Peer Review Process

Informatica is a scientific journal of computing and informatics, which includes telecommunication, automation and other related areas. We publish papers concerned with scientific and educational as well as technical, commercial and industrial developments in the computer science and informatics community.

Informatica research papers must present original work that has not been published yet and is not under review by another journal. Extended versions of papers published in conferences will be considered if they contain information not included in the conference paper. The conference paper must be cited in the extended paper.

Informatica uses anti-plagiarism tools to ensure the originality of the papers.

Informatica uses double-blind reviews. Therefore the information on the authors should be omitted from the submitted papers. The authors should refer to their previous work in an impersonal manner (not "In our previous work we showed ..." but "It was shown previously ..." or similar). However, the authors must include their information in the submission form.

If English is not your native language you may want to have your manuscript edited by a professional English copy editor prior to submission. Clear and concise language is the responsibility of the authors and will help reviewers concentrate on the scientific content of your paper and thus facilitate the peer review process. You may seek help by contacting the following professional editor who provides editorial services for a fee:

Note that the editor listed above is not associated with Informatica. Using an editing service is neither a requirement nor a guarantee of acceptance for publication.

An author may normally have only one paper under review by Informatica journal at a time. Furthermore, an author may not publish more than two papers per year in the journal.

A research paper is expected to be between 8 and 10 pages in length, although shorter and longer papers may be considered. Overview papers are expected to be longer.

At least two referees outside the author's country will examine the manuscript and their comments will be returned to the author. There are four possible outcomes:

  • Accept: the paper will be published as is.

  • Minor revision: the author will be required to revise the paper as per the referees' comments. The revised paper should be returned to the editor with whom the author was in contact together with a separate file detailing the changes and the replies to the referees' comments. The paper will be accepted at the editor's discretion.

  • Major revision: the author will be required to significantly revise the paper as per the referees' comments. The revised paper should be returned to the editor with whom the author was in contact together with a separate file detailing the changes and the replies to the referees' comments. The paper will then undergo another, final round of refereeing.

  • Reject: the paper will not be published.

Different types of papers are reviewed according to different highlights:

  • Regular paper: scientific or R&D novelty (theoretical and applied),
  • Overview paper: novelty and comprehensibility of overview,
  • Thesis summary: quality PhD thesis primarily in Europe or USA,
  • Position paper: interesting scientific opinion, not necessary confirmed,
  • Technical paper: engineering and technical novelty,not necessary scientific.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

According to the Informatica scientific orientation, authors of the papers are also owners of the papers and can put the source of the paper in any form everywhere, e.g. on a web page, ResearchGate, Academia or Facebook as long as the papers are referenced as the Informatica publication according to standard ways of referencing. No additional permission is needed. However, putting any text, tables or figures from the Informatica paper into other media without proper referencing is not permitted.
