The overarching aim of the “Supporting Underrepresented Nations” initiative is to improve IEEE Sensor Council engagement with IEEE members in the technical areas and professions related to sensors who are resident in Africa and Latin America. This initiative will provide the resources (financial, educational and mentoring) to IEEE members in these regions to actively partake in IEEE Sensor Council activities.
Authors from low-income countries are already eligible for waivers and discounts on open access article processing charges in fully open access journals. As the IEEE Sensors Journal and IEEE Sensors Letters follow a hybrid model, this support is not available for these journals.
Authors from under-represented nations who have a paper accepted for publication in IEEE Sensors Journal and IEEE Sensors Letters can apply for a grant to support publishing their research as Open Access.
4 grants will be available each year covering the Open Access publishing fee. (Sensors Journal: 2 x $ 2195; Sensors Letters: 2 x $1850).
Upon approval of the request, the Editor in Chief of IEEE Sensors Journal or IEEE Sensors Letters will be asked to waive the article processing charges, without the need of transferring any money to the authors.
