Information for Authors

Tutorial Articles

We invite tutorial articles that provide a new perspective on traditional topics or emerging/interdisciplinary areas. We do not host papers presenting previously unpublished results. The first step is to submit an article white paper, following the article white paper instructions; upon approval of the white paper, the second step is to submit a full article for review, following the full article submission instructions.

Article White Paper Submission Instructions

An article proposal consists of a short writeup (up to three pages single column, 11 point font size). This should include information on authors (short bio), title, short description of the main topic and its timeliness, specific papers covered (references) and structure of the proposed full tutorial article.   

Full Article Submission Instructions

Each article would include 10-12 single column pages, 11 point font size,  at least one figure (to be hosted at the website) and at most five figures/tables/subfigures, up to 30 references, at least 1.25" margin on left and right sides, and 1" margin from top and bottom.

Special Issues

We also invite proposals for special issues that collect tutorial articles focused around a specific topic.
