The IJISAE is a peer reviewed journal which publishes research papers, reviews as well as short research communications, essays, and book reviews. Special issues can be arranged by contacting the Editor.

Peer Review Process 

  • All submissions will be double blind peer reviewed.
  • All papers are expected to have original content. They should not have been previously published, nor be under simultaneous consideration by another academic journal.
  • Prior to the sending out to refrees, editors check that the paper fits with the mission statement of the journal.
  • The journal seeks minimum two independent refrees. All submissions are subject to a double blind peer review; the identity of both the reviewer and author are always concealed from both parties. If one of refrees gives a negative feedback on a paper, the paper is sent to another refree. If the paper takes again a negative feedback from the new refree, this means that the paper will not be accepted to the journal.
  • All submitted papers and refree reports are archived by IJISAE. Submissions whether they are published or not are not returned. 
  • The editorial board decides to publish a paper in the journal according to refree reports. If one of refrees offer some corrections to a submitted paper, the paper is sent back to the author. It is required for authors to make corrections in their papers within the prescribed time.
  • Authors who want to give up publishing their paper in IJISAE after the submission have to apply to the editorial board in written.    
  • Papers out of IJISAE’s writing and style guidelines are not received for consideration.
  • Authors are responsible from the writing quality of their papers.
  • IJISAE will not pay any copyright fee to authors.

Open Access (OA) provides unlimited access and reuse opportunities which make research publications freely available online. The open access therefore creates the network for reaching the widest possible audience, sharing the entire works and building upon them. The main goal of IJISAE is to contribute the culture of scientific publications in the fields of Intelligent Systems and Applications in Engineering. 

Besides regarding that our publisher group IJISAE is included in BOAI (Budapest Open Access Initiative), IJISAE also supports the definition of ''Open Access'' according to BOAI which is:

Its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself.
