1 ieee Standards Style Manual 1. Overview This Manual establishes preferred Style for the preparation of proposed ieee Standards . ieee Standards Project Editors are available for advice and assistance throughout this process. Please note that many of the suggested guidelines can be adapted and restructured to suit the needs of a particular group; however, it is strongly recommended that working groups consult with ieee Standards Project Editors before deviating from this Style . This Manual is not intended to be a guide to the procedural development of Recommended man- uals on this subject are the ieee -SA Standards Board Bylaws [B3]2, the ieee -SA Standards Companion [B4], and the ieee -SA Standards Operations Manual [B5], also published by the ieee Standards Depart- For examples of ieee Standards Style of drafts, please see Annex B.
2 An example amendment can be found in Annex C. 2. References The following Standards shall be used, when applicable, in preparing manuscripts. When the following stan- dards are superseded by an approved revision, the revision shall apply. ANSI (Reaff 1989), American National Standard Graphic Symbols for Electrical Wiring and Layout Diagrams Used in Architecture and Building ANSI , American National Standard Letter Symbols for Units of Measurement (SI Units, Cus- tomary Inch-Pound Units, and Certain Other Units). ANSI , American National Standard for Mathematical Signs and Symbols for Use in Physical Sciences and Technology. ANSI , American National Standard for Letter Symbols and Abbreviations for Quantities Used in Acoustics. 1 While this Manual uses the term standard, its rules apply generically to guides and recommended practices as well.

Responsibilities of the sponsor and working group chair The sponsor of each project shall be responsible for reviewing the final draft to ensure that it is the complete and accurate document approved by the balloting group, that it meets the requirements of this Manual , and that it is ready to be submitted to the ieee -SA Standards Board.
5 When approved by the ieee -SA Standards Board, the draft will be prepared for publication by the ieee Standards Project Editor. The sponsor or a designated representative (usually the working group technical editor or chair) shall serve as the liaison between the working group and the ieee Standards Project Editor to answer questions and to review the document when it is in its final stages of production to ensure that editorial changes have not affected the technical content of the standard. 4. Items to submit to the ieee . The sponsor of an ieee Standards project shall be responsible for providing the ieee -SA Standards Board with a complete, technically accurate draft of the proposed standard (in paper copy and electronic forms). that meets the requirements of this Manual for content, Style , and legibility.
6 A cover letter also shall be sub- mitted that states the software application/program (including version number) used to create the document, order of files on the disk, etc. (See for further information on electronic submittal.) If applicable, written permission for any copyrighted material (text, figures, or tables obtained from an outside source) used within a project shall be submitted to the ieee -SA Standards Board as well (see ). Prior to balloting, the sponsor is encouraged to submit a near-ready draft to an ieee Standards Project Edi- tor for editorial review. Project Editors are also available for questions that arise as the draft is prepared. 5 ieee publications are available from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 445 Hoes Lane, Box 1331, Piscataway, NJ 08855-1331, USA ( ).
