 Article Submission Information

  1. All articles must be submitted via our submission site at

2. Format your article for submission using the Transactions article template located in the IEEE Author Center. Follow all guidelines on stylistic elements such as figures, tables, equations, abbreviations, etc. Figures and tables must be placed inline at their relevant position in the text. Author names and affiliations are mandatory, but biographies are optional during the review process.

3. Submit your article text in PDF format. Visit the IEEE Author Center for information on writing the abstract, using equations in your article, publishing author names in native languages, and more.

4. For information on submitting supplementary material such as graphical abstracts, multimedia, or datasets, visit the IEEE Author Center


If your article is accepted for publication, you will receive emailed instructions regarding your next steps. You may be asked to upload final production-ready files. Shortly after final files are uploaded, you will receive your article proofs for final review, along with instructions on how to review your proofs and submit any corrections. Please note that major changes to your article, including the list of references, are not permitted after the article is accepted for publication.  Please contact the Editor-in-Chief if you have any doubts about whether a modification you wish to make is appropriate.


All IEEE authors are expected to adhere to IEEE’s publishing ethics, including the definition of authorship, the appropriate citation of sources, the accurate reporting of data, and the publishing of original research. Visit the IEEE Author Center to learn more. All articles submitted for publication should be original and not under consideration elsewhere.

During submission, all related prior publications and related current submissions in other journals or conferences should be fully declared. Include a pdf copy of those papers, as well as a prepublication statement explaining the overlap and differences of the submitted manuscripts for the convenience of the reviewers. Furthermore, authors should inform the Editor-in-Chief of any related submissions made while their OJ-PEL submission is in review.

Prior and related publications obviously refer to e.g. earlier conference papers on which the OJ-PEL manuscript elaborates. But also other publications where (part of) the submitted work was disclosed, earlier work of you or your group in the same field on which the submitted manuscript builds further, etc. must be included.

Please consider this list carefully. An automated plagiarism check is performed on each submission, and violations of this prepublication policy detected during the review process may result in a publication ban.
