Content Gazette - November 2014 - 35

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.
Author Misconduct Sanctions: The IEEE Signal Processing Society will apply the
following sanctions in any case of plagiarism, or in cases of self-plagiarism that involve
an overlap of more than 25% with another journal manuscript:
1) immediate rejection of the manuscript in question;
2) immediate withdrawal of all other submitted manuscripts by any of the authors,
submitted to any of the Society's publications (journals, conferences, workshops),
except for manuscripts that also involve innocent co-authors; immediate withdrawal of all other submitted manuscripts by any of the authors, submitted to
any of the Society's publications (journals, conferences, workshops), except for
manuscripts that also involve innocent co-authors;
3) prohibition against each of the authors for any new submissions, either individually,
in combination with the authors of the plagiarizing manuscript, or in combination
with new co-authors, to all of the Society's publications (journals, conferences,
workshops). The prohibition shall continue for one year from notice of suspension.
Further, plagiarism and self-plagiarism may also be actionable by the IEEE under the
rules of Member Conduct.
Submission Format.
Authors are encouraged to prepare manuscripts employing the on-line style les
developed by IEEE. All manuscripts accepted for publication will require the authors
to make nal submission employing these style les. The style les are available on the
web at under "Template for all TRANSACTIONS." (LaTeX and MS Word).
Authors using LaTeX: the two PDF versions of the manuscript needed for
submission can both be produced by the IEEEtran.cls style le. A double-spaced
document is generated by including \documentclass[11pt,draftcls,onecolumn]
{IEEEtran} as the rst line of the manuscript source le, and a single-spaced
double-column document for estimating the publication page charges via
\documentclass[10pt,twocolumn,twoside]{IEEEtran} for a regular submission, or
\documentclass[9pt,twocolumn,twoside]{IEEEtran} for a Correspondence item.
* Title page and abstract: The rst page of the manuscript shall contain the title,
names and contact information for all authors (full mailing address, institutional
afliations, phone, fax, and e-mail), the abstract, and the EDICS. An asterisk *
should be placed next to the name of the Corresponding Author who will serve
as the main point of contact for the manuscript during the review and publication
An abstract must be a well-written stand-alone paragraph 150-250 words long,
with no displayed equations, footnotes, references or tabular material. The abstract
should indicate the scope of the paper and summarize the author's conclusions,
making it a useful tool for information retrieval. Visit for specications and
* EDICS: All submissions must be classied by the author with an EDICS (Editors' Information Classication Scheme) selected from the list of EDICS published online at
* NOTE: EDICS are necessary to begin the peer review process. 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.
* The EDICS category should appear on the rst page-i.e., the title and abstract
page-of the manuscript.
* Illustrations and tables: Each gure and table should have a caption that is intelligible without requiring reference to the text. Illustrations/tables may be worked
into the text of a newly-submitted manuscript, or placed at the end of the manuscript. (However, for the nal submission, illustrations/tables must be submitted
separately and not interwoven with the text.)
Illustrations in color may be used but, unless the nal publishing will be in color,
the author is responsible that the corresponding grayscale gure is understandable.
In preparing your illustrations, note that in the printing process, most illustrations
are reduced to single-column width to conserve space. This may result in as much
as a 4:1 reduction from the original. Therefore, make sure that all words are in a
type size that will reduce to a minimum of 9 points or 3/16 inch high in the printed
version. Only the major grid lines on graphs should be indicated.
* Abbreviations: This TRANSACTIONS follows the practices of the IEEE on
units and abbreviations, as outlined in the Institute's published standards. See
transjnl/auinfo07.pdf for details.
* Mathematics: All mathematical expressions must be legible. Do not give derivations that are easily found in the literature; merely cite the reference.
Final Manuscript Submission Guidelines.
Upon formal acceptance of a manuscript for publication, instructions for providing the
nal materials required for publication will be sent to the Corresponding Author. Finalized
manuscripts should be prepared in LaTeX or MS Word, and are required to use the
style les established by IEEE, available at

Instructions for preparing les for electronic submission are as follows:
* For regular papers, the nal 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, gures and tables, appendices and proofs; and
all references. Without expressed approval from the Editor-in-Chief, papers that
exceed 16 pages in length will not publish.
* Files must be self-contained; that is, there can be no pointers to your system setup.
* Include a header to identify the name of the TRANSACTIONS, the name of the author,
and the software used to format the manuscript.
* Do not import graphics les into the text le of your nalized manuscript (although
this is acceptable for your initial submission). If submitting on disk, use a separate
disk for graphics les.
* Do not create special macros.
* Do not send PostScript les of the text.
* File names should be lower case.
* Graphics les should be separate from the text, and not contain the caption text,
but include callouts like "(a)," "(b)."
* Graphics le names should be lower case and named g1.eps, g2.tif, etc.
* Supported graphics types are EPS, PS, TIFF, or graphics created using Word, Powerpoint, Excel or PDF. Not acceptable is GIF, JPEG, WMF, PNG, BMP or any other
format (JPEG is accepted for author photographs only). The provided resolution
needs to be at least 600 dpi (400 dpi for color).
* Please indicate explicitly if certain illustrations should be printed in color; note that
this will be at the expense of the author. Without other indications, color graphics
will appear in color in the online version, but will be converted to grayscale in the
print version.
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,
please visit the IEEE Author Digital Tool Box at the following URL:
Additional instructions for preparing, verifying the quality, and submitting graphics
and multimedia les are available via
Open Access.
This publication is a hybrid journal, allowing either Traditional manuscript submission
or Open Access(author-paysOA) manuscriptsubmission. Uponsubmission, ifyou 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 over-length 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 qualied 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 rst ten pages that comprise the standard length (six pages, in the case of Technical Correspondences until their publication
will be discontinued).
Mandatory Page Charges. The author(s) or his/her/their company or institution will
be billed $220 per each page in excess of the rst ten published pages for regular papers
and six published pages for technical correspondence until their publication will be discontinued. These are mandatory page charges and the author(s) will be held responsible
for them. They are not negotiable or voluntary. The author(s) signies 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.
Color Charges. Color gures which appear in color only in the electronic (Xplore)
version can be used free of charge. In this case, the gure will be printed in the hardcopy
version in grayscale, and the author is responsible that the corresponding grayscale gure
is intelligible. Color reproduction in print is expensive, and all charges for color are the
responsibility of the author. The estimated costs are as follows. There will be a charge
of $62.50 for each gure; this charge may be subject to change without notication. In
addition, there are printing preparation charges which may be estimated as follows: color
reproductions on four or fewer pages of the manuscript: a total of approximately $1045;
color reproductions on ve pages through eight pages: a total of approximately $2090;
color reproductions on nine through 12 pages: a total of approximately $3135, and so on.
Payment of fees on color reproduction is not negotiable or voluntary, and the author's
agreement to publish the manuscript in the TRANSACTIONS is considered acceptance of
this requirement.
