Frequently Asked Questions

Q.    How do I enter my review of a manuscript?
A.    Your Reviewer Center contains a list of all manuscripts you are responsible for reviewing. At the far right under the Corresponding Author's name is a button named "Review". Clicking this button will bring you to a screen entitled "Instructions for Reviewers." Follow the prompts given and enter your scores and review of the manuscript were indicated.
      
Q.    What is the difference between the different boxes for the comments?
A.    There are two boxes that can be used for comments in the review form. The comments in the first box will only go to the Editor. If there are comments that you want the author to see, they should be typed/copied into the comments for the author box.
      
Q.    I want to upload a review I have formatted in Word or other word processing programs.
A.    Manuscript Central does have the capability to accept formatted reviews. For anonymity reason, it is better to use plain text or PDF format (with author's name removed from the file property).
      
Q.    I want a certificate for my contributions as a reviewer to IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology.
A.    IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology is currently partnered with Publons to provide recognition for its reviewers. All certificates for reviewers must be taken from Publons exclusively, i.e. the administration and editorial team will not provide additional certificates.
