The lecture is particularly addressed to new authors with little experience about the publication workflow and principles, and it is focused on the dos and don’ts for successfully publishing a technical paper. It offers an overview of the peer-review process and discusses the ethics and etiquette standards that authors are expected to uphold and that reviewers and editors are looking for. The lecture is based on material used at IEEE training events for authors and volunteers, supplemented by additional material by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE); it discusses general principles followed by various publishers and communities in science and engineering.

Topics include: choice of the publication venue, framing of the contribution with respect to prior art and literature, authorship and acknowledgment, fair reporting of own and others’ results, appropriate disclosure and referencing to own previous work, appropriate description and citing of prior work, plagiarism, duplicate submissions, inappropriate replication, and bibliometric manipulation, author’s responsibilities.


Alessandro Foi received the M.Sc. degree in Mathematics from the Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy, in 2001, the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the Politecnico di Milano in 2005, and the D.Sc.Tech. degree in Signal Processing from Tampere University of Technology, Finland, in 2007. He is a Professor of Signal Processing at Tampere University, Finland, and the Director of Tampere University Imaging Research Platform. His research interests include mathematical and statistical methods for signal processing, functional and harmonic analysis, and computational modeling of the human visual system. His work focuses on spatially adaptive (anisotropic, nonlocal) algorithms for the restoration and enhancement of digital images, on noise modeling for imaging devices, and on the optimal design of statistical transformations for the stabilization, normalization, and analysis of random data. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. He previously served as a Senior Area Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Computational Imaging and as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, the SIAM Journal on Imaging Sciences, and the IEEE Transactions on Computational Imaging. He is a Fellow of the IEEE.
