I am an associate editor of IEEE Potentials and am posting an open
invitation for manuscripts on some aspect of your research for the
magazine. Potentials is an IEEE publication for students, not by students
(although students are sometimes authors). We accept articles for review
from any parties interested in submitting an article. We publish both
technical and professional development articles. In case you are
interested, I have attached a copy of the Author Guidelines. If you have
any questions, please contact me. Thanks.

                                                              Author Guidelines

Potentials is a quarterly magazine published by The Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), with a current
circulation of approximately 40,000 student (undergraduate and
graduate) and recent graduate members. All articles are reviewed for
technical correctness, and suitability for the intended audience.

To quote the Managing Editor:

        "Potentials is a magazine dedicated to serving the needs of
        up-and-coming (undergrad, grad, and entry-level) engineers.
        Subjects of interest are explored through timely articles.
        We hope to assist those climbing the ladder to success on a
        technical, professional and personal level."

Articles can be submitted in hardcopy or electronic form. The general
guidelines for article preparation are:


1. Manuscripts should be typed and double-spaced.

2. The first page should indicate your name, address, phone number
        and, if you have one, fax number.

3. Please enclose five to six lines about yourself with your

4. Articles can deal with theory, practical applications, or new

5. Technical articles (or any other kind) should not "talk down to"
        nor "be over the heads" of the intended audience. They can be
        tutorial in nature; however, equations usually should be kept to a
        minimum. The articles in Scientific American are good examples of
        the right level.

6. A reference list or bibliography is appropriate (and desirable),
        however, this list should be kept short (never more than 10-12

6. Clarity is very important for artwork submitted. Artwork can be
        black and white glossies or kodachrome slides or even black ink on
        white laser paper.

7. Graphs and diagrams should be clean with solid black type and
        lines on white paper. Graphs and diagrams must reproduce well
        when reduced in size. (Photocopies taken from books must include
        book title, publisher, page number and diagram label.)

8. Based on the number of published pages and illustrations you plan,
        locate the corresponding figure for the approximate number of
        words your manuscript should be.

4 X X 4000 3700 3300 3000 2650

NOTE: Whenever an "X" appears that number of illustrations is usually
not appropriate for that number of pages.

9. Manuscripts considered too long will be shortened.


1. Follow hardcopy preparations.

2. All discs must be accompanied by a hard copy version of the

3. We can accept DOS text file (ASCII), Wordperfect 5.1 or Microsoft
        Word (Mac compatible, 3.5 inch disc).

Submitted manuscripts are reviewed by student members, members,
Potentials' staff, expert reviewers and others as appropriate. Review
criteria include technical correctness, readability, and suitability to
the readership.


Please send three copies of your manuscript (or one copy and disk) to:
