Author Guidelines

Guidelines for manuscript is adopted to the IEEE Templates for Transactions

Templates for the manuscript:

- MS Word

- LaTeX

NOTE: Submissions that are not prepared according to the template (page margins, titles, figures, numbering, tables, references), will not be considered for reviewing.

All papers must be written in English. Regular papers should have 8-12 pages. Introductory discussion should be kept at a minimum, and material published elsewhere should be referenced rather than reproduced or paraphrased. Authors should strive for maximum clarity of expression, bearing in mind that the purpose of publication is the dissemination of technical knowledge and that an excessively complex or poorly written presentation can only obscure the significance of the work described.

In the list of references, DOI (if available) has to be included in each reference.

Care should be taken in the organization of the paper, such that a logical and consistent progression of thought is evident. It is strongly suggested that theorems, derivations, calculations, and other elements of a paper which are not essential to the continuity of the text be placed in Appendices.

If a manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be asked to supply the final copy and copyright form electronically.
