IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine


Special Notice to IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine Authors


Starting January 15, 2015, the Antennas and Propagation Magazine will be accepting papers exclusively through the ScholarOne Manuscript web-based submission system.  In the meantime, if at all possible, we recommend that authors withhold their paper submissions until the web-based system is operational, as it is expected to result in a more efficient and expedient review process.  Updated guidelines for page limits and formatting will be announced in early January.

Information for Contributors

The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine actively solicits feature articles that describe engineering activities taking place in industry, government, and universities. All feature articles are subject to peer review. Emphasis is placed on providing the reader with a general understanding of either a particular subject or of the technical challenges being addressed by various organizations, as well as their capabilities to cope with these challenges. Articles presenting new results, review, tutorial, and historical articles are welcome, as are articles describing examples of good engineering. The technical field of interest of the Magazine is the same as the Antennas and Propagation Society, and includes the following: antennas, including analysis, design, development, measurement, and testing; radiation, propagation, and the interaction of electromagnetic waves with discrete and continuous media; and applications and systems pertinent to antennas, propagation, and sensing, such as applied optics, millimeter- and sub-millimeter-wave techniques, antenna signal processing and control, radio astronomy, and propagation and radiation aspects of terrestrial and space-based communication, including wireless, mobile, satellite, and telecommunications. A more-detailed statement of the field of interest is available in the Society Bylaws at If you are interested in submitting an article, please contact Fred Gardiol, Hisamatsu Nakano, Y. M. M. Antar, Ercument Arvas, or the Editor-in-Chief, Ross Stone, to discuss the appropriateness of the topic. Contributions to the departments and columns are also solicited: contact the Associate Editor for the particular department.


The easiest way of submitting a feature article is to e-mail a PDF to the Editor-in-Chief. A PDF with all fonts embedded and without security enabled should be used. Please also include an image (a PDF is fine) of a completed IEEE copyright form (see below). Contributions to a column or department should be submitted directly to the Associate Editor for that department. All other contributions should be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief. Manuscripts should be in English and should be created using not less than a 12 point font. Do not attempt to match the Magazine’s formatting. For feature articles and contributions to departments, an abstract and a list of keywords must be included. The IEEE’s approved list of indexing keywords, available at, should be used. Receipt of contributions will be acknowledged, and authors will be informed of the result of the review process. When accepted, authors will be notified in detail of what material will have to be provided to publish the contribution. Typically, this includes the original word-processing file, and all figures in image-format (e.g., TIFF or JPEG) files.


The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to accept, reject, and/or edit any and all material submitted. Page proofs or galleys will not be provided, and the degree of editing will be at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief; usually, all material is fully edited. Submission of material will be interpreted as assignment and release of copyright and any and all other rights as if the standard IEEE Copyright and US Export Control Compliance Forms had been signed by the copyright owner. A properly executed IEEE Copyright Form, available at, must be included; an executed US Export Control Compliance Form must also be included if required. All material associated with contributions will be discarded after the issue containing the contribution goes to press, unless a request is made to return figures or photos. The nominal deadline for material not requiring peer review or extensive editing is the fifteenth day of the month prior to the month of publication. Contact the Editor-in-Chief if you have timely material that cannot make this deadline. Because there are no page charges, free reprints are not provided. It may be possible to order reprints, which is best done in advance: contact the Editor-in-Chief. All feature articles are subjected to full peer review per IEEE Policy. All contributions to departments are reviewed by the Associate Editor(s) for each department, with additional peer review if deemed necessary by the Associate Editor. Contributions to the AMTA Corner are fully peer-reviewed by AMTA.
