Paper Submission

Submission Guidelines

Presence is an interdisciplinary journal for the dissemination of ideas, experimental results, theoretical models, practical applications, and survey and tutorial material related to teleoperators and virtual environments. Manuscripts are accepted for consideration with the understanding that they represent original material and are not being considered for publication elsewhere.

Submissions may take the form of Articles or Forum contributions.

Articles are scholarly contributions that may take several forms:

  • Research papers describe new concepts, algorithms, devices, or experiments. Authors should compare and contrast the described work to related work in the field, and present documented results.
  • Reports on implemented systems or applications should describe the problems to be solved, developmental difficulties, and implementations.
  • Survey articles should be well-organized presentations of material that is difficult or impossible to find elsewhere. Survey articles must be relevant to the readers of Presence.
  • Tutorial articles should develop to an appropriate level of detail a significant topic that is of interest to, but not well known to, a significant portion of the Presence readership.

In the Forum section of Presence, the editors wish to encourage the presentation of material that may take many forms, including short papers, technical notes, reviews, commentaries, opinion pieces, and letters that explore new concepts or propose new points of view. Forum contributions should be timely and relevant to the readers of Presence. Arguments may be speculative, but should be technically informed, and should include references to the literature as appropriate. Reports of work-in-progress should be set in context with relevant work in the field. Lab reports should provide an overview of work conducted in that laboratory. Correspondence should contribute to an informed and open dialogue and need not be related to work previously published in Presence. In general, review criteria for Forum contributions are less stringent than those for articles.

Prior Publication Policy

When a manuscript is submitted to Presence, it is assumed that it has not been published elsewhere, nor is it being considered for publication elsewhere, in a peer reviewed journal or a commercially available proceedings of a meeting, independent of the language of that publication. This constraint shall remain in effect until the final Presence review process has been completed and the manuscript has been accepted or rejected by Presence. When there is any doubt, authors should include copies of the previously published or submitted manuscript and a detailed statement of differences for consideration by the reviewers and editors along with the Presence submission. To be considered an original work, extended journal manuscripts based on prior publications must contain significant amplification or clarification of the original material (a minimum of 30% new material when compared with the prior publication). Violation of this requirement will automatically result in rejection of the submission to Presence.

Publication Charges

To support the high cost of publication, a page charge of $40 per published page will be mandatory and is assessed at the galley stage. Acceptance of manuscripts for publication is based entirely on technical merit, irrespective of ability to pay the charge.

Submission Instructions

Preferred format for initial submission is electronic (PDF or PostScript with standard 13 fonts). Page format for all text, including abstract, references, footnotes, appendices, and figure captions, is single column, double-spaced, left-justified, minimum 1-inch margins. Text should be prepared in a 12-pt. serif font. Footnotes and appendices should be kept to a minimum. The manuscript should contain, after the title, the names and institutions of all authors, together with an email address for the corresponding author. Figure captions should be presented as a list on a page following text and references. Figures may be embedded in the text for review purposes, but must be separated from the text at the time an accepted manuscript is submitted in its final form.

Some details are as follows:
Abstract should be 150–200 words in length, and one paragraph.
Figures: All text should be legible (e.g., good contrast, and a 10-point font, or larger).
References: The format is as specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), 6th edition. Full citation details should be provided for each reference, the capitalization of all text should be correct, and journal/conference titles should be consistent and not abbreviated.

For manuscripts that report a user experiment or evaluation, the following additional instructions that are derived from the APA Manual should be followed:
• The experiment should be structured with the following headings: Method, Results, and Discussion. Optionally, the last two may be combined into Results and Discussion.
• The Method section should be subdivided into sections that describe the Participants, Materials, and Procedure.
• The term "participants" should be used, rather than "subjects."
• Statistical results should be reported using the conventions that are documented in the APA Manual.
