How to publish in this journal


The International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications (IJPCC) is multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary vehicle to discuss the future where computers and computing devices will be available naturally and unobtrusively everywhere, anytime, and by different means in our daily living, working, learning, business, infotainment environments. Tremendous opportunities exist for novel services/applications that are more immersive, more intelligent, and more interactive in both real and cyber spaces. IJPCC is thus a premier channel to share research in the emerging field of pervasive computing and communications including future directions and issues. Its published research includes: experimental or theoretical results, novel algorithms, design methodologies, work-in-progress, experiences, case studies, and trend-setting ideas.

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.

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.
