Online Submission Portal

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically via the IEEE Author Portal. To access the IEEE Author Portal, please log in with your IEEE Account, or register for a new account in case you don’t already have one. Please note that author login credentials on any other type of peer review system (e.g., ScholarOne) will not grant you access to the IEEE Author Portal.

Friendly suggestion on how to write your article

  • Authors should write their articles by making comparisons with a sufficient number of relevant papers (i.e. closely related to what is being proposed/discussed/analyzed) that are among the most recently published. In this way, authors should make the argument that there is novelty compared to the state of the art and thus hopefully convince the review panel about the merits of their submitted manuscripts.
  • Authors are requested to:
    • (i) clearly state what they think the novelty is;
    • (ii) in the case of Paper submissions, provide evidence that the novelty is not incremental;
    • (iii) add appropriate statements in the manuscript (such as in the Introduction section and/or other appropriate sections).
  • Authors should submit their manuscript as one comprehensive document, including all the figures, tables, and content. As an author you want to make reviewing your manuscript as simple as possible. You do not want the reviewers having to open a new file every time they want to see a figure. If you do not create a single reviewable document, the processing of your paper may be delayed.

Review process

The journal’s editorial procedure is founded on thorough and multilevel editorial assessment with the aim of providing authors with rigorous and timely feedback, as well as ensuring trust and reliability. Submitted manuscripts are peer-reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual. Each manuscript is reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-anonymous peer-review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Manuscripts are screened for plagiarism upon submission and before acceptance. Authors should allow approximately 12 weeks for the initial review cycle. An overview of the publishing process workflow is provided below.
