General Information for Contributors

Contributions to the IEEE Antennas and Propagation magazine are accepted through ScholarOne Manuscripts web-based system at Contributors are encouraged to contact the magazine Editor-in-Chief before submitting their articles to inquire whether their prospective submission is within the scope of the magazine. Article formatting requirements vary based on the type of article. The authors are asked to consult and for general instructions.

All manuscripts should be no more than 10 pages in length. If you believe your paper needs to be a longer length, please contact the Editor-in-Chief beforehand to discuss the pertinent reasons. Meeting reports should be no more than 2 pages in length, with no more than 5 pictures. Calls for Papers or other announcements should be only 1 page, and the event should be sponsored by AP-S unless otherwise arranged beforehand. All submissions should be in PDF form, though you are welcome to upload additional source material in other formats as well. More specific instructions and templates for the AP Magazine Feature Articles and Columns may be provided at a later date, but for the time being standard IEEE publication templates should be used. Manuscripts should be in English. The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to accept, reject, and/or edit any and all material submitted.

All IEEE journals will start requiring an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCID is a persistent unique identifier for researchers and functions similarly to an article’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI). ORCIDs enable accurate attribution and improved discoverability of an author’s published work. In order to submit a manuscript or review a proof in this journal, an author will need a registered ORCID. If you are a new user, you will be able to register a new ORCID or associate your ScholarOne account with an existing ORCID by following instructions found in the email you will receive once you sign up. Otherwise, there will be on-screen instructions in the Author Center. More information about ORCID can be found here “ORCID Info Page” along with Frequently Asked Questions “ORCID FAQ””

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 via link at, must be included with each submission. All material associated with contributions may be discarded after the issue containing the contribution goes to press, unless otherwise requested. The nominal deadline for material not requiring peer review or extensive editing is 120 days prior to the start of 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. All feature articles are subject to full peer review per IEEE policy. All contributions to departments are reviewed by the Associate Editor(s) for that department, with additional peer review as deemed necessary by the Associate Editor.

Notice: The opinions, statements, and facts contained in the magazine are solely the opinions of the authors and/or sources identified with each contribution. All trademarks and service marks are the property of their respective owners, whether or not specifically identified as such. IEEE prohibits discrimination, harassment, and bullying.
