Open Access Telecommunications Journals

A list of Open Access Telecommunications journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Telecommunications is electronic transmission of information between locations

Open Access journals publish research articles that are free to to view and download. The main difference between articles in open access journals and those in closed journals is the business model. Both types of articles have to undergo the same peer review process.

Hopefully this list of Telecommunications Open Access journals will make it easier for you to decide where to publish your Telecommunications manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Telecommunications journals as well as new journals. This should give you a better idea on where you should publish. Instead of displaying the most commonly known Telecommunications journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Telecommunications journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Telecommunications venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Telecommunications journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access is an international movement that aims to provide free and open online access to academic information, such as publications and data
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
If a journal has a relevance of “100”, that means that the journal is fully related to the concept it is listed under. If, on the other hand, a journal has a relevance of “0”, that means that the journal doesn’t have any relation to the topic it is listed under. So Nutrition might have a low relevance when included in Open Computer Science Journals
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations represent the times that works have cited papers under this journal. In our case, we obtain this data from OpenAlex, an open catalog of scholarly papers. It's hard to say how accurate it is but it can give you a general idea on how prestigious the journal is. The more work that have cited it, the better.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or journal article, you can type it in the name, title, or DOI in the search box above to see more results. If you want to see a similar list to this one, take a look on
How can I publish my paper on
Our focus at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
Article Processing Charges (APCs) are charged to authors of scholarly articles during the publication process. APCs are used by open access journals.
What are the different Open Access types?
The most common types are “Green Open Access”, “Gold Open Access” and “Hybrid Open Access”.
