Some examples are given below. Please check whether your paper belongs to any of the listed areas. If in doubt, please contact the Editor-in-Chief to clarify whether or not your paper is within the scope. Please also remember that a proper experimental verification is mandatory.
