Member Concerns Spur Changes to IEEE Peer-review Process
The push for change was led by members
Recently, the technical association IEEE announced changes to its peer-review journal system, after finding several published articles didn’t meet the organization’s standards. The push for change was led by members, said Michael Forster, IEEE’s managing director for publications
“It is the nature of IEEE that all of these activities and processes are overseen and managed by our volunteer leadership,” Forster said. “This is not always the role at associations. Typically, professional staff often carry out those roles.”
IEEE retracted 30 articles that were published in IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility over a three-year period and 19 articles from the 2018 International Conference on Computing and Network Communications due to violations of its peer-review process policies.
