International Journal of Computational Methods and Experimental Measurements (IJCMEM) provides the scientific community with a forum to present the interaction between the complementary aspects of computational methods and experimental measurements, and to stress the importance of their harmonious development and integration.

The steady progress in the efficiency of computers and software has resulted in the continuous development of computer simulation, which has influenced all scientific and engineering activities. As these simulations expand and improve, the need to validate them grows and this can only be successfully achieved by performing dedicated experimental tests. Furthermore, because of their continual development, experimental techniques are becoming so complex and sophisticated that they need to be controlled by computers, with the data obtained processed by means of computational methods.

The aim of the Journal is to review the latest work in computational methods and experimental measurements, with a view to achieving harmonious development and interaction between the two.

Publication Frequency

The IJCMEM is published regularly by the IIETA, with four regular issues (excluding special issues) and one volume per year.

Peer Review Statement

The IIETA adopts a double blind review process. Once submitted, a paper dealing with suitable topics will be sent to the editor-in-chief or managing editor, and then be reviewed by at least two experts in the relevant field. The reviewers are either members of our editorial board or special external experts invited by the journal. In light of the reviewers’ comments, the editor-in-chief or managing editor will make the final decision over the publication, and return the decision to the author.

There are four possible decisions concerning the paper: acceptance, minor revision, major revision and rejection. Acceptances means the paper will be published directly without any revision. Minor revision means the author should make minor changes to the manuscript according to reviewers’ comments and submit the revised version to the IIETA. The revised version will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of the editor-in-chief or managing editor. Major revision means the author should modify the manuscript significantly according to reviewers’ comments and submit the revised version to the IIETA. The revised version will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of the editor-in-chief or managing editor. Rejection means the submitted paper will not be published.

If a paper is accepted, the editor-in-chief or managing editor will send an acceptance letter to the author, and ask the author to prepare the paper in MS Word using the template of IIETA.

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is committed when one author uses another work without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. Plagiarism takes different forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. The IIETA uses CrossRef to screen for unoriginal material. Authors submitting to an IIETA journal should be aware that their paper may be submitted to CrossRef at any point during the peer-review or production process. Any allegations of plagiarism made to a journal will be investigated by the editor-in-chief or managing editor. If the allegations appear to be founded, we will request all named authors of the paper to give an explanation of the overlapping material. If the explanation is not satisfactory, we will reject the submission, and may also reject future submissions.
