The IEEE Signal Processing Letters is a monthly, archival publication designed to provide rapid dissemination of original, cutting-edge ideas and timely, significant contributions in signal, image, speech, language and audio processing. Papers published in the Letters can be presented within one year of their appearance in signal processing conferences such as ICASSP, GlobalSIP and ICIP, and also in several workshop organized by the Signal Processing Society.
A Signal Processing Letter is a five pages long paper, in the two column version, comprising at most four pages of technical content plus one page only for references. The journal can be edited with the same formatting guidelines as those used for the Transactions, except for the length of the paper that is much shorter. The lean format of the IEEE Signal Processing Letters is meant to promote ideas not sacrifice rigor. Supplementary material (up to three pages) that is included in IEEExplore can include mathematical proofs and additional references that are not immediately necessary to follow the flow of the paper. It can also be used to aid the reproduction of the numerical results (an additional three pages).
The Transactions encourages authors to make their publications reproducible by making all information needed to reproduce the presented results available online. This typically requires publishing the code and data used to produce the publication`s figures and tables on a website; see the supplemental materials section of the information for authors. It gives other researchers easier access to the work, and facilitates fair comparisons.
It is now possible to submit for review and publish in Xplore supporting multimedia material such as speech samples, images, movies, matlab code etc. A multimedia graphical abstract can also be displayed along with the traditional text. More information is available under Multimedia Materials at the IEEE Author Digital Tool Box.
