The editorial board is participating in a growing community of Similarity Check System's users in order to ensure that the content published is original and trustworthy. Similarity Check is a medium that allows for comprehensive manuscripts screening, aimed to eliminate plagiarism and provide a high standard and quality peer-review process.
Submission of a manuscript to the journal signifies that work has not been previously published and that it has not been submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere.
Submitted manuscripts are subject to a peer-review procedure. The reviewing is made by the Editorial Board, substantially supported by a pool of additional reviewers (announcedin the journal). The decision on whether or not to accept the paper is made by the Editorial board.
The author(s) of accepted papers will receive a LICENSE TO PUBLISH to sign and send it to the Editorial office.
The journal publishes 4 regular issues and some additional special thematic issues (no more than two) per annum.
The normal review period is about 6 months. The accepted papers are published in the next 1-2 months after the reviewing period.
The regular papers do not have article processing charges.
A limited number of papers (up to 2-3 in an issue) are processed by paid fast-track mode in order to publish the paper in the next journal issue (if submitted at least 1 month before publication date). The fee for fast-track processing is 450 EURO per paper; it is paid only if a submitted paper is positively reviewed.
Special thematic issues
The additional thematic issues are intended to present extended variants of selected papers presented at international scientific events. The event organizers send to CIT Editor-in-Chief (firstname.lastname@example.org) a proposal for publishing a thematic special issue that contains the proposed title of the issue, the event description (link), names and detailed CV’s of proposed guest editors and expected numbers of papers in the issue. The special issues must contain 8-20 papers with the paper length of 10-15 pages (up to 200-250 pages in total). The selected papers should be written by authors from different countries and no more than two papers with the same author(s) are allowed to be included into the special issue.
The cost for publishing a special thematic issue is: 300 EURO per paper (including a preface) for up to 12 papers and 250 EURO per paper (including a preface) for more than 12 papers. The cost should be covered by the event organizers.
The guest editors are responsible for reviewing and selecting high quality papers to be published in the thematic issue and for writing a preface of the issue. The selected papers must provide a minimum of 50% new content and not exceed 30% copy/paste from the proceedings paper. All reviews (at least two per paper) should be sent to CIT Editor-in-Chief for approval.
After both sides agree on all the details a contract with the organizing university/institution is signed for publishing the special issue. The special issue will be published up to 2 months after receiving the final texts in the required journal format and the Licenses to publish from the authors.
