About the Journal

Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science (IJMSCS) is a high-quality refereed and open-access journal that publishes one volume per year. IJMSCS publishes original papers in the broad subjects of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science in English. The journal's Editorial Board consists of internationally renowned members in the three domains of the journal.

Authors may contact the managing editor by email to sahar.yassine [at] noroff.no, in advance to inquire whether their research topic is suitable for consideration by IJMSCS.

Publication Frequency

All articles accepted by IJMSCS will be posted online immediately upon the final corrections of the master proof having been made. All articles will be assigned a DOI number (Digital Object Identifier), whereby they become searchable and citeable without delay. IJMSCS will publish one volume per year.

Peer Review Process

  1. All scientific articles are submitted to the editorial board of the scientific journal via the Open Journal System (OJS). A manuscript of the scientific article is submitted with the Author(s) guarantee concerning the work presented for publication in the form approved by the Rector of the University.
  2. The submitted articles are verified using the “CrossCheck” similarity check system of the organization “CrossRef”. If plagiarism is detected, the editorial board of the scientific journal has the right to take action, including but not limited to the announcement of the correction of the error(s); rejection of the submitted scientific article, notification of the heads of the departments of the institutions of the authors and/or respective academic institutions or societies.
  3. The editor-in-chief, the managing editor, or the editorial board of the scientific journal perform an initial screening of scientific articles and reject the scientific articles non-compliant with the requirements of the scientific journal (non-compliance with the priorities of the scientific journal, lack of originality or scientific character, etc.). Only the scientific articles that have passed the initial screening are submitted for peer review. The initial screening is conducted, and reviewers are appointed within 3–6 weeks after the receipt of the manuscript of the scientific article.
  4. After passing the initial screening, the scientific article submitted to the scientific journal is peer-reviewed by at least two independent reviewers who are recognized researchers in the science field appointed by the editor-in-chief, the executive editor, or the editorial board. The editorial board may request that the authors propose competent researchers be included in the list of potential reviewers. At least one appointed reviewer is from a country other than the authors of the submitted article. The reviewers are appointed in confidentiality without the knowledge of the authors. If the submitted scientific article includes interdisciplinary problems, the reviews have to be provided by researchers of different science fields or areas. The reviews have to be prepared within 3 months from the date of the submission of the scientific article to the reviewer.
  5. After the peer review, a scientific article may be accepted, returned to the authors for corrections, or rejected based on the reviewers' conclusions. The request to correct the scientific article does not guarantee that the corrected article will be accepted. The time allocated for correcting the scientific article may vary from 2 weeks to 2 months from the date the comments are sent to the authors, depending on the number of comments.
  6. The authors must correct the scientific article following the comments specified in the reviews or explain why they refuse to consider certain comments. The corrected scientific articles are submitted via the OJS, including a detailed written explanation of the corrections made. The corrections are highlighted in the text in another color.
  7. Suppose a second round of review is required after the corrections by the authors. In that case, the reviewers assess the corrections of the scientific article and provide the editorial board with their conclusions on whether the scientific article has been improved following the specified comments.
  8. If the reviewers' opinions differ substantially, an additional reviewer may be appointed. The same requirements are applied to the additional reviewer and the main reviewers.
  9. The final decision regarding the publication of the scientific article or appointment of the additional reviewer is made by the editor-in-chief, the executive editor, or the editorial board taking into consideration the comments and conclusions of the reviewers, the corrections by the authors and/or the conclusions of the second-round review regarding the corrected article. This decision is final and not subject to further discussions or communication.
