All accepted articles will be included in the print issue mailed to subscribers. The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual ( Each published article is reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.


The technical content of papers should be both new and significant. Experimental data should be complete and should include sufficient descriptions of experimental apparatus, methods, and relevant experimental conditions. References should be thorough and complete.

Papers Presented at Conferences

Papers previously or planned to be presented at/published by conferences will be considered for publication under the following conditions.

  • The author must disclose information on conference presentation when the paper is submitted for review.
  • The author must significant additions/modification to the paper. This could include: new data and detailed analysis of the experimental results; addition of references to the previous work of others (not previous work by the authors); a discussion of the previous work and how the author’s work expands or builds on the previous work: a discussion of how the author’s results compare/contrast the previous work; etc.
  • The author must include a reference the previously published paper in the reference section.
  • The author should modify the title to reflect the fact that  the paper has been “significantly” modified.
  • A description of the modifications must be provided at the time of submission (either in the Author’s cover letter, or in a file uploaded with the manuscript.
