Author Guidelines

PAPER PREPARATION

 1. Choose a right title

The title should be very specific, not too broad and not too long. The title should be substantially different from others.

AVOID GENERAL TITLES,  e.g., “Research on data mining”, “Contributions to Information Theory”, “Some research on job assignment in cluster computing”, "On the collaborative agents" or “A new framework for distributed computing”.

2. Write a concise abstract and 3-5 keywords

An abstract should tell:
• Motivation: Why do we care about the problem and the results?
• Problem statement: What problem is the paper trying to solve and what is the scope of the work?
• Approach: What was done to solve the problem?
• Results: What is the answer to the problem?
• Conclusions: What implications does the answer imply?
A good hint is pack each of these part into one sentence.

3. Organization of your paper

  • Plan your sections and subsections. Use a top-down writing method. Use a sentence to represent the points (paragraphs) in each subsections.
  • Writing details: expand a sentence in the sketch into a paragraph.
  • Keep a logical flow from section to section, paragraph to paragraph, and sentence to sentence.

4. Introduction


An Introduction should:

  • Establish a territory: bring out the importance of the subject; make general statements about the subject; present an overview on current research on the subject
  • Establish a niche: oppose an existing assumption; reveal a research gap; formulate a research question; continue a tradition, or propose a completely new approach
  • Occupy the niche: sketch the intent of the own work; outline important characteristics and results of your own work; give a brief outlook on the structure of the paper

5. Related work and list of references

Use a proper selection of references. Show your knowledge
in the related area. Give credit to other researchers (reviewers are usually chosen from the references).
Cite good quality work, particularly when citing your own work, and up to date work. Related work should be organized to serve your topic. Emphasize on the significance and originality of your work.

6. Your conclusions

A research paper should be circular in arguments, i.e., the conclusion should return to the opening, and examine the original purpose in the light of the research presented.
Assuming that you have decided where to submit, and your paper is ready.

7. Peer review  workflow

Most probably, your paper will be rejected, or conditionally accepted after a major review. It is almost impossible to have your paper accepted without any modification suggested...

Even an acceptance “with minor modifications” is rare.
The best scientists get rejected and/or have to make major revisions. It is unreasonable to get defensive, unless it is really called for. You should address EVERY aspect of the reviewers concerns.

Make it obvious to the reviewer through the Summary of Changes and the revised manuscript itself of the changes
you have made. Do not add new science unless it is called for.
A good referee report is immensely valuable, even if it tears your paper apart.

Remember, each report was prepared without charge by someone whose time you could not buy. All the errors found are things you can correct before publication. Appreciate referee reports, and make use of them. An author who feels insulted and ignores referee reports wastes an invaluable resource and the referees’ time.
Finally, we have to remember what you put in the literature is your scientific legacy after all else is gone.

8.  Plagiarism and innovation

According to the IJCCC Author Guidelines, submissions to IJCCC must represent original material:
“Papers are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has been neither submitted to, nor published in, another journal or conference.

If it is determined that a paper has already appeared in anything more than a conference proceeding, or appears in or will appear in any other publication before the editorial process at IJCCC is completed, the paper will be automatically rejected.
Papers previously published in conference proceedings, digests, preprints, or records are eligible for consideration provided that the papers have undergone substantial revision, and
that the author informs the IJCCC editor at the time of submission.
Concurrent submission to IJCCC and other publications is viewed as a serious breach of ethics and, if detected, will result in immediate rejection of the submission.

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. Topics

    To differentiate from other similar journals, the editorial policy of IJCCC encourages the submission of ORIGINAL RESEARCH PAPERS (not survey) that focus on the integration of the 3 "C" (Computing, Communication, Control).

    In particular the following topics are expected to be addressed by authors:

    T1. Integrated solutions in computer-based control and communications;
    T2. Computational intelligence methods (with particular emphasis on fuzzy logic-based methods, ANN, evolutionary computing, collective/swarm intelligence);
    T3. Advanced decision support systems (with particular emphasis on the usage of combined solvers and/or web technologies).

    The papers out  of these topics will be REJECTED.

  2. Concurrent/Duplicate Submission

    This journal is a member of, and subscribes to the principles of, the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

    Papers are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has been neither submitted to, nor published in, another journal or conference. If it is determined that a paper has already appeared in anything more than a conference proceeding, or appears in or will appear in any other publication before the editorial process at IJCCC is completed, the paper will be  REJECTED.

  3. Initial submission (manuscript for review)

    The manuscript can be write direct in LaTex by the IJCCC template: Click here to download Template

    OR

    in MS Word format (for evaluation only) with the following specifications: paper A4, font TNR 12p, single column.

    The manuscript must be uploaded online in PDF format only (< 30 MB).

     The manuscripts edited in two columns will be REJECTED.

  4. Length of the manuscript

    Beginning No.2/2014 the number of pages of one article is 8-16 (one column, A4).

     The manuscripts edited in two column format or in out of the accepted limits of 8-16  pages will be  REJECTED.

  5. Institutional affiliation=institutional e-mail address

    Your IP address will be registered for anti-spam reasons.

    You must enter the full name of the corresponding author, his/her institutional affiliation and  his/her e-mail (PLEASE USE AN INSTITUTIONAL EMAIL ADDRESS RATHER THAN GMAIL, YAHOO, ETC.), we will REJECT submissions that do not have these. You can update your profile before submission.

     The manuscripts submited by a corresponding author without a valid institutional e-mail address will be  REJECTED.

  6. Final submission (for accepted paper for publication):

    The papers must be prepared using a LaTeX typesetting system.  Click here to download Template

    This file you will find instructions that will help you prepare the source file. Please, read carefully those instructions. (We are using MiKTeX 2.9).

    Any graphics or pictures must be saved in Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) format (a utility for converting jpeg images to PostScript Level 2 or 3 files (without uncompressing the images) is Jpeg2Ps which is freely available here.
