When submitting your book for publication to IEEE, it should: contain original research that has not been published before; and not be submitted to any other publication while you await a peer review decision.
IEEE recognizes that technical research is often published first with preliminary findings and then in a different publication with fully developed research and conclusions. IEEE supports this evolutionary publishing process provided that:
- Both works undergo standard peer review.
- The more fully developed work contains substantially more technical information than the preliminary work.
- The more fully developed work cites the earlier work and clearly indicates how the works differ.
