1 Review Stage
Authors of regular and conference-related papers should prepare their papers for review using Microsoft Word and this template or LaTeX and the files contained in IEEEtran.zip. If your paper is submitted in conjunction with a conference, please observe any page limits specified by the conference. Do not change the font sizes or linespacing to squeeze more text into a limited number of pages. Note: unless the conference chair has decided otherwise, conference-related papers follow the same review procedures as regular papers.
Regular and conference-related papers must be submitted electronically to IEEE’s on-line manuscript submission and peer-review system, Manuscript Central. Regular papers should be submitted athttp://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/transmag-ieee; for conference-related papers, go to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/magconf-ieee. You should first check if you have an existing account. If there is none, please create a new account. (Your log-in information is the same on both sites.) After logging in, go to your Author Center and click on the link, “Click here to submit a new manuscript.”
Along withother information, you will be asked to select the type of submission from a pull-down list. If you are submitting a conference-related paper, choose the type appropriate for your conference. Additionally, conference authors are asked for the conference paper number. Using the format specific to your conference, enter this number in the text box and also in the header at the top of this document.There are 7 stages (screens) to the submission process; you must complete all 7 for a complete submission. At the end of each stage you must click “Save and Continue”; simply uploading files is not sufficient. After step 7 you should see a confirmation that the submission is complete. You should also receive an e-mail confirmation. For inquiries regarding the submission of your paper onManuscript Central, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1 732 465 5861.
Manuscript Central will accept files for review in the following formats: DOC, RTF, PS, or PDF. PDF is preferred at the review stage. If you used LaTeX to prepare your document, you must generate a PDF or PS file to upload to Manuscript Central. Whatever format you upload, your figures should be embedded in the file,usually at the end.
You will be asked to file an electronic copyright form after your paper is accepted for publication. (Authors are responsible for obtaining any security clearances.)
2 Final Submission
After your paper is accepted, you will be asked to upload final files to Manuscript Central. These will include your DOC, RTF, or LaTeX document source file with embedded figures; anadditional PS or PDF file if your source is LaTeX; and separate, individual figure files. These individual files may be in any of the following formats: TIF (preferred), PDF (preferred), JPG, GIF, EPS, DOC (MS Word, especially good for tables), or PPT (MS PowerPoint, commonly used to make figures). If you own Adobe Acrobat, please convert your DOC tables and PPT figures to PDF (or click on “CreateAdobe PDF Online” at http://www.adobe.com). Figure and table files should be named following this convention: FIG1.TIF, FIG2.PPT, FIG3.PDF, etc. See more about figure preparation in Section III below.
Also upload a file with complete contact information for all authors. Include full mailing addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses. Designate the author who submitted themanuscript on Manuscript Central as the “corresponding author.” This is the only author to whom proofs of the paper will be sent.
When your final submission is completed, your paper will be sent to IEEE for typesetting. PDF page proofs will be sent by e-mail to the corresponding author in 6 to 8 weeks, and your paper should appear in print 1 to 2 months after you return your...
