Aims & Scope
Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering (ICAE) was founded in 1993. "Based on the premise that interdisciplinary thinking and synergistic collaboration of disciplines can solve complex problems, open new frontiers, and lead to true innovations and breakthroughs, the cornerstone of industrial competitiveness and advancement of the society" as noted in the inaugural issue of the journal.
The focus of ICAE is the integration of leading edge and emerging computer and information technologies for innovative solution of engineering problems. The journal fosters interdisciplinary research and presents a unique forum for innovative computer-aided engineering. It also publishes novel industrial applications of CAE, thus helping to bring new computational paradigms from research labs and classrooms to reality. Areas covered by the journal include (but are not limited to) artificial intelligence, advanced signal processing, biologically inspired computing, cognitive modeling, concurrent engineering, database management, distributed computing, evolutionary computing, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms, geometric modeling, intelligent and adaptive systems, internet-based technologies, knowledge discovery and engineering, machine learning, mechatronics, mobile computing, multimedia technologies, networking, neural network computing, object-oriented systems, optimization and search, parallel processing, robotics virtual reality, and visualization techniques.

By default, articles published in Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering are available only to institutions and individuals with access rights. However, the journal offers all authors the option to purchase open access publication for their article as part of the IOS Press Open Library. This means that the final published version will be freely available to anyone worldwide, indefinitely, under a Creative Commons license and without the need to purchase access to the article. This is also referred to as “gold” open access.
Gold open access pricing
Authors who choose gold open access publication will be subject to an article publication charge of € 1500 / US$ 1500 for publication under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license or € 2150 / US$ 2150 for publication under the CC BY 4.0 license. Pricing is exclusive of possible taxes. After an article is accepted for publication, the corresponding author will be informed regarding the open access option during the production stages, and will have the opportunity to purchase open access for their article. It could be that the open access fee of an article is waived completely due an institutional agreement IOS Press has with the corresponding authors' institution. Please check the institutional agreements page for details.
Green open access
Authors who do not make use of the gold open access option may still make their article freely available using self-archiving, also referred to as green open access. Authors may make their final accepted manuscript available for free download from their personal or institutional website or institutional archive. This model is free for the author.
Journal of Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering
Journal of Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering is a peer-reviewed journal. All articles submitted to the journal undergo a single blind peer review process. This means that the identity of the authors is known with the reviewers but the identity of the reviewers is not communicated to the authors.
All submitted manuscripts 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. Reasons to reject a paper in the pre-screening process could for example be because the work does not fall within the aims and scope, the writing is of poor quality, the instructions to authors were not followed or the presented work is not novel. Important: all articles not created using the journal style templates for LaTeX or MS Word (see author instructions) are desk rejected.
Potential contributors are asked to email the following 8 items in the format requested directly to the Editor-in-Chief (paper will be processed only after the corresponding author provides all the requested files in the format request):
1) A statement that this manuscript is your “original unpublished work and the manuscript or any variation of it has not been submitted to another publication previously.” This journal does not consider papers rejected by other journals. You may request an exception to this policy but must submit ALL the correspondence and reviews received from the journal that rejected your paper to the Editor-in-Chief.
2) The pdf file of your paper prepared in double-column according to the attached journal template. This will be used to determine the length of your paper as journal pages.
3) Editable Word or Latex files of your paper prepared in double-column according to the attached journal template.
4) A separate document explaining
- the computational novelty of the paper beyond the published literature
- what significant real-life engineering problem the research is addressing, and
- significant finding/discovery of the research.
5) The names, affiliations, h-index from either Web of Science or Google Scholar Citations, and full contact information including email addresses of six to ten leading researchers as determined by publication of important journal articles in the subject area of the paper outside of your circle/region as a Word file. They should not be your advisor, advisee, research sponsor, or research collaborator. They can include senior researchers cited in your paper. I may choose some of the reviewers among them. Please disclose potential conflicts of interest if any. It is natural to presume that any researcher knows the leading researchers in his/her field of study (they are often cited in the paper) (List A).
6) Who are the top 10 researchers in the world in the subject of the paper as determined by publication of impactful journal articles in the subject area of the paper? Please provide their name, affiliation, email address, and h-index from either Web of Science or Google Scholar Citations as a Word file (List B). This will indicate whether the authors are familiar with the latest development in the field and their paper extends the state-of-the-art.
7) The attached Conscientious Reviewer form for each author (except students) as a Word file (for students provide the email address). Journal contributors commit to provide detailed reviews for papers submitted to the journal as the journal reviewers are often chosen among contributors to the journal. This is how thoughtful and detailed reviews are obtained in a timely fashion.
8) A Similarity Report using iThenticate or another similarity checking software (The Similarity to any other archival source should be less than 1%).
ICAE is a 5-review journal. Papers deemed suitable to be reviewed will be sent to 5 to 10 potential reviewers The Editor-in-Chief strives to ensure a typical turnaround time of 3 months.
Based on the collective recommendations of 5 reviewers, one of the following decisions will be made by the Editor-in-Chief and conveyed to the authors:
- Significant or innovative contribution, approved for publication
- Approved for publication with minor reservation or revisions
- Tentatively approved, subject to suggested revisions
- Declined but encouraged to revise and submit
