All text must be formatted in a two-column layout. Columns should be 3-1/4 inches (8.25 cm) broad, with a spacing of 5/16 inch (0.8 cm) between them. The text should be completely justified. In Word files, a format sheet with margins and positioning recommendations is supplied. You do not need to use it, but it helps you maintain column width and spacing.
Headings should be used to identify major sections of your paper and they should be given titles, preferably words that describe the topic being discussed or presented. These headings will help readers find specific information more easily. They also serve as labels for fonts and illustrations, which makes them important for ensuring that all parts of your paper are clear and readable.
Authors should be aware of the space limitations on most publications when preparing their papers. Therefore, they should not write longer than needs be nor make heavy use of bold, italic or colored text styles. If necessary, they should use word processing tools such as track changes or strikethrough/overline characters to reduce the size of their texts.
Please follow these guidelines when writing your paper in the IEEE format.

To format the document, use these general guidelines: Set your paper's top, bottom, and side margins to 1 inch. Throughout your article, use double-spaced text.

The basic structure of a research paper is three equal parts: an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. The introduction should include a brief overview of the topic discussed in the paper along with a statement of the question or questions you intend to answer. Note that this section can be revised and updated as needed during the writing process. The body of the paper includes all of the information necessary to answer the question(s) presented in the introduction. This part must be factual and not subjective. Finally, the conclusion restates the main ideas in a clear and concise manner.
Each paragraph in the body of the paper should have a clear title identifying its subject matter. Start every paragraph with a capital letter. End every paragraph with a full stop/period. Use quotations within the text to highlight key words or phrases in the source material.
References are important elements in any research paper. References provide support for the facts and opinions expressed in your paper. They also help readers find additional resources if they are interested in pursuing topics outside of your control.
