Aims and Scope

Central European Journal of Computer Science (CEJCS) will publish research results of wide interest in the following fields:

  • algorithms and complexity theory
  • artificial intelligence
  • bioinformatics
  • networking and security systems
  • programming languages
  • system and software engineering
  • theoretical foundations of computer science

The primary mission of CEJCS is to assist Central and Eastern European researchers in communicating and promoting their achievements to the worldwide scientific community. Nevertheless, contributions from other regions of the world are also welcome. CEJCS is designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas between researchers from different countries.

CEJCS is peer-reviewed and the language of the journal is English. Researchers from non-English regions are provided with free language correction service from scientists who are native English speakers. CEJCS is going to be published quarterly in the electronic-only version.

Manuscript submission

Central European Journal of Computer Science (CEJCS) considers submissions of research articles, review (survey) articles, communications, and vision papers. All submissions to CEJCS must be made electronically via Editorial Manager - an online submission and peer review system at First-time users must create an Author account to obtain a user ID and password required to enter the system. All manuscripts receive individual identification codes that should be used in any correspondence with regard to the publication process. For the authors already registered in Editorial Manager it is enough to enter their username and password to log in as author ('Author Login' button).

If you experience diffculties with the manuscript submission website, please contact the Managing Editor (Dr. Adam Naumowicz) at

All authors of the manuscript are responsible for its content; they must have agreed to its publication and have given the corresponding author the authority to act on their behalf in all matters pertaining to publication. The corresponding author is responsible for informing the coauthors of the manuscript status throughout the submission, review, and production process.

Manuscript preparation

Prior to publication in CEJCS, all manuscripts must be rendered in LaTeX format. Therefore the recommended  manuscript submission format is LaTeX. Please download the package containing a dedicated LaTeX class and a template source file ( The on-line submission system accepts also manuscripts prepared with MSWord, either as a standard document (.doc) or rich text format (.rtf) as well as PDF files. If you are not familiar with LaTeX you can use these options to submit your manuscript provided no no fancy formatting features are used. In either case please read carefully the Paper writing guide for CEJCS authors.

Transfer of Copyright Agreement

Once the paper is accepted, authors are assumed to have transferred the copyright of the paper to the publisher Versita. A properly completed Transfer of Copyright Agreement form, signed by the Corresponding Author on behalf of all the authors, must be provided for each submitted manuscript as a condition of publication. Authors are asked to email a scanned copy of the signed original to the Managing Editor of CEJCS (Dr. Adam Naumowicz) at

Your contribution

We greatly appreciate the time and effort given by reviewers in evaluating papers for publication in our journal. Thanks to your contribution, Central European Journal of Computer Science authors receive fast, fair and comprehensive review.

Our standards

  • our reviewers are typically requested to deliver reports in three weeks
  • research articles and communications are as a rule reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers, review papers by at least three
  • we pay special attention to receive unbiased, fair opinions; special policies govern allocation of reviewers to articles
  • whenever submission qualifies for publication but needs revision, reviewers are asked to give comprehensive opinion on necessary improvements


The reviewers are expected to use our online submission system Editorial Manager. You may log in to the system at
The system manual for referees is available on the Editorial Manager page.
If using the online system is not convenient for you please contact the Managing Editor (Dr Adam Naumowicz) at

Specific expectations

Research papers should contain original work which is not published elsewhere by the authors or anyone else, and is not under consideration for publication in any other medium. However, significant extensions of works previously presented at conferences are possible. Multidisciplinary works that fit CEJCS scope are also welcome. The presented results should be supported by research, testing and analysis. The use of the English language in the submission should be good enough to guarantee clear understanding of the contents for a wide audience of computer scientists. Please note that as a step towards overcoming language barriers, our language editors provide the authors of accepted papers who are not native-speakers of English with help in correcting the use of English.

Communications should meet the key standards listed above and additionally should report high quality new work of such importance that merits urgent publication, and should be likely to make significant impact on the current research in the relevant area. If however a contribution is not justified to be handled via this rapid channel, it may be considered as a research paper, probably after expansion or revision.

Review (survey) articles & Vision papers should contain the most significant results of the subject under review. All reviews should be scientifically accurate, should describe the most relevant and recent contributions, the subject matter should be discussed competently and the choice of citations should be adequate and should not overlook important contributions of other workers. In the case of vision papers, an important aspect of their evaluation is clear specification of possible research opportunities as a direct implication of the considerations on present state-of-the-art subject domain knowledge.
