I have a journal paper that requires me to enter the copyright footer. The solution here partially solved my problem.

However, the content of the footer is

Copyright~\copyright~2017 IEEE. Personal use of this material is permitted. However, permission to use this material for any other purposes must be obtained from the IEEE by sending a request to pubs-permissions@ieee.org.

which is too long to fit in one line. I tried to use line break \\ or \newline, it doesn't work. What is the correct method to break the copyright footer into multiple lines in IEEEtran? Thanks.

    you don't need to add that if you are just submitting to the journal and doing nothing else. They will add it for you.

  • I was provided a checklist for final submission, in which it requires me to do it. Any suggestions?

I have figured it out. The way to do is to use a minipage for the copyright content. One example is as follows:

\makeatletter
\def\ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle{
  \def\@oddfoot{\mycopyrightnotice}
  \def\@evenfoot{}
}
\def\mycopyrightnotice{
  {\footnotesize
  \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
  \centering
  Copyright~\copyright~2017 IEEE. Personal use of this material is permitted. However, permission to use this  \\ 
  material for any other purposes must be obtained from the IEEE by sending a request to pubs-permissions@ieee.org.
  \end{minipage}
  }
}
