Author Tools

IEEE is committed to supporting authors and researchers with IEEE Author Tools including the IEEE Publication Recommender, IEEE Reference Preparation Assistant, LaTeX Analyzer, and more.

CSS authors now have an option to submit their research data to IEEE DataPort during the article submittal process and link the data to their submitted article. This supports research reproducibility and enables the author to store and manage their research data. If data is submitted and the article is published in Xplore, there will be a "Datasets Available" icon and a link to the dataset for Xplore readers. Contact if you have questions about submitting your data.

Please refer to the information on the IEEE DataPort repository, which enables free storage of Open Access datasets, as well as IEEE CodeOcean to store, run and share code over the cloud.
