Submitting a Paper to LOCS
To submit your paper, please use ScholarOne Manuscripts.
Detailed information on submitting your paper to LOCS can be found on the "Authors" tab of the IEEE Computer Society Journal Peer Review page.
The following templates are provided to assist you with formatting your submission; however, the final layout for LOCS papers will appear in a more condensed format. Full specifications on the IEEE Computer Society style can be found in our Style Guide.
Submitted letters must be four pages or fewer, including all figures, tables, and references. Submissions exceeding this length will be returned without review. Pages in excess of these limits after final layout of the accepted manuscript is complete are subject to Mandatory Overlength Page Charges (MOPC). Papers should use IEEE transactions two-column format in 9-pt. font.
NEW MOPC POLICY: For new submissions effective 15 May 2018, the fee to publish pages in excess of the regular paper limit of four pages will change from $200/page to $220/page.
