Information for Authors
All IEEE journals require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCID is a persistent unique identifier for researchers and functions similarly to an article’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI). ORCIDs enable accurate attribution and improved discoverability of an author’s published work. The author will need a registered ORCID in order to submit a manuscript or review a proof in an IEEE journal. Researchers can sign up for an ORCID for free via an easy registration process on orcid.org.
Authors who do not have an ORCID in their ScholarOne user account will be prompted to provide one during submission.
Principles of Scholarly Publishing
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 (https://pspb.ieee.org/images/files/files/opsmanual.pdf). Each published article was 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.
Manuscripts are submitted in *PDF and in Microsoft Word form for review, and in, LaTex for later processing by IEEE publications. A template is available to guide authors in the preparation of the manuscript and in estimating total number of pages.

Submissions are revised by the Editorial Office for completeness and language proficiency. Submissions that are deficient will be sent back to the authors.
Upon submission, authors select a set of keywords which identify the topics of their paper. In turn, the list guides the Editorial Office on the selection of the Associate Editor who will handle the review process. Authors can track the status of their submission at any time through ScholarOne Manuscripts.
