SAE Technical Papers

SAE Technical Papers (formerly known as written-only papers) provide authors with the opportunity to publish their original, topically relevant work outside a specific event’s production timeline. These papers are made available as soon as the submissions are received, reviewed, revised, and accepted for publication. Acceptance of papers through this track includes a double-blind peer-review process as well as the opportunity to publish for open access. The goal is to provide authors the flexibility to publish on their schedule along with a faster time to publication.

SAE International is now offering Open Access for technical papers for US $750 per article. For more information, click here.


SAE Technical Papers is currently looking to increase the number of Handling Editors. These are experts in their field who manage the paper review and publication decision process. If interested, please contact
