Information for authors

1. Manuscripts are accepted for review on the understanding that they have not been published, nor are presently submitted for publication in any other English journals. Enhanced versions of papers previously published in conference proceedings may be considered provided it is notified when the paper is submitted, especially if they are of particularly high quality or include substantially new material. Prior publication of an abstract, summary, or other abbreviated form of the material, shall not preclude publication in this journal when notice of such prior or concurrent publication is given at the time of submission.

2. JCST publishes four types of papers: Regular Paper (Its length is not seriously limited.), Short Paper (Its length is not more than 5 typewritten pages.), Survey, and Review. For all manuscripts submitted to this journal, a list of 3--5 keywords and an abstract of 100--200 words are required.

3. All contributions are handled in the same fashion. Review management is under the direction of an area editor, who will solicit two reviews for each submission. Usually, the review process takes 3~6 months, and the publication process after acceptance can take additional 4~6 months. However, JCST will make every effort to shorten the processes.

4. For submission, please login at and upload your paper with .DOC or .PDF file. Before you do this please be sure that the file is not infected by viruses.

5. For an accepted paper, authors are invited to submit the final version as TeX, LaTeX, or Word file which should be accompanied by .pdf file of the revised paper; which should also contain a README file explaining any nonstandard conversions of macros, etc., that the author(s) has used. Authors should specify exactly what computer and word processor (including the version) were used. All parts of the manuscript should be typed sesqui-spaced on only one side of the paper with at least one-inch margins all around. Please refer to JCST Publish Template (LATEX, WORD ).
