Manuscript Submission Overview

The International Journal of Telecommunications (IJT) Papers are selected for publication based on their relevance, clarity, topicality, the extent to which they advance knowledge, and their contribution to inspiring further development and research. The journal strives to maintain a balance between papers derived from research and from practical experience. Only manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the aims and scope of the IJT will be reviewed.

Authors should submit articles to the journal online by following instructions on the authors page of the journal website.

Submission of a paper implies that you are submitting your original work, that it has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that if accepted it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.

The IJT which you are submitting your manuscript employs a plagiarism detection system. By submitting your manuscript to this journal, you accept that your manuscript may be screened for plagiarism against previously published works.

All papers are reviewed by the editorial team on submission and triaged. This decision is made after an editorial ranking which is made on the basis based on novelty, impact and quality of the paper, as well as whether we feel the article would be well suited to the IJT readership.

  4. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. The Editor's decision is final.
  5. Editors are not involved in decisions about papers which they have written themselves or have been written by family members or colleagues or which relate to products or services in which the editor has an interest.
