Open access content published in J-SAC is available to all readers free of charge on-line in IEEE Xplore. Currently, authors pay a discounted fee of $1950.00 for each paper they wish to publish as open access.
Authors may select open access for their J-SAC papers, when submitting their manuscripts for review or when submitting their accepted papers for publication. The EDAS journal management system, used by most J-SAC guest editors, will soon be enhanced to accommodate selection of the open access option for J-SAC submissions and billing authors for open access. For now, all authors requesting open access for their J-SAC submissions should contact the ComSoc production staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) to insure proper classification of their papers.
