Information for Authors

1. Submissions

The International Journal of Innovative Computing, Information and Control (IJICIC) is welcoming contributions related with the journal's scope. In general, decisions will be made after peer-review, within 3 months of receipt. Accepted articles will generally be published within 9 months thereafter.

Manuscripts (in a single PDF, PDF only) should be submitted to the IJICIC Submission System:

2. Types of Submissions

IJICIC considers two types of submissions:

Full Papers - Detailed discussion involving new research, applications or developments (up to 20 printed pages, or approved by Editor-in-Chief otherwise);
Short Papers - Brief presentations of new technical concepts and developments (up to 8 printed pages, or approved by Editor-in-Chief otherwise).

3. Peer Review Process

Authors have the full responsibility to ensure that manuscripts submitted to IJICIC have not been published, have not been copyrighted, and will not be submitted or published elsewhere in English or any other language. The author(s) agrees that the copyright (copyright-form) for the article will be transferred to the publisher upon acceptance. The Editors reserve the right to decline the submitted manuscript without review, if the works reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the journal, or of limited interest to th e target audience. The Editor seeks advice from experts in the appropriate field. All manuscripts are refereed by a minimum of two reviewers, or three in case of inconsistent recommendations. The final decision of acceptance will be made by Executive Editor or, in case of conflict, by the Editor-in-Chief.

4. Manuscript Layout

Manuscripts should be typewritten in English on one side only with wide margins on high quality paper using single spacing throughout. Each page of the manuscript should be numbered. The front page should contain the article title, author's name and affiliation, abstract and keywords. The abstract should not exceed 200 words and should be intelligible to general readers without recourse to the main text. A list of notation should be avoided, but new notation and departures from standard use should be explained in text.

Articles should, in general, begin with an introduction which adequately covers the literature and scope of the paper. Each section in the paper should be numbered. Each article should have, in general, a conclusion or discussion section. Any appendices should follow the Reference section.

5. Illustrations

Proper figure preparation is essential for optimum reproduction of line drawing and photograph. Figures and Tables should be placed as part of the text and should be numbered.

6. References

References should be listed at the end of the main text. All in-text citations (references) should be listed in order, that is, [1], [3,4], [6-9], etc. In the References, each citation should be written in the order of appearance in the text. The normal form of listed references is author's initials, surname; article title; journal name (abbreviated in accordance with the World List of Scientific Periodicals, 4th edn); volume number; issue number; page numbers; year.

7. Payment/Offprint

After a manuscript has been accepted for publication, the author (or the author's institution or company) will be approached with a kind request to pay a reasonable charge to cover part of the cost of publication. This is widely used throughout the scientific publishing community, and is widely accepted. The charge amount for each accepted article is JPY96,000 (within 12 pages) and excess page fee is JPY8,000 per extra page, which will take effect from June 1, 2022. The author will receive a free copy of the journal with a CD containing his/her paper after the page charge is honored. Detailed instructions for the payments will accompany the Acceptance Notice or the proofs. Further offprint can be ordered at extra cost at the proof stage.

In preparing the paper, please use the IJICIC style files for submission (LaTex: ijicic.cls, ijicic-sample; Word with PDF: ijicic-sample), and ensure that all the macros used to write your paper accompany the manuscript. If you have any questions about the use of this file in preparing your paper, please contact the editorial office. Please follow all the usual instructions to authors as detailed above.
