Student Research Submission Instructions

You are here

When submitting the article on the eJournal website and setting the Manuscript Information, select Student Research from the Area of Specialty dropdown list at the bottom.

General guidelines for the content of the highlight are as follows:

1.      A section describing the problem of interest with motivations
2.      A section summarizing past research and current state of the art
3.      A section describing the student’s contributions to the field
4.      A photo or illustration related to the research
5.      A student background/biography with photo

This list, however, does not dictate a formal structure.   The author should feel free to organize his or her highlight as they see fit, with the exception of the placement of the biography.

The highlight should be able to be understood by a non-expert across the different fields of AESS. Therefore, student authors are advised to minimize or altogether eliminate the use of complicated equations and delving into overly technical detail. If equations are required to explain part of the research, 2 or 3 equations should suffice, but no more.  This is not a technical paper.

These systems include but are not limited to navigation, avionics, mobile electric power and electronics, radar, sonar, telemetry, military, law-enforcement, automatic test, simulators, and command and control."
