Author Guidelines

Formatting Guidelines Sample: 


Guidelines for manuscript is adopted to the templates (IEEE):

- MS Word

- LaTeX

NOTE: Submissions that are not prepared according to the template (page margins, titles, figures, numbering, tables, references), will not be considered for reviewing.

All papers must be written in English. Regular papers should have 6-12 pages. Introductory discussion should be kept at a minimum, and material published elsewhere should be referenced rather than reproduced or paraphrased. Authors should strive for maximum clarity of expression, bearing in mind that the purpose of the publication is the dissemination of technical knowledge and that an excessively complex or poorly written presentation can only obscure the significance of the work described.

Care should be taken in the organization of the paper, such that a logical and consistent progression of thought is evident. It is strongly suggested that theorems, derivations, calculations, and other elements of a paper which are not essential to the continuity of the text be placed in Appendices.


Scientific novelty (original contribution) in the manuscript submitted to the journal means the following:

1) Authors present possible new approach/method/algorithm or a new system architecture/parts/environment which results e.g. in more deeper insight, better performance, lower complexity, wider application area etc.,
2) Authors should verify the declared scientific novelty by convincing presentation of mathematical models, simulations, experiments, and compare it with the results published in the literature available from reliable sources with scientific indexation,
3) Authors should declare the novelty in the abstract (shortly) and in the introduction (more elaborated), and present it in the appropriate (sub)section.

Note that the description of all details which are presented in the manuscript can not be considered as the scientific novelty.

Important note: In the list of references, DOI (if available) has to be included in each reference. If the cited article is published in other than English language, in the reference list it should be in English with added at the end e.g. (in Chinese).

After receiving the review comments, revise article as per reviewers’ suggestions (or give a reason why not).

If a manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be asked to supply the final copy and copyright form electronically.
Each article published in JCOMSS is freely available and is accessible on the journal web site at
