IEEE, the world's largest technical professional organisation dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, has announced the launch of TechRxiv.org, a preprint server for the global technology community. TechRxiv.org is a collaborative multidisciplinary hub that will facilitate the open dissemination of scientific findings in electrical engineering, computer science, and related technologies. This is the latest offering in IEEE’s expanding publishing program, which provides authors with additional tools for enhancing their research, in support of open science.
TechRxiv.org is a free repository that provides researchers across a broad range of fields the opportunity to share early results of their work ahead of formal peer review and publication. IEEE continues to provide researchers the opportunity to share early results and respond to comments and recommendations for improvement, ahead of formal peer review and publication.
TechRxiv.org will help drive the pace of scientific discovery and information dissemination by providing freely accessible, fully citable preliminary technical communications, each with their own unique digital object identifier (DOI). Preprint activity provides opportunities for collaboration and shapes ongoing studies with informal feedback from other researchers. Further, submission of articles prior to formal peer review and publication helps demonstrate prior art in research discoveries.
Following proper guidelines, a paper within scope that is submitted to TechRxiv.org can still be submitted formally to a conference or journal for formal peer review and publication, whether it be an IEEE publication or a publication of another publisher.
To ensure TechRxiv.org would meet the needs of the technical community, IEEE worked closely with an advisory board of subject matter experts across a wide range of fields from such esteemed universities and research organisations including the University of Maryland, University of Rochester, University of Texas at Dallas, Northeastern University, the University of South Alabama and Raytheon Corporation. All submissions to TechRxiv.org are screened prior to acceptance by a panel of experts, and although not peer reviewed, the papers are checked for plagiarism and inappropriate content.
IEEE encourages all researchers working in the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, and related technologies to submit their unpublished research to www.techrxiv.org.
