The IEEE Open Journal of Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control covers theory, technology, materials, and applications relating to the generation, transmission, and detection of ultrasonic waves and related phenomena; medical ultrasound, and associated technologies; ferroelectric, piezoelectric, and piezomagnetic materials; frequency generation and control, timing, and time coordination and distribution. This interest ranges from fundamental studies to the design and/or applications of devices, sensors, systems, and manufacturing technologies within the general scope defined above.
OJ-UFFC will draw on the expert technical community to continue IEEE’s commitment to publishing the most highly-cited content. The editor-in-chief is the distinguished Ömer Oralkan, North Carolina State University. Our goal is to publish quickly—the rapid peer review process is targeting a publication time frame of 10 weeks for most accepted papers. This journal is fully open and compliant with funder mandates, including Plan S.
Author Information and Instructions
UFFC Society is committed to supporting authors and researchers with IEEE Author Tools including the IEEE Publication Recommender, IEEE Graphics Analyzer, LaTeX Analyzer and more. Discover the tools available at the IEEE Author Center.
The articles in this journal are peer-reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual. Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer-review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.
Article Processing Charge (APC): $0 through 2023 / $ 1,750 beginning 1 January 2024
The article processing charge will be waived for manuscripts submitted until 31 December 2023.

The UFFC Society is regarded as a trusted and unbiased source of technical information for dialog and collaboration to advance technology within the computing community. The UFFC Society is led by researchers and technology professionals who are at the center of respected Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control communities where readers and authors already come together.
Open Access allows authors to publish in respected high-quality traditional journals while also complying with new open-access policies. IEEE makes the transition clear for authors by providing three options:
- Hybrid Journals
- Fully Open Access Topical Journals
- Multidisciplinary Open Access Journal (IEEE Access)
Supported by author publication fees, all of our open access journals will utilize the same high standard of peer review for all content submitted. In addition, IEEE’s open access multidisciplinary journal (IEEE Access) and fully open access topical journals will draw on technical communities for peer reviewers, to apply the same care as for any new IEEE journal and ensure the best possible papers are being published. Additionally, publishing within the IEEE Open Access program allows for:
- Multimedia integration (video abstracts, etc.);
- Each published article is accompanied by usage and citation data;
- The advantage of being published by IEEE, whose journals are trusted, respected, and rank among the most highly cited;
- Vast global reach to millions who search IEEE Xplore, attend conferences and conduct research in all technology sectors;
- All published articles will be maintained in the IEEE archive with free access to all.
