KIPS Transactions on
Software and Data Engineering

Published by KIPS (Korea Information Processing Society)
Frequency: Monthly, ISSN: 2287-5891

KTSDE (KIPS Tr. Software and Data Eng.) was merged and renamed from The KIPS Transaction: Part B (1598-284X) and The KIPS Transaction: Part D (1598-2866), which were first published in 1994. After the official meeting of the Korea Information Processing Society in April 13, 2012 in Seoul, Korea, the board members of the Society decided to publish the journal dealing with software and data engineering research not only in Korea but also in the world. This work was supported by the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST) grant funded by the Korea Government (MOSF&MSIP), indexed by Korea Science, Korea Citation Index (KCI), and EBSCO.

Publication Ethics

With regard to ethical standards, KTSDE (KIPS Transactions on Software and Data Engineering) takes plagiarism very seriously and thoroughly checks all articles. KTSDE defines research ethics as securing objectivity and accuracy in the execution of research and the conclusion of results without any unintentional errors resulting from negligence or incorrect knowledge, etc. and without any intentional misconduct such as falsification, plagiarism, etc. When an author submits a paper to the KTSDE online submission and peer-review system, he/she should also upload the separate file "author check list" which contains a statement that all his/her research has been performed in accordance with ethical standards.

Among the KTSDE editorial board members, there are vice editor-in-chiefs who support KTSDE by dealing with any ethical problems associated with the publication process and give advice on how to handle cases of suspected research and publication misconduct. When the KTSDE manuscript editor (or the KTCCS secretary) looks over submitted papers and checks that they are suitable for further processing, the manuscript editor also routes them to the CrossCheck service provided by iThenticate. Based on the results provided by the CrossCheck service, the KTSDE vice editor-in-chiefs inform the KTSDE editor-in-chief of any plagiarism that is detected in a paper. Then, the KTSDE editor-in-chief communicates such detection to the author(s) while rejecting the paper.
