Submission Format and Review Guidelines

Peer Review Process

All the papers will go through a double blind review process and will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. A thorough check will be done and the guest editors will check any significant similarity between the manuscript under consideration and any published paper or submitted manuscripts of which they are aware. In such case, the article will be directly rejected without proceeding further. Guest editors will make all reasonable effort to receive the reviewer’s comments and recommendation on time.

The submitted papers must provide original research that has not been published nor currently under review by other venues. Previously published conference papers should be clearly identified by the authors at the submission stage and an explanation should be provided about how such papers have been extended.  At least 30% of new content is expected.

Submission Guidelines

Paper submissions for the special issue should follow the submission format and guidelines ( Each manuscript should not exceed 16 pages in length (inclusive of figures and tables).

Manuscripts should be submitted online at  and follow the “Submit A Manuscript” link on that page. Authors should select ‘TC: Advances of Neural Computing in the era of 4th industrial revolution’ during the submission step ‘Additional Information’.
