Manuscript Submission Guidelines for Signal Processing Magazine Feature and Special Issue Articles

Published: March 2012

 

Upload your single-column, double-spaced manuscript as a PDF file "manuscript.pdf" to the ScholarOne Manuscripts site. You may also submit your manuscript as a PostScript or MS Word file. The system has the capability of converting your files to PDF, however it is your responsibility to confirm that the conversion is correct and there are no font or graphics issues prior to completing the submission process.

A comprehensive author’s information page can be found at:
http://www.signalprocessingsociety.org/publications/periodicals/spm/spm-author-info/.

  1. Account in ScholarOne Manuscript. If necessary, create an account in the on-line submission system ScholarOne Manuscripts. Please check first if you already have an existing account which is based on your e-mail address and may have been created for you when you reviewed or authored a previous paper.
  2. Electronic Manuscript. Prepare a PDF file containing your manuscript in double-spaced format (one full blank line between lines of type), with the following specifications.
     
    Special issue article: For each paper in the special issue, provide up to 20 single column double-spaced pages, 11 point font size, including figures, tables and references. The total number of figures and tables should not exceed 10 (sub-figures in (a), (b), (c), etc. counted separately). There should be at least 1.25" margin on left and right sides, and 1" margin from top and bottom. The figures and tables should be placed in the center of the column, and not tightly embedded into the text column. For some special issues, the page limit may be even less if more papers are included. In any event, check with the guest editors before writing the full manuscript.

    Feature article: Provide up to 40 double-spaced pages, 11 point font size, including figures, tables and references. The total number of figures should not exceed 15 (sub-figures in (a), (b), (c), etc. counted separately) and the total number of references should not exceed 50. There should be at least 1.25" margin on left and right sides, and 1" margin from top and bottom. The figures and tables should be placed in the center of the column, and not tightly embedded into the text column.
  3. Double-Column Version of Manuscript. You are required to also submit a roughly formatted version of the manuscript in single-spaced, double column IEEE format (10 points) using the IEEE style files (it is allowed to let long equations stick out). This double-column version submitted will serve as a confirmation of the approximate publication length of the manuscript. Upload this version of the manuscript as a PDF file "double.pdf" to the ScholarOneManuscripts site.
  4. Additional Material for Review. Please upload PDF versions of all items in the reference list, which are not publicly available, such as unpublished (submitted) papers. Other materials for review such as supplementary tables and figures, audio fragments and QuickTime movies may be uploaded as well. Reviewers will be able to view these files only if they have the appropriate software on their computers. Use short filenames without spaces or special characters. When the upload of each file is completed, you will be asked to provide a description of that file.
  5. Submission. After uploading all files and proofreading them, confirm that all figures and equations are visible in your document and then submit your manuscript by clicking "Submit." Proofreading is critical; once you submit your manuscript, the manuscript cannot be changed in any way. A confirmation of the successful submission will open on screen containing the manuscript tracking number and will be followed with an e-mail confirmation to the corresponding and all contributing authors.
  6. Copyright Form and Consent Form. By policy, IEEE owns the copyright to the technical contributions it publishes on behalf of the interests of the IEEE, its authors, and their employers; and to facilitate the appropriate reuse of this material by others. To comply with the IEEE copyright policies, authors are required to sign and submit a completed "IEEE Copyright and Consent Form" prior to publication by the IEEE. The IEEE recommends authors to use an effective electronic copyright form (eCF) tool within the ScholarOne Manuscripts system. You will be redirected to the "IEEE Electronic Copyright Form" wizard at the end of your original submission; please simply sign the eCF by typing your name at the proper location and click on the "Submit" button.
