Aims & Scope
The aim of research into Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering is to develop systems that replicate the analytical, problem solving and learning capabilities of the brain. These systems bring the benefits of knowledge and intelligence to the solution of complex problems. This international journal provides a forum for publishing the results of recent research into the applications of intelligent systems, and also the tools and techniques necessary for them. Authors are invited to submit original unpublished work that is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere, on the following topics:
Generic Intelligent Tools, Techniques and Algorithms:
Knowledge-Based Systems, Expert Systems, Neural Networks, Fuzzy Techniques and Systems, Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Computing, Hybrid Intelligent Systems, Intelligent Agents and Multi-Agent Systems, Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining, Machine Learning, Cognitive Modelling, Knowledge Representation and Management, Planning, Spatial & Temporal Reasoning, Knowledge Acquisition.
Applications using Intelligent Techniques:
Industrial Control and Monitoring, Fault Diagnosis, Robotics, Image Processing, Machine & Computer Vision, Medical & Diagnostic Systems, Financial & Stock Market Monitoring and Prediction, Speech Processing and Synthesis, Natural Language Processing, Environmental Monitoring, Power Electronics & Drives, High Voltage Systems, Engine Control and Vehicle Applications, Intelligent Signal Processing and Wavelets, Intelligent Customer Support systems.
Emerging Intelligent Technologies:
Artificial Intelligence and the Internet, Information Agents on the Internet, Intelligent E-commerce/E-business and E-learning, Intelligent Information Retrieval, Intelligent Web Mining & Applications, Intelligent User Interfaces, Bioinformatics using Intelligent & Machine Learning Techniques, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, Virtual Reality & Multi-Media Intelligent Information Systems, Artificial Life, Biologically Inspired Computation.

By default, articles published in the International Journal of Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems 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 € 1250 / US$ 1450 for publication under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license or € 1850 / US$ 2080 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.
International Journal of Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems Peer Review Policy
International Journal of Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems 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. Please visit our reviewer guidelines for further information about how to conduct a review.
All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editors-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.
Papers deemed suitable to be reviewed will be assigned a handling editor. The handling editor will then invite reviewers to comment on the work. Typically decisions are based on three reviews, in some circumstances a minimum of two reviews may be deemed sufficient to make a decision on a paper. The Editors-in-Chief strive to ensure a typical turnaround time of 6 months.
Reviewers are asked to judge a paper on at least:
- Originality, novelty and significance of results
- Technical quality of work
- Comprehensibility and presentation of the paper
- Overall impression
Based on the received reviews the handling editor will propose to the Editors-in-Chief a recommendation:
- Minor revisions required
- Major revisions required
- Revise and resubmit
They mean the following:
- Accept: The manuscript is suitable for publication and only requires minor polishing; thus, no further reviews are requested.
- Minor revisions required: The authors are required to make moderate changes to their manuscript. The manuscript becomes acceptable for publication if the changes proposed by the reviewers and editors are successfully addressed. The revised manuscript will be examined by the Editors-in-Chief and possibly sent back to all (or a selection of) reviewers for a second round of reviews. Authors are requested to provide a letter to the reviewers detailing the improvements made for the resubmission.
- Major revisions required: The manuscript cannot be accepted for publication in its current form. However, a major revision which addresses all issues raised by the reviewers may be acceptable for publication. The revised manuscript will undergo a full second round of review. Authors are requested to provide a letter to the reviewers detailing the improvements made for the resubmission.
- Revise and resubmit: In its current form, the manuscript is not suitable for publication. A resubmission would require substantial revisions and is only encouraged in special cases.
- Reject: The manuscript is rejected as it is deemed to be out of scope, not relevant, or not meeting the journal’s quality standards in terms of significance, novelty, and/or presentation.
Authors are notified by the Editors-in-Chief, whose decision is final.
