Progress In Electromagnetics Research (PIER) Journals publish peer-reviewed original and comprehensive articles on all aspects of electromagnetic theory and applications. The on-line journal PIER (E-ISSN 1559-8985) has been first published as a monograph series on Electromagnetic Waves (ISSN 1070-4698) in 1989. It is freely available to all readers via the Internet. PIER B (ISSN 1937-6472), PIER Letters (ISSN 1937-6480), PIER C (ISSN 1937-8718), and PIER M (ISSN 1937-8726) are new online accessed journals since 2008.

PIER is a non-profit organization.

Manuscripts submitted to PIER Journals must not have been submitted simultaneously to other journals. Authors are solely responsible for the factual accuracy and originality of their articles, and all articles are understood to have received clearance(s) for publication. Authors found submitting manuscripts simultaneously to other journals will be suspended for a year from further submission. Authors found submitting plagiarized manuscripts will be banned for three years from further submission.

All papers should be submitted to PIER Journals via On-Line Submission.

PIER Journals will use new format since 2014. Usually, succinct papers within 6 pages in length will be published on PIER Letter. Papers longer than 10 pages will be published on PIER B; papers 6-10 pages long will be scheduled on PIER, PIER C, and PIER M. However, papers on different topics, or with different page lengths can also be selected or assigned to different PIER Journals. Journals Editorial Board will make the final decision to schedule accepted paper into specific journals based on considerations of topical relevance, page budget of the journals, review inputs, time constraint for publication, etc..

1. PIER Publication Fee, Page Limit and Overlength Page Charge:

As all articles in all PIER Journals are available online and free of charge to all readers, PIER authors are required to pay the publication fee (if any according to the calculation below). New format is used for PIER Journals from the beginning of 2014.

The total publication fee is the sum of the paper charge and the overlength page charge.

The paper charge is USD 200 for each paper in PIER. There is NO paper charge for PIER B, C, M and Letters. The page limit is 6 pages for PIER Letters, 10 pages for PIER, PIER C, PIER M, and 20 pages for PIER B. The overlength page charge is USD 100 for each journal page in excess of the page limit. Authors are strongly advised to pay attention to the page limits before submitting the manuscript.

2. On-Line Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted via On-Line Submission by following the instructions.

  • Manuscripts must be in English.
  • The first page should contain the title of the paper, name(s) and affiliation(s) of the authors.
  • Full name, email of each co-author and keywords should be provided in the paper file. Name and email of the corresponding author should be clearly indicated.
  • Abstract should consist of one paragraph not containing numbered references. All nonstandard symbols and abbreviations must be defined.
  • Headings and subheadings of the paper (e.g., abstract, introduction, formulation, methods, results, discussion, conclusion) sections should be clearly indicated.
  • Tables and figures should have captions. The maximum width for table and figure is 11 cm.
  • Figures must be compatible for grayscale use.
  • Symbols, line thickness, and lettering should be in proper scale in relation to the overall figure size so that reduction will not reduce clarity. Times or Helvertica font is suggested to be used in figures.
  • Equations, tables, and figures, should be numbered consecutively. In the body of paper, all references, figures, and tables must be cited with an Arabic numeral according to the order in which it is discussed in the paper.
  • References must contain full title, place and year of publication, and be listed at the end of the article in the reference section. Technical reports, memos, unpublished or to be published articles must not be listed as references, only published work in journals and books may be cited as references.
  • English Grammar: To save the time of our reviewers, authors are encouraged to use grammar check software or find the help of a native speaker to proofread the manuscript before submission.
  • Original Contribution: The originality of the scientific contribution should be clearly stated in the manuscript.

To expedite the process, the following files are required for all submissions:

  • Source file in TEX (recommended) or DOC format.
    * If the source file is in TEX format(LaTeX sample file), source files of figures in EPS or PDF format are required.
    * If the source file is in DOC format, EPS or PDF format of figure is NOT required.
  • A PDF file of the manuscript including all text, equations, and figures.
    * English font only.
    * Figures must be compatible for grayscale use.
    * This PDF version should be carefully prepared as it will be directly sent to the reviewers.
  • The full name and email of each co-author should be provided in your paper file.

3. Review Process and Proof Read Typeset Version

All manuscripts are peer reviewed by three independent referees. The Editorial Board prescreens all manuscripts to decide whether a manuscript will be peer-reviewed or declined out right without going through the review process. This is to preserve resources of available reviewers. Manuscripts declined up front can be due to poorly written English, contents being out of the scope of the journals, deficiencies in manuscript format, similarity to previous publications, previous decline or withdrawal, banned author due to asserted plagiarism, or that its subject matter is not of interest to PIER, which only publishes well-presented original contributions in electromagnetics.

To expedite the journal process, some manuscripts will be rejected after review process. Some manuscripts will need revision. Some manuscripts will be typeset before acceptance. You may be required to proofread it once the typeset version is available. If there is no revision needed for the typeset version, please take no action and do not submit a file without any revision mark.

Only review comments with constructive suggestions will be made public to the authors. If some comments appear online, please do not send revisions via email. Kindly wait for our email notice. The revision checklist will be available online when you are required to revise your manuscript.

Usually, the review process of PIER Journals takes 3-6 weeks. Some special cases may need more time.

4. Revision Process

When enough review inputs are received, you may be required to improve your manuscript according to the review comments. A final decision of acceptance or rejection will be made after receiving and evaluating your revised version together with additional new review inputs.

To expedite the process, the following files are required in this revision stage:

  • The point-by-point answers to the reviewer comments in a separate file.
  • A revised version with clearly marked revisions.
    Please kindly mark revisions in different color or indicate the page and line numbers where the revisions should be made. Revision marks will expedite the checking process by the editors or reviewers.
  • If your paper has not been typeset, the whole revised article (TEX with EPS or PDF figures, or DOC files) is recommended to expedite the typeset process.

Revisions are strongly advised to be submitted via Online Checklist. An acknowledge email will be sent to the corresponding author immediately once the online revision checklist is successfully submitted. Email revision submission is NOT encouraged due to unpredictability of emails. It will also delay the revision process.

5. Journal Selection and Final Proofread

After the revision process, the Editorial Board will recommend specific journal(s) to publish your paper, based on considerations of topical relevance, page budget of the journals, review inputs, time constraint for publication, etc.. If you do not like the suggested journal(s), you may choose to withdraw your manuscript. Any revision to reduce contents in this Final Proofread stage is not be acceptable.

You are required to download the PDF file to proof read, check to see if there are additional review reports, and fill in the checklist form in the "To Do" list within 30 hours. The manuscript will not be scheduled until it is approved by the author.

Once it is scheduled, no changes can be made to the paper. If we do not receive the timely response, paper may be withdrawn from our file.

6. Schedule Notice

Approved paper will be queued in the publication schedule. Once it is scheduled for publication, you will be informed as early as possible via email. Once a paper is approved and scheduled, it cannot be withdrawn.

JEMWA & PIER were founded by Professor Jin Au Kong in 1989. JEMWA has been acquired by Taylor & Francis Group in 2012. It has been formally separated from PIER Journals on Jaunary 1, 2013.
