Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in PDF document file format.
  • Where available, DOIs and/or URLs for the references have been provided (after acceptance, but not before, the source files and the BiBTeX file will need to be provided).
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

Acta Cybernetica publishes only original papers in the field of Computer Science. Manuscripts must be written in good English.

Concurrent Submission

  Contributions are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been published elsewhere. Papers previously published in conference proceedings, digests, preprints are eligible for consideration provided that the author informs the Editor at the time of submission and that the papers have undergone substantial revision. If authors have used their own previously published material as a basis for a new submission, they are required to cite the previous work(s) and very clearly indicate how the new submission offers substantively novel or different contributions beyond those of the previously published work(s).

Manuscript Formatting Requirements

We recommend to use directly the LaTeX style and template to obtain the required format. Otherwise, make sure that that your submission include a title page with the following elements:

  • title of the paper
  • author name(s) and affiliation
  • name, address and email of the corresponding author
  • An abstract clearly stating the nature and significance of the paper. Abstracts must not include mathematical expressions or bibliographic references.

References should appear in a separate bibliography at the end of the paper, with items in alphabetical order referred to by numerals in square brackets including DOI or URL information wherever available. Please prepare your submission as one single PDF file including all elements of the manuscript (title page, main text, illustrations, bibliography, etc.).

  It is advisable to prepare the manuscript following the guidelines described in the author kit even at this early stage.

Submission of Manuscripts

  Manuscripts must be submitted online by making a new submission. You can also revise your pending submissions.

Review Process

 Each submission is peer-reviewed by at least two referees. The length of the review process depends on many factors: the availability of an Editor and the time it takes to locate qualified reviewers. Usually, a review process takes 6 months to be completed.

Final Submission

When your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to upload the complete electronic version of your manuscript. For technical reasons, we can only accept files in LaTeX format. When preparing the manuscript, please follow the guidelines described in the author kit. Also include the PDF version of your manuscript. All materials must be compressed into one ZIP file.

In order to avoid delays in the publication process, authors are required to submit their final publication materials by the due date given in the acceptance letter.
