  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • The submission is accompanied by a short cover letter containing the following information:

    - why the paper is submitted to Computer Assisted Methods in Engineering ans Science,
    - the highlights, which consist of a short collection of bullet points (3-5) that capture the novel results of your research and the new methods that were used during the study (if any),
    - 3 names of suggested reviewers together with their affiliations, and e-mail addresses; at least 2 suggested reviewers should be affiliated with other scientific institutions than the affiliations of the authors.

Author Guidelines

Submission of manuscripts. Submission of a manuscript for publication in CAMES implies that the paper is original and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere; that permission for publication, if needed, has been granted by appropriate sources; and that the first author ensures that other authors have approved the paper for publication. Manuscripts should be submitted online in the PDF format. All further correspondence, proofs, and offprints will be sent to the first author, unless indicated otherwise by the authors. The submitted manuscript should be accompanied (in the Comments for the Editor box or in a seperate file) by a short cover letter containing the following information:

  • why the paper is submitted to Computer Assisted Methods in Engineering ans Science,
  • the highlights, which consist of a short collection of bullet points (3-5) that capture the novel results of your research and the new methods that were used during the study (if any),
  • 3 names of suggested reviewers together with their affiliations, and e-mail addresses; at least 2 suggested reviewers should be affiliated with other scientific institutions than the affiliations of the authors.

Style of manuscript. The language of the journal is English. The text should be divided into numbered and titled sections and, if needed, subsections and sub-subsections. SI units are mandatory.

Mathematical formulas referred to in the text must be consecutively numbered, with Arabic numerals in parentheses ( ); numbering of other formulas is not obligatory though advisable. Publications cited in the paper should be referred to in the text by Arabic numerals in brackets [ ] and listed at the end of the manuscript in alphabetical order. Each item should contain full bibliographical data in the following format:

[1] I. Author, I.I. Author. Title of the Book. Publisher, Place of Publication, 1985.
[2] I. Author, I.I. Author. Title of the paper. Title of the Journal, 47: 984–996, 1987, doi: 10.1010/1010.
[3] I. Author, Title of the paper in a collection. In: I. Editor, I.I. Editor [Eds], Title of the Collection, 151–177. Publisher, Place of Publication, 1991.

In exceptional cases (bibliographies, surveys, etc.), another format of the publication references may be accepted after prior approval by the Editor.

Title page. The title page should contain the title, authors' affiliations and abstract. The title should be as brief as possible. If its length exceeds 50 characters, a shortened running head should be proposed. The authors' affiliations should contain full names and addresses of all the authors, possibly with an indication to whom all further correspondence, proofs and offprints should be sent (if other than the first author). The abstract should be at most 150 words long.

Figures and tables. Tables and figures should be enclosed in separate files. The provided figures should be original drawings or printouts (no photocopies); glossy photographs of very good contrast are also acceptable. Exceptionally, colour figures or photographs will be accepted, provided the colour is essential for the exposition.

Sending computer files. Upon acceptance of the paper, authors preparing their manuscripts (source files)  with word processors, DTP programs and computer graphic editors are asked to provide the source files containing the text and (separately) figures through the CAMES online journal system or by e-mail (cames@ippt.pan.pl). The TeX standard or its extensions (e.g., LaTeX) are preferable. A LaTeX template file is available from the Journal's web site (http://cames.ippt.pan.pl). Figures may be sent as bitmap files (preferably in one of the BMP, or TIFF formats), or as object (vector) files (preferably in the PostScript format). Figures coded as bitmap files should be of sufficient resolution (no lower than 300 dpi) to ensure high quality and legibility of the printout.

LaTeX template file

LaTeX users are encouraged to make use of the file cames0.sty. It contains a number of definitions that can be helpful in making the manuscript best fit requirements of the Editorial Office as well as the final page layout of the Journal. To employ the definitions, please, download the file and write the following declarations in your source file:

- in LaTeX 2.09:
\documentstyle[11pt,cames0]{article}
\begin{document}\sloppy
% the text of the paper in LaTeX
\end{document}
- in LaTeX 2e:
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{cames0}
\begin{document}\sloppy
% the text of the paper in LaTeX
\end{document}

Please, note that the definitions provided with cames0.sty do not allow to form the Journal's specific title page layout or running page headers, but these features are not important at the stage of manuscript pereparation.

 

Peer Review

The journal submissions are reviewed following with the golden rules and in the peer-review good practice recommended by the European Association of Science Editors (http://media.wiley.com/product_ancillary/94/14051315/DOWNLOAD/app1.pdf).
