P&E Magazine Submission Information

For consideration for publication in IEEE Power & Energy Magazine, articles should be submitted as Word files in single-column, double-spaced format. All text components of the article should be included, with all graphics, tables, etc. shown in their desired location within the body of the article. Articles are limited to 6 magazine pages, corresponding to approximately 5,000 words, including graphics. Submissions should be sent via e-mail to PEMsubmissions@ieee.org, and should include the corresponding author's name, complete mailing address, phone, fax and e-mail.

Following approval, submit text/graphics files and a signed IEEE Copyright Form (via e-mail) to PEMsubmissions@ieee.org. Text files must include all text components of the article (e.g., body of the article, figure captions, tables, sidebars, if any, and brief author biographies), and should be submitted in Microsoft Word. Separate graphics files (300 dpi minimum) should be submitted in encapsulated postscript (.eps), TIFF (.tif), or JPG format; name each file according to its relationship to the article, e.g., fig1.eps, fig2.tif, etc. More information is available in Part 7 of the PES Author's Kit which may be found on this site in the Publications area. Your article will be forwarded to IEEE Magazines, where it will be edited and produced. Prior to publication, you will receive a review copy of your edited text for final approval.

Please note that a magazine article differs considerably from a technical paper which is prepared for Transactions status. Magazine articles do not contain abstracts, keywords, conclusions and references (though suggested "further readings" are acceptable). Generally speaking, magazine articles do not employ equations or formulas; they try to adhere to the adage "if it cannot be said in words, it does not belong in a magazine article." Also, as Power & Energy Magazine is a four-color publication, we prefer that articles be accompanied with graphics, photos, screen captures, etc. to enhance their content.
