Submission Information: Information for Authors

 

All manuscripts must be submitted through Manuscript Central at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/t-iv.  If needed, contact the editorial office at cozguner@oztinc.com with any questions or concerns.

English language editing services can help refine the language of your article and reduce the risk of rejection without review.  IEEE authors are eligible for a 10% discount at American Journal Experts; visit http://www.aje.com/go/ieee/ to learn more. Please note these services are fee-based and do not guarantee acceptance.

 

Before submitting a manuscript, authors must:

  • Format the paper using IEEE style of double column, single spaced. Templates are available at http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/authors/transjnl/index.html.

  • Include a short biography for all authors at the end of the paper (only for Regular and Survey papers).

  • Create an account for the submission site if they do not already possess one.

 

Authors can choose among 4 kinds of papers, each with its suggested length in IEEE style:

  • Regular Papers: 10 pages

  • Short Papers: 6 pages

  • Practitioner Papers: 6 pages

  • Survey Papers: 18 pages

 

An author may submit papers that exceeds the suggested length but after the final acceptance, provided they pay an overlength charge of $175.00 (US dollars) for each extra page. Corresponding authors from low-income countries are eligible for waived or reduced open access APCs.

Peer Review

The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual (sections 8.2.1.C & 8.2.2.A). 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. 

 

Abstract Description and Specifications

For an abstract to be effective when displayed in IEEE Xplore® as well as through indexing services such as Compendex, INSPEC, Medline, ProQuest, and Web of Science, it must be concisely yet comprehensively reflect the article it describes. In particular, the abstract must be:

  • Contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, or references. It should be a microcosm of the full article.

  • Between 150-250 words.

  • Written as one paragraph and should not contain displayed mathematical equations or tabular material.

  • Include three or four different keywords or phrases. However over-repetition of such phrases can result in a page being rejected by search engines.

  • Grammatically correct.

Submitting Final Files: Information for authors of accepted papers

 

Papers accepted for publication will be published both electronically on IEEE Xplore web site and in the printed version of the Transactions.

 

Authors must submit final files electronically using the submission web site http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/t-its.All requested items must be compressed in a ZIP file before uploading them on the submission web site.

 

Requested items:

  1. A PDF version of the paper and an identical source version using either LaTeX or MSWord. Paper must be formatted using IEEE style (double column, single spaced) whose template is available at http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/authors/transjnl/index.html.

  2. Original versions of figures and tables (high definition) in separate files only if they aren’t embedded in the source paper file (accepted formats: PS, EPS, PDF, PNG, TIFF, DOC, PPT, XLS).

  3. Bio-sketches (in IEEE format) and high-resolutions photos of each of the authors (not required for Short and Practitioner Papers); bio-sketches can be included in the source file or alternatively saved in separate files.

 

Few weeks after the submission of the final files, the contact author will be contacted by the publishing office to check the proofs of the paper. Authors will have 48 authors to return eventual corrections to the proofs.

 

Once proofs are validated, the paper will be published in the “early papers” section of IEEE Xplore web site in few days and later in the first available printed issue.

 

If after the proofs, paper length exceeds the suggested values (see Submit a Paper section), authors will be asked to pay an extra page charge of 175 US dollar for each extra page.

 

Author Names in Native Languages

IEEE supports the publication of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) author names in the native language alongside the English versions of the names in the author list of an article. For more information, please visit the IEEE Author Digital Tool Box at the following URL: http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/auth_names_native_lang.pdf

 

Color Printing

If a paper includes color figures, authors can decide to publish their paper in color (additional charges) or in gray tone.

Papers printed in gray tone are published electronically in color on IEEE Xplore if color illustrations are included.

 

IEEE Copyright

IEEE policy requires that prior to publication all authors must transfer the copyright for their paper to the IEEE via the submission web site when submitting the final files.
