Peer Review Process

The Matics accepts the submission of articles on any topic within the field of Computer Science and Information Technology. Submitted articles are evaluated on the basis of their contribution to the knowledge and practice Computer Science and on methodology, theoretical and empirical contribution, and style. Submitted articles will in general be reviewed by two external reviewers chosen for their knowledge in specific sub-areas of Computer Science and Information Technology. To be published in this Journal, a paper should meet general criterias:

  • Provides strong evidence for its conclusions.
  • Should be a research result or literature studies in the field.
  • Ideally, interesting to researchers in Computer Science and Information Technology  and other related disciplines.

The paper submitted in the journal must be original, unpublished work, and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Every paper submitted will be scanned for plagiarism before it is sent to the reviewer.

In general, to be acceptable, a paper should represent an advance in understanding likely to influence thinking in the field. There should be a discernible reason why the work deserves the visibility of publication in a Matics journal rather than the best of the specialist journals.
