Title of Tutorial: Preparing and Reviewing Manuscripts for IEEE Journal Publications: IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion

This tutorial aims at helping the IEEE UKRCON-2017 attendees interested in publishing or reviewing for IEEE journals to become more successful authors and productive reviewers. The current Editor-In-Chief (EIC) of the IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion will present this tutorial and discuss the scope and emphasis of journals in IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) to help prospective authors select the most appropriate venue for publishing their work. After an overview of journal’s history and current status, the EIC will further discuss the review process from initial submission to actual publication, and explain the criteria and considerations behind the forms and questions used in the review process. The EIC will also share best practices and common mistakes from his experience of working with authors as well as reviewers, and discuss frequently asked questions, such as the relationship to conference publications, importance of experimental validation, and potential causes for plagiarism.

Presenter’ Bio:
Dr. Juri Jatskevich received the Electrical Engineering Degree (B.S.E.E.) from Ukrainian National Agricultural University, Kyiv, in 1994. He received the M.S.E.E. and the Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA, in 1997 and 1999, respectively. He is presently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
Dr. Jatskevich is active in IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), Circuits and Systems Society (CAS), and Power Electronics Society (PELS), and is an IEEE Fellow for contributions to modeling of electric machines and switching converters. He has authored/co-authors over 80 journal articles and over 100 conference papers. He chaired the IEEE CAS Power Systems & Power Electronic Circuits Technical Committee in 2009-2010. He has served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics for the period 2008 – 2013, and is presently the Editor-In-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion, and Editor of IEEE Power Engineering Letters. He was the general chair of the Sixteenth IEEE Workshop on Control and Modeling for Power Electronics (COMPEL 2015), which is a flagship event in Power Electronics society. He is also chairing the IEEE Task Force on Dynamic Average Modeling, under Working Group on Modeling and Analysis of System Transients Using Digital Programs. His research interests include power electronic systems, electrical machines and drives, modeling and simulation of electromagnetic transients.
