Guidelines for Authors

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 Original and unpublished research papers, based on theoretical or experimental works, are published in IJIT.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from time to time, and once an issue is announced to be a Theme Based Special Issue, Regular Issue for that period will not be published.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 only.

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 Paper, once submitted for consideration in IJIT, cannot be withdrawn unless the same is finally rejected.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 http://www.bvicam.ac.in/BIJIT/guidelines.asp.

2. Paper Structure and  Format
While preparing and formatting papers, authors must confirm to the under-mentioned MS-Word (.doc, .docx) format:-

The total length of the paper, including references and appendices, must not exceed six (06) Letter Size pages. It should be typed on one-side with double column, single-line spacing, 10 font size, Times New Roman, in MS Word.

The Top Margin should be 1”, Bottom 1”, Left 0.6”, and Right 0.6”. Page layout should be portrait with 0.5 Header and Footer margins. Select the option for different Headers and Footers for Odd and Even pages and different for First page in Layout (under Page Setup menu option of MS Word). Authors are not supposed to write anything in the footer.

The title should appear in single column on the first page in 14 Font size, below which the name of the author(s), in bold, with affiliation and E-mail ID should be provided centrally aligned in 12 font size.

To avoid unnecessary errors, the authors are strongly advised to use the "spell-check" and "grammar-check" functions of the word processor.

The complete template has been prepared and is available at http://www.bvicam.ac.in/BIJIT/Downloads/Template_For_Full_Paper_BIJIT.pdf.

The structure of the paper should be based on the following details:-

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 author.

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 results.

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.

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 for improvement.

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.
Web references
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.
Reference style
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 [8] obtained a different result ....'
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 hereunder:-
Reference to a journal publication:
[1] I. J. Cox, J. Kilian, T. Leighton, and T. Shamoon, “Secure spread-spectrum watermarking for multimedia”, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, Vol. 6, No. 12, pp. 64 - 69, December 1997.
Reference to a book:
[2] J. G. Proakis and D. G. Manolakis – Digital Signal Processing – Principles, Algorithms and Applications; Third Edition; Prentice Hall of India, 2003.

Mathematical Formulae
Present formulae using Equation editor in the line of normal text. Number consecutively any equations that have to be referred in the text

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).

4. Referees
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.

5. Copy Right
Copyright of all accepted papers will belong to IJIT and the author(s) must affirm that accepted Papers for publication in IJIT must not be re-published elsewhere without the written consent of the editor. To comply with this policy, authors will be required to submit a signed copy of Copyright Transfer Form, available at http://bvicam.ac.in/bijit/Downloads/BIJIT-Copyright-Agreement.pdf, after acceptance of their paper, before the same is published.

6. Final Proof of the Paper
One set of page proofs (as PDF files) will be sent by e-mail to the corresponding author or a link will be provided in the e-mail so that the authors can download the files themselves. These PDF proofs can be annotated; for this you need to download Adobe Reader version 7 (or higher) available free from http://get.adobe.com/reader. If authors do not wish to use the PDF annotations function, they may list the corrections and return them to IJIT in an e-mail. Please list corrections quoting line number. If, for any reason, this is not possible, then mark the corrections and any other comments on a printout of the proof and then scan the pages having corrections and e-mail them back, within 05 days. Please use this proof only for checking the typesetting, editing, completeness and correctness of the text, tables and figures. Significant changes to the paper that has been accepted for publication will not be considered at this stage without prior permission. It is important to ensure that all corrections are sent back to us in one communication: please check carefully before replying, as inclusion of any subsequent corrections cannot be guaranteed. Proofreading is solely authors’ responsibility. Note that IJIT will proceed with the publication of paper, if no response is received within 05 days.
