Ubiquitous computing and pervasive networks have become a reality with the advances in wireless communication technologies and the availability of portable and mobile computing devices. Wireless sensor networks, wireless mesh networks, mobile ad hoc networks and autonomic computing have recently emerged as new networking and communication technologies that extend the application domain of wireless communications. These networking technologies coupled with ubiquitous and pervasive systems bring opportunities and challenges due to the heterogeneity of networks, devices and applications.
The Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board are very committed to build the Journal as one of the leading international journals in computer, electrical and network sciences in the next few years. With the support of the International Association for Sharing Knowledge and Sustainability (IASKS), it is expected that a constant resources to be channelled into the Journal to establish its international reputation. The Journal's reputation will be enhanced from arrangements with several organizers of international conferences in publishing selected best papers of the conference proceedings. Our plan is to publish four issues per year and launch the first issue on December 2010.
Aims and Scope
The aim of this journal is to publish original research articles in ubiquitous and pervasive ad hoc, mesh and wireless networks. This journal is a primary forum for researchers and practitioners to disseminate new ideas, theoretical and practical solutions to solve problems and enhance existing solutions in ubiquitous and pervasive ad hoc and wireless networks and their applications. This journal targets academic researchers, industrial professionals and engineers who work on ubiquitous and pervasive wired and wireless networks and software computing systems, as well as general practitioners of distributed network systems. The journal also encourages the submission of critical review articles covering advances in recent research of such fields as well as technical notes.
The International Journal of Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (JUSPN) is a peer-reviewed refereed international journal. JUSPN is of interest and use to researchers who are concerned with research in various fields of, or closely related to, ubiquitous and Pervasive ad hoc , mesh and wireless networks. The International Journal of Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks aims to provide a highly readable and valuable addition to the literature, which will serve as an indispensable reference tool for years to come. The coverage of the journal includes all new theoretical and experimental findings in the fields of ubiquitous and Pervasive ad hoc, mesh and wireless networks or any closely related fields. The journal also encourages the submission of critical review articles covering advances in recent research of such fields as well as technical notes.
Ethical values for the publication are very essential for JUSPN to ensure:
- High-quality scientific publications.
- Public trust in scientific findings.
- Valuable credits for authors’ ideas.
The International Journal of Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks is committed to publishing only original work. This implies that the work has neither been published nor is concurrently under review. Articles found to be plagiarized will face the consequences of removing their papers from the journal as well as informing their employers. It is the responsibility of all authors to make sure that their submitted work is not plagiarized. Manuscripts that are found to have been published or under review elsewhere will also receive publication sanctions.
If authors have used their own previously published work or work that is currently under review, as the basis for a submitted manuscript, then they are required to cite the previous work. Also, they must include an indication of how their submitted manuscript offers novel contributions beyond those of the previous work.
Submitted manuscripts that are found to have either fabricated or falsified experimental results, including the manipulation of images, will receive publication sanctions.
All listed authors must have made some significant publication contribution to the research in the manuscript and approved all claims of their submitted work.
Individuals who have made other types of contributions that are not considered as co-authors’ contributions, including students and laboratory technicians, must be listed in the acknowledgement section of the paper.
