Information for Authors
(Updated/Effective January 2015)

For Transactions and Journals:
Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts of Regular papers (papers which provide a complete disclosure of a technical premise), or
Comment Correspondences (brief items that provide comment on a
paper previously published in these TRANSACTIONS).
Submissions/resubmissions must be previously unpublished and may
not be under consideration elsewhere.
Every manuscript must:
i. provide a clear statement of the problem and what the contribution of the work is to the relevant research community;
ii. state why this contribution is significant (what impact it will
iii. provide citation of the published literature most closely related
to the manuscript; and
iv. state what is distinctive and new about the current manuscript
relative to these previously published works.
By submission of your manuscript to these TRANSACTIONS, all listed
authors have agreed to the authorship list and all the contents and confirm that the work is original and that figures, tables and other reported
results accurately reflect the experimental work. In addition, the authors all acknowledge that they 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. The corresponding author is responsible for obtaining consent from all co-authors and, if needed, from sponsors before submission.
In order to be considered for review, a paper must be within the scope
of the journal and represent a novel contribution. A paper is a candidate for an Immediate Rejection if it is of limited novelty, e.g. a
straightforward combination of theories and algorithms that are well
established and are repeated on a known scenario. Experimental contributions will be rejected without review if there is insufficient experimental data. These TRANSACTIONS are published in English. Papers
that have a large number of typographical and/or grammatical errors
will also be rejected without review.
In addition to presenting a novel contribution, acceptable manuscripts
must describe and cite related work in the field to put the contribution in
context. Do not give theoretical derivations or algorithm descriptions
that are easily found in the literature; merely cite the reference.
New and revised manuscripts should be prepared following the "Manuscript Submission" guidelines below, and submitted to the online manuscript system, ScholarOne Manuscripts. 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
Manuscript system.
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-column, single-spaced format using
a font size of 10 points or larger, having a margin of
at least 1 inch on all sides. Upload this version of the
manuscript as a PDF file "double.pdf" to the ScholarOneManuscripts site. Since many reviewers prefer a larger font,
you are strongly encouraged to also submit a single-column,
double-spaced version (11 point font or larger), which is
easy to create with the templates provided IEEE Author
Digital Toolbox ( Page
length restrictions will be determined by the double-column

version. 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 .PDF 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. EDICS (Not applicable to Journal of Selected Topics in Signal
Processing). All submissions must be classified by the author
with an EDICS (Editors' Information Classification Scheme)
selected from the list of EDICS published online at the at the
publication's EDICS webpage (*please see the list below).
Upon submission of a new manuscript, please choose the
EDICS categories that best suit your manuscript. Failure to
do so will likely result in a delay of the peer review process.
4. Additional Documents for Review. Please upload pdf versions of
all items in the reference list that are not publicly available,
such as unpublished (submitted) papers. Graphical abstracts
and supplemental materials intended to appear with the final
paper (see below) must also be uploaded for review at the
time of the initial submission for consideration in the review
process. 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. Supplemental Materials. IEEE Xplore can publish multimedia
files (audio, images, video), datasets, and software (e.g. Matlab
code) along with your paper. Alternatively, you can provide
the links to such files in a README file that appears on Xplore
along with your paper. For details, please see IEEE Author
Digital Toolbox under "Multimedia." To make your work
reproducible by others, these TRANSACTIONS encourages you
to submit all files that can recreate the figures in your paper.
6. 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.
7. 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.
Comment Correspondence. Comment Correspondences provide brief
comments on material previously published in these TRANSACTIONS.
These items may not exceed 2 pages in double-column, single spaced
format, using 9 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 "Manuscript Submission" above for instructions).
Authors may also submit manuscripts of overview articles, but
note that these include an additional white paper approval process [This does not apply to the Journal of Selected Topics in Signal
Processing. Please contact the Editor-in-Chief.]
