Instructions for Guest Editors & Authors

Comprised of papers and articles by leading experts, Proceedings of the IEEE provides in-depth survey, review, or tutorial coverage of important technical developments in electronics, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science. Learn more about becoming a published author or a distinguished guest editor.

Selected Papers offer the following:

REVIEWS that critically examine a technology, tracing its progress from its inception to the present—and perhaps into the future.

SURVEYS that comprehensively view a technology—its applications, issues, ramifications, and potential.

TUTORIAL PAPERS that explain a technology and give practical information for implementing it. These papers are written to inform non-specialists about a particular technology.

Guest Editors

The special issues and special sections published by Proceedings of the IEEE are led by distinguished Guest Editors teams. Special issues and special sections are highly valued by the core research communities as well as specialists in other areas looking to be brought up to speed with the latest advances in areas outside of their own expertise. Special issues cover a key topic of interest to electrical engineers and computer scientists and serve as a guide to the state of the art in the particular area. They typically include 10-15 papers. Special sections explore important topics that may not yet require a full issue’s coverage. They typically include 3-5 papers.

Instructions for


Papers published in the Proceedings are reviews, surveys, or tutorials, offering applications-oriented coverage that goes beyond the traditional boundaries typically found in other journals. The papers must offer new perspectives and insights and should be accessible to specialists outside of the area while remaining citable by the core research community. 

The Proceedings of the IEEE Editorial Board oversees our mission.
