Submitting Original Papers and Plagiarism Policy
The contents of IEIE SPC journal are peer-reviewed and archival. Authors must convince both peer reviewers and the editors of the scientific and technical merit of a paper. All authors should submit the manuscript containing original contents. The manuscript which has not been simultaneously submitted to, nor published in any other publication channels, solely can be accepted. If the same paper is found appearing or published in any other publications, the paper will be rejected without consideration. The paper previously published in other minor publications such as conference, workshop, seminar, or proceedings can be eligible for being reviewed and published in this transactions. However we require that the paper be substantially revised with at least 30% new contents which have never been published in the previous publications. Although new results are not required, the revised manuscript version should include distinct-key-ideas, examples, explanations, figures, tables, elaborations, etc. The manuscript should indicate its previously published conference name and date as a footnote in the left bottom of the first page. Authors should briefly indicate how the new submission offers substantial novel contributions beyond those of the previously published paper(s) or proceedings. We strictly prohibit plagiarism (reproduction of text from other articles without crediting the source) and self-plagiarism (production of a paper with the same content by the same authors). It is unethical to submit the same results to more than one journal simultaneously. However, the review article is an exception. If plagiarism is found in a paper in review or in the publication, the Steering Committee of the IEIE SPC journal will immediately investigate the case. The severe penalty will be imposed on the author(s) related to the plagiarism case based on the investigation.
 All IEIE SPC articles are archived in RISS.
