As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).

  • Where available, URLs and DOIs for the references have been provided. All submissions from March 2014 need to provide in the final version the DOI of the references cited at the accepted paper.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

  • The text adheres to the requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • The file size does not exceed 2MB.

Author Guidelines

Contributions are accepted in the form of Regular Papers, Letters and Tutorials. 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.

  • Regular papers should 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 size limit of four (4) pages of technical content plus one (1) page only for references, including at the final version.
  • 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.
