postheadericon Instruction to Authors


Unpublished papers and extended versions of papers presented at conferences may be submitted for possible publication in IAJeT. Responsibility for the contents of a paper rests upon the authors and not upon the editors or the publisher. Surveys and tutorial papers are welcome. Please read and follow these instructions carefully. Doing so will ensure that the review and publication of your paper is as rapid and efficient as possible. The editors reserve the right to return manuscripts that are not prepared in accordance with these instructions.


Electronic submission of manuscripts as Microsoft’s Word document via IAJeT OpenConf is a must. IAJeT OpenConf is a management system that automates the paper submission and the whole reviewing process. It can be accessed via IAJeT web site at A final preparation format is available in the web site. Any question regarding submission or the reviewing process should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Work submitted for publication must not be published previously or under consideration for publication elsewhere and, if accepted, it should not then be published elsewhere in the same form. If previously published figures, tables, or parts of text are to be included, the copyright-holder’s permission must have been obtained prior to submission. Authors of accepted papers should provide a photo and a brief biography of each author.


It is a condition of publication in IAJeT that authors assign copyright to the publisher. This ensures that requests from third parties to reproduce articles are handled efficiently and consistently and will also allow the article to be as widely disseminated as possible. In assigning copyright, authors may use their own material in other publications provided that IAJeT is acknowledged as the original place of publication, and the publisher is notified in writing and in advance.Download the Transfer of Copyright Agreement.

Preparation of the Manuscript

Papers must be clearly written in English. The text should be presented on A4 or an equivalent size. All parts of the manuscript should be in two columns format, except the first part of the paper which includes the title, the abstract, and the list of keywords. The paper length should not exceed 8 single-spaced double column pages, including figures and tables. Margins of 15 mm should be left around the left, right, and bottom sides of the text. The top margin should be 25 mm. Please number each page but provide a short running title on the title page only. The title page, page number one, should contain the following information: the paper title, a brief abstract, a set of keywords, and text. Be sure not to include the authors' names in your paper. The abstract should be concise and not longer than 250 words. Immediately following the abstract, no more than six keywords are to be supplied for subject indexing. Keywords should not simply be taken from the title of the paper, but should be representative of the content of the whole paper and characteristic of the terminology used within the particular field of study. The introduction of the paper must be clearly written and should explain the nature of the problem, previous work, purpose and the contribution of the paper. The introduction is assigned number “1”, and following sections are assigned numbers as needed. A conclusion section must be included and should indicate clearly the advantages, limitations, and possible applications. Footnotes to the main text are acceptable and should be identified by superscripted numbers. Footnotes should appear on the page of citation.


This section is not assigned a number. Only published articles or reports readily accessible in the general literature should be cited. The references should be numbered in alphabetical order by the first author’s last name. Internationally accepted abbreviations of journal titles may be used.

Citations in the text should be by number and enclosed in square brackets. Where there are more than three contributing authors, please list only one and use et al. The following format for references should be followed:

  1. Journal papers: authors; paper title (between double quotation marks); title of journal (in Italics); volume and number; inclusive pages; and year; for example:
    [1] Galton A., “Logic as a Formal Method,” Computer Journal, vol. 35, no. 2, pp. 431-440, 1992.
  2. Conference papers: authors; paper title (between double quotation marks); title of proceedings (in Italics); location; inclusive pages; and year; for example:
    [2] Downey A., “Predicting Queue Times on Space Sharing Computers,” in Proceedings of the 11th International Parallel Processing Symposium, Geneva, Switzerland, pp. 209-218, 1997.
  3. Books: authors; title (in Italics); publisher; location; and year; for example:
    [3] Hogger C., Essentials of Logic Programming, Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1990.

Figures should be presented in the text of the paper. All figures should be formatted to fit into, or be reduced to, a single (85 mm) or double (178 mm) column width. Line illustration or camera-ready text must be of sufficient quality for publication as submitted i.e. clear, clean, sharp and of an even density. Figures will not be redrawn or relabeled. Any lettering or text should be in proportion to the rest of the figure. Halftones (photographs) should be of sufficient quality with respect to detail, contrast and fineness of grain to withstand the unavoidable loss of contrast inherent in the printing process.

Proofs and Offprint's

One round of page proof will be sent to the corresponding author for checking. To avoid delays in publication, proofs should be checked and returned immediately by express post, email or fax to the Editor-in-Chief. Authors are sent 10 free offprints following publication of their paper. Single issues of the journal may be ordered when the corrected proofs are returned using the form provided.
