ASC 2016 offers the opportunity to publish selected, peer-reviewed papers submitted by conference attendees in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity (TAS), an archival, peer-reviewed, fully indexed and searchable journal published by the IEEE Council on Superconductivity. The publication process allows final manuscripts to be available on IEEE Xplore as early as 90 days after the conference, and most, if not all, accepted manuscripts will be available for download and citation prior to the scheduled June 2017 release of the entire Special Issue (vol. 27, no. <TBD>). At the release date, a digital copy of the special issue will be delivered to conference attendees whose registration fee includes this item.
MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION DEADLINE
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2016
Important EDITORIAL POLICIES and AUTHOR RESOURCES
PRESENTATION IS A REQUIREMENT FOR PUBLICATION
Authors presenting at ASC 2016 are not required to submit a manuscript. For authors that choose to submit a manuscript, only subject matter presented at ASC 2016 will be considered for publication. This includes presentations in oral or poster format. The presentation should be given at the appointed time in the program, by the appointed author or co-author. Changes to the program, which have been approved by the ASC 2016 Program Chair, will be allowed for submitted manuscripts.
MANUSCRIPT VALIDATION CODES
Manuscript submission is validated by a unique code. Only the Full Conference, Student and Retiree Participant registration fees include one (1) manuscript submission code. Other registration types do not include a manuscript submission code. Authors in these other categories must pay the standard TAS manuscript fee of US $440 to receive a registration code.
A code belonging to a co-author may be used by the submitting author to validate a manuscript. Multiple co-authors who choose to submit multiple manuscripts may also judiciously allocate codes provided by their registration fees. However, multiple use of a unique code will invalidate all submissions identified by that code.
Authors may submit multiple manuscripts provided that each submission is related to a presentation. If the author or a co-author cannot provide a manuscript code, additional codes can be obtained by paying the standard TAS manuscript fee of US $440 for each code required.
PAPER & PAGE LIMITS
The page limit is 4 pages for contributed papers, 6 pages for invited oral/poster papers and 12 pages for plenary papers. These page limits do not apply to References—References may continue onto or entirely take up additional pages at no additional cost. The additional page fee is $110 per page.
IEEE Publications may re-format graphics to ensure compliance with the IEEE Graphics Guidelines. In some cases, this could result in the body text extending substantially beyond the allowed page limit. You may be contacted for payment of an additional page fee if this occurs. To avoid this potential problem, please ensure that your graphics comply with the IEEE Graphics Standards and are sized appropriately, as indicated in the manuscript template.
PAYMENT OF FEES
Additional page/paper fees must be paid by Tuesday, September 6, 2016 to meet the manuscript submission deadline. Advance payments can be arranged via the online registration site. Page and paper fees are not refundable. Rejection of a manuscript after peer review does not imply any refund of any fees paid to obtain a registration code.
SOME KEY FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW! PLEASE READ!!!
- Read the Editorial Policies: http://ieeecsc.org/pages/editorial-policies. In particular, a paper may be deemed unsuitable if it (a) does not meet the scope of the special issue; (b) presents content other than what was presented at the conference; (c) does not present a clear scientific discussion or contains minimal new scientific material; (d) contains minimal references; (e) is written in poor English language; or (f) has major style errors, although style errors should not occur if this template is used.
- To avoid delays or even the rejection of your manuscript for reasons related to English language take advantage of the paper writing service (http://www.prof-editing.com/ieee/index.php) – for about $8.00 per 250-word page.
- Articles will be automatically checked for plagiarism (including self-plagiarism) using electronic databases, including other submissions to the same conference. Severe cases of plagiarism will result in rejection of a manuscript, and may trigger other punitive actions by IEEE. The most common mistake by authors is cutting and pasting from previous versions of manuscripts describing earlier stages of the same work.
- Authors should only use the approved TAS Manuscript Template found at http://ieeecsc.org/pages/tas-special-issue-authors-resources. Re-use of old templates will be automatically detected, and may force mandatory major revisions to comply with the approved template.
SUBMISSION & PEER REVIEW SITE
The manuscript submission site is scheduled to open on Monday, August 29, 2016. An email will be sent to the corresponding author of the accepted abstract with instructions on how to access the site and upload the manuscript. The manuscript submission deadline is Tuesday, September 6, 2016. Late submissions will only be accepted at the discretion of the special issue Editor-in-Chief.
