International Journal of Information Technology (IJIT), official journal of BVICAM, New Delhi , is a peer reviewed refereed bi-annual research
journal having ISSN 0973-5658, being published since 2009,
in both, Hard Copy as well as Soft copy. Two issues; January –
June and July – December, are published every year. The journal
intends to disseminate original scientific research and knowledge
in the field of, primarily, Computer Science and Information
Technology and, generally, all interdisciplinary streams of
Engineering Sciences. Original and unpublished research
papers, based on theoretical or experimental works, are published
in IJIT. We publish two types of issues; Regular Issues
and Theme Based Special Issues. Announcement regarding
special issues is made from time to time, and once an issue is
announced to be a Theme Based Special Issue, Regular Issue for
that period will not be published.
Papers for Regular Issues of IJIT can
be submitted, round the year. After the detailed
review process, when a paper is finally accepted, the decision
regarding the issue in which the paper will be published, will be
taken by the Editorial Board; and the author will be intimated
accordingly. However, for Theme Based
Special Issues, time bound Special Call for Papers will be
announced and the same will be applicable for that specific issue
Submission of a paper implies that the work described has not been
published previously (except in the form of an abstract or
academic thesis) and is not under consideration for publication
elsewhere. The submission should be approved by all the authors of
the paper. If a paper is finally accepted, the authorities, where
the work had been carried out, shall be responsible for not
publishing the work elsewhere in the same form. Paper, once
submitted for consideration in IJIT, cannot be withdrawn unless
the same is finally rejected.
1. Paper Submission
Authors will be required to submit, MS-Word compatible (.doc, .docx),
papers electronically after logging in at the Springer portal and accessing
the submit paper link, available at
https://www.editorialmanager.com/BJIT/default.aspx. Once the paper
is uploaded successfully, our automated Paper Submission System
assigns a Unique Paper ID, acknowledges it on the screen and also
sends an acknowledgement email to the author at her / his
registered email ID. Consequent upon this, the authors can check
the status of their papers at the portal itself, in the Member
Area, after login, and can also submit revised paper, based on the
review remarks, from member area itself. The authors must quote /
refer the paper ID in all future correspondences. Kindly note that
we do not accept E-Mailic submission. To understand the detailed
step by step process for submitting a paper, click at
2. Paper Structure and Format
While preparing and formatting papers, authors must confirm to the
under-mentioned MS-Word (.doc, .docx) format:-

The complete template has been prepared and is available at
The structure of the paper should be based on the following
Essential Title Page Information
Title: Title should be Concise and informative. Avoid
abbreviations and formulae to the extent possible.
Authors’ Names and Affiliations: Present the authors'
affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below their
names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript
letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the
appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each
affiliation, including the country name and e-mail address of each
Corresponding author: Clearly indicate who will handle
correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication. Ensure
that phone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in
addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address.
A concise abstract not exceeding 200 words is required. The
abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the
principal results and major conclusions. References and
non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided. As a
last paragraph of the abstract, 05 to 10 Index Terms, in
alphabetic order, under the heading Index Terms (Index Terms -
…….) must be provided.
Define all the abbreviations that are used in the paper and
present a list of abbreviations with their definition in
Nomenclature section. Ensure consistency of abbreviations
throughout the article. Do not use any abbreviation in the paper,
which has not been defined and listed in Nomenclature section.
Subdivision - numbered sections
Divide article into numbered Sections as 1, 2, 3, …... and its
heading should be written in CAPITAL LETTERS. The Subsections
should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. and
should be written in Title Case. The Abstract, Nomenclature,
Appendix, Acknowledgement and References will not be included in
section numbering. In fact, section numbering will start from
Introduction and will continue till Conclusion. The Subsections
should also be given a brief heading, written in title case, and
should appear in separate line. All headings of sections and
subsections should be left aligned.
State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate
background, with a detailed literature survey or a summary of the
A Theory Section should extend, not repeat the information
discussed in Introduction. In contrast, a Calculation Section
represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.
Results should be clear and concise.
This section should explore the importance of the results of the
work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section
is often appropriate.
CONCLUSION AND FUTURE SCOPE
The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short
Conclusion Section. In this section, the author(s) should also
briefly discuss the limitations of the research and Future Scope
If there are multiple appendices, they should be identified as A,
B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given
separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent
appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similar nomenclature should be
followed for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.
If desired, authors may provide acknowledgements at the end of the
article, before the references. The organizations / individuals
who provided help during the research (e.g. providing language
help, writing assistance, proof reading the article, sponsoring
the research, etc.) may be acknowledged here.
Citation in text
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also
present in the reference list (and vice versa). The references in
the reference list should follow the standard IEEE reference style
of the journal and citation of a reference.
As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the
reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI,
author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.),
should also be given. Web references can be listed separately
(e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if
desired, or can be included in the reference list, as well.
Text: Indicate references by number(s) in square brackets in line
with the text. The actual authors can be referred to, but the
reference number(s) must always be given. Example: '..... as
demonstrated [3,6]. Barnaby and Jones  obtained a different
List: Number the references (numbers in square
brackets) in the list, according to the order in which they appear
in the text.
Two sample examples, for writing reference list, are given

Captions and Numbering for Figure and Tables
Ensure that each figure / table has been numbered and captioned.
Supply captions separately, not attached to the figure. A caption
should comprise a brief title and a description of the
illustration. Figures and tables should be numbered separately,
but consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text.
3. Style for Illustrations
All line drawings, images, photos, figures, etc. will be published
in black and white, in Hard Copy of IJIT. Authors will need to
ensure that the letters, lines, etc. will remain legible, even
after reducing the line drawings, images, photos, figures, etc. to
a two-column width, as much as 4:1 from the original. However,
line drawings, images, photos, figures, etc. may be published in
colour, if requested. For this, authors will need to submit two
types of Camera Ready Copy (CRC), after final acceptance of their
paper, one for Hard Copy (compatible to black and white printing)
and another for Soft Copy (compatible to colour printing).
Please submit, with the paper, the names, addresses, contact
numbers and e-mail addresses of three potential referees. Note
that the editor has sole right to decide whether or not the
suggested reviewers are to be used.
