Additional Information

TLT is published online using a delayed, open-access policy under which paying subscribers and per-article purchasers have access to newly published content, and then 12 months after the publication of each issue, all readers will have access to the content, free of charge. Alternatively, immediate open access is available at acceptance with payment. For further details, see the IEEE's Open Access Publishing Options.

TLT publishes archival research papers and critical survey papers. A paper must either describe original research or offer a critical review of the state of the art in a particular area. Papers concerned with evaluation of technology are only appropriate if the technology itself is novel or if significant technical insights are provided. Please be sure to visit the TLT taxonomy list.


According to the 2016 Journal Citation Report, TLT has an impact factor of 2.267.

For papers submitted in 2016, TLT's average time to first decision was 61 days. The average time to first decision for papers submitted in 2015 was 59 days. The acceptance rate was 14.6% for papers submitted in 2016 and 13.1% for papers submitted in 2015.
