International Association of Scientific Innovation and Research (IASIR) encourages scientists, researchers, and academicians from all over the world from different domains to submit their high quality theoretical or empirical research articles, case studies, proposals, review papers, comparative studies, dissertation chapters, research proposals / synopsis, surveys, tutorials, editorials as well as pedagogical and curricular issues on common topics of interest. Such special issues will focus on specialty domains in the emerging areas of computer engineering, electronic and communication engineering, bio-technology, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mathematical sciences, physical sciences, chemical science, pharmaceutical sciences, operations research, social and management sciences, business and enterprise systems, new paradigms for technology management, intelligent systems and many others in the domain of its open access publication in the following refereed scientific research journals: (i) International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Computational and Applied Sciences (IJETCAS), (ii) International Journal of Software and Web Sciences (IJSWS), and (iii) International Journal of Engineering, Business and Enterprises Applications (IJEBEA). Proposals can be submitted to the editorial board at firstname.lastname@example.org. A proposal should not exceed 1-2 pages.
- Proposals from scientists, researchers, and academicians significantly involved and recognized in their field will be considered.
- Proposals from honourable members of the review and associated boards of IASIR are acceptable.
- The articles for the special issue must fulfil the license agreement and copy right transfer policies of IASIR journals.
- Guest editors can be opted to publish the special issue in the journals of IASIR. More information on publication policy can be sought at email@example.com.
- IASIR should offer either an authoritative review of current thinking and debates in a concerned area, that at the same time takes these argues forward and/or a presentation of state-of-the-art analysis within an area of current approach and academic interest that thus informs approach debate in this area.
- Set out the importance of the area and topics that the special issue will focus on;
- Explain the anticipated contribution of the special issue in advancing understanding in this area;
- Indicate the time-scale in which the special issue could be produced (paper writing, reviewing, and submission of final copies to IASIR) assuming the proposal is accepted.
- Once a proposal has been approved by the editorial board, it is the responsibility of the guest editor(s) to deliver the soft copy of the entire issue to the International Association of Scientific Innovation and Research (IASIR) within the agreed time-scale. Guest editors must organize a double-blind reviewing process for all papers submitted for inclusion in the special issue, so as to:
- Identify those papers to be finally included in the special issue.
- Strengthen these papers, so as to ensure the highest possible standards for the issue.
- Verify the accepted papers for any possible infringements of any copyrights or intellectual properties. IASIR authorities shall cross-verify the concepts and inventions proposed the submitted research papers against the patent directory.
- Coordinating with the reviewers while developing extensive reviews of the submitted research papers.
- The editors of International Association of Scientific Innovation and Research (IASIR) journals see the copies of all correspondence between reviewers and editors at the time of complete draft submission for the special issue.
- Once the final selection of papers has been made and final versions (as per IASIR format guidelines) of all these have been received, the editorial board of IASIR will check the quality of the issue before forwarding it for publication in the digital library and print version of the same.
- The editorial board reserves the right to request a third review of papers and, if necessary, to request modifications to an issue before approving it for publication.
