How to publish in this journal


The International Journal of Unconventional Computing offers the opportunity for rapid publication of theoretical and experimental results in non-classical computing. Specific topics include but are not limited to: physics of computation (e.g. conservative logic, thermodynamics of computation, reversible computing, quantum computing, collision-based computing with solitons, optical logic) chemical computing (e.g. implementation of logical functions in chemical systems, image processing and pattern recognition in reaction-diffusion chemical systems and networks of chemical reactors) bio-molecular computing (e.g. conformation based, information processing in molecular arrays, molecular memory) cellular automata as models of massively parallel computing complexity (e.g. computational complexity of non-standard computer architectures; theory of amorphous computing; artificial chemistry) logics of unconventional computing (e.g. logical systems derived from space-time behavior of natural systems; non-classical logics; logical reasoning in physical, chemical and biological systems) smart actuators (e.g. molecular machines incorporating information processing, intelligent arrays of actuators) novel hardware systems (e.g. cellular automata VLSIs, functional neural chips) mechanical computing (e.g. micromechanical encryption, computing in nanomachines, physical limits to mechanical computation).

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
