Peer Review Process
JCN reviews all manuscripts received. A manuscript is first reviewed for its format and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal. If the manuscript meets these two criteria, it is dispatched to three investigators in the field with relevant knowledge. Assuming the manuscript is sent to reviewers, JCN waits to receive opinions from at least two reviewers. In addition, if deemed necessary, a review of statistics may be requested. The acceptance criteria for all papers are based on the quality and originality of the research and its scientific significance. Acceptance of the manuscript is decided based on the critiques and recommended decision of the reviewers. An initial decision will normally be made within 2-3 months of receipt of a manuscript, and the reviewers’ comments are sent to the corresponding author by e-mail. The corresponding author must indicate the alterations that have been made in response to the reviewers’ comments item by item. A final decision on acceptance/rejection for publication is forwarded to the corresponding author from the editor.
All manuscripts from editors, employees, or members of the editorial board are processed same to other unsolicited manuscripts. During the review process, submitters will not engage in the decision process. Editors will not handle their own manuscripts although they are commissioned ones.
The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual (https://pspb.ieee.org/images/files/files/opsmanual.pdf). Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.
Article Processing Charge (APC)
The article processing charge (APC) is $1,300 per article (plus applicable local taxes) without page limits. (The new rule for APC and page limit takes effect for papers submitted after October 9, 2020)
For the papers submitted before October 8, 2020, the author will be requested to pay a mandatory page charge of $90 per printed page to cover part of the cost of publication. For papers in excess of six printed pages, a mandatory page charge of $150 per printed page will be requested for the printed pages beyond six pages. Detailed instructions will accompany the payment request.

Publishing and Manuscript Ethics Bylaw of KICS
- Article 1 (Purpose)
- The purpose of these bylaws is to present principles for the roles and responsibilities of a researcher who submits a manuscript on his/her research results for publication to conference proceedings and academic journals which are published by the Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences (hereafter referred to as the Society) so that integrity of the concerned manuscript can be identified clearly.
- Article 2 (Scope of Application)
- These bylaws shall be applied to the manuscripts to be submitted to or to be published in the academic journals published by the Society and to the manuscripts to be submitted to or to be presented at the academic conferences organized by the Society.
- Article 3 (Definition of Terms)
- 1. Forgery: The act of forging research results.
- 2. Falsification: The act of fabricating materials, equipment, processes, etc. of experiments or the act of changing or omitting research results in a false manner.
- 3. Distortion: The act of drawing wrong conclusions by exaggerating or reducing a part of the relevant data.
- 4. Plagiarism: The act of using - as is or in a changed form - all or part of another person’s research results without identifying the source or using all or part of the key concepts of another person’s research results without identifying the source.
- 5. Self-plagiarism: The act of using - as is or in a changed form - all or part of one’s own research results already published, without identifying the source.
- 6. Overlapping submission: The act of submitting substantial content overlapping with one’s own paper already submitted or published.
- Article 4 (Authorship)
- 1. The author of a manuscript refers to the one who has contributed to the completion of the manuscript by planning and executing the research and analyzing the research results.
- 2. The corresponding author refers to the one who takes charge of the entire process of submitting the manuscript, and he/she should obtain approval of all co-authors in such matters, such as inclusion of co-authors, submission of the manuscript and revision of the manuscript.
- Article 5 (Submission of Manuscript)
- 1. The manuscript to be submitted to the Society’s academic journals or academic conferences should include new findings or views, new interpretations of existing studies or developmental understanding of existing studies.
- 2. The research results in the manuscript to be submitted to the Society’s academic journals or academic conferences should not be forged, fabricated or distorted.
- 3. In the case of quoting another person’s research results, the source should be identified without exemption.
- 4. In the case of using figures, tables, sentences or major conclusions from one’s own research results already published, they should be identified as quotes without exemption. Also, all related or similar manuscripts in the course of submission, reviewing or publication (including those in other languages) should be identified.
- 5. Submission to the Society’s academic journals is allowable in the following cases:
- a) It is possible to develop in a meaningful way a manuscript already presented at an academic conference organized by the Society or other domestic or international academic societies, for submission to one of the Society's academic journals. However, the manuscript already presented at the academic conference should be quoted without fail, and any meaningful development made to the submitted manuscript should be identified. In case of only an abstract was presented at a previous academic conference, submission of the concerned manuscript to one of the Society's academic journals is also possible, if this fact should be announced without fail.
