Information for Prospective Authors

HCTL Open Science and Technology Letters (HCTL Open STL) is inviting high quality theoretical or experimental research articles, short-papers, case-studies, review and survey articles, tutorials, book reviews, etc. covering all Engineering and Applied Science domains.

Authors should submit their contributions electronically through the Journal's online submission system or via email to the Editorial Office. Authors should submit only papers that have been carefully proof read and polished. Before submission please make sure that your paper is prepared using the HCTL Open Research Article Template. This will ensure fast processing of the reviews and publication of the articles. Acknowledgement of the submitted manuscript will be sent within 24 hours of the submission. Acceptance or rejection notification for the submitted manuscripts will be sent to all authors.

The HCTL Open STL invites contribution in the following categories:
1. Original research
2. Survey/Review articles, providing a comprehensive review on a scientific topic.
3. Fast Communications: Short, self-contained articles on ongoing research.
4. Technical Notes.

Extended version of papers previously published in conferences and/or journals are also accepted.

The submitted paper must have been substantially revised, expanded and rewritten so that it is significantly different from the conference paper or presentation on which it is based. Paper must be sufficiently different to make it a new, original work. This is unlikely to be the case if less than 30% of the paper is clearly new. This is a matter of judgment that should be based on a comparison of the submitted paper with the original conference paper. The paper must contain a statement fully acknowledging the original conference paper: This paper is a revised and expanded version of a paper entitled [title] presented at [name, location and date of conference].

Submitied papers MUST be written in English, with NO page and color limitations. Submitted papers need to be in MS Word format with file extension .doc or .docx. During indexing process the authors' names as given in the final manuscript will be considered.
