IEEE Open Journal of Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control

In keeping with IEEE’s continued commitment to providing options to support the needs of all authors, IEEE is introducing an Open Journal for the UFFC Society.

We invite you to be among the first to have your article peer-reviewed and published in this new journal. This is an exciting opportunity for your research to benefit from the high visibility and interest the journal’s marketing launch will generate. Your work will also be exposed to 5 million unique monthly users of the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.

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 Omer Oralkan <omer.oralkan@ncsu.edu>, 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.

Scope

OJ-UFFC 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.

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.

Review Process

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): US$ 1,750

$1,750 article processing charge will be waived for manuscripts submitted until 12/31/2021.
