ITS Editorial Review Board
Abstract: This is the third edition of a handbook intended to help Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) staff produce reports and papers in accordance with ITS, National Telecommunications and Information Administration, Department of Commerce, and Federal Government standards. It is based on the “ITS Publications Handbook,” last updated in 2008, and the “Quick Reference Guide to ITS Publications,” published in 1993. Volume I, “Policies,” describes policies applicable to the preparation and quality review of manuscripts for publication and discusses policy issues such as the use of commercial names in ITS publications. Volume II, “Style Guide,” provides guidelines for the publication of documents so that their appearance is uniform, consistent, and appropriately formal. Templates and best practices formerly included in Volume III have been included in a set of procedures developed to support this handbook.
