TIM Special Issue



The M&N 2013 Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (TIM) is intended to promote best results presented at M&N 2013.

The authors of any paper accepted and presented to M&N 2013 are invited to submit an extended version of the conference paper for possible publication on the M&N 2013 Special Issue of IEEE TIM.

Each manuscript should be based on a paper published in the M&N 2013 Proceedings and presented at the workshop. However, the manuscript MUST be significantly extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper (in terms of the overall TECHNICAL content and research results).

The Special Issue will contain papers selected on the basis of the results of regular peer review of the manuscripts submitted for consideration by the participants of M&N 2013.

Please note that papers submitted to TIM must be within the scope of the journal (click to see the Scope of the Transactions), and that the fact that they have been accepted for presentation at the conference does not automatically mean that they are within the scope of TIM. Indeed, extended papers submitted for possible publication in the Special Issue must be clearly related to the state-of-the-art of instrumentation and measurement and refer to scientific and technological results published in related archival journals.

Submission dates (NO EXCEPTION)

Special issue manuscript may ONLY be uploaded in the period of November 25 - December 9, 2013. Please DO NOT try to submit your papers earlier, since the M&N2013 Special Issue folder in Allentrack will not be available.

Preparation for manuscript submission

The manuscript, together with the accompanying documents “viz. the manuscript submission cover letter, the IEEE copyright transfer form, and the overlength page charge form” must be submitted electronically using the web-based submission system. Prior to submission of the manuscript, its author, especially if he/she has not yet used that system, should register and obtain a password that will enable him/her to enter the system and read Authors Instructions and Manuscript Upload Instructions. Both instructions contain information of vital importance for the problem-free submission. In particular, Authors Instructions provide the guidelines for the preparation of the manuscript. The following additional requirements must also be satisfied when submitting the manuscript:
The manuscript must be TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper, as mentioned above.

At the time of submission, the authors must provide detailed information regarding how the manuscript is a technically-extended version of the proceedings paper, as per the instructions below.

The proceedings paper MUST be clearly referred to in the text and listed as one of the references in the Special Issue manuscript. A PDF copy of the proceedings paper must also be submitted, as per the instructions below.

When uploading your manuscript click on “Special Issue Manuscript” in the “Manuscript Upload Instructions” page of the Allentrack System.  Then, in page #1 of “Submit Manuscript” you must choose the proper Special Issue (i.e., M&N2013 Special Issue).  Subsequently, in the same page and in the “Files to Upload” section you MUST upload two files; one with containing a detailed explanation of how the paper is TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper and another which is a PDF copy of the M&N 2013 Proceedings paper.  To this end, you must put the number “2” in the small box in front of “Extension Beyond Proceedings & Copy of Proceedings (if any was published)” so that the system allows you to upload these two files.  Consequently, these two files will be available to the reviewers.

Failure to submit a detailed explanation of the technical extension and a PDF copy of the M&N Proceedings paper will result in the immediate return of the manuscript to the author(s) as an unacceptable submission.

Notice: The M&N 2013 paper identifier should be put in the upper right-hand corner of every document to be submitted.
