The IEEE Electrification Magazine is a quarterly magazine dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to electrification in vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and spacecraft, as well as off-grid applications* including microgrids**.  Feature articles in the magazine focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with all aspects of electrification in the transportation and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in synergy with nontechnical issues such as business, environmental, and social concerns.

Membership in IEEE's technical societies provides access to top-quality publications such as this one either as a member benefit or by discounted subscriptions.  The electronic version of this publication is available for purchase by both members and non-members.

*Off-grid applications include small-scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks.
**Microgrids include networks that provide secure power supply in both grid-connected and stand-alone modes.



Proposals for articles* should include the corresponding author's name, complete mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail address.  Once proposals are ready, they should be submitted by email to electrification@ieee.org with a copy to Lingling Fan.

When a proposal is approved, the article should be submitted as a Word file in single-column, double-spaced format.  All text components should be included along with items such as graphics and tables in their desired location within the article.  Articles should be between six to eight pages, approximately 5,000 words, and include graphics.  Since the magazine is a four-color publication, it is preferred that articles have images such as graphics, photos, and screen captures to enhance the content.

If the article is accepted for publication, submit all text and graphic files, a PDF of the complete article, and a signed IEEE Copyright Form by email to Randi Scholncik-Phlippidis with the subject "Final File Submission of Accepted Article and the Corresponding Author's Last Name".  Text files must include all text components of the article (e.g., the body of the article, figure captions, tables, sidebars (if any), and brief author biographies) and be submitted as a Word file.  Separate graphics files (300 dpi minimum) should be submitted in encapsulated postscript (.eps), TIFF (.tif), or JPG format and named according to their relationship in the article (e.g., fig1.eps, fig2.tif, etc.).  The article will then be forwarded to IEEE Magazines to be edited and produced.  Before publication, the author will receive a review copy of the edited text for final approval.

For questions or more information, please contact Lingling Fan.

*Please note: magazine articles differ from technical papers, which are prepared for transactions status.  Magazine articles do not contain abstracts, keywords, conclusions, and references (though suggested "further readings" are acceptable).  Generally, magazine articles do not employ equations or formulas but try to adhere to the adage "if it cannot be said in words, it does not belong in a magazine article."
