The answer depends on your publication’s page charge policy, including any over length charges. To find out this information, download “Instructions for Authors on Reprints and Special Charges
” (PDF, 65 KB). It also depends on how many reprints you order, and of course any color charges if you have figures in your paper that you choose to have printed in color.
If your journal has over length page charges, then you will need to estimate the number of pages in your paper. The number of pages can be estimated two ways: counting all the pages in your submitted work (including figures, pages of text, pages of figure captions, references, bios, author photos, etc.) and divide the total by 3. Or, you can use the IEEE style template to preformat your work, including figures and tables, in order to give you a more accurate page estimate.
