IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, Part B, Electronic Publishing
Welcome! Thank you for choosing to submit your manuscript
to the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, Part B electronically.
You can expect faster, high quality reviews.
You can include
attachments. In addition, our goal is that your paper will appear on the IEEE XPLORE
web site in four to five weeks after we receive the final accepted version
with copyright, and later will appear in the printed journal. The following
set of pages enables you to submit an electronic version of
your journal article for the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics
Part B. Please note that as of January 1, 2002 all papers to Part
B must be submitted electronically. The submission process and the advantages
are described below. General information on the SMC
society and the
Transactions is available by following the highlighted links.

Why submit electronically?
What is the format? What kinds of attachments?
How do I submit my paper now that it is written?
Electronic submission is expected to significantly reduce the review
cycle. More importantly, it allows you to include attachments
(e.g. images, video, animations) to help explain the research represented
in the paper. You can include code and data that allows others to build
on your research. In addition, an accepted paper that was submitted
electronically will appear on the IEEE XPLORE web site within 3 weeks of
receipt of the corrected page proofs of an accepted, formatted paper ,
so you get your work disseminated faster. The paper will appear
in print in the usual way at a later time in the IEEE Transactions
on SMC, Part B for archival purposes.
Your paper must be submitted in Portable Document Format (pdf) or
PostScript. It must print correctly on 8.5 X 11
inch paper. For Unix and Windows systems there are postscript
to pdf converters, notably ps2pdf which is a part of ghostscript.
A text version of your abstract is required.
You will find that PDF files are usually smaller and therefore
faster to upload than PostScript files.
The following are allowable attachments at this time:
There are publicly available viewers for most platforms for each of the
first 3 types of attachments. Details of acceptable attachments
are provided here.
Mpeg video files, and
Code with specific compilation instructions and execution
instructions and machine specific information may also be submitted.
Data sets are encouraged with a description of the data format.
Formatting instructions are available here: Author
