The on-line submission system, electronic peer review and production make the process of publishing your article very simple, fast and efficient. Usually, it takes 3 to 6 Days from the moment you finished your submission and a response is generated by the reviewing system. If your paper is accepted, it may take up to 1 months before it will be printed (this period may be longer if you delay the response to observations made by our reviewers). The current average review time, measured from the moment the submission is completed and a decision is made, is about 107 days.
Quality and high standards of peer review
We have a high standard of peer review. A strong Editorial Board help us with policy and decision-making, and in some cases help with choosing referees and reviewing manuscripts.
» High visibility and promotion of your articles
The Open Access policy ensures high visibility and maximum exposure of your research work as anyone with online access can read your article. The printed version of the journal is distributed to university libraries all over the world. Articles published in Journals are widely promoted through e-mail messages, table of contents, e-mail alerts, feeds, and press releases to the general and scientific press, resulting in an increasing level of visibility for each article.
PEER REVIEWING PROCESS
The submitted papers are subject of a double blinded peer review process, in order for the Editorial Board to select for publishing the articles meeting the highest possible standards in electrical engineering and computer science. The reviewers’ identities are not disclosed to the authors, nor are the authors’ identities disclosed to the reviewers.
When a manuscript is submitted to Journal, it undergoes an initial prescreening by the Editorial Board in order to determine whether or not the paper fits the scope of the Journal. If the Editorial Board feels the manuscript meets the journal’s minimum standards for publication, the paper then enters a blind reviewing process.
In the main reviewing phase, the Executive Editor or a designated editorial board member sends the received papers, without the name and affiliation of the authors, to two experts in the field, by using the on-line web-based paper management system. The electronic evaluation form used by reviewers contains a checklist in order to help referees to cover all aspects that can decide the publication. In the final section of the evaluation form, the reviewers must include observations and suggestions for improvement that are sent to the authors, without the names of the reviewers.
All the reviewers of a paper remain anonymous to the authors and act independently before, during and after the evaluation process. They have different affiliation, are usually located in different countries, and they are not aware of each other’s identities. If the decisions of the two reviewers are not the same (accept / reject), the paper is sent to a third reviewer.
If the suggestions of reviewers for improving the paper are rejected by the author, the Editor-in-chief invites the author to reply to reviewers with the respect of anonymity, using the on-line support interface. Observing the dialogue, the Editor-in-chief may send the paper to additional reviewers.
The final decision for publication is done by the Editor-in-Chief based on the scrutiny of reviewers and the scope of the journal.
