Follow the instructions to submit your paper.

Peer Review Process

All articles submitted to IET journals go through a rigorous peer-review process to maintain and enhance the quality of the journal, and to help authors improve their manuscripts.

  1. Submitted manuscripts are sent to independent expert referees who provide constructive criticism and make recommendations on whether it’s ready for publication.
  2. Based on the reports, each journal’s editorial board will make the final decision.
  3. Authors may be asked to make revisions to their manuscript, add or remove material, or respond to points raised by the referees before the final decision is made.
