Special Issues

Current Announcements for Special Issues

The journal welcomes monographs or special issues related to specific areas of Artificial Intelligence. Proposals to coordinate these special issues should be sent through email to the Editor (editor@iberamia.org). Content to these issues can be original research or applied papers about a special topic, survey papers that summarize the topics of a particular area, or extended versions of selected papers published in conferences or workshops. In any case, it must be topics related to the scope of the journal (see Suggested Keywords in submissions' info).

In all cases, the publication of these contributions is conditioned to acceptance in a peer-review process carried out by the invited editor which coordinates the special issue, joint with an specific international scientific committee, and under the final editorial supervision of the journal.

For these special issues, the following guides should be considered:

  • The invited editor should send a proposal to the editor of the journal, detailing the thematic area of the monograph, workshop or conference, the number of expected papers and estimated publication deadlines, as well as a justified proposal of an international scientific committee, which ensure quality of the selected papers.

  • IIn case of a monograph about a thematic area, it can be by 'invitation' or through an 'open call'. In the first case (Invitation), the guest editor directly invites the authors for their participation. It should be ensured that they are experts in the subject of the monograph, sufficiently distributed thematically, that the contribution is of quality and that the set of articles represents adequate coverage of the topics of the area. In the second case (open call), the call for the monograph would be made from the journal's  own system (https://journal.iberamia.org/index.php/intartif/announcement). In this case, a description of the topics covered by the monograph and a deadline should be made. The editor of the monograph, together with a specific scientific committee, would review the received submissions. It can also be a hybrid case (open-call  and  invitation)
  • In case of selected papers of conferences or workshops, an updated and extended version of the paper presented at the conference is requested, containing at least 30% new content. A reference to the corresponding publication in the conference or workshop must be included.
  • All the contributions must be sent through the journal's submission system (https://journal.iberamia.org/index.php/intartif/about/submissions), addressed to a section specially created for the monograph (the authors do not have to propose any reviewer). The editor or invited editors who coordinate the special issue will be the editors of this section and will be notified of each new submission to the monograph. 

  • Authors must accomplish the rules, copyrights and ethical statements of the journal (see About section). Particularly, authors must follow the journal format guidelines. For that, the instructions contained in http://journal.iberamia.org/index.php/intartif/about/submissions must be taken into account. The journal will not carry out any editorial process regarding the format or style of accepted articles. Authors of finally accepted articles must respect the indicated style instructions.

  • All contributions will be subject to a special "double blind" review track, carried out by the invited editor and the proposed scientific committee, and under the final editorial supervision of the journal. We recommend that the process of submitting articles and subsequent review be carried out using the journal's own review system. This will facilitate the subsequent publication of the monograph.

  • Once the contributions of the monograph are accepted, the articles will be transferred to the editorial team for the final review of styles and published in the journal, either as regular articles or identifying the special issue and the guest editor.
