We are pleased to announce several significant changes aimed at improving the experience for our authors and further enhancing the impact of our journal. Firstly, we have removed the requirement for single-column paper submissions, making it easier for authors to prepare their manuscripts. Starting in 2025, we will transition from bimonthly volumes to a single annual volume, allowing articles to be published immediately after typesetting. This change will expedite the dissemination of research findings.

More importantly, we have reduced the initial review period from 60 days to 45 days to help minimize the backlog of submissions. Additionally, the review time for revised manuscripts has been shortened from 45 days to 30 days. These adjustments are intended to streamline the publication process and reduce the time authors spend in the review pipeline.

With these changes, we aim to provide a better author experience and continue our strong growth trend—having tripled the number of submissions over the past three years. We also expect these improvements to contribute to an increased impact in the years to come. One of our authors recently expressed gratitude "On behalf of the coauthors, I wanted to send this brief thank-you message for handling our submission in a most diligent, professional, and fast manner. I can see better now that it is not accidental that the impact factor of IEEE TAES increased from 4.4 last year to 5.1 this year, while the impact factors of most IEEE periodicals decreased in the same period." This feedback reflects the positive outcomes of our ongoing efforts to enhance the publication process and the quality of our journal.
