e-Informatica Software Engineering Journal Paper Requirements and Recommendations

Paper Requirements and Recommendations

You will find our detailed requirements and recommendations for papers submitted to e-Informatica Software Engineering Journal. Papers that do not fulfil requirements cannot enter the review process.

As it does not prevent review and acceptance, we strongly advise following our recommendations.

Paper requirements

  1. Required elements of the paper:
    1. The structured abstract, including the following sections: Background, Aim, Method, Results, Conclusion (do not merge Results and Conclusion!)
      How to prepare structured abstract: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
    2. Keywords.
    3. Funding/supporting sources (or information about lack of)
    4. Information about reproducibility/replicability packages (if applicable). Packages can be:
      1. hosted on Zenodo or OpenML,
      2. hosted on CRAN (as R packages) including both open-source code/scripts and data,
      3. submitted along with the paper, in a single ZIP file.
  2. The submitted paper has to be prepared in a PDF format.
  3. The revised paper has to be submitted in a PDF format and typesetted with our LaTeX template. Also, you have to enclose LaTeX sources.

Paper recommendations

  1. Use our LaTeX template from the outset, as the revised/final version has to be submitted using it. Try to modify the template as little as possible, e.g. do not change single column layout.
  2. Structure your paper in the following manner:
    1. Introduction
    2. Related Work
    3. Methods
    4. Analysis
    5. Discussion (e.g. threats to validity)
    6. Conclusions and further works
  3. We encourage authors of Systematic Reviews or Systematic Mapping/Scoping Studies to follow the recent SEGRESS guidelines :
