IEEE Commits its Hybrid Journals Portfolio to Transformative Journal Status Under Plan S

Tuesday, November 29th, 2022

PISCATAWAY, N.J. 28 November 2022 — IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announced today that it has committed its full portfolio of more than 160 hybrid journals, which publish both open access and subscription-based content, to become Transformative Journals under Plan S.

This commitment means that any authors receiving research grants from Coalition S, a group of research funders, are compliant with Plan S requirements when publishing their research articles in any IEEE fully open access or hybrid journals. In addition to the existing direct open access agreements with hundreds of institutions, all of IEEE’s hybrid journals (including TNANO) now qualify as ‘Transformative Journals’ under Plan S.

IEEE has worked directly with the leadership of Coalition S to ensure compliance with the Plan S criteria for transformative publications. Under this criteria, a Transformative Journal is a subscription/hybrid journal that is committed to eventually transition to a fully OA journal over time. In addition, it is required to gradually increase the share of OA content and offset subscription income from payments for publishing services. More details on the Coalition S criteria for Transformative Journals and the open access publication targets for each IEEE transformative journal can be found here.

The Nanotechnology Council’s fully open access (‘gold’) journal, the IEEE Open Journal of Nanotechnology (OJ-NANO), publishing high-quality peer reviewed papers, is already compliant with Plan S. OJ-NANO covers the theory, design, and development of nanotechnology and its scientific, engineering, and industrial applications .

Call For Papers: TNANO Special Section

Thursday, September 22nd, 2022



The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Section on:


Spintronics uses magnetic degrees of freedom for information processing and storage. Based on the commercial success of magnetic random-access memory and magnetic sensor technology, the field has received strongly growing interest in recent years. Numerous advanced spintronic device concepts have been proposed and both experimentally and theoretically studied within emerging research fields such as magnonics, magnetoelectrics, spin-orbitronics, or spin-caloritronics. These topics are greatly interesting from the point of view of fundamental science, but also promise potential for disruptive applications in numerous fields of (micro-)electronics.

This special issue covers all aspects of advanced spintronics with a focus on (micro- or nanoscale) device applications. Contributions are welcome at all levels, including fundamental science, novel materials, technology concepts, and device fabrication and characterization. The special issue intends to provide a platform to bring together researchers in various multidisciplinary fields in basic science and engineering, such as electrical engineering, computer science, materials science and chemistry, and physics.
