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 six  months.

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 returned.

Manuscripts should 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:
