Here are some of the general guidelines. A list of 4-5 keywords (index terms) and an abstract (described below) are required for all manuscripts submitted to this journal. When submitting a new article through the Manuscript Central System, you may choose your own keywords related to the submitted manuscript. The submitted manuscript must be in the following format:

  • PDF format;
  • Singled-spaced, double column, standard IEEE published format.

All pages should be numbered. Provide an abstract that is a concise yet comprehensive reflection of what is in your article according to the following guidelines:

  • 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.

Authors are encouraged to put detailed derivations in appendixes.
