Notes about Paper Content, Indexing

How does IEEE Copyright work?

  • IEEE will hold the copyright to your ITherm paper, and it will be placed in their IEEE Xplore online database. You should not have already presented/published the SAME paper, copyrighted by another entity.
  • You cannot present a paper and then decline to place the paper in IEEE Xplore; IEEE conferences require an executed Copyright form, and the placement of your paper in the IEEE's World Wide Web database.
  • IEEE gives very liberal reprint rights to the author. However, the paper should be changed/updated/restructured before it is copyrighted by a future entity (including the IEEE).
  • If you want to REPRINT the paper in a magazine, compendium, etc. then you may ask the IEEE Copyrights Manager for permission, which is usually granted. The Magazine will be asked to add a footnote indicating that the material is copyrighted by the IEEE and is used with permission. There is usually no cost involved.
  • IEEE may have an Open Access option in place during 2019. If so, then by paying the one-time charge, we can have your paper be freely downloadable from the Xplore system without any payment from the reader. Please inquire, if you wish to explore this option.

Where will ITHERM papers be indexed?

Papers which are accepted and presented at the conference will be placed into IEEE's Xplore/IEL database and indexed in INSPEC. This information is made available to Elsevier's EI index, and ISI/Thomson Reuters' SCI, SSCI and ISTP services, which may place your paper's metadata in their indices. In addition, the metadata and full text will be indexed by Google and Google Scholar, for wider access to research results.
