Overlength Page Charges Coming Into Effect
At its October 2017 meeting, the IAS Executive Board adopted a policy to impose an overlength charge on exceptionally-long papers published in IEEE Industry Applications Magazine (M-IA) and IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications (T-IA). Here are some details on how that practice will be implemented:
  • The target maximum length of papers published in M-IA and T-IA is nine pages.
  • For exceptionally long papers, a mandatory overlength charge will be determined at the time the page proof is approved for publication, and an invoice for that amount will be sent to the corresponding author.
  • The overlength charge will be calculated at the rate of US$120 per page for pages 11 and above of the final manuscript as formatted for publication M-IA and T-IA. Note that there will be a one-page margin between the target maximum length and the length at which the overlength charge will apply.
  • This overlength policy will apply to papers published in M-IA and T-IA beginning with the January/February 2019 issues. Authors should understand that papers submitted for review in 2018 and subsequently approved for publication may not actually be published until after this overlength policy takes effect.
