Prepare the paper for double-blind review
The TALE 2021 peer review process will be double blind. Peer reviewers will not be made aware of
the identities of authors, and authors will not see the reviewers’ identities. For this reason,
author names and institutions must NOT be included in the version of the manuscript submitted
for review. Only the final, camera-ready version should contain author and affiliation
Tips for ensuring double-blind review compliance:
• Remove any identifying information, including author names,
from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymised.
• Ensure the paper itself does not contain any personally identifiable
information (i.e., name, affiliation, email address, phone numbers, IEEE member
• Block out or obscure any affiliation-related identifiers that appear within
figures in the paper.
• Cite papers published by the Author in the text as follows: “[Anonymous,
• Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously
For example, replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “…
has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]”.
• Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references, but limit
self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the
paper being submitted.
• Reference list entries needing to be anonymised should be presented as
follows: “[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for double-blind reviewing.”
• Remove any and all references to/mentions of funding sources.
• Do not include acknowledgments.
