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 submitted paper:
    1. The structured abstract including the following sections: Background, Aim, Method, Results, Conclusion (do not join 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)
  2. The paper for review has to be prepared in PDF format.
  3. When submitting a revised version, you have to enclose LaTeX sources.
  4. The final version of the paper has to be prepared in LaTeX format by authors using our LaTeX template.
    • We do not perform any translations (e.g. DOC to LaTeX).
    • It is unacceptable, to provide the final version in PDF format only.

Paper recommendations

  1. Use our LaTeX template from the outset, as the final version has to be submitted using it. Try to modify it 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. Include reproducibility/replicability packages which can be hosted on Zenodo, OpenML or as R packages hosted on CRAN including both open source code/scripts and data.
  4. In the case of Systematic Reviews or Systematic Mapping/Scoping Studies authors may be interested in recent SEGRESS guidelines :
