As described in Section 8.2.1.B.9, authors should only submit original work that has neither appeared elsewhere for publication, nor which is under review for another refereed publication. Multiple submission is defined as a given manuscript being concurrently under active consideration by two or more publications. It is at the discretion of each IEEE Organization Unit whether or not to allow multiple submission. Authors shall inform editors of multiple submissions of manuscripts. Authors in violation of these multiple-submission guidelines are subject to corrective actions.

a. At the time of manuscript submission, or during the review of a manuscript, the editor was not informed that the manuscript had been published.

1. In this case, corrective actions that shall be taken are:

(i) A formal warning to offending individual(s)

2. In this case, corrective actions that may also be taken are:

(i) Offending individual(s) prepare and submit apology to the publication editor

(ii) Publication of the offending author’s apology.

3. Discovery of a second offense shall result in:

(i) Another formal warning to offending individuals stating that, if additional offenses are discovered, action a(4) shall occur

(ii) Suspension of publication in the IEEE publication where the offense took place by the offending individual(s) for 1 year of the publication or, if appropriate, the next volume of the conference proceedings.

4. An additional offense following action a(3) of Section 8.2.4.F.3 shall result in suspension of publication privileges in all IEEE Publications from 3 to 5 years as determined by Chair of the Publications Services and Products Board and rejection and return of all papers by the author(s) that are currently in review or in any IEEE publication’s queue (papers may be re-submitted after suspension term has expired).

b. Lack of disclosure to the editor by the author(s) that the manuscript is under active consideration by another publication. Individual publications can choose to either accept or reject outright concurrent consideration of manuscripts. Authors should be made aware of the publication’s policy on this matter.

1. In case authors fail to inform the editor of other consideration of the paper, corrective actions that shall be taken are:

(i) Offending individual(s) will be reminded that the practice is considered inappropriate scholarly practice, referred to Section 8.2.1.B.9 and Section 8.2.7, and notified that repeated offenses could result in correction actions as specified in 8.2.4.F.2.b.

2. Discovery of a second offense shall result in:

(i) Another formal warning to offending individuals stating that, if additional offenses are discovered, action a(3) of Section 8.2.4.F.3 shall occur

3. An additional offense following action b(2) of Section 8.2.4.F.3 shall result in suspension of publication privileges in all IEEE Publications for 1 year and rejection and return of all papers by the author(s) that are currently in review or in any IEEE publication’s queue (papers may be re-submitted after suspension term has expired).

Proposed corrective actions related to level a(4) or b(3) of Section 8.2.4.F.3 shall be approved by the Chair of the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board.
