Huawei barring by science publisher sparks China outcry

China Computer Federation suspends partnership with IEEE in the move's wake

NEW YORK -- The U.S.-based Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the world's largest engineering society, has barred Huawei Technologies-affiliated scientists from reviewing papers for its roughly 200 journals.

Employees of Huawei or anyone "interacting with" or "directly paid or otherwise sponsored" by the leading Chinese tech company may not participate in peer reviews or the editing process until an article has been accepted for publication, according to an IEEE internal statement obtained by the Nikkei Asian Review.
