Style and Editing

We encourage IEEE MultiMedia authors to write in a conversational style, presenting technical material
clearly and simply that is suitable for a readership of generalists and specialists. Authors should use
figures, tables and sidebars to explain specific points, summarize results, define acronyms, highlight critical items and guide readers to relevant external resources.

Before publication, staff editors edit all articles to meet house style and space constraints. You can expect to work closely with the editorial staff in the three to four months before the publication date; please advise us in advance of any scheduling conflicts. This interaction increases clarity, conciseness, and conformity with MultiMedia style.


IEEE MultiMedia is looking for succinct, practical, readable articles that will appeal to experts and non-experts alike.

Your article should not exceed around 6,500 words, including all text, the abstract, keywords, bibliography, biographies, and table text. Each table and figure is counted as 200 words (to account for white space needed). Any article that exceeds this word count may be rejected automatically without going through the review process. Also there should be no more than 12 figures/tables combined and no more than 18 references. Include a title page containing your submission's title and the names, affiliations, and contact information for all authors.
