Submission Information

JXCDC IS AN OPEN ACCESS ONLY PUBLICATION

All JXCDC papers are freely available to any reader on IEEE Xplore.  Upon submission, you commit to paying an open access fee of $1,350 USD if your paper is accepted for publication in order to enable unrestricted public access.  If your paper is accepted, you may choose between two publishing agreements: the IEEE Open Access Publishing Agreement and the Creative Commons (CC BY) license.

 

PUBLISHING ETHICS

All IEEE authors are expected to adhere to IEEE’s publishing ethics, including the definition of authorship, the appropriate citation of sources, the accurate reporting of data, and the publishing of original research. Visit the IEEE Author Center to learn more. All papers submitted for publication should be original and not under consideration elsewhere; if your paper is based on a previous publication such as a conference proceeding, cite the original publication and clearly indicate how the papers differ. Contact the Editor-in-Chief with any questions on publishing ethics. 

 

ORCID

All IEEE journals require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCID is a persistent unique identifier for researchers and functions similarly to a paper’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI). You will need a registered ORCID to submit a paper or review a proof in this journal. Learn more about ORCID and sign up for an ORCID today.

 

PREPARING AND SUBMITTING YOUR PAPER

Use the JXCDC template to format your paper for submission.  Your paper must be between 4-8 pages in template form; longer papers will be returned to the author.  Submit your figures individually in PS, EPS, PDF, PNG, or TIF format; consult the IEEE Author Center for guidance on creating your figures.  Your paper should focus on describing why the work is important, the state of the prior art, the key new accomplishment(s) or results, and then what the research directions are going forward.

Authors are strongly encouraged to include a detailed methodology as supplementary material, which will be peer reviewed along with the main paper and, if accepted, published in IEEE Xplore alongside the paper.

All papers must be submitted through the submission site ScholarOne Manuscripts at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jxcdc
