Content Gazette - October 2016 - 39

Manuscript Length. For the initial submission of a regular paper, the
manuscript may not exceed 13 double-column pages (10 point font), including title; names of authors and their complete contact information;
abstract; text; all images, figures and tables, appendices and proofs; and
all references. Supplemental materials and graphical abstracts are not
included in the page count. For regular papers, the revised manuscript
may not exceed 16 double-column pages (10 point font), including
title; names of authors and their complete contact information; abstract;
text; all images, figures and tables, appendices and proofs; and all
references. For Overview Papers, the maximum length is double that
for regular submissions at each stage (please reference http://www. for more
Note that any paper in excess of 10 pages will be subject to mandatory
overlength page charges. 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.
Note: Papers submitted to the TRANSACTIONS ON MULTIMEDIA in excess of 8 pages will be subject to mandatory overlength page charges.
Exceptions to manuscript length requirements may, under extraordinary circumstances, be granted by the Editor-in-Chief. However, such
exception does not obviate your requirement to pay any and all overlength or additional charges that attach to the manuscript.
Resubmission of Previously Rejected Manuscripts. Authors of manuscripts rejected from any journal are allowed to resubmit their manuscripts only once. At the time of submission, you will be asked whether
your manuscript is a new submission or a resubmission of an earlier
rejected manuscript. If it is a resubmission of a manuscript previously
rejected by any journal, you are expected to submit supporting documents identifying the previous submission and detailing how your new
version addresses all of the reviewers' comments. Papers that do not
disclose connection to a previously rejected paper or that do not provide documentation as to changes made may be immediately rejected.
Author Misconduct. Author misconduct includes plagiarism,
self-plagiarism, and research misconduct, including falsification or
misrepresentation of results. All forms of misconduct are unacceptable
and may result in sanctions and/or other corrective actions. 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 author's previously published work that
also involves other authors. Self-plagiarism involves the verbatim
copying or reuse of an authors own prior work without appropriate
citation, including 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. For more information on the definitions, investigation process, and corrective actions related to author misconduct,
see the Signal Processing Society Policies and Procedures Manual,
Section 6.1. Author misconduct may also be
actionable by the IEEE under the rules of Member Conduct.
Extensions of the Author's Prior 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 their related prior work;
the papers cannot be identical; and the journal publication must include
substantively novel aspects such as new experimental results and analysis or added theoretical work. The journal publication should clearly
specify how the journal paper offers novel contributions when citing
the prior work. Limited overlap with prior journal publications with a
common author is allowed only if it is necessary for the readability of
the paper, and the prior work must be cited as the primary source.
Submission Format. Authors are required to prepare manuscripts
employing the on-line style files developed by IEEE, which include
guidelines for abbreviations, mathematics, and graphics. All manuscripts accepted for publication will require the authors to make final
submission employing these style files. The style files are available on
the web at the IEEE Author Digital Toolbox under "Template for all
TRANSACTIONS." (LaTeX and MS Word). Please note the following
requirements about the abstract:
* The abstract must be a concise yet comprehensive reflection of
what is in your article.
* The abstract must be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, displayed equations, or references.

* The abstract must be between 150-250 words.
* The abstract should include a few keywords or phrases, as this
will help readers to find it. Avoid over-repetition of such phrases
as this can result in a page being rejected by search engines.
In addition to written abstracts, papers may include a graphical
abstract; see
authors/authors_journals.html. for options and format requirements.
IEEE supports the publication of author names in the native language alongside the English versions of the names in the author list
of an article. For more information, see "Author names in native languages"
authors/auth_names_native_lang.pdf) on the IEEE Author Digital
Toolbox page.
Open Access. The publication is a hybrid journal, allowing either
Traditional manuscript submission or Open Access (author-pays OA)
manuscript submission. Upon submission, if you choose to have your
manuscript be an Open Access article, you commit to pay the discounted $1,750 OA fee if your manuscript is accepted for publication
in order to enable unrestricted public access. Any other application
charges (such as overlength page charge and/or charge for the use of
color in the print format) will be billed separately once the manuscript
formatting is complete but prior to the publication. If you would like
your manuscript to be a Traditional submission, your article will be
available to qualified subscribers and purchasers via IEEE Xplore. No
OA payment is required for Traditional submission.
Page Charges.
Voluntary Page Charges. Upon acceptance of a manuscript for publication, the author(s) or his/her/their company or institution will be asked
to pay a charge of $110 per page to cover part of the cost of publication
of the first ten pages that comprise the standard length (two pages, in
the case of Correspondences).
Mandatory Page Charges The author(s) or his/her/their company or
institution will be billed $220 per each page in excess of the first ten
published pages for regular papers and six published pages for correspondence items. (**NOTE: Papers accepted to IEEE TRANSACTIONS
ON MULTIMEDIA in excess of 8 pages will be subject to mandatory
overlength page charges.) These are mandatory page charges and the
author(s) will be held responsible for them. They are not negotiable or
voluntary. The author(s) signifies his willingness to pay these charges
simply by submitting his/her/their manuscript to the TRANSACTIONS.
The Publisher holds the right to withhold publication under any circumstance, as well as publication of the current or future submissions of
authors who have outstanding mandatory page charge debt. No mandatory overlength page charges will be applied to overview articles in the
Society's journals.
Color Charges. Color figures which appear in color only in the electronic (Xplore) version can be used free of charge. In this case, the
figure will be printed in the hardcopy version in grayscale, and the
author is responsible that the corresponding grayscale figure is intelligible. Color reproduction charges for print are the responsibility of
the author. Details of the associated charges can be found on the IEEE
Publications page.
Payment of fees on color reproduction is not negotiable or voluntary, and the author's agreement to publish the manuscript in these
TRANSACTIONS is considered acceptance of this requirement.
