Information for Authors

Initially, if you have any problems with submitting files to the journal editorial system, please contact the editor using the email:

It should be noted that Transactions on Electromagnetics does not charge any article processing charges (APCs).

Below, the important points for how to prepare the manuscripts for the journal are stated.

The template of the journal is given as follows:

Submission Files

Manuscript Template (Download from Here)



Copyright Form (Download from Here)

Must be downloaded and signed by the authors.

Cover Letter (Download from Here)

Please explain in your own words the significance and novelty of the work, the problem that is being addressed, and why the manuscript belongs in this journal. Do not simply insert your abstract into your cover letter! Briefly describe the research you are reporting in your paper, why it is important, and why you think the readership of the journal would be interested in it.

Article Types

Transactions on Electromagnetic Spectrum accepts the following types of submissions matching its Aim & Scope.

Original research articles, review articles, short communications, and letters to the editor are welcome.

The total number of pages of the relevant subsections as required for the journal in question and the references (with figures and tables) excluding supplements must not exceed 20 pages for all manuscript types. The editor-in-chief can change the manuscript type after the manuscript submission. The number of pages may increase during the revision, if necessary, but it cannot be more than 25 pages.

Research Articles: A research article reports the results of original research and assesses its contribution to the body of knowledge in a given area with the relevant data and findings in an orderly, logical manner. Research articles should have an abstract of 300 words at most, and should have no more than 10 figures and tables combined.

Review Articles: A review article is written to summarize the recent developments, improvements, discoveries, and ideas in various subjects. Review articles should present an unbiased summary of the current understanding of the topic.

Short Communications: Short communications are short papers that present original and significant material for rapid dissemination. A research note/short communication may focus on a particular aspect of a problem or a new finding that is expected to have a significant contribution to science.

Letters to the Editor: Letters to the editor reflect the opinions of other researchers on articles in previously published issues of the same journal. Typically, letters address the contents of an original journal article for one or more of the following reasons: to identify errors and make a correction, provide an alternate theory, provide additional information, offer additional evidence, or provide a counterpoint.



You must proofread your manuscript before submission to check for spelling and grammatical errors. During submission, please choose the most suitable category (article type) for your paper. The manuscript should be in standard MS word document format only, and you will be guided stepwise through the creation and uploading of the various files.

Papers are accepted for evaluation on the understanding that

  • they have not been published,
  • they are not being considered for publication simultaneously elsewhere,
  • they are not going to be submitted for publication elsewhere.

After a manuscript has been submitted, it is not possible for authors to be added or removed or for the order of authors to be changed. If authors do so, their submission may be canceled (see Policies and Publishing Ethics Section for details).

All authors are required to provide their ORCID ID during the submission process so that the process of evaluation and publishing of the manuscripts can continue in accordance with our publishing policy. If you do not have an ORCID ID, you can visit to get your unique 16-digit ORCID ID number.

During the first check, journal administrators may return the articles for the following reasons:

  • The manuscript is not prepared in the format provided on the journal’s website,
  • The manuscript file is not the same as the manuscript template file given on the journal’s website,
  • The number of references or pages exceed the specified limits,
  • The authors did not perform the requested corrections or provide the necessary documents within the requested time,
  • Similarity index (iThenticate result) is higher than the permitted threshold. There is no single number for the similarity percentage since each report is investigated in detail, but submissions exceeding 25% score are generally returned to authors. The resubmission of the same title without reducing the similarity score may cause a ban of the authors from the journal. Similarity reports with more than 50% scores, even in a single submission, may cause a ban from the journal and the authors’ future submissions may not be considered for publication.

Preparation of the Manuscript

Manuscripts that are not prepared using the template will not be considered for publication. Manuscripts must be prepared and submitted in MS Word format, please DO NOT upload the manuscript as PDF file.

In order to sustain a solid draft for the submitted manuscripts, the journal web-site includes a novel template file, where the authors can use freely to write their text. Inside that journal template, the spaces, fonts, address details and e-mail info should be explicitly indicated.

Manuscripts should be divided into clearly defined and numbered sections as appropriate. Principal sections should be numbered consecutively (1. Introduction, 2. Materials and methods, etc.) and subsections should be numbered 1.1., 1.2., etc. Do not number the Acknowledgments or References sections.

  • Title and abstract

The first page of the main manuscript should begin with the title in sentence case. Do not include author names or affiliations here. Directly below the title, an informative abstract of not more than 300 words must accompany each manuscript. The abstract should not contain citations. Abstracts of review articles should be a brief overview of the main points from the review.

  • Keywords

Please provide a minimum of 3 and maximum of 6 key words or phrases to enable retrieval and indexing. Only the first letter of the first key word should begin with a capital letter; the other key words should be written in lower case. Please do not put a period at the end of the list of key words. Acronyms should be avoided. Key words should not be a virtual copy of the title.

  • Acknowledgments/disclaimers/conflict of interest, if any

Please include any necessary acknowledgments or disclaimers here. Names of funding organizations should be written in full.

All authors should also disclose any conflict of interest that may have influenced either the conduct or the presentation of the research.

  • Informed Consent

Manuscripts reporting the results of experimental investigations conducted with humans must clearly state that the study protocol received institutional review board approval and that all participants provided informed consent in the format required by the relevant authorities and/or boards. Please reference the relevant review board(s) and approval code(s) here.

  • Style and Format

Manuscripts that are not prepared using the template will not be considered for publication. Formulae should be numbered consecutively in parentheses.

In general, the journal follows the conventions of Scientific Style and Format, The CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers, Council of Science Editors, Reston, VA, USA (7th ed.).

The manuscripts (except Letters to the Editor) should be divided into logically ordered and numbered sections. Principal sections should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals (1. Introduction, 2. Materials and methods, etc.) and subsections should be numbered 1.1., 1.2., etc. Do not number the Acknowledgments and References sections.

Manuscripts must be written in English. Contributors who are not native English speakers are strongly advised to ensure that a colleague fluent in the English language or a professional language editor has reviewed their manuscript. Concise English without jargon should be used. Repetitive use of long sentences and passive voice should be avoided. It is strongly recommended that the text be run through computer spelling and grammar programs. Either British or American spelling is acceptable but must be consistent throughout.

  • Symbols, Units, and Abbreviations

Spaces must be inserted between numbers and units (e.g., 3 kg) and between numbers and mathematical symbols (+, –, ×, =, <, >), but not between numbers and percent symbols (e.g., 45%). Please use SI units. All abbreviations and acronyms should be defined at first mention. Any Latin terms such as et al., in vitro, or in situ should not be italicized.

  • Tables and Figures

All illustrations (photographs, drawings, graphs, etc.), not including tables, must be labeled “Figure.” Figures must be submitted both in the manuscript and as separate files.

All tables and figures must have a caption and/or legend and be numbered (e.g., Table 1, Figure 2), unless there is only one table or figure, in which case it should be labeled “Table” or “Figure” with no numbering. Captions must be written in sentence case (e.g., Macroscopic appearance of the samples.). The font used in the figures should be Times New Roman. All tables and figures, including subfigures, must be numbered consecutively as they are referred to in the text; e.g., Figures 2a, 2b, and 2c should be referred to in the text in that order before Figure 3. Please refer to tables and figures with capitalization and unabbreviated (e.g., “As shown in Figure 2…”, and not “Fig. 2” or “figure 2”).

The resolution of images should not be less than 118 pixels/cm when the width is set to 16 cm. Images must be scanned at 1200 dpi resolution and submitted in jpeg or tiff format. Graphs and diagrams must be drawn with a line weight between 0.5 and 1 point. Graphs and diagrams with a line weight of less than 0.5 point or more than 1 point are not accepted. Scanned or photocopied graphs and diagrams are not accepted.

Tables and figures, including caption, title, column heads, and footnotes, must not exceed 16 × 20 cm and should be no smaller than 8 cm in width. Please do not duplicate information that is already presented in the figures.

  • References

References within the text:

References must be numbered in square brackets within the article and listed in order of their first appearance in the text. All authors should be included in reference lists unless there are 6 or more, in which case only the first 5 should be given, followed by et al. (not italicized). Within the manuscript, cite references by their given number in square brackets. Do not use individual sets of brackets for citation numbers that appear together, e.g., [2,6], not [2], [6]. Do not include personal communications, unpublished data, or other unpublished materials as references, although such material may be inserted as footnotes in the text. In the case of publications in languages other than English, the published English title should be provided if one exists, with an annotation such as “(in Turkish)”. If the publication was not published with an English title, cite the original title only; do not provide a self-translation. Please transliterate the titles of publications published in non-Latin alphabets. Please ensure that author names are given exactly as they were published; e.g., if the names of Turkish authors were originally published with Turkish characters, include the Turkish characters: Güneş et al. [2]. If the original publication did not use Turkish characters, do not include them in your citations: Gunes et al. [2].

Reference list:

The reference list must not contain more than 10, 20, 30, 120, and 60 references for letters to the editor, case reports, short communications, review articles, and research articles, respectively. References should be formatted as Vancouver style as follows (please note the punctuation and capitalization):

Conflicts of Interest:

The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors’ definition of conflicts of interest is as follows: “A conflict of interest exists when professional judgment concerning a primary interest (such as patients’ welfare or the validity of research) may be influenced by a secondary interest (such as financial gain). Perceptions of conflict of interest are as important as actual conflicts of interest.”

A conflict of interest defines the situations that might raise the question of bias, direct or indirect, in the work reported. These situations occur when an individual’s objectivity is potentially compromised by a desire for financial gain, prominence, professional advancement, or a successful outcome. Conflicts can also arise for other reasons, such as personal relationships or rivalries, academic competition, and intellectual beliefs.

Authors should avoid entering into agreements with study sponsors, both for- profit and nonprofit, that interfere with authors’ access to all of the study’s data or that interfere with their ability to analyze and interpret. In order to preserve the reliability of TES JOURNAL, authors are required to disclose all and any potential conflicts of interest when they submit their manuscripts.

Conflicts of interest are the most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and science itself. That is why our editors are working diligently to ensure that what is published in our journals is balanced, evidence-based, and evaluated independently. In this manner, editors and reviewers are required to notify the journal if they find they do not have the necessary expertise to assess the relevant aspects of a manuscript, if they decide that the manuscript is very similar to one in preparation or under consideration by another journal, or if they suspect the identity of the author(s), which raises potential competing or conflicting interests.
