Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers, which have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration for another journal or conference. All submitted papers are thoroughly reviewed for originality, soundness, significance, presentation, and relevance. Manuscripts must include an abstract and a list of keywords, and should be limited to 15,000 words (5,000 words for short papers).
The journal emphasizes timely processing of submissions and minimal backlogs in publication time. We review papers and advise authors of their paper status with a target turnaround time of 3 months.
