Please use our submission template (DOCX) to prepare your manuscript for submission. Note that the submission will undergo a double-blind review process. Hence, the submitted file MUST NOT include any author information. Author information will be added after the blind review process. Paper length is up to 10 pages, except the review article could be written up to 15 pages. 

Ethics in Publishing

You will be required to accept the Information Technology International Journal (ITIJ) Ethics Statement for Authors when you submit your paper to the journal. The statement covers authorship, originality, and conflicts of interest. Please read this statement to ensure your submission complies.

To verify originality, your article may be checked by the originality detection service Turnitin. Note that conference proceedings are a form of publication.

Changes to Authorship

If you wish to add, delete or rearrange the authors of your accepted paper:



If your paper is selected for publication you will be expected to sign our copyright assignment form. Where necessary you must obtain permission to publish material protected by copyright.

Author Rights

For the rights of the author to reuse your work, please refer to our Publication Ethics and Policy page.
Role of the Funding Source

You are requested to identify who provided financial support for the conduct of the research and/or preparation of the article and to briefly describe the role of the sponsor(s), if any, in study design; in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data; in the writing of the report; and in the decision to submit the article for publication. If the funding source(s) had no such involvement then this should be stated.

Publishing Policy

If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be able to access and download the published article online on the website. 


Papers must be in good, grammatically correct English, and if your paper cannot be understood it will be rejected. If English is not your native language you should seek the help of a English Languange Editing or professional translator.
Author(s) can select one of the available service according to their specific needs, terms and condition. See:

Supplementary Material:
 Appendices and other Supplementary Material are permitted.
Nomenclature and Units

Please take care that all terminology and notation used will be widely understood. Abbreviations and acronyms should be spelled out in full at their first occurrence in the text.
SI units are strongly recommended. If non-SI units must be used, SI equivalents (or conversion factors) must also be given. Please use the spellings 'litre' and 'metre' (a 'meter' is a measuring instrument).
Please use a decimal point rather than a comma in numbers (i.e. 3.142 not 3,142).
Write equations in dimensionless form or in metric units. Please use italic letters to denote variables (in text or in displayed equations).

All figures should be embedded correctly positioned within your Word files, and should also be supplied as separate graphics files in their original formats. EPS, TIFF or PSD formats are preferred. Use a minimum of 300 dpi.
Figures should appear in numerical order, be described in the body of the text and be positioned close to where they are first cited. Each figure should have a caption which describes the illustration, and that can be understood independently of the main text. The caption should be given in the text, and not on the figure itself.
Because figures may be resized in the course of production please use scale bars and not magnification factors.
Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical lines.

Make sure all figures and tables will fit inside the text area.

ITIJ prefers articles that refer mainly to journal articles, research reports, and conference proceedings, rather than rely heavily on textbooks or handbooks to demonstrate articles' novelty in the subject discussed. The use of Mendeley as a tool in referencing is preferable and encouraged. References should be carefully checked for completeness, accuracy, and consistency.

The author (s) should cite publications in the text following the IEEE citation style. At the end of the paper, a reference list in alphabetical order should be supplied as follows:
