Author Guidelines

Contributions are accepted in the form of Regular papers, Letters and Tutorials. Regular papers should present a well-rounded treatment of a specific problem with significant contributions, whereas Letters are short communications of recent results. Tutorial papers are intended for dissemination of knowledge of a specific topic in communications to non-experts readers. At the Editor's discretion, other kinds of papers may be published if they are found to be relevant or of interest to the readers. Responsibility for the content of the papers rests upon the authors only.

The Journal is aimed at an international audience and, for this reason, submissions must be in English. Authors are asked to submit a PDF (Portable Document Format) electronic version of the paper through the online submission system. Please, note that files cannot exceed 2 Mbytes.

Since the SBrT is a sister-society of IEEE-COMSOC, its publications follow the same requirements of IEEE-COMSOC publications. Hence, final version of the paper must be provided according the IEEE Transactions template, available at the IEEE website.

The authors are encouraged to submit their contributions using the IEEE templates for Transactions, available at IEEE website.
