Some important hints for manuscript style include:

Manuscript Style: The manuscript should be typewritten using double spacing, one side of sheet only. All pages should be numbered consecutively, including illustration pages, with no omitted page numbers.

Abstract: The abstract must be a concise yet comprehensive reflection of what is in your article. In particular:

  • The abstract must be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, or references. It should be a microcosm of the full article.
  • The abstract must be between 150-250 words. Be sure that you adhere to these limits; otherwise, you will need to edit your abstract accordingly.
  • The abstract must be written as one paragraph, and should not contain displayed mathematical equations or tabular material.
  • The abstract should include three or four different keywords or phrases, as this will help readers to find it. It is important to avoid over-repetition of such phrases as this can result in a page being rejected by search engines.
  • Ensure that your abstract reads well and is grammatically correct.

References: References should be put on a separate page and provided in IEEE style.

Preferred E-file Formats: IEEE can process most commercial software programs, but not page layout programs. PostScript files should not be submitted. The preferred programs are TeX, LaTeX, Microsoft Word and WordPerfect (using only standard macros).
