Guidelines for Editors
- Editor-in-Chief serves as liaison/coordinator between the Regional Editors and
Managing Editor of Advancing Microelectronics.
- Editor-in-Chief is responsible for completing and adhering to the Editorial Schedule matrix.
- Regional Editors are the liaison between the Editor-in-Chief and the authors of the technical articles.
- Editor-in-Chief’s responsibilities are for the magazine’s technical content only.
- All Editors should submit the following:
- Brief “Guest Editorial” describing the theme of the article and goal along with a photo of yourself.
- One Technical article on “hot topics” in the industry, related to the magazine theme.
- A color photo, representative of the issue’s theme, for use on the cover of the magazine along with proper acknowledgements. For example, “Cover photo is the courtesy of____.” You must also describe the photo for our readers.
- The technical pyramid tier under which the submitted article falls.
- Technical article submission should:
- A current state-of-the-art article not more than one year old.
- Be sent via E-Mail to email@example.com in a Microsoft Word, PC compatible format; or authors can send an PC compatible CD.
- Be an unformatted document.
- Not be a PDF file.
- Not have overly long references or biographies.
- Figures, tables and photos, must be sent separately from the original document.
- Be clearly identified, including descriptions and instructions for placement in the article.
- Be at least a first or second iteration.
- The Managing Editor reserves the right to:
- Determine if article is too long for print and forward to Web with appropriate notation in print version of the issue.
- Edit each article submitted for grammar, punctuation, and style.
- Re-format articles to fit magazine layout.
- Remove any overly long references or bios. (We will print “References available upon request” at the end of the article, if this becomes necessary).
*It is important to submit materials on the deadline dates. Failure to do so results in a delayed publication, which extirpates the timeliness of the information in the issue.
