About the Journal

JOAI is an open-access journal dedicated to advancing the fields of optimization, informatics, and artificial intelligence (AI). It covers a broad range of topics, including combinatorial optimization, computer science security, computational complexity, informatics, computational intelligence, grid computing, meta-heuristic algorithms, operations research, semantic web, software engineering, and various aspects of web technologies. Additionally, JOAI now extends its focus to encompass emerging areas within AI, such as deep learning, reinforcement learning, explainable AI, AI ethics, AI applications in healthcare, finance, natural language processing, robotics, Internet of Things (IoT), and smart cities. Researchers and practitioners are encouraged to contribute their original work to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge and advancements in these fields.

General Journal guidelines

General Journal guidelines for authors Journal of optimization and artificial intelligence publishes research articles, reviews, short communications, and case studies. Research articles must include: motivation for the work, an adequate overview of the representative work in the field including up-to-date references, a clear statement of the novelty in the presented research, suitable theoretical background, one or more examples to demonstrate and discuss the presented ideas and, finally, conclusions. Short communications are usually 4-7 pages long, research articles and case studies 8-14 pages, while reviews can be longer. Page number limits are not strict and, with appropriate reasoning, the submitted articles can also be longer or shorter. Authors are requested to follow the Journal of optimization and artificial intelligence guidelines and strictly format their manuscripts as per the article template that is available here. If extensions of previously published conference papers are submitted, Editors will check if sufficient new material has been added to fulfill the journal standards and qualify the submission for the review process. The added material must not have been previously published. New results are desired but not necessarily required; however, the submission should contain expansions of key ideas, examples, elaborations, etc. of the conference submission.

Aims and Scope: The principal aim of the journal is to bring together the latest research and development in various fields of intelligent systems, ombinatorial optimization, computer science security, computational complexity, informatics, computational intelligence, grid computing, meta-heuristic algorithms, operations research, semantic web, software engineering, various aspects of web technologies, and artificial intelligence.

We would like to highlight that papers should refer to Aims and scope, but they are not limited to. Publication Frequency: One issue per year is published online, but processed and accepted papers, with full bibliographic data, are added to the issue continuously over the whole year.

Open Access: This is an open-access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.
