How to publish in this journal


Argument & Computation (A&C) is an open access journal providing a dedicated venue for the dissemination of high quality papers concerning state-of-the-art advancements in the field of computational argumentation. A&C stands as an interdisciplinary journal by nature, lying at the crossing of the studies on artificial, natural and theoretical argumentation, acknowledging the richness of diversity and promoting integration. The journal welcomes submissions presenting original scientific results and innovative applications, relevant to this multi-faceted domain and addressing foundational, design, or implementation aspects of computational models and systems thereof, extending the state-of-the-art in research. Proposals for timely reviews and tutorials and for special issues are encouraged and should be discussed with the Editors-in-Chief. Topics of interest are exemplified, but not exhausted, by the following list: Formal models for argumentation Semi-formal and informal models for argumentation Dialogue based on argumentation Argumentation and computational linguistics Argumentation and defeasible reasoning Argumentation and game theory Argumentation and probability Argumentation and logic programming Argumentation and narrative Analogical argumentation Reasoning about action and time with argumentation Decision making based on argumentation Strategies in argumentation Argumentation for coordination and coalition formation Argument-based negotiation, dispute resolution and mediation Argumentation, trust and reputation Argumentation and normative systems Argumentation and human-computer interaction Argumentation and machine learning Argumentation and explainable AI Computational properties of argumentation systems Implementation of argumentation systems Tools for supporting and teaching argumentation Innovative applications based on argumentation.

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.
