In partnership with Wiley, the IET have taken the decision to convert IET Biometrics from a library/subscriber pays model to an author-pays Open Access (OA) model effective from the 2021 volume, which comes into effect for all new submissions to the journal from now.

Whilst transitioning to OA as well as collaborating with a new publishing partner, IET Biometrics will also be migrating to a new electronic peer-review management system , using ScholarOne. The ScholarOne site is now open for all new submissions. Please note that any papers that have been submitted in the journal prior to 1st September 2020 will continue to run in ReView.

COVID-19: A Message from the IET Journals Team We would like to reassure all of our valued authors, reviewers and editors that our journals are continuing to run as usual but, given the current situation, we can offer flexibility on your deadlines if you should need it. Our systems are set up to work to fixed timescales and may issue automatic reminder emails – please do not hesitate to get in contact with us at [email protected] if you need an extension or to discuss options. We recognise the tremendous contribution that you all make to the IET journals and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.

The field of biometric recognition - automated recognition of individuals based on their behavioural and biological characteristics - has now reached a level of maturity where viable practical applications are both possible and increasingly available. The biometrics field is characterised especially by its interdisciplinarity since, while focused primarily around a strong technological base, effective system design and implementation often requires a broad range of skills encompassing, for example, human factors, data security and database technologies, psychological and physiological awareness, and so on. Also, the technology focus itself embraces diversity, since the engineering of effective biometric systems requires integration of image analysis, pattern recognition, sensor technology, database engineering, security design and many other strands of understanding.


The IET has now partnered with Publons to give you official recognition for your contribution to peer review. Read more...
