Author Guidelines for Accepted Papers
Please review the Electronic Posting Policy and Self-Plagiarism Policy. Manuscripts submitted for publication in IEEE Internet of Things Magazine should be original work submitted exclusively to the magazine, not previously published, and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
These guidelines are for accepted papers only after they have been through the review process and accepted by the Editor-in-Chief. If you are submitting an paper for review and possible acceptance, please visit the Paper Submission Guidelines page. The production process is separate from the review process and requires a full set of materials to be sent directly to the production team. The Publications Staff does not have access to materials submitted to Manuscript Central and cannot retrieve files.
Please make sure you have referred to The IEEE Communications Society Publications Department Style Guide before submitting your paper. When your page proofs are sent to you, remember to check them carefully for any discrepancies that might have occurred in the original transfer process. This is especially true if symbols (mathematical, Greek, etc.) and unusual fonts were used in the paper.
- Final Manuscripts Due: The 15th of the month, 2.5 months prior to publication date. For example, all final materials for an paper in the March issue are due by December 15th.
- Page Proofs Sent to Contact Author: 3 weeks prior to issue date.
- Page Proofs Back to Publications Department: 2 weeks prior to issue date.
Submission of Materials to Publications Staff
IEEE Internet of Things Magazine does not use style sheets or templates for submission of materials. If you are familiar with the submission of materials for a journal, such as IEEE JSAC, please be aware that these guidelines are different. Read them carefully and do not make assumptions on what we need based on your prior experience with journal publication.
All final electronic materials should be emailed to the Publications Department and must include the following:
|An editable electronic file (Microsoft Word or LaTex)|
|A .PDF file of the manuscript|
|Separated figure files (PDF and Hi-Res Digital Images)|
|A completed and signed copyright form|
|Topic title and issue month for which you are submitting your materials|
|Contact information for the corresponding author|
IEEE assumes that material submitted to its publications is properly available for general dissemination to the readership of those publications. It is the responsibility of the authors, not IEEE, to determine whether disclosure of their material requires the prior consent of other parties and, if so, to obtain it.
Statements and opinions given in works published by the IEEE are the expressions of contributors. Responsibility for content of published papers rests with the authors, not the IEEE.
It is the policy of the IEEE to own the copyright to technical contributions it publishes on behalf of the interests of the IEEE and its authors and their employers, and to facilitate the appropriate reuse of this material by others. To comply with IEEE policy under the U.S. Copyright Law, authors are required to sign an IEEE Copyright Form before publication. This form returns to authors and their employers, full rights to reuse their material for their own purposes.
The U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulation page should be viewed by authors who are submitting military- or defense-related material, are U.S. nationals (including green card holders); work for a U.S.-based organization, regardless of where they are physically located; or work at a U.S. location of a non-U.S.-based organization. All authors must ensure that they are in compliance with ITAR and the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control regulation as outlined in the above page. If you have any questions on these two regulations, please contact the email address listed on that page. For information on IEEE copyright policy, permission to reuse IEEE copyrighted material, electronic preprints, or posting your paper on your own server, please visit the IEEE Intellectual Property Rights page.
In addition to the IEEE policies, pre-publication author misconduct, such as double-submission or plagiarism, will result in rejection of the manuscript(s), and a minimum 6 month ban on submissions to fully owned ComSoc publications by the author(s).
Information on ordering reprints of your paper can be found by emailing the IEEE Reprints Department.
