Peer Review – The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual. Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.

Being there for You – the Authors

Just a brief note to express my hope that all of you are doing well and staying safe and to assure you that despite the pandemic’s impact the Transactions are functioning.

At the same time we also want to ensure that the Society is providing adequate support to you – the Authors. We understand that under the current circumstances, you may have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our usual requirement to submit the final version of your manuscript. Please do let us know if you need a little extra time to submit responses to reviewers’ comments – we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Let me also take this opportunity to thank all Editors and Reviewers, so freely volunteering their time and to IEEE Publishing Operations Personnel for their technical support.

With my best wishes – stay well.
