Why submit a paper?

New journal launching October 2018 – IET Trustworthy IoT

‘as a fully open access journal, IET trustworthy IoT aims to provide a forum in which practitioners, academics, decision makers, and other stakeholders can report a plurality of findings that foster a globally visible and wider discourse and lead to the creation of Trustworthy IoT. The journal covers-cross disciplinary socio-technical topics, although we welcome both purely social and purely technical papers.

The pace of change in iot makes this aim an urgent one. Therefore, the journal will encourage the rapid dissemination of findings, as well as a broad spectrum of types of contributions – including industrial experience reports, fast track communications, research papers, reports on software/hardware tools, design studies, opinion pieces, and surveys and reviews. The most important criteria for all submission types will be the international quality, significance, and relevance of the reported findings to attaining Trustworthy IoT.

Topics of interest include the following broad areas:

  • Networks and communication
  • Policy, ethics, governance, and innovation
  • Security and resilience
  • Human system interactions and autonomy
  • Alternative computing paradigms

We will invite selected papers to be expanded and submitted for consideration in the journal.

In addition to being able to present your research as either an oral paper or poster, as a successful author, the IET guarantees that your paper will be published and made available to the world’s leading research scientists and engineers via the following publications / databases:

IET Conference Proceedings

Your paper will be published in the official conference proceedings which is identified by an International Standard Book Number and recognised as a commercial publication.

All conference delegates receive a free copy as part of their registration fee.


IET Inspec

IET Inspec is a major indexing database and incredibly valuable source for scientists, engineers and information professionals around the world.

The Inspec database contains nearly 12 million bibliographic abstracts and indexing to journal articles, conference proceedings, technical reports and other literature in the fields of science and technology.

Inspec Direct is the English-language bibliographic information service providing access to the world's scientific and technical literature via a precision research tool with sophisticated support functionality that allows users to analyse, store and communicate their findings.


IET Digital Library

The IET Digital Library holds more than 100,000 technical papers from 1994 onwards for all IET journals, magazines, conference, and seminar proceedings.

Highly cited journals are available alongside, the IET's member magazine E&T, plus seminar and conference publications.


IEEE Xplore

Delivering full text access to the world's highest quality technical literature in engineering and technology, IEEE Xplore is a scholarly research database that indexes, abstracts, and provides full-text for articles and papers on computer science, electrical engineering and electronics.

The IEEE Xplore database contains over two million records which is almost one third of the world’s current literature in electrical engineering, communications and computer science.

Authors may have the opportunity to be filmed and have their presentation recorded, live at the event.

The footage of your presentation and synchronised PowerPoint slides will be made available via - a web-based service which delivers synchronised multi-media content to PC and MAC browsers anytime, anywhere in the world.


Ei Compendex

Ei Compendex is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world.

It provides a truly holistic and global view of peer reviewed and indexed publications with over 20 million records from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines.

Every record is carefully selected and indexed using the Engineering Index Thesaurus to ensure discovery and retrieval of engineering-specific literature that engineering students and professionals can rely on.
