The submitting author takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review. If for some technical reason submission through the ACOMS is not possible, the author can contact paper-eng@koreacontents.or.kr for support.




All papers in IJoC are edited electronically. When your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to supply an electronic version that exactly matches the final, accepted hard copy, including abstract, keywords, and biographies. Manuscripts that do not adhere to the guidelines outlined below will be returned for correction. Please read the guidelines carefully and make sure the manuscript follows the guidelines as specified. We strongly recommend that authors download and use the manuscript template in preparing their submissions.


Manuscript Guidelines :

1) Abstract

The abstract should summarize the content of the paper using italic font. Try to keep the abstract a single paragraph of about 200 words. Do not cite references or display equations in the abstract.

2) Introduction

The introduction should briefly place the study in a broad context and highlight why it is important. It should define the purpose of the work and its significance. The current state of the research field should be reviewed carefully and key publications cited. Please highlight controversial and diverging hypotheses when necessary. Finally, briefly mention the main aim of the work and highlight the principal conclusions.  

References should be numbered in order of appearance and indicated by a numeral or numerals in square brackets, e.g., [1] or [2, 3], or [4-6]. See the end of the document for further details on references.

3) Materials and Methods

Materials and Methods should be described with sufficient details to allow others to replicate and build on published results. Please note that publication of your manuscript implicates that you must make all materials, data, computer code, and protocols associated with the publication available to readers. Please disclose at the submission stage any restrictions on the availability of materials or information. New methods and protocols should be described in detail while well-established methods can be briefly described and appropriately cited.

Research manuscripts reporting large datasets that are deposited in a publicly available database should specify where the data have been deposited and provide the relevant accession numbers. If the accession numbers have not yet been obtained at the time of submission, please state that they will be provided during review. They must be provided prior to publication.

Interventionary studies involving animals or humans, and other studies require ethical approval must list the authority that provided approval and the corresponding ethical approval code.

4) Results

This section may be divided by subheadings. It should provide a concise and precise description of the experimental results, their interpretation as well as the experimental conclusions that can be drawn.

5) Figures, Tables and Schemes

All figures and tables should be cited in the main text as Figure 1, Table 1, etc.

- This is a figure, Schemes follow the same formatting. If there are multiple panels, they should be listed as: (a) Description of what is contained in the first panel; (b) Description of what is contained in the second panel. Figures should be placed in the main text near to the first time they are cited. A caption on a single line should be centered.

- This is a table. Tables should be placed in the main text near to the first time they are cited

- Formatting of Mathematical Components : the text following an equation need not be a new paragraph. Please punctuate equations as regular text.

6) Discussion

This section is not mandatory, but can be added to the manuscript if the discussion is unusually long or complex.

7) Acknowledgments

In this section you can acknowledge any support given which is not covered by the author contribution. This may include administrative and technical support, or donations in kind (e.g., materials used for experiments).

8) Conflicts of Interest

Declare conflicts of interest or state “The authors declare no conflict of interest.” Authors must identify and declare any personal circumstances or interest that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of reported research results. Any role of the funders in the design of the study; in the collection, analyses or interpretation of data; in the writing of the manuscript, or in the decision to publish the results must be declared in this section. If there is no role, please state “The funders had no role in the design of the study; in the collection, analyses, or interpretation of data; in the writing of the manuscript, or in the decision to publish the results”.

9) References

Citations and References in Supplementary files are permitted provided that they also appear in the reference list here.

List and number all bibliographical references at the end of your paper. When cited in the text, enclose the citation number in square brackets, for example [1]. If you are making multiple citations that are consecutive, put the first in brackets, then a dash and then the last in brackets. Do not leave a space before or after the dash. If you make multiple citations not in consecutive order, separate each bracketed citation by a comma and a space. You can combine the two types like this: [3]-[6], [8], [12].

You may use the bracketed citation number as if it were the names of the authors as in this example: “As [4] demonstrated earlier, the length rarely exceeds 13 cm.” If, however, the bracketed citation begins a sentence, use “Reference [4] demonstrated that...”

All the references in the accepted manuscript should have its DOI link. Please follow the step-by-step procedures to put the DOI link:

1) Register your e-mail ID in http://www.crossref.org/requestaccount/

2) Enter your registered e-mail ID and all the references in the boxes in http://www.crossref.org/SimpleTextQuery/

3) If you fail to search the DOI of a reference, please the a DOI, you can google to find out its DOI.

The following is an example of the recommended style for references. IJoC follows the IEEE reference guide (https://ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org/wp-content/uploads/IEEE-Reference-Guide.pdf).

A submission fee of $70 (80,000 Korean Won) must be paid when submitting a manuscript. A fee is also required when resubmitting an article that was previously rejected. The submission fee covers a portion of the costs associated with peer review. The submission fee must be paid by Wire transfer when you submit your manuscript. A printable receipt will be sent by Email after payment is made.

The publication fee of accepted papers is free.

If you have any difficulties or questions, please contact IJoC Office at paper-eng@koreacontents.org.



This journal uses double-blind peer review. Both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. 

1. Reviewer Selection and Requesting Review

The editor-in-chief assigns a submitted manuscript to an editor from editorial board based on subject area. The editor-in-chief will send an electronic copy of the manuscript to the editor along with “guidelines for reviewers” and “reviewer’s report form”.

After the editor receives the manuscript from the editor-in-chief, the editor examines the manuscript to select reviewers, and contacts reviewers by email to determine if they would be able to review the manuscript in the next two weeks. IJIT office will send each selected reviewer one manuscript and a completed copy of the “guidelines for reviewers” and “reviewers report form”

It is our policy to complete the above process within 3 days.

2. Making Decisions on Manuscripts

The editor will determine the disposition of the manuscript, based on the report of the reviewers, and the editor’s own assessment of the manuscript. In cases where revisions (major or minor) are requested, followings are sent to the corresponding author:

   - All reviewer comments and suggestions

   - Editor comments


Decisions are as follows:

Accept: An accept decision means that an editor is accepting the paper "as is" and with no further changes whatsoever. The paper will not be seen again by the editor or by the reviewers.

Major Revision: A major revision means that the paper should go back to the original reviewers for a second round of reviews. We strongly discourage editors from making a decision based on their own review of the manuscript if a major revision had been previously required. This may cause problems in the future if reviewers were to see a published paper that they did not have a chance to re-review. If a paper has already gone through two rounds of reviews, the option of a second major revision is not available.

Minor Revision: The minor version may not go back to the reviewers, if the editor feels the revisions are sufficient / appropriate. Any revision in length by more than 10% should be a major revision.

Reject: The manuscript is not suitable for publication.

Author(s) have two week deadline to return revised manuscript. Also, only one time revision is given to authors.

3. Final Decision

The editor and editor-in-chief will always make the final decision of acceptance or release.
