Special Issue Proposal

Special issue is an effective way to communicate current knowledge in a particular field to researchers working in the field and interested readers. The Journal Hinweis Science and Engineeringaims to frequently publish special Archives that focus on research topics of common interest. Qualified scientists are encouraged to organize and guest edit special Archives in their expertise areas with the journal. The profiles and reputations of the guest editors increase together with the publication of the special Archives.

Proposals for special Archives are welcome throughout the year and the Archives can be published as soon as final versions of manuscripts are received by the journal editorial office. A special Archives may cover topics in Computer Science, Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Articles in the special Archives may include reviews, researcher papers, communications and other types as deemed appropriate by the editors. Conference organizers are welcome to publish the proceedings as special Archives in the journal. They may also organize a special issue based on the extended or full versions of papers that were presented in the conference, symposium or workshop.

A proposal should include:

  • CV and list of publications of the guest editors; (the main guest editor can invite up to 2 co-editors to edit the special issue)
  • a working title, an overview of the topics, aims and scope;
  • an estimated number of articles to be published, and if possible, list of potential authors and titles of manuscripts;
  • tentative time frame for submissions and publications.

Papers in the special issue may be invited or openly submitted. The guest editors are responsible for reviewing the special issue papers, and supply final versions to the journal editorial office for publication.
