Author Guidelines

The JCIS receives contributions in the form of Regular Papers, Letters, and Tutorials.

  • Regular papers should have at least eight (8) pages and present a well-rounded treatment of a specific problem with significant contributions;
  • Letters are short communications of recent results. Letters must also follow the IEEE Transactions template, with a limit of four (4) pages of technical content plus one (1) page only for references. Author biographies and photos are not included in the Letter format. 
  • Tutorial papers should have at least eight (8) pages and are intended to disseminate knowledge of a topic in communications to non-experts readers. 

Responsibility for the content of the papers rests upon the authors only.

The Journal is aimed at an international audience, so submissions must be in English. Authors are asked to submit a PDF (Portable Document Format) electronic paper version through the online submission system.

SBrT is a sister society of IEEE-COMSOC; thus, the contributions must be formatted using the two-column IEEE Transactions Template. Please, include the DOI (digital object identifier) for all references.

Please, note that files cannot exceed 2 Mbytes.
