Review of Computer Engineering Studies (RCES) is an international, scholarly and peer-reviewed journal dedicated to providing scientists, engineers and technicians with the latest developments on computer science. The journal offers a window into the most recent discoveries in four categories, namely, computing (computing theory, scientific computing, cloud computing, high-performance computing, numerical and symbolic computing), system (database systems, real-time systems, operating systems, warning systems, decision support systems, information processes and systems, systems integration), intelligence (robotics, bio-informatics, web intelligence, artificial intelligence), and application (security, networking, software engineering, pattern recognition, e-science and e-commerce, signal and image processing, control theory and applications). The editorial board welcomes original, substantiated papers on the above topics, which could provoke new science interest and benefit those devoted to computer science. The journal is published quarterly by the IIETA.

The RCES is an open access journal. All contents are available for free, that is, users are entitled to read, download, duplicate, distribute, print, search or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without prior consent from the publisher or the author.

Publication Frequency

The RCES is published quarterly 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.
