International Journal of Information and Systems Sciences publishes
high quality papers on the theory and methods of
numerical analysis, scientific computing and
mathematical .To be published in this journal, a
paper must be correct, contain new ideas, and be
of interests to a wide range of readers. Survey
papers are also welcome.
Review Procedures All
papers will undergo a thorough peer review
unless the subject matter of the paper does not
fit the Journal; in this case, the author will
be informed promptly. Every effort will be made
to secure a decision
in six months and to
publish accepted papers within
Manuscripts should be in
English and must meet common standards of usage
and grammar. To submit a paper, send a file in
PDF format or PS format, or three
hard copies, to a member on the Board of Editors
whose interest is closest to topics of the paper
or to one of the editor-in-chiefs. All received
papers will be acknowledged.
Submission of a
manuscript is a representation that the work has
not been previously published, has not been
copyrighted, is not being submitted for
publication elsewhere, and that its submission
has been approved by all of the authors and by
the institution where the work was carried out;
furthermore, that any person cited as a source
of personal communications has approved such
citation, and that the authors have agreed that
the copyright in the article shall be assigned
exclusively to the Publisher upon acceptance of
the article. The manuscript will not be
be typed on one side of 8.5 X 11 in (21.5 X 28
cm) white paper, double-spaced, with wide
margins. Number each page. Page 1 should contain
the title, authors names and complete
affiliations. Place any footnotes to the title
at the bottom of Page 1. Each paper requires an
abstract not exceeding 200 words summarizing the
techniques, methods and main conclusions. AMS
subject classifications must accompany all
articles, placed at the bottom of Page 1 before
any other footnotes. Electronic mail addresses,
if available, can be placed at the very end of
the paper. Each paper requires a separate page
containing a proposed running head (abbreviated
form of the title) of no more than 40
characters, and the name and mailing address of
the author to whom proofs should be sent.
Equations should be
centered with the number placed in parentheses
at the right margin.
Figures should be in
eps or pdf or other formats
recognized by Tex.
References should be
listed alphabetically, typed and punctuated
according to the following examples:
