Effective October 1, 2018: Mandatory Overlength Page Charges for IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits
The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Board has decided to implement overlength page charges in order to maintain the competitive and financial health of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits. The continued success of the journal serves our technical community and keeps our flagship publications competitive within the IEEE family.
Starting October 1, 2018, the SSCS is implementing mandatory overlength page charges for the J-SSC. If a manuscript exceeds ten pages in length, overlength charges are applied beginning at the 11th page. Charges are assessed when galley proofs are prepared, which is the last step before final publication in the Journal. The page count does not include references or author biographies. However, an overlength charge will be applied if text other than references or author biographies is included on a reference/biography page. The rate for overlength submissions is $185 per page.
This policy applies only to the J-SSC, and does not apply to Solid-State Circuits Letters (L-SSC), or other SSCS publications (e.g., SSC Magazine).
The SSCS policy on page limits is strictly enforced. Payment for overlength pages – if any - must be received at the time galley proofs are approved and submitted by the author.
SSCS values its authors, members, and volunteers. This policy protects your body of work and ensures the sustainability of the J-SSC for the future.

Two Upcoming SSCS Webinars
The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society continues it's 2018 webinar series with two upcoming webinars in August and September.
On Thursday, August 30th at 12:00 PM ET, Professor Bernhard Boser (UC Berkeley) will present, "Tactical Grade Gyroscope Performance in a Consumer Grade Process". Please click here to register.
On Wednesday, September 12th at 1:00 PM ET, Samuel Palermo (Associate Professor, Texas A&M University) will present, "Design Techniques for Scalable, Sub-pJ/b Serial I/O Transceivers". Please click here to register.
Attendees of SSCS webinars have the opportunity to earn Professional Development Hours and Continuing Education Units. Once a webinar is complete, a link will be provided to you via email to complete a form to receive a certificate.
Did you miss a past SSCS webinar? All SSCS webinars can be viewed online on the SSCS Resource Center.
Call for Contest Submissions (2018-2019)
The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society plans to run an annual circuit theory/analysis contest for undergraduate students and an annual circuit design contest (that may require simulations) for graduate students.
To have access to a rich set of candidate questions, the SSCS would like to invite its members to submit their proposals for these contests. The proposals that are selected for the contest will receive a $2000 award towards attending an SSCS-sponsored conference.
We encourage submitting original problems that our members may have faced during the course of their work in industry and academia. The proposed questions should not have obvious answers or answers that can be found easily by searching the internet.
