Call For Papers

The IEEE Journal of Radio Frequency Identification (JRFID) publishes peer-reviewed manuscripts addressing various aspects of RFID circuits, systems, standards, and applications. RFID involves multidisciplinary areas of research and development, encompassing a broad spectrum of science and engineering expertise. This call for papers intends to solicit contributions in all areas pertinent to RFID, including but not limited to:

  • Antenna and design
  • Tags and Readers
  • Circuits and systems
  • Protocols and networks
  • Signal propagation and processing
  • Energy Harvesting
  • Data and Power transfer
  • Modulation schemes
  • Modeling, simulation, implementation
  • RFID sensors
  • Near field communications
  • Smart living, smart cities and IoT
  • RFID design and manufacturing processes
  • RFID applications in health care, finance, transportation, security, food science, and inventory management
  • RFID tracking of information, location, asset, energy, and people


Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished work on RFID. We consider both brief papers (3~5 pages) and regular-length articles. JRFID is a volume only journal. The accepted papers are published on-line on IEEE Xplore: IEEE Journal of Radio Frequency Identification with 2-3 days and can be fully referenced at that point using the digital object identifier (DOI).

For paper submissions, please send your papers using manuscript central. The template can be found on IEEE Article Templates – IEEE Author Center Journals. Use the interactive IEEE Template Selector to find the JRFID template by following a few easy prompts and download your template.

The average turn-around time (from submission to first decision) is currently about 30 days.

The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual (https://pspb.ieee.org/images/files/files/opsmanual.pdf). Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.

JRFID allows for two revision cycles. Should your manuscript require more than two revisions, it may be rejected, but you are welcome to resubmit in case you can fully address all reviewer concerns.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Editor-in-Chief: George Xiao.

The IEEE Council on RFID (CRFID) that comprises of the following 15 IEEE member societies sponsors the Journal.
