JOURNAL OF COMPUTING IN SYSTEMS & ENGINEERING is a source of multidisciplinary information that includes activities involving technologies, processes, and systems management approaches needed for:


          definition of systems, including identification of user requirements and technological specifications;

          development of systems, including conceptual architectures, design concepts, development, integration, and deployment of systems.


Modern systems are often knowledge intensive and the journal emphasizes the information and knowledge base for the engineering of systems. Definitive case studies involving systems engineering practice are especially welcome. The Journal publishes papers covering all aspects of programming methodology, software engineering, and related hardware-software-systems issues. Topics of interest include software development environments and tools and techniques for developing, validating, and maintaining software systems, software architecture and design.


JOURNAL OF COMPUTING IN SYSTEMS & ENGINEERING publishes research papers and reports of practical experience. All articles should consider the practical application of the idea advanced through case studies, experiments, or systematic comparisons with other approaches already in practice.


JOURNAL OF COMPUTING IN SYSTEMS & ENGINEERING provides a systems-level focused forum for application-oriented manuscripts that address complex systems. The journal is intended to stimulate awareness, appreciation and utilization of computing for engineering systems and the supporting systems engineering disciplines. Themes include complexity, integration, inter-operability, dynamics, communication, effectiveness, ethics and completeness.


Areas of interest include: Energy, Management, Disaster response, Space exploration, Manufacturing, Automation, Communication, Information, Cyberspace, Internet, Distributed Networks, Transportation, Environmental Engineering, Educational Systems, Safety and systems engineering related topics.


JOURNAL OF COMPUTING IN SYSTEMS & ENGINEERING provides an avenue for scholarly work that researches information systems, electronic business and information technology. Papers examine the wider implications of the systems or technology being researched. This means that papers can consider aspects such as organisational relevance, business value, cognitive implications, social implications and impact on individuals or communities.


JOURNAL OF COMPUTING IN SYSTEMS & ENGINEERING is open to case studies, experiments and purely theoretical papers. Research that uses quantitative methods (for example statistical surveys) will be suitable if it concerns computing in systems and engineering.  Only original manuscripts, published nowhere else before, can be accepted for publication to record original research in the British Library. Papers that are merely illustrations of established principles and procedures, even though possibly containing new numerical or experimental data, will generally not be published. All articles undergo double-blind peer review.


Coverage Includes:


          IT planning and management, e-business and e-business development.

          Knowledge management, information systems and the Internet.

          Artificial Intelligence, Ambient Intelligence and expert systems.

          The integration of software and/or hardware technologies.

          Computer aided learning and teaching systems and software for teaching.

          Human computer interaction and user interfaces.

          Research methodologies.

          Virtual Reality and virtual teams.

          Systems design and evaluation.

          Intranet applications, web site development and evaluation.

          Use of information technology and computers in systems and engineering.

          Project management and IT and its impact on society.



Manuscript requirements


No length limitations for contributions are set, but only concisely written papers are published.


Brief articles are considered on the basis of technical merit.


As a guide:

  1. Articles should be between 2000 and 4000 words in length.
  2. A title must be provided.
  3. A brief autobiographical note should be supplied including:
    • Full name and affiliation
    • E-mail address
    • International contact details and brief professional biography.

NB This information should be provided on a separate sheet and authors should not be identified anywhere else in the article.

  1. Authors must supply an abstract to include: Purpose; Design/methodology/approach; Findings; Research limitations/implications; Practical implications; and Originality/value.

Maximum of 250 words in total.

  1. Please provide up to six keywords which encapsulate the principal topics of the paper.
  2. Categorize your paper under one of these classifications:
    • Research paper
    • Technical paper
    • Conceptual paper
    • Case study
  3. Headings must be short, with a clear indication of the distinction between the hierarchy of headings. The preferred format is for headings to be presented in bold format, with optional consecutive numbering.
  4. Notes or Endnotes should not be used.
  5. Each Figure (charts, diagrams, line drawings and photographic images) should be included within the article itself). Figures should be of clear quality, numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals, and may be supplied in colour.
       Figures should be within the MS Word document.
  6. Tables should be typed and included as part of the manuscript. They should not be submitted as graphic elements. Supply succinct and clear captions for all tables and figures. Ensure that any superscripts or asterisks are shown next to the relevant items and have corresponding explanations displayed as footnotes to the table or figure.
  7. References to other publications must be in Harvard style and carefully checked for completeness, accuracy and consistency. You should cite publications in the text: (Adams, 2006) using the first named author's name or (Adams and Brown, 2006) citing both names of two, or (Adams et al., 2006), when there are three or more authors. At the end of the paper a reference list in alphabetical order should be supplied.
