General Guidelines


The IEEE has general requirements for its peer-review journals in the IEEE Policies.

The key points are:

  • a minimum of 2 independent reviewers are needed
  • the procedure outlined by the Publications Services and Products Board (PSPB) Operations Manual needs to be followed
  • the contents of papers under review are treated as privileged information
  • all authors are given equal opportunity to publish their work

Section 8.2 provides publications guidelines. Additional key points:

  • plagiarism, fabrication, and falsification are unacceptable
  • a paper submitted should not be submitted to another refereed journal as well
  • anonymity of the reviewers should be preserved
  • "The primary purpose of these periodicals is to disclose, and provide a permanent archival record of original technical work which advances the state of the art or provides novel insights."
  • "Papers are to be selected strictly on the basis of merit and appropriateness"

Reviewer anonymity has several aspects:

  • the authors are unaware of the reviewers' identities
  • each reviewer is unaware of the other reviewers' identities

Should there be a concern, such as plagiarism or double submission, such a concern needs to be brought to the attention of the Editor-in-Chief.


The Transactions on Vehicular Technology are published by the IEEE and sponsored by VTS
