Submission of Manuscripts

Correspondence by e-mail is requested for convenience and speed.  Authors may submit manuscripts in English to any member of the Editorial Board.  A Postscript or PDF file with a cover letter must be sent to the corresponding editor by e-mail. The cover letter should give the author's preferred address, e-mail address, phone number and fax number, and should indicate the intended publication format (Short paper, Regular paper or Expository paper).  Each submission should include an informative abstract of no more than 200 words.  A list of e-mail addresses for all editorial board members is given on the inside front and back covers.  Authors of all accepted papers must send the electronic version of the final manuscript approved by the Editorial Board (preferably in TeX or its variants) to the corresponding editor.

Manuscript Style, Illustrations and Photos

The manuscript should be typewritten using double spacing, one side of sheet only. All pages should be numbered consecutively, including illustration pages (which preferably should be grouped at the end), with no omitted page numbers. Figures should be identified with the figure number and author's name at the bottom or on the back. Information should be kept on the margin, off the body of the figure. 

Figures and photos should be original proofs and not photocopies. Photos must be prints with no screens. Laser prints are not acceptable in place of photos or where gray scale graphics are involved. All line drawings and photo should be in black and white, unless specifically requested. Note that any illustration that is to be printed in color will be at the expense of the author. 


By submitting a manuscript for publication to Communications in Information and Systems, authors acknowledge that the work is original and is not being submitted to another journal. When a paper is accepted for publication, the author will be asked to transfer the copyright to International Press. Even if the copyright is transferred to the publisher, the authors and their employers will be permitted to reproduce their work for fair use, which should not include any profit making activity. The paper will not be published if the Consent to Publish and Copyright Agreement Form is not signed and returned to Communications in Information and Systems, c/o International Press, 385 Somerville Ave., P.O. Box 43502, Somerville, MA 02143, USA.
