How to publish in this journal



Computer-Aided Design and Applications is a world-leading journal in the field of CAD, publishing papers in both traditional areas as well as in new and emerging fields of the discipline, including theoretical papers but with special focus on the applied. The journal welcomes technical papers on new technologies and their implications; application papers on applications of existing techniques; survey papers on the state-of-the art in a particular sub-domain; review papers on current events/developments; and product demonstrations to keep readers up to date on important new products. All manuscript submissions are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor-in-Chief, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to rigorous peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees. All peer review is double blind. Computer-Aided Design and Applications is aimed at researchers, academics, developers, technical and business managers, as well as members of relevant government sectors working in or responsible for the general area of CAD/CAM. Disciplines represented include various forms of engineering; industrial design and general manufacturing; many disciplines of science, e.g. mathematics, computer science and psychology; arts and creative design; bio-medical areas; CAD/CAM enterprises dealing with large scale product management, multi-national consulting and system building.

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.
