IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation


IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation has moved a web-based submission and review system --- ManuscriptCentral. The journal will only consider online submissions through http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tevc-ieee/. Paper and email submissions are not considered any more.

All correspondence concerning submissions is between the author, Editor in Chief and Editorial Assistant. To submit your paper for consideration, visit the web submission system (Manuscript Central) found at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tevc-ieee/. Here you can create a new account or use an existing one if you have one, and submit a first draft of a new manuscript. Use ample margins on all sides, and please ensure that your uploaded file prints without error on both 8.5 x 11 inch and A4 paper. This TRANSACTIONS is devoted primarily to archival reports of work that have not been published elsewhere. Specifically, conference records and book chapters that have been published previously are not acceptable unless and until they have been enhanced significantly. In special circumstances or on exceptional occasions, the editor may deem a contribution noteworthy enough to be exempted from this policy. Ensure that in "Comments to Editor-in-Chief" you state that the work being submitted has not been published elsewhere, nor is it under review currently by another publication.
