Submission of papers
Original articles must be submitted in English. Upon completion of the evaluation process, every article will have its English version, which will be published on IEEE Xplore, and its Spanish or Portuguese version, which will be freely and openly accessible to the authors.
If the article exceeds 10 pages, a fee of $100 USD will be charged for each additional page up to a maximum of 16 pages.
Article submissions should be made through the IEEE Author portal.
The manuscript must be submitted including a cover letter stating that it is an original, previously unpublished manuscript written in English. The cover letter should also indicate if the article is submitted to a monograph.
The review process that follows upon receipt of the manuscript is as follows:
Its originality is checked through plagiarism and self-plagiarism tools. If a percentage equal to or greater than 25% is detected, they will be directly rejected, in addition to the appropriate measures that may be adopted according to the norms of the IEEE Manual Ops.
Subsequently, the manuscript is technically reviewed by at least three reviewers under the direction of an associate editor.
Once the manuscript is accepted, the final version of the article in English and its translation in Spanish or Portuguese must be sent. The detection of a percentage of at least 25% will imply the rejection of the article, in addition to the measures that may be adopted according to the norms of the IEEE Manual Ops.
IEEE RITA accepts submissions of extended versions of scientific conferences. These articles must have a significant extension of the work of at least 30%.
The manuscript must be submitted indicating in the cover letter that it is an extended manuscript from a conference, stating the name of the conference, and that it is written in Spanish, Portuguese, or English (specifying the language).
The review process is similar to that followed with original manuscripts, except for the plagiarism and self-plagiarism check, which allows a higher percentage of self-plagiarism than 25% and always compatible with the new material submitted. If these conditions are not met, the article will be rejected.
In addition to all these aspects, the norms of IEEE for the authors of its publications will always be applicable, which can be consulted in the Manual Ops and Originality.
