IEEE HISTORY CENTER PRESS
AUTHOR CHECKLIST AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

The IEEE History Center Press is interested in working with authors to publish books on the history of electrical and computing-related technologies. The IHC Press works with Amazon.com to publish handsome print-on-demand trade paperback and Kindle® versions.  The IHC Press works with a professional indexer with experience in indexing scientific and technological books to prepare an index for your work. (Please note that the IEEE History Press does not publish books on current topics in Electrical Engineering). If you would like your work to be considered for publication by the IEEE History Center, please send the complete manuscript to ieee-history@ieee.org   for consideration.

The History Center Press suggests following the Chicago Manual of Style, however, it is not firmly committed to a particular style. Clarity is the objective. There are a few stylistic preferences:

Dates in international format (e.g. 22 July 2013).

Spell out numbers less than 1000.

Use "more than" or "fewer than" for numbers, rather than "over" or "under" ("More than one hundred days...")

Use SI units, or English units accompanied by their SI equivalents.
