Author Toolkit

Who Presents:

Extended Abstract: Not Peer-Reviewed
Extended abstracts should be submitted by those authors not interested in receiving the recognition of a peer reviewed paper. Authors submitting an extended abstract will receive general comments to improve the final paper published in the SEMI-THERM symposium but it will not be considered as a peered reviewed publication. The extended abstract should include an abstract, overall summary, sample figures, sample results and several references. It does not need to be a completed manuscript. Please refer to an example of an extended abstract on this page.

Should the authors be interested in pursuing publication in a peer reviewed journal at a later time, such as the IEEE Component Packaging and Manufacturing Technology (CPMT), SEMI-THERM reviewers would be available to provide reviews that would allow the authors to pursue publication in the CPMT. However, there is no implied guarantee that the paper would be accepted by the CPMT.

Peer Reviewed Paper
Peer reviewed papers should be submitted as a completed manuscript. They should include all elements of a completed technical paper including an abstract, introduction, analysis, discussion of results, conclusions and a complete list of references. Since it is a completed paper, SEMI-THERM reviewers will provide feedback on the paper making suggestions for improving its quality. Therefore, when the paper is published in the SEMI-THERM symposium, it is considered a peer reviewed paper. Please refer to an example on this page for a peer reviewed paper.

When submitting your paper to SEMI-THERM, please indicate whether you are submitting an extended abstract or a peer reviewed paper, otherwise known as a draft paper on the submission website.
