AWPL Introduces a Free Reference Page (February 2018)

References are now excluded from the page count.

1) The technical content is still limited to 4 pages. This limit will be strictly enforced to keep the letters concise and to the point, in the original spirit of AWPL.
2) It is now acceptable that the reference list extends to a 5th page. This will provide sufficient space for thorough referencing without competing with technical content.
3) The authors will not be charged for the last page of their article if it contains only references.

More details:

Corresponding author information

IEEE Publications have recently (August 2016) decided to explicitly state the corresponding author on the first page of all future journal articles:

"All IEEE publications will start indicating the corresponding author on the first page of each article. Some publications already have a standard style to display this information; for those that don't we will include the information at the end of the first footnote in italics as outlined in the examples below. IEEE Staff will implement this requirement so there is nothing you need to do.

Manuscript received April 27, 2012; revised September 18, 2012; accepted July 25, 2013. Date of current version September 09, 2013. This work was supported by the UEFISCSU under Grant PN-II 65/01.10.2007 and Grant PN-II 331/01.10.2007. The associate editor coordinating the review of this manuscript and approving it for publication was Prof. Vesa Valimaki. (Corresponding author: Jun Ming.)

Manuscript received May 2, 2011; revised September 9, 2011; accepted October 12, 2011. Date of publication November 29, 2011; date of current version March 7, 2012. This work was supported by the National Basic Research Program (973 program) of China under Grant 2012CB619302 and Grant 2011CB301903, by the National High Technology Research and Development Program (863 program) of China under Grant 2011AA03105, and by the Innovative Doctoral Student Training Program in Sun Yat-sen University. (Corresponding authors: Jessie Y. C. Chen; Shiyuan Fan.)

Including this information will improve the accuracy of our articles' metadata in indexes such as Thomson Reuters' Web of Science. IEEE Staff will start including corresponding author information on newly accepted articles that are sent to production. Older articles will not be updated retroactively."

As stated above, this information will be included by IEEE Staff, based on the information provided in the Maunscript Central submission process. However, should you wish to include it yourself in your submitted paper (for example, to estimate the number of pages accurately), please ensure it is accurate and matches the information provided in Manuscript Central.

ORCID - starting July 2016

From July, all IEEE journals will require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCIDs enable accurate attribution and improved discoverability of an author’s published work. The author will need a registered ORCID in order to submit a manuscript or review a proof in this journal.

Follow these steps to link a ScholarOne account to a registered ORCID:

  1. Login to ScholarOne and click on your name in the top right corner of the screen.
  2. Click "E-mail / Name" in the dropdown menu.
  3. In the ORCID section at the top of the page, click the appropriate link to either register for a new ORCID or associate the account with an existing ORCID.
  4. A new page will open to create and/or validate your ORCID. Once the validation is complete, the new page will close and you will return to ScholarOne.
  5. Save the changes to your ScholarOne user account.

Authors who do not have an ORCID in their ScholarOne user account will be prompted to provide one during submission.

Graphical abstracts

We are pleased to announce that AWPL now supports Graphical abstracts. Graphical abstracts are concise and illustrative refletions of a paper for use on IEEE Xplore, and can be images, animations, video or audio. See the Information for Authors for more information.

Native language names supported!

IEEE journals can now include author names in their native language, alongside the English versions of the names, in the author list of the article. Authors must provide the native language name in Unicode characters in the files they submit for publication, to be displayed in the byline of the article, after the English version of the name. For more information, please visit the IEEE Author Digital Tool Box, download the PDF, or see the "Instructions and Forms" section of the ScholarOne Manuscript Central website.
