2. RSEARCH AND PUBLICATION ETHICS
The journal adheres to the ethical guidelines for research and publication described in the Guidelines for Good Publication (http://publicationethics.org/node/11184).
2.1 Conflict of Interest Statement
If there are any conflicts of interest, authors should disclose them in the manuscript. Examples of potential conflicts of interest are financial support from or connections to companies and political pressure from interest groups. In particular, all sources of funding applicable to the study should be explicitly stated.
Authorship credit should be based on the following: 1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting of the article or its critical revision for important intellectual content; and 3) final approval of the version to be published. Authors should meet these 3 conditions. After the initial submission of a manuscript, any changes whatsoever in authorship (adding author(s), deleting author(s), or re-arranging the order of authors) must be explained by a letter to the editor from the authors concerned. The content of this letter must be acknowledged and agreed upon by all authors of the paper.
2.3 Originality and Duplicate Publication
All submitted manuscripts should be original and should not be under consideration by other scientific journals for publication at the same time. No part of the accepted manuscript should be duplicated in any other scientific journal without the permission of the Editorial Board. If duplicate publication related to the papers of this journal is detected, the manuscripts may be rejected, the authors will be reported in the journal, and their institution(s) will be informed. There will also be penalties for the authors.
3. PEER REVIEW PROCESS
All manuscripts will be evaluated by two or three peer reviewers who are selected by the editors. The acceptance criteria for all papers are based on the quality and originality of the research and its scientific significance. An initial decision will normally be made within ? weeks of the agreement of review by the reviewers, and the reviewers’ comments will then be sent to the corresponding authors via the online submission system and email. Revised manuscripts must be submitted online by the corresponding author, who must indicate the alterations that have been made in response to the referees’ comments item by item in a response note. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscript within 4 weeks of the editorial decision will be regarded as a withdrawal. Authors can track the progress of a manuscript on the journal's website.
All published papers shall be the property of the Korea Information Processing Society and must not be published elsewhere without written permission. A copyright transfer form should be submitted to the editorial office by fax, regular mail, or e-mail upon acceptance.
5. MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION
Manuscripts should be written in Korean or English. In Korean manuscripts, however, the bibliographic information (title, author, affiliation, corresponding author’s address, E-mail), tables, figures, acknowledgments, and references should be prepared in English. The author information should not be included in the submitted manuscript. Note, however, that it should be included in the final manuscript after acceptance.
5.2 General Guidelines
1) The manuscript should be prepared in MS Word or Hangul Word.
2) The manuscript should be written in 10-point font with double line spacing on A4-sized (21.0×29.7 cm) paper with 2.5 cm margins on the top, bottom, right, and left.
3) Units of measurement should use the International System (SI) of Units. All units must be preceded by a space except percentage (%) and temperature (°C).
5.3 Publication Type
This journal focuses on research papers and special issue papers.
1) Research papers: Following peer review, original findings within the scope of the journal will be published. Critical and new results of experiments or theory should be described in research papers. The page limit for a paper is 20.
2) Special issue paper: Papers dealing with recent issues or creative ideas within the scope of the journal can be published after peer review. The page limit is 20.
5.4 Research Papers
Manuscripts must include the following: 1) Title, 2) Abstract and Keywords, 3) Main Text, 4) Acknowledgments, 5) References, 6) Korean Title (in the case of Korean manuscript), 7) Korean Abstract and Keywords (in the case of Korean manuscript).
1) Abstract and Keywords: The Abstract should concisely state what was done and how it was done as well as the principal results and their significance. The abstract should be written as one paragraph, and it should not contain tabular material or numbered references. At the end of the abstract, keywords should be given in 3 to 5 words or phrases.
2) Main text:
a) Text section heading: There are four levels of section headings: 1. PRIMARY HEADING → 1 Secondary Heading → 1) Tertiary heading → a) Quaternary heading.
b) References in text: References should be numbered consecutively in the order they are first mentioned in the text. Each reference should be cited as [1, 4, 7] or [6-9].
c) Abbreviation: Must be used as an aid to the reader rather than for the convenience of the author; therefore, their use should be limited. Generally, avoid abbreviations that are used less than 3 times in the text, including tables and figure legends. Acronyms and abbreviations should be defined the first time they are used in the text.
d) Tables: Each table should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in order of appearance in the text. The headings should be sufficiently clear so that the meaning of the data is understandable without reference to the text.
e) Figures: The figures should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals as they are mentioned in the text: Fig. 1, Fig. 2, and Fig. 3. Related figures should be combined into one figure, with each subfigure denoted by the letters, A, B, C, and so on, following the Arabic number of the main figure (ex.: Fig. 1a, Fig. 1b). If the figures are not original, the author must contact each publisher to request permission, and this should be indicated in the footnote of the figure.
3) Acknowledgments: The acknowledgment section is placed at the end of the body. It could cite financial and any other support.
All references should be written in English and obviously related to the content of the submitted paper. References should be numbered consecutively in the order they are first mentioned in the text. References must be verified by the author(s) against the original documents.
