Impact Factor and Indexing

The IEEE Transactions on Technology and Society will be eligible for an impact factor in 2023, as it usually takes about three years for adjudication by relevant bodies. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the Transactions, the IEEE SSIT community anticipates it will achieve indexing in as many credible databases as possible. It also expects to reach out to its local communities to have the Transactions listed as “counting” towards promotion or national ranking schemes. Please reach out to the Editor-in-Chief for support to have the Transactions listed in authors’ respective localities, before it achieves an impact factor status.
