IEEE Computer Society Launches Open-Access Journal

From IEEE:

The IEEE Computer Society has launched a new open-access journal on emerging topics in computing.

IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) publishes papers on emerging aspects of computer science, computer engineering, information technology, software, and applications not currently covered by other IEEE transactions. The online-only journal will publish preprints online before the first issue appears in July 2013.

TETC is one of several IEEE open-access journals being developed in response to the academic community’s calls for articles to be freely available to the public. With open access, readers can download articles without paying subscription fees. Instead, authors pay a fee to publish their articles. The open-access author fee will be $1,350 per article.
