Submission to Publication for IEEE Transactions on UFFC is ever becoming more efficient
(Contributed by Steven Freear)

If you submit a paper today to IEEE UFFC Transactions, how long before it will be published in IEEE Xplore? Streamlining of the review and publication processes have led to further reductions in the submission to publication delay. Median submission to publication time is now 16.9 weeks (3.3 weeks less than in the 4th quarter of 2015)! For friendly comparison - IEEE-wide, during the 1st quarter of 2016, the median submission to publication delay was 28.8 weeks. Read More
