Manuscript types accepted by TKDE

TKDE manuscript types and submission length guidelines are as follows:

  • Regular paper – 14 double column pages (Note: All regular paper page limits include references and author biographies)
  • Concise paper – 6 double column pages
  • Comments paper – 2 double column pages
  • Survey paper – 20 double column pages

Please note that TKDE only accepts the double column format which will more readily translate 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. These length limits are taking into account reasonably-sized figures and references. All regular and survey paper submissions must include the author biographies.

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.
