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

Proceedings of the IEEE publishes eight to nine Special Issues per year. Special Issues are led by distinguished Guest Editor teams and contain several survey, review, and tutorial articles from leading experts in the technology areas being covered. The Special Issues serve as a guide to the state of the art and are highly valued by the core research community, as well as specialists in other areas looking to quickly come up to speed on the latest and more promising advances in areas outside of their own expertise.

Papers published in the Proceedings are usually 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.
