Journal of Computer Science

Welcome from Dr. Abdalah Rababah

Dear Computer Science Community,

I am honored to have been selected as the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Computer Science (JCS) published by Science Publications after serving more than four years as an Associate Editor for the journal. We will continue in the same positive tendency that has been solidified by the previous EiC. JCS will continue to focus on quality contributions in the fields covered by the journal.

Our mission is to continue serving the scientific community by publishing high quality research and review papers. We are committed to raising the scientific impact of JCS and to its inclusion in the leading abstracting and indexing databases

As the field of CS is very vibrant, expanding very fast, and interacting with many other fields and disciplines, then our vision is to make JCS a forum for cutting edge innovations. Both theoretical and experimental coherent findings will be considered for publication. To achieve these goals, a rapid editorial handling, reviewing, and publication process are adopted without compromising the quality of the accepted papers. To keep an eye on capturing new ideas and innovations and to cope with the extravagant nature of the field, the publication of special issues on selected topics will be one of the JCS’s priorities.

The new team is willing to serve the CS community and welcomes your submissions. Your feedback, comments, ideas, and suggestions in any form to strengthen the status and improve the characteristics and vision of JCS are most welcome.

We, the EiC, the AE, the Editors, and the reviewers, would like to thank the previous EiC, Fabrizio Riguzzi, for his efforts and role in improving the quality of the journal and streamlining the review process. We have enjoyed working with him and benefit from his experience and determination. I am excited about this experience and looking forward to your support.

Farewell from Dr. Fabrizio Riguzzi

Dear Computer Science Community,

After nearly two years as Associate Editor and nearly three years as Editor in Chief of the Journal of Computer Science, the time has come for me to take a step back.

Unfortunately my growing academic committments do not allow me to dedicate the time and energy that the direction of the journal deserves. I can leave the post of Editor in Chief serenely because I know that the journal will be in the safe hands of Abdalah Rababah, the next Editor in Chief, who served as Associate Editor for more than four years and whose scientific reputation and competence will surely benefit JCS.

These almost five years have been a rewarding experience for me where I had the opportunity to be exposed to some of the best research in the field coming from all parts of the world.

Thanks to an excellent editorial team composed by the Associate Editors, Abdalah Rababah and Elena Bellodi, and the members of the Editorial Board, we were able to achieve important goals: we continued to improve the quality of the published articles, we maintained indexing in Scopus and increased the CiteScore of the journal, that as of January 2019 is 0.64, up from 0.47 of 2017.

I wish to thank all members of the editorial team, the guest editors, the authors and the wonderful guys at Science Publications for their committment, cooperation and integrity that made this five years so gratifying and fulfilling.

My best wishes to Abdalah for further growing the reputation of the journal and the service it plays for the community.
