Evaluation Process

The Steps of the Editorial process are:

1.- The author must to submit the paper using the paper submission system. By submitting your article to the International Journal of Combinatorial Optimization Problems and Informatics, you and all co-authors of your submission agree to the terms of the Copyright Transfer Agreement.

2.- The manuscript is read and examined for conformity to the Instructions for Authors by the editor. Failure to meet the criteria outlined may result in return of the manuscript for correction before evaluation.

3.- Having established that the article meets the themes, the editor selects two referees (two external academic pairs, who will determine anonymously) who are invited, in confidence, to evaluate the manuscript according to the following aspects:

• Originality of the work.
• Relevance to scientific knowledge in Informatics and Combinatorial Optimization Problems.
• Background: Theoretical background adequate. Hypothesis, objectives and clear contribution to IJCOPI topics.
• Methodology: Materials and methods appropriate and adequately described. Sound experimental design.
• Results: Data concise and sufficient. Statistics analysis when appropriate. Efficiency measurements. Figures clear and correct, only essential data should be included in figures. Elimination of figures, graphs and tables which add little or could be replaced by a few sentences or a statement of numerical values is recommended.
• Discussion: In-depth discussion, correct interpretation.
• Formal Aspects: Correct language, references properly cited. High quality figures. Adherence to usual and consistent nomenclature. Title and summary sufficiently informative.

All the above items will be evaluated as outstanding, good, fair, mediocre or poor by an assessment form given to evaluators.

4.- The manuscript could be: accepted; accepted after minor revision (no further review required); accepted only after major revisions, inappropriate for the journal; rejected. If the paper is accepted after major revisions, it must be sending again for peer review to the same evaluators. In case of discrepancy, the manuscript will be sent to a third arbitrator whose decision will define his pulbicación.

5.- If the manuscript is accepted or accepted with minor revision, later of the modifications realized for the author. The authors must to fill the query proofs of the paper and later, the author must check the final full text. Once the final PDF are ready, the paper is announced and becomes available for all audiences.

Format of paper

All contributions should be concise and written in English. Authors must assure that no part of the paper has been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere.

Format of Research papers (doc)

Format of Doctoral thesis summary (doc)

Format of Technical reports (doc)


The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.
