Journal of Scientific & Practical Computing

Part A  


“Scientific & Practical Computing Journal – Part A” will mainly publish original, innovative and creative research results written by young investigators, college or graduate students, or newly graduated PhDs. Individuals from disadvantaged or underrepresented groups in science & technology, including HBCU students, graduates and people from countries where English is not the native language will receive priorities to publish their work. 

The journal is designed to serve young researchers, developers, graduate students and others who are interested in state-of-the art research activities in computing related science and technology.

The journal publishes valuable articles. There are three types of articles that will be considered for this journal:  Research Papers (8-15 pages in length), Short Letters (2-6 pages), and Discussions (6-8 pages). The Discussion section is for works that are not accepted by the journal but can still be printed as a paid publication by the author. The journal will also publish survey articles periodically.  


Topic areas include:


Graduate students and young researchers who are pursuing basic investigations in the areas of computing and computational sciences.


Guide for Authors

Submission of articles

Authors should submit an abstract of their articles electronically by using the journal's online submission and tracking tool at The editorial office will inform the author to send an electronic (PDF) file for further consideration when the article is in the scope of the journal.
