Information for Authors
(Updated March 2012)

The IEEE TRANSACTIONS are published monthly covering advances in the
theory and application of signal processing. The scope is reflected in the
EDICS: the Editor's Information and Classification Scheme. Please consider
the journal with the most appropriate scope for your submission.
Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts of Regular papers (papers
which provide a complete disclosure of a technical premise), or Correspondences (brief items that describe a use for or magnify the meaning of a single
technical point, or provide comment on a paper previously published in the
TRANSACTIONS). Submissions/resubmissions must be previously unpublished
and may not be under consideration elsewhere.
Every manuscript must (a) provide a clearly defined statement of the problem
being addressed, (b) state why it is important to solve the problem, and (c) give
an indication as to how the current solution fits into the history of the problem.
By submission/resubmission of your manuscript to this TRANSACTIONS, you
are acknowledging that you accept the rules established for publication of manuscripts, including agreement to pay all overlength page charges, color charges,
and any other charges and fees associated with publication of the manuscript.
Such charges are not negotiable and cannot be suspended.
New and revised manuscripts should be prepared following the "New Manuscript Submission" guidelines below, and submitted to the online manuscript
system ScholarOne Manuscripts. After acceptance, finalized manuscripts should
be prepared following the "Final Manuscript Submission Guidelines" below. Do
not send original submissions or revisions directly to the Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editors; they will access your manuscript electronically via the ScholarOne
Manuscripts system.
New Manuscript Submission. Please follow the next steps.
1. Account in ScholarOne Manuscripts. If necessary, create an account in the
on-line submission system ScholarOne Manuscripts. Please check first if
you already have an existing account which is based on your e-mail address and may have been created for you when you reviewed or authored
a previous paper.
2. Electronic Manuscript. Prepare a PDF file containing your manuscript in
double-spaced format (one full blank line between lines of type) using a
font size of 11 points or larger, having a margin of at least 1 inch on all
sides. For a regular paper, the manuscript may not exceed 30 double-spaced
pages, including title; names of authors and their complete contact information; abstract; text; all images, figures and tables; and all references.
Upload your manuscript as a PDF file "manuscript.pdf" to the ScholarOne
Manuscripts site, then proofread your submission, confirming that all figures and equations are visible in your document before you "SUBMIT"
your manuscript. Proofreading is critical; once you submit your manuscript, the manuscript cannot be changed in any way. You may also submit
your manuscript as a PostScript or MS Word file. The system has the capability of converting your files to PDF, however it is your responsibility
to confirm that the conversion is correct and there are no font or graphics
issues prior to completing the submission process.
3. Double-Column Version of Manuscript. You are required to also submit
a roughly formatted version of the manuscript in single-spaced, double
column IEEE format (10 points for a regular submission or 9 points for
a Correspondence) using the IEEE style files (it is allowed to let long
equations stick out). If accepted for publication, over length page charges
are levied beginning with the 11th published page of your manuscript.
You are, therefore, advised to be conservative in your submission. This
double-column version submitted will serve as a confirmation of the approximate publication length of the manuscript and gives an additional
confirmation of your understanding that over length page charges will be
paid when billed upon publication.
Upload this version of the manuscript as a PDF file "double.pdf" to the
ScholarOneManuscripts site.
4. Additional Material for Review. Please upload pdf versions of all items
in the reference list which are not publicly available, such as unpublished
(submitted) papers. Other materials for review such as supplementary tables and figures, audio fragments and QuickTime movies may be uploaded
as well. Reviewers will be able to view these files only if they have the appropriate software on their computers. Use short filenames without spaces
or special characters. When the upload of each file is completed, you will
be asked to provide a description of that file.
5. Submission. After uploading all files and proofreading them, submit your
manuscript by clicking "Submit." A confirmation of the successful submission will open on screen containing the manuscript tracking number and
will be followed with an e-mail confirmation to the corresponding and all
contributing authors. Once you click "Submit," your manuscript cannot be
changed in any way.

6. Copyright Form and Consent Form. By policy, IEEE owns the copyright
to the technical contributions it publishes on behalf of the interests of the
IEEE, its authors, and their employers; and to facilitate the appropriate
reuse of this material by others. To comply with the IEEE copyright policies, authors are required to sign and submit a completed "IEEE Copyright
and Consent Form" prior to publication by the IEEE.
The IEEE recommends authors to use an effective electronic copyright
form (eCF) tool within the ScholarOne Manuscripts system. You will be
redirected to the "IEEE Electronic Copyright Form" wizard at the end of
your original submission; please simply sign the eCF by typing your name
at the proper location and click on the "Submit" button.
Correspondence Items. Correspondence items are short disclosures with a
reduced scope or significance that typically describe a use for or magnify the
meaning of a single technical point, or provide brief comments on material
previously published in the TRANSACTIONS. These items may not exceed 12
pages in double-spaced format (3 pages for Comments), using 11 point type,
with margins of 1 inch minimum on all sides, and including: title, names and
contact information for authors, abstract, text, references, and an appropriate
number of illustrations and/or tables. Correspondence items are submitted in
the same way as regular manuscripts (see "New Manuscript Submission" above
for instructions).
Manuscript Length. Papers published on or after 1 January 2007 can now
be up to 10 pages, and any paper in excess of 10 pages will be subject to over
length page charges. The IEEE Signal Processing Society has determined
that the standard manuscript length shall be no more than 10 published pages
(double-column format, 10 point type) for a regular submission, or 6 published
pages (9 point type) for a Correspondence item, respectively. Manuscripts that
exceed these limits will incur mandatory over length page charges, as discussed
below. Since changes recommended as a result of peer review may require
additions to the manuscript, it is strongly recommended that you practice
economy in preparing original submissions.
Exceptions to the 30-page (regular paper) or 12-page (Correspondences)
manuscript length may, under extraordinary circumstances, be granted by the
Editor-in-Chief. However, such exception does not obviate your requirement to
pay any and all over length or additional charges that attach to the manuscript.
Resubmission of Previously Rejected Manuscripts. Authors of rejected
manuscripts are allowed to resubmit their manuscripts only once. The Signal
Processing Society strongly discourages resubmission of rejected manuscripts
more than once. At the time of submission, you will be asked whether you consider your manuscript to be a new submission or a resubmission of an earlier
rejected manuscript. If you choose to submit a new version of your manuscript,
you will be asked to submit supporting documents detailing how your new version addresses all of the reviewers' comments.
Full details of the resubmission process can be found in the Signal Processing
Society "Policy and Procedures Manual" at http://www.signalprocessingsociety.
org/about/governance/policy-procedure/. Also, please refer to the decision letter
and your Author Center on the on-line submission system.
Author Misconduct.
Author Misconduct Policy: Plagiarism includes copying someone else's work
without appropriate credit, using someone else's work without clear delineation
of citation, and the uncited reuse of an authors previously published work that
also involves other authors. Plagiarism is unacceptable.
Self-plagiarism involves the verbatim copying or reuse of an authors own
prior work without appropriate citation; it is also unacceptable. Self-plagiarism
includes duplicate submission of a single journal manuscript to two different
journals, and submission of two different journal manuscripts which overlap
substantially in language or technical contribution.
Authors may only submit original work that has not appeared elsewhere in a
journal publication, nor is under review for another journal publication. Limited
overlap with prior journal publications with a common author is allowed only
if it is necessary for the readability of the paper. If authors have used their own
previously published work as a basis for a new submission, they are required
to cite the previous work and very briefly indicate how the new submission offers substantively novel contributions beyond those of the previously published
work.
It is acceptable for conference papers to be used as the basis for a more fully
developed journal submission. Still, authors are required to cite related prior
work; the papers cannot be identical; and the journal publication must include
novel aspects.
Author Misconduct Procedures: The procedures that will be used by the
Signal Processing Society in the investigation of author misconduct allegations
are described in the IEEE SPS Policies and Procedures Manual.
