Review process for the review articles.
Each submission is reviewed from at least four persons – the Editor-in-Chief, Area or Guest Editor and two independent reviewers.
The review process is open and transparent for author and reviewers – the reviewers can see the authors of the material and the author receives the complete feedback of the reviewers, without their personal data (single blind review process).
Discussions on previous published results are welcome and will be published without review in form of short communication with DOI, too.
The length of the reviewed papers is not limited, but only well structured materials will be considered for publication.
The journal is a purely online journal, without print issues.
Formally, all published manuscripts are structured in two issues per year.
The language of the peer reviewed material is only English.
The non-reviewed communications are preferably in English, but can be published in German or other languages, too, if the editorial team is able to check the formal level and the quality of the material on this language. In this case short abstract in English language has to be provided.
The references have to be formated following the ACM reference stlye https://www.acm.org/publications/authors/reference-formatting
