Submission guidelines for each Society publication may vary. To be sure you are meeting all of the requirements for a specific publication, visit IEEE Xplore® and select the publication you wish to be published in by using the browse or search feature.

Many publications have a "submit a manuscript" icon you can click on. This lets you know that you can use Manuscript Central to make your submission.

If the Manuscript Central icon is not available on that page, you may need to visit that specific publication's home page or contact the Editor-in-Chief directly to gain access to that specific publication's submission guidelines. Most publications offer an "Author Resources" section on the bottom of the left-hand column where there are links to "IEEE Information" and "Additional Information," which may provide the guidelines.
