Submission of a manuscript to the Journal implies that no part of the manuscript has been previously published in any language in a permanent archive, or the whole manuscript or any part of the manuscript is being considered for publication by another journal, or it violates anyone's copyrights or any other rights. Reproduction of tables and figures from previously published articles must accompany written permission from the copyright holder(s) and should be provided at the time of manuscript submission. Submission of preliminary or inconclusive data is strongly discouraged. However, authors reporting high-impact conclusive preliminary data leading to the opening of new research fields are welcomed. Authors should be prepared to make available any article cited within the references as in press if requested by the editorial office.
The corresponding author is responsible for obtaining permission for manuscript submission from all co-authors, and for ensuring that all co-authors are in complete agreement with the contents of the manuscript and its authorship. It is also assumed that authors have complied with all ethical and privacy guidelines and/or legislation concerning the submitted work particularly related to the use of human or animal subjects and cloning research. If the work is multidisciplinary, all collaborators must ensure that they have appropriate measures in place to check the accuracy of their part of the data. The corresponding/senior author has the overall responsibility for the accuracy of the data presented in the manuscript. However, each author also has direct responsibility for the contents of the paper. Editors have the right to accept or reject an article, solely on merit.
Submission of a manuscript to the Journal implies that the author(s) fully agree to and understand the terms and conditions, and accept the policies of the Journal described under the Information for Authors at the time of manuscript submission.
The practice of peer review is to ensure that a good paper is published (single-blind review).
Manuscript Submissions: Authors must submit manuscripts to International Journal of Innovative Computing in electronic form through this website.
After the submission has entered our tracking system, the corresponding author receives an e-mail acknowledging receipt and providing the manuscript number. Authors are asked to include the manuscript number in all correspondence regarding the paper.
Before publication, each manuscript submitted to the Journal undergoes a thorough and rigorous peer-review. Final acceptance for all manuscripts is based on quality, impact, and originality of research. We aim to complete the whole review process within 21 days. To expedite the review process, authors are encouraged to suggest up to six expert reviewers (provide full contact details and email addresses) for their manuscript and may also request a specific individual to be excluded from the review process (based on conflict of interest). Suggested reviewers should not be past or present research collaborators of any of the authors and should not be from the author's host institutions. The Editors will give consideration to the author's suggestions; however, their decision to choose or exclude a reviewer is independent of these suggestions and is final.
Manuscript review is undertaken in the following steps:
Only under exceptional circumstances, if the authors have compelling reasons that their manuscript merits immediate publication, it is possible to arrange a rapid review of the manuscript within 5 working days. Please make a case for this in the cover letter.
Members of the Editorial Board occasionally receive submissions directly from authors. In such cases, the editor will ask the author to resubmit the paper to the office through our website. This procedure ensures that the office will have the opportunity to access the manuscript for proper processing and tracking throughout the review process.
Papers authored by Editorial Board members:
Papers authored by Editorial Board members are subject to the same anonymous peer review process as other papers. Submissions to the journal authored by the CE will be directed to two other editors, who will oversee the review process.
Status Changes. Once the Review Editor has obtained reviewer reports and made a decision on a manuscript, the author receives an email informing him/her of the decision. Anonymous reviewer reports are generally included, along with the AE decision. The various status designations used by the office are discussed below. Note the distinctions among the following statuses: rejected, in revision, accepted pending minor revision.
The author receives reviewer reports as part of the editor's e-mail requesting revisions. The e-mail contains a link that the author may use to submit the revised version directly into our web-based system. Also, a deadline of no longer than six months for the revision will be stated.
Reports. Every three months, the CE sends the managing Editors (ME) and AE a report showing all papers in process, all papers assigned to each AE, and papers that have remained in one status for an unusually long time.Â Status updates on all papers that have been in review for three months or longer (flagged) have to be prepared by the AEs. The AE is to contact the reviewer to see if he intends to complete the review. If possible, the editor should indicate approximately when the review will be completed. The CE and ME will decide if these papers should be sent to other reviewers. If a paper has gone back to an author for revision (C or PA) and the editor has not received the revision though six months have passed, the AE is to contact the author to see if the author intends to complete the revision.
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
