IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing: Submit a Manuscript
Submitting a paper to TCC
To Submit your paper, please use Manuscript Central.
The full scope of TCC can be found on TCC's about page
NOTE: We seek submission of papers that present new, original and innovative ideas for the "first" time in TCC (Transactions on Cloud Computing). That means, submission of "extended versions" of already published works (e.g., conference/workshop papers) is not encouraged unless they contain significant number of "new and original" ideas/contributions along with more than 65% brand "new" material. If you are submitting an extended version, you SHOULD submit a cover letter/document detailing (1) the "Summary of Differences" between TCC paper and earlier paper, (2) a clear listing of "new and original" ideas/contributions in TCC paper (identifying sections where they are proposed/presented), and (3) confirming the percentage of new material. Otherwise, submission will be "desk" rejected without any reviews.
Manuscript types accepted by TCC
TCC manuscript types and submission length guidelines are as follows:
- Regular paper – 14 double column pages or 30 single column pages (Note: All regular paper page limits include references and author biographies)
Survey papers are not accepted into peer review for TCC.
Please note that double column will translate more readily into the final publication format. A double column page is defined as a 7.875" x 10.75" page with 10-point type, 12-point vertical spacing, and 1/2 inch margins. A single column page is defined as an 8.5" x 11" page with 12-point type and 24-point vertical spacing, containing approximately 250 words. All margins should be one inch (top, bottom, right and left). These length limits are taking into account reasonably-sized figures and references.
This publication is a hybrid journal, allowing either Traditional manuscript submission or Open Access (author-pays OA) manuscript submission.
The OA option, if selected, enables unrestricted public access to the article via IEEE Xplore. The OA option will be offered to the author at the time the manuscript is submitted. If selected, the OA discounted fee of $1,750 must be paid before the article is published in the journal. If you have unusual circumstances about this, please contact the Editor-in-Chief. Any other applicable charges (such as the over-length page charge and/or charge for the use of color in the print format) will be billed separately once the manuscript formatting is complete but prior to the publication.
The traditional option, if selected, enables access to all qualified subscribers and purchasers via IEEE Xplore. No OA payment is required.
