Editor-in-Chief: van den Broek, Egon
1 Issue per year
Open Computer Science is a fully peer-reviewed, open access, electronic-only journal publishing works of wide significance, originality and relevance. The journal provides the readers with free, instant, and permanent access to all content worldwide; and the authors with extensive promotion of published articles, long-term preservation, language-correction services, no space constraints and immediate publication.
Open Computer Science is listed inter alia by Clarivate Analytics (ESCI) and SCOPUS. There are NO submission and publication FEES. Our standard policy requires each paper to be reviewed by at least two Referees and the peer-review process is single-blind.
Aims and Scope
Open Computer Science publishes original and significant research results in the following fields:
- algorithms and complexity theory
- artificial intelligence
- networking and security systems
- programming languages
- system and software engineering
- theoretical foundations of computer science
The journal considers submissions of different types of articles, including "Research Articles" as well as “Review Articles”, which present the existing literature and achievements on the specific topic from new perspectives. We accept both theoretical and empirical contributions.
Open Computer Science is a premier source of a high quality research. Thanks to Open Access all articles are freely available to the academic community worldwide.
Authors benefit from:
- fair and constructive peer-review
- no space constraints
- language-correction services
- immediate publication of accepted papers*
- Open Access for all articles**
- promotion of published papers to readers and citers
- long-time preservation of the content***
* The journal uses continuous publication model − accepted manuscripts are published quickly after the acceptance.
** Thanks to Open Access, all articles are freely available to the academic community worldwide without any restrictions, there are more liberal policies on copyrights (authors retain copyright) and on self-archiving (no embargo periods).
*** The journal is archived in Portico.
The journal does not have article processing charges (APCs) nor article submission charges.

Submission of Manuscripts
Instructions for Authors
Open Computer Science encourages the submission of both substantial full-length bodies of work and shorter manuscripts that report novel findings that might be based on a more limited range of experiments. There are no specific length restrictions for the overall manuscript or individual sections; however, we urge the authors to present and discuss their findings in a concise and accessible manner. All submissions should be written in clear and concise English.
Manuscripts should be submitted to the journal via online submission system Editorial Manager available for this journal at http://www.editorialmanager.com/opencs/. In case of problems, please contact the Editorial Office of this journal via email email@example.com.
Manuscripts can be written in TeX, LaTeX (strongly recommended). Please note that we do not accept papers in Plain TEX format. Text files can be also submitted as standard DOCUMENT (.DOC) which is acceptable if the submission in LATEX is not possible. For an initial submission, the authors are strongly advised to upload their entire manuscript, including tables and figures, as a single PDF file. Authors are strongly advised to submit the final version of the paper using the journal’s LATEX template.
For detailed information, please see Instruction for Authors.
Unpublished material: Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described is not copyrighted, published or submitted elsewhere, except in abstract form. The corresponding author should ensure that all authors approve the manuscript before its submission.
Ethical conduct of research: The authors must describe and confirm safeguards to meet ethical standards when applicable. See Editorial Policy for details.
Conflict of interest: When authors submit a manuscript, they are responsible for recognizing and disclosing financial and/or other conflicts of interest that might bias their work and/or could inappropriately influence his/her judgment. If no specified acknowledgement is given, the Editors assume that no conflict of interest exists. Authors are encouraged to fill in the ICMJE Conflicts of Interest Form (available here) and send it in the electronic format to the Managing Editor.
Copyright: All authors retain copyright, unless – due to their local circumstances – their work is not copyrighted. The non-commercial use of each article will be governed by the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs license. The corresponding author grants the journal exclusive license for commercial use of the article, by signing the Open Access License. Scanned copy of license should be sent to the journal, as soon as possible.
Authorship: Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be named in an Acknowledgement section. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors (according to the above definition) and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the author list of the manuscript, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
Peer Review process: The Editors reserve the right to decline the submitted manuscript without review, if the studies reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the journal. Manuscripts deemed unsuitable (insufficient originality or of limited interest to the target audience) are returned to the author(s) without review. The Editor seeks advice from experts in the appropriate field. Research articles and communications are refereed by a minimum of two reviewers, review papers by at least three. Authors are requested to suggest persons competent to review their manuscript. However, please note that this will be treated only as a suggestion, and the final selection of reviewers is exclusively the Editor's decision. The final decision of acceptance is made by Managing Editor or, in case of conflict, by the Editor-in-Chief.
Scientific Misconduct: This journal publishes only original manuscripts that are not also published or going to be published elsewhere. Multiple submissions/publications, or redundant publications (re-packaging in different words of data already published by the same authors) will be rejected. If they are detected only after publication, the journal reserves the right to publish a Retraction Note. In each particular case Editors will follow COPE's Code of Conduct and implement its advice.
