Information for Authors

IEEE Technology and Society Magazine invites feature articles (refereed), special articles, and commentaries on topics within the scope of the IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology, in the broad areas of social implications of electrotechnology, history of electrotechnology, and engineering ethics.

Submitted manuscripts for articles should typically be no longer than 5000 words. Commentaries (up to 1000 words) and letters to the editor (under 500 words) often focus on previously published papers, IEEE and SSIT affairs, and conferences. References and footnotes should appear as separate lists at the end of the paper.

Submissions are through the IEEE Author Portal (see “Submitting a Manuscript” below.) Please note that while Manuscript Central accepts pdf submissions, after acceptance an original Word or RTF file will be required.

Authors are required to sign an IEEE copyright transfer form before publication of their paper and to obtain any necessary security clearance release. Additional information will accompany the acceptance letter.
