Choose a Publishing Agreement

Understand the differences between different publishing options.

IEEE offers two agreement options to fit your needs:
  • The IEEE Copyright Form transfers the author’s copyright to IEEE and protects the article from possible abuses such as plagiarism
  • The Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY) allows authors to retain copyright; the article is available via universal free online access but is not protected from possible abuses such as plagiarism
Note that CC BY is only available when publishing open access.
