Please note that a Magazine article differs from a technical paper which is prepared for Transaction status. Magazine articles are less apt to contain abstracts, keywords, conclusions and references, though suggested "further readings" are quite common. However certain articles on historic fundamentals may be more useful with these formatting details. Please inquire of the editor-in-chief with any questions. Also, as Solid-State Circuits Magazine is a four-color publication, we prefer that articles be accompanied with graphics, photos, screen captures, etc. to enhance their content. Authors are advised to stay within any page or word limit indicated by the editor acquiring your manuscript. In general articles are less than 5 magazine pages, corresponding to approximately 3,000 words, including graphics.

All articles must be submitted via the IEEE SSC-MAG AUTHOR PORTAL

Prior to publication, you will receive a review copy of your edited text for final approval.
