Authors' Guidelines

Your paper should not have been previously published or be currently under consideration for publication any place else. You can visit our IJECS Submission Page, and submit your paper through the Manuscript Tracking System. All papers are subject to peer review by IJECS Review Process. After your paper has been accepted, you must sign a Copyright Transfer Agreement with IJECS. Papers accepted for publication will be available free online.


IJECS invites original, previously unpublished, research papers, review, survey and tutorial papers, application papers, plus case studies, short research notes and letters, on both applied and theoretical aspects.


(a) Submission implies that the manuscript has not been published previously, and is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere. Submission also implies that the corresponding author has consent of all authors.


(b) If the authors provide a previously published conference submission, Editors will check the submission to determine whether there has been sufficient new material added to warrant publication in the Journal. The Lembaga KITA Press guidelines are that the submission should contain a significant amount of new material, that is, material that has not been published elsewhere. New results are not required; however, the submission should contain expansions of key ideas, examples, elaborations, and so on, of the conference submission. The paper submitting to the journal should differ from the previously published material by at least 50 percent.


(c) Upon acceptance for publication transfer of copyright will be made to Sekretariat Pusat Lembaga Komunitas Informasi Teknologi Aceh Press.


(d) Manuscripts should be written in English. Paper submissions are accepted in MS Word and PDF, other formats will not be accepted. Authors are requested to follow IJECS guidelines for preparing their manuscripts (MS WordPDF). All the papers are usually 8 to 16 pages long and the Review Process may take approximately 1-3 months. In special cases, shorter or longer articles may be accepted with appropriate reasoning.


(e) Whenever applicable, submissions must include the following elements: title, authors, affiliations, contacts, abstract, index terms, introduction, main text, conclusions, appendixes, acknowledgement, references, and biographies.


(f) Authors may suggest 2-4 reviewers when submitting their works, by providing us with the reviewers' title, full name and contact information. This will speed up the review process, but the editor will decide whether the recommendations will be used or not.


(g) Please read our Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement and Plagiarism Detection before submitting.
