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.

2. On-Line Submission
Manuscripts should be submitted via On-Line Submission by following the instructions.
To expedite the process, the following files are required for all submissions:
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.

4. Revision Process

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.
