Mini-Special Issue of the MTT
In the framework of the INMMiC 2023, we are organizing a mini Special Issue (SI) of the Transactions of Microwave Theory and Techniques. Therefore, we invite you to submit your contribution related to your INMMiC 2023 paper through the ScholarOne Manuscript Central website, in exactly the same way as any other regular MTT Transactions’ submission. When you submit your article, you will be asked several questions, one is about the manuscript type. In this case, you should select “2023 INMMIC mini-special issue”.
When you prepare your manuscript you should consult the Instructions for Authors (https://www.mtt.org/author-information-transactions) and follow the T-MTT Word or LaTex Templates available there. Papers not following these templates cannot be accepted into the peer review process.
Please be aware, that your contribution should be prepared as any other regular T-MTT paper, and they will be evaluated via the same peer-review process. The quality of your contribution must meet the level required for a publication at the MTT Transactions.
Since your contribution is an expanded version of a conference paper, it is important to note, that, according to the authors’ instructions, you must meet the following requirement:
Since your contribution is an expanded version of your conference paper, it is important to note that, according to the instructions for authors, you must meet the following requirement:
“5. You must reference your own work, especially recent journal/conference publications. Discuss your related publications in the introduction and distinguish the new results you present in your current manuscript from those found in your previous publications. While there is not a specific criteria that must be met, such as 60% new technical material, the reviewers are asked to determine if the paper provides “sufficient new technical material to justify a new paper” when compared to all previously published papers. This standard must be met by all papers, including papers that are submitted to conference special issues. Note that longer introductions and lists of references do not qualify as “technical material.” It is acceptable to repeat some results to properly explain the concept and to create a self-contained paper for the reader, but this should be done only when necessary. Please attach pdf files of the previous papers.”
Because of the time required for a second review cycle, papers receiving a major revision decision are not guaranteed to be published in the mini-SI, but may be published in a subsequent regular issue if, in the end, the paper is accepted.
In the unlikely event that the mini-Special Issue does not have enough accepted papers, it will be canceled and its accepted papers will be scheduled for publication in subsequent regular issues of the MTT Transactions.
Other submission instructions:
(1) In the pull-down menu for “Manuscript Type”, please select “INMMiC 2023 Mini-Special Issue”.
(2) Please note that only papers falling in the topics of interest of the MTT Transactions (http://www.mtt.org/author-information-transactions) will be considered.
(3) The conference(s) paper(s) must be included along with the submission as a supplementary file.
(4) Discuss the expansion over the conference paper(s) in the Introduction (very important).
(5) The following note should be added to the footnote on the first page of the paper: “This paper is an expanded version from the International Workshop on Nonlinear Microwave and Millimetre-Wave Circuits, Aveiro, Portugal, November 8-10, 2023.”
Submission deadline: 8 January 2024
