Call for Papers
Call for papers
The Information Engineering Express was established in 2013 and is currently published quarterly a year, with the purpose of providing a forum for state-of-the-art developments and research in the theory and design of computer as well as current innovative activities in the applications of computers. In contrast to other journals, this journal encourages contributions of advances in theory, practice, and case-study of emerging computer technology. Current topics of interest include, but are not limited to: software engineering, architecture, networks, artificial intelligence, parallel and distributed computing, security, information retrieval and database systems, IT innovations, optimization and algorighm, and computer applications (e.g., engineering, tourism, agriculture, material science, medicine, business, education, etc.).

Review Process
Before a peer-review by the technical committee, submitted papers (except for invited papers) are meta-reviewed by associate editors, the editorial board and external reviewers. Then, all submitted papers are reviewed by 3-4 reviewers from several standpoints including novelty, reliability, validity, consistency, and technical impact. If a paper is conditionally accepted, author(s) may defend/modify as a final version paper and submit for final review. This publication process takes at least 4-8 weeks to be published after the first submission.

The contents in the journal are available from the Paper Management System. Also, articles can be searched from the followings.

Special Issues Proposal
IEE welcomes the arrangement of a special issue. To propose a special issue, the editors of the special issue have to fill out the application form and send it to us. Each special issue proposal is reviewed by journal editors and associate editors. If the proposal is accepted, the editors of the special issue call for papers and allocate submitted papers to reviewers. After reviewing, the editor-in-chief and the associate editors of IEE make a final decision. The concrete process is shown here.
