Guidelines for authors

Please note that there is no direct submission to ACSIS, but instead authors should submit to specific planned volumes.

Formatting instructions

A PDF file is enough for paper submission and evaluation.

When your contribution is accepted in a planned volume, please, upload all your source files (i.e. all files that are necessary and sufficient for reproducing your PDF using standard software) together with PDF in one zip arichive. (Of course, you can use any other standard archiver).

After submitting the article, please, double check, if

  • You entered correct title
  • You entered correct abstract
  • You entered all the authors in correct order
  • Names of all authors have all diacritical signs

Please, note that this data can be used for Proceedings on pendrive as well as for IEEEXplore digital library. Specifically, if you made any changes of title, abstract or list of authors in the final version, please inform the series editors or planned volume editors. Alternatively, send modified versions directly to the TeXnical editor.

All published articles will be placed in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. To ensure that each conference article meets the specifications required by the IEEE Xplore Digital Library and the ACSIS high-quality standards, the final version will be produced from the author's source by our TeXnical editor. To make the processing as fast as possible, authors are kindly requested to follow the following instructions. You can prepare your article in any of the three formats:

  • LaTeX (prefered)
  • OpenDocument
  • MSWord (deprecated)

DOI

Please, add a DOI information to your bibiliography using the following format:

Ghosh, M.K., M.L. Harter. 2003. A viral mechanism for remodeling chromatin structure in G0 cells. Mol. Cell. 12:255–260, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S1097-2765(03)00225-9

BibTeX users

Sinse IEEEtran.bst does not officially support doi yest, use the myIEEEtran.bst by Gerald Q. "Chip" Maguire Jr. The template for doi in bib file is as follows:

@article{foo2010,
  author = "Ghosh, M.K., M.L. Harter",
  journal = "Mol. Cell.",
  year = 2003,
  title = "A viral mechanism for remodeling chromatin structure in G0 cells",
  doi = {10.1016/S1097-2765(03)00225-9},
  url = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S1097-2765(03)00225-9}
}

LaTeX

The LaTeX example with additional instructions (inserting of graphic files, algorithms, programming code fragments, etc) can be found here. Please, use the source of the fedcsis.texfile as a template for your article. The example uses the standard IEEEtran document class. If it is not yest installed in your system, please download it form here.

When submitting an article in LaTeX, please, provide:

  • The source of the article.
  • Files of all the inserted graphics.
  • PDF file with the article (this file will be sent to the reviewers).

OpenDocument Format

Preparing an article in the OpenDocument Format, please, use the following template and guide. You can refer to the OpenDocument Fellowship site for list of applications that support OpenDocument format.

Use IMCSITTemplate.odt file, included in the template and guide as a template for your contribution. The article elements (titles, abstract, author's name and address, programming code fragments, table and figure captions etc.) should be formated using the corresponding styles (see the documentation). You are not allowed to change explicitly fonts, paragraph formatting. etc.

When submitting an article in OpenDocument Format, please, provide:
The source of the article.
Files of all the inserted graphics.
PDF file with the article. PDF will be sent to the referees.

MSWord

If you choose MSWord format, please, first of all consider the possibility to switch to LaTeX, which produces perfect platform-independent documents.

To submit an article in MSWord, use the following template and guide. Use the IMCSITTemplateDoc.doc file, included in the template and guide as a template for your contribution. The article elements (titles, abstract, author's name and address, programming code fragments, table and figure captions etc.) should be formated with the corresponding styles (see the documentation). You are not allowed to change explicitly fonts, the paragraph formatting, etc.
Do not try to adjust the format of your article manually. It is better to leave not perfectly formatted text "as is".
You are encouraged to convert the article to OpenDocument format. Please, refer to the OpenDocument Fellowship site for the list of available converters.
Do not use Open XML format (docx extensions)!

When submitting an article in MSWord, please, provide:

  • The source of the article.
  • Files of all the inserted graphics.
  • PDF file with the article. PDF will be sent to the referees.

Review process

ACSIS follows single blind review procedure. The names of the reviewers are hidden from the author. This is the traditional method of reviewing and the most common type.

Anti-plagrialism policy

ACSIS will undertake strict actions to prevent plagrialism. The exact policy will be dependent on specific planned volume, however our preferred method is CrossCheck.
