The IEEE Transaction on Transportation Electrification (TTE) is focused on components, grid-interfaced technologies, standards, sub-systems, and systems related to power and energy conversion, propulsion, and actuation for all types of electrified vehicles, including on-road, off-road, off-highway, and rail vehicles, airplanes, and ships.  Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Topics of interest include:

  • Grid interface technologies
  • Hybrid and electric powertrains
  • Inductive charging
  • Mass transit and public transportation electrification
  • On-board and off-board chargers, fast chargers, and opportunity chargers
  • Propulsion systems
  • Source-to-wheel (STW) energy and supply-chain analysis
  • Standards
  • Utility issues related to plug-in vehicles and other grid-interactive transportation
  • Vehicle connectivity modules
  • Vehicle-to-grid (V2G), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-home (V2H) interfaces

Submit a Paper

Manuscript Submission:

Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions or survey papers for review for publication in TTE. All manuscripts must be submitted through ScholarOne Manuscript.  

Papers submitted for consideration should report on original results not previously presented in any other archival publication, including but not limited to any IEEE Transactions. Notwithstanding this requirement, papers previously presented and published in a Conference Record or Proceedings sponsored by any of the sponsoring IEEE societies of TTE (IAS, IES, PES, PELS, RS, VTS) will be considered (provided that the paper is significantly improved when compared with the conference version of the paper). Copyright release may be required if the conference publication is copyrighted by an entity other than IEEE. It is the responsibility of the authors to obtain a copyright release if required for submission to TTE. 

It is not required for a paper to have been presented or published at a conference to make it eligible for consideration by TTE. 

Authors must indicate in their submission any prior presentation and publication at a conference or prior submission to any other publication. 

TTE only publishes papers in English. Inadequate English or the use of other languages obscure the technical content of the manuscript and will be grounds for rejection. It is therefore the responsibility of authors to ensure that papers submitted for review are formulated in acceptable English. 

Please note that TTE does not publish Correspondence papers (with possible exceptions based on the decision of and upon invitation from the Editor in Chief).

Please also visit IEEE’s Author Center, which includes a graphics analyzer tool, PDF Checker, Reference Preparation Assistant, and more. 

Please contact our Editorial Assistant if you have further questions. 

Manuscript Format: Beginning in January 2023, all submissions should be in a double-column format and all single-column submissions will be returned.

The paper should be prepared based on letter-size paper (either 8.5″ x 11″ or A4 sizes) and should be in a double-column, single-spaced format for all submissions (regular paper, letter, and correspondence/corrections). Please use standard fonts such as Times Roman (serif), Helvetica (sans serif), and Symbol. Unusual fonts may create incompatibilities that delay processing. It is the authors’ responsibility to make sure the submitted files (in PDF or .ps format) are fully viewable and in the intended format.

Author biographies, photos, and copyright form should not be included in the original submission. Do not include page or line numbers in the uploaded file – ScholarOne Manuscripts/Manuscript Central automatically adds page and line numbers.

For increased readability during the review process, figures and tables should be interspersed throughout the text of the manuscript, accompanied by captions if possible.

Manuscripts should include all figures, tables, captions, and references, as well as author bylines beneath the paper title (author bylines are required by IEEE at all stages of the review process). Note the author byline on the paper must match the Manuscript Central submission (all authors should be included on both).

The first page should contain the paper title, full first and last names of all authors (do not use an initial for the first name), and author organizational affiliation. Paper titles should avoid extraneous words such as “new” or “novel” that have limited search value. The corresponding author must be indicated clearly, along with the corresponding author’s name, postal address, voice telephone number, and e-mail address. The first page should indicate whether or not the paper has been presented at a conference or submitted elsewhere previously, and if so should specify the conference name, dates, and location. The first page should also contain an abstract of not more than 200 words. The abstract should not only indicate the subject and scope of the paper but should summarize, if possible, the authors’ conclusion, so that the abstract itself may be a useful document in an information retrieval system. The authors should provide a list of up to five keywords for indexing purposes. Begin the main text of the paper on the second page.

Authors should attempt to limit paper length so that, should it be accepted for publication in the Transactions, the final result is eight pages or fewer in length. Longer papers are subject to mandatory overlength page charges. The submission of papers in a series (Part I, Part II, etc.) on the same subject is normally discouraged as a matter of policy. In such cases, the authors may be asked to consolidate the work into a single submission.

A template is available under the Instructions & Forms tab at the top of ScholarOne Manuscripts.
