The IPCSD organizes the publication of scholarly articles in the publications sponsored by the IAS.  This includes broadcasting publication opportunities, and organizing the technical review of the proposed entries.  Many members of the IPCSD technical committees are reviewers or Associate Editors of one or another of the IAS publications.

Papers submitted to the IAS Transactions are required to have been presented at a conference first (a list of IAS conferences is shown here). This policy provides the authors and the readership an additional level of review, whereby the input of conference attendees can be included in the paper before Transactions publication.  However, this presentation-first policy does not apply to any other IAS publication.  Since December 2016, as a consequence of a new IEEE policy, IAS does require a paper to be modified after a conference presentation before it is submitted for publication in any of IAS’ sponsored journals and magazines.

IAM 2013 front coverIAS publications as well as conference proceedings are free to IAS members (join IAS – Only $20/year, $10 for students), electronically on IEEE Xplore.  Print version are also available for a modest annual fee.
