Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must include new significant research-based technical contributions in the scope of the journal. Purely theoretical, technological or lacking methodological-and-generality papers are not suitable to this special issue. The submissions must include clear evaluations of the proposed solutions (based on simulation and/or implementations results) and comparisons to state-of-the-art solutions. For additional information please contact the Guest Editors by sending an email exclusively to 

Papers under review elsewhere are not acceptable for submission. Extended versions of published conference papers (to be included as part of the submission together with a summary of differences) are welcome but there must have at least 40% of new impacting technical/scientific material in the submitted journal version and there should be less than 50% verbatim similarity level as reported by a tool (such as CrossRef). 

Guidelines concerning the submission process, LaTeX and Word templates can be found here. While submitting through ScholarOne, please select the option “Special Section on Cyber Security and Resilience(CSR-2014)“. 

As per TETC policies, only full-length papers (10-16 pages with technical material, double column – papers beyond 12 pages will be subject to MOPC, as per CS policies -) can be submitted to special sections. The bibliography should not exceed 45 items and each Author’s bio should not exceed 150 words. Authors are also invited to comply with the journal’s policies about the maximum number of self-references.
