In partnership with Wiley, the IET have taken the decision to convert IET Optoelectronics 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 Optoelectronics 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 October 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.

IET Optoelectronics publishes state of the art research papers in the field of optoelectronics and photonics. The topics that are covered by the journal include optical and optoelectronic materials, nanophotonics, metamaterials and photonic crystals, light sources (e.g. LEDs, lasers and devices for lighting), optical modulation and multiplexing, optical fibres, cables and connectors, optical amplifiers, photodetectors and optical receivers, photonic integrated circuits, photonic systems, optical signal processing and holography and displays.

Most of the papers published describe original research from universities and industrial and government laboratories. However correspondence suggesting review papers and tutorials is welcomed, as are suggestions for special issues.


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