Withdrawing Papers


Sometimes an author will wish to withdraw a paper. Any such requests should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief. The Editor-in-Chief withdraws a paper by "un-assigning" it from the Editor, then notifying the authors that the paper has been withdrawn. Before the Editor-in-Chief un-assigns the paper, it is good for the Editor to "un-assign" the reviewers, using the can icon in the online tool, to let them know that a review is no longer needed.

When a paper has been accepted with minor revisions or the decision is to reconsider, major revisions, there is an issue of when the revision is submitted. It is expected that the author will submit a revised paper within a reasonable length of time. If this time exceeded, or the author simply does not wish to revise the paper, then eventually the paper should be withdrawn. Currently, thee is no automatic procedure for this. It is recommended that after 12 months of inactivity, the paper be considered withdrawn.

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