Transactions on AES

You are here

The IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems publishes articles bi-monthly with aerospace or related applications. The areas of interest are naturally quite wide, and include space, avionics, guidance & control, navigation, power conversion systems, command & control and, of course, radar. Aerospace ideas have wide applicability, hence other topics include intelligent & fault-tolerant systems, target tracking, multi-sensor systems, electro-optic and infrared sensing, sensor network management, large-scale systems and systems-of-systems, and even sonar.

It is expected that each manuscript be a novel contribution with strong scientific underpinning, clear development and good English. Manuscripts undergo a rigorous web-based peer-review process, with typical review cycles in the order of 60 days. Regular papers show a thorough development of an idea or topic, while correspondence items are somewhat shorter; the difference is in scope, rather than quality.

As of 1 March 2021, new manuscripts must be submitted via Manuscripts submitted before this date using will remain in the msubmit system. This includes revisions. The msubmit system will close once all current active submissions have reached a final decision.

Special Sections

The Transactions does not have Special Issues due to the bi-monthly publication cycle. However, occasionally Special Sections on a particular topic share an issue with the regular papers. For information about proposing a  Special Section, please see IEEE Transactions on AES Special Section: Procedures and Guidelines for Proposals.

Open Access

In accordance with IEEE policies regarding open access (OA) content, the AES Transactions has become a “hybrid” journal for submissions dated November 1st 2012 or later. This means that authors have the choice between the traditional publication model and an OA model. The former is the familiar procedure in which an accepted article is available on IEEEXplore to subscribers of that service. Under the OA model the author of an accepted manuscript chooses to pay a fee, such that the manuscript is posted on IEEEXplore and available, free, to all. IEEE’s open access article processing charge (APC) for all hybrid journals is $2195 USD. This figure is independent of manuscript type (regular, correspondence or letter).


All IEEE journals require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCID is a persistent unique identifier for researchers and functions similarly to an article’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI). ORCIDs enable accurate attribution and improved discoverability of an author’s published work. The author will need a registered ORCID in order to submit a manuscript or review a proof in this journal.
