Page Charges

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. Papers submitted to this transaction will be imposed mandatory over-length page charge for pages in excess of 10 pages for a full paper, 15 pages for a survey paper, and 6 pages for a brief paper. Authors of papers accepted for publication will be assessed a mandatory page charge of $200 (per page) for every printed page over these limits. The maximum total manuscript length (excluding supplementary materials) with over-length page charge is 15 pages for a regular paper, 21 pages for a survey paper, and 9 pages for a brief paper. For "Comments Papers and Communications" existing rules apply.

Color figures are automatically posted in color on the IEEE Xplore website free of charge. The color-in-print charge is a flat rate of $275 per figure. The corresponding author of the article has the opportunity to address the color-in-print option during an “Article Setup” step. All invoices and payments are handled through an automated payment portal system. The payment portal allows various payment types such as credit card, bank wire transfers, check, preapproved waivers, special payment circumstances, and third party billing. Please note that these are costs for color printing and do not include page charges or reprint charges, which must be paid separately. Once your paper is received at the IEEE, a staff editor will contact you with specific instructions on how to proceed with color figures.
