Any deviation from the following rules will cause inevitably some delay in publication.

General Instructions:

General Manuscript Format

The manuscript is to be printed on one side of the page on 216x279mm paper (US standard format) or A4 paper. It must be formatted in IEEE two column format using the IEEE style files. The maximum length of each manuscript is 12 pages including references, figures, tables, equations and biographies. As mentioned in the "Information for Authors" on the back cover of each journal issue, your manuscript will be subject to overlength page charges if the published version exceeds nine pages ($175 per page). Detailed information on these charges will accompany the galley proofs sent to you prior to publication.

The final version of your manuscript must include the following:


Galley Proofs

Galley proofs of your manuscript will arrive via email (unless specified otherwise) at the address of the corresponding author as written in the TCAS-I database. If galley proofs are to be sent to someone other than the corresponding Author, that must be stated when the final. After receiving the galley proofs you are to address all questions regarding the publication of your paper to the IEEE Publications Department at IEEE Publishing Services:

You are to return your galley proofs to the New Jersey office within 72 hours via email, fax or rush courier. Therefore, if you anticipate any lengthy absence within the next three months, it is your responsibility (as corresponding Author) to make alternate arrangements (i.e., offering a co-author's name as a contact for timely return of the galley proofs). Also, to circumvent possible typesetting errors, all changes and corrections are to be legibly hand-printed.
