To reduce financial burden on authors and members, increase consistency, and to clarify distinctions between the two Transactions and the new RA-Letters, the page overlength policy will be revised as follows:
For IEEE Transactions on Automation Science & Engineering (T-ASE) and IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) papers submitted after 20 November 2015, there will be no overlength charges for the first 12 pages of Regular papers nor the first 6 pages of Short papers. Overlength charges will apply to any pages between 13-20 of Regular papers and to pages 7 or 8 of Short papers. T-ASE and T-RO Regular papers cannot exceed 20 pages and Short papers cannot exceed 8 pages.
The IEEE Robotics & Automation Letters (RA-L) overlength policy is the same as that for Short Transactions papers above.
For the IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine (RAM), there are no overlength charges for the first 9 pages but page charges will apply to any pages between 10-16.
