After a manuscript has been accepted for publication, the author's company or institution will be requested to pay a charge of $110 per printed page to cover part of the cost of publication. Page charges for this TRANSACTIONS, like those for journals of other professional societies, are not obligatory nor is their payment a prerequisite for publication. The author will receive 100 free reprints without covers if the page charge is honored. Corresponding authors from low-income countries are eligible for waived or reduced open access Article Processing Charges (APCs) (https://open.ieee.org/index.php/about-ieee-open-access/faqs/#waivers).
