Learn the steps for submitting a paper proposal to the Proceedings of the IEEE.
Papers published in the Proceedings present information that is of interest to a wide audience within the IEEE membership and beyond. The typical paper contains motivation for topic and background to help the technically competent reader, who is not a specialist in that particular area. The major contribution of the paper should be the theories, results, and potentials that demonstrate that this topic will have significant impact to a large part of the readership.
Authors should submit a four- to six-page proposal containing a description of the topic and its importance to Proceedings readers, a detailed outline of the proposed paper and its type of coverage, and a brief biography showing the author's qualifications for writing the paper (including reference to previously published material as well as information on the author's relation to the proposed topic). In order to demonstrate the appeal of the topic to a wide audience, potential authors should provide background citations that extend well beyond their own work.
Proposals should be submitted to the Proceedings of the IEEE Editorial Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the proposal is approved, full-length manuscripts should be submitted to Manuscript Central for peer review. All contributions are peer reviewed by three (3) experts in the field. Approval of the proposal does not imply acceptance of the submitted manuscript.
