About the Journal
Aim and Scope
The Lautech Journal of Computing and Informatics (LAUJCI) ISSN: 2714-4194 is an institutional based peer-reviewed research publishing journal with the aim of promoting and publishing original high quality research outputs in all areas of Computing and Informatics. All technical or research papers and research results submitted to LAUJCI should be original in nature, never previously published in any journal or presented in a conference or undergoing such process across the globe. All the submission will be peer-reviewed by the panel of experts associated with particular fields. Submitted papers should meet the internationally accepted criteria and manuscripts should follow the journal format which is available in the journal website for the purpose of both reviewing and editing.
- LAUJCI offers a quarterly publication every year after prompt peer-review by the experts in the field and immediate publication upon acceptance. It is the major editorial policy to review the submitted articles as fast as possible and promptly include them in the forthcoming issues should they pass the evaluation process.
- All research and reviews published in the journal have been fully peer-reviewed by two, and in some cases, three internal or external reviewers. Unless they are out of scope for the journal, or are of an unacceptably low standard of presentation, submitted articles will be sent to peer reviewers. They will generally be reviewed by two experts with the aim of reaching a first decision. However, each of the elite editorial panel members due to their academic standings has a weight equal to two referees, and if referred to any one of them, their evaluation will be considered as final.
- Reviewers are asked whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, and of what quality. Where possible, the final decision is made on the basis that the peer reviewers are in accordance with one another, or that at least there is no strong nonconformist view.
- In cases where there is strong disagreement either among peer reviewers or between the authors and peer reviewers, advice is sought from a member of the journal’s editorial board. The journal allows a maximum of three revisions of any manuscript. The ultimate responsibility for any decision lies with the chief editor. Reviewers are also asked to indicate which articles they consider to be especially interesting or significant. These articles may be given greater prominence and greater external publicity.
- Authors should strive for maximum clarity of expression, bearing in mind that the purpose of publication is the disclosure of technical knowledge and that and excessively complex or poorly written presentation can only obscure the significance of the work presented. Material which is not essential to the community of the text (e.g proofs, derivations, or calculations) be placed in Appendices.
- Referee policy treats the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge which that access provides.
- The editor in chief evaluates the recommendation and notifies the author of the manuscript status. The manuscript may be:
- Accepted for publication as it is
- Accepted for publication with minor changes, with no re-review necessary
- Accepted for publication after substantial revision and additional review
- The comments of the anonymous or otherwise reviewers will be forwarded to authors, and the revised manuscript returned, highlighting what modifications has been made in the manuscript or why you have not made the suggested changes. Note that revisions must be completed and submitted within two weeks after you received the reviewers’ comments. Late manuscripts may be rejected.
- Material which has been previously copyrighted, published, or accepted for publication will not be considered for publication in LAUJCI.
- The review process shall ensure that all authors have equal opportunity for publication of their papers. Acceptance and scheduling of publication of papers in these periodicals shall not be impeded by added criteria and procedures beyond those contained in the review process.
