Submitting a paper to TDSC

To Submit your paper, please use ScholarOne Manuscripts.

Detailed information on submitting your paper to TDSC can be found in the Authors tab of the IEEE Computer Society Journal Peer Review page.

Please note that while the EIC, AEs, and reviewers do their best to make sure that papers are free of errors, it is the responsibility of the authors to submit papers with correct spelling and grammar.

The full scope of TDSC can be found on TDSC's about page

Manuscript types accepted by TDSC

TDSC manuscript types and submission length guidelines are as follows:

  • Regular paper* – 14 double column or 30 single column pages (Note: All regular paper page limits include references and author biographies)
  • Short paper – 8 double column or 15 single pages
  • Comments paper – 2 double column or 4 single pages

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.

Open access

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.
