Aims and Scope

Journal of Information and Telecommunication (JIT) aims to provide the most complete and reliable source of information for a wide range of technical areas, covering a large variety of topics in telecommunications, information technology, media technologies and media communications, and representing the process of the convergence of the fields of telecommunications, digital broadcasting and information technology. JIT focuses on the field of infocommunication as a natural expansion of telecommunication, with information processing and content handling functions which include all types of electronic communications. The emphasis will be on publishing quality articles rapidly and making them available to researchers worldwide in order to disseminate new knowledge and technology for the benefit of everyone, ranging from the academic and professional research communities to industry practitioners. JIT will be essential reading for scientists and researchers who wish to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field.

JIT aims to provide a platform for high quality and cutting edge research on relevant studies to the global research community. The journal aims to achieve this by administering high standards in its peer review process, and also by adopting a fully Open Access publication model to facilitate access to all its published research.

In particular, JIT aims to address infocommunication issues which are unique to developing nations. For example, research topics on smart telecommunication systems for developing countries, applications for processing Asian languages in telecommunication systems etc., are encouraged. 

Journal Scope 

JIT is a peer-reviewed international journal that publishes high-quality scientific articles (both theory and practice), survey and position papers covering all aspects of infocommunication. The following topics will be of interest to the journal, but not limited to: 
•    Information theory/coding 
•    Information network security, standards, applications 
•    Information processing in telecommunication systems 
•    Internet/web based systems/products 
•    Internet of things 
•    Network interconnection 
•    Wire, wireless, adhoc, mobile networks 
•    Impact of new services (economic and organizational impact) 
•    Fiberoptics and photonic switching 
•    Dsl, adsl, cable tv and their impact 
•    Design and analysis issues in metropolitan area networks 
•    Networking protocols 
•    Configuring telecommunication systems with reliability and availability 
•    Cost benefit analysis and economic impact of telecommunication systems 
•    Standardization and regulatory issues 
•    Security, privacy and encryption in telecommunication systems 
•    Network planning, design, administration 
•    Sensor/ad hoc networks 
•    Computational linguistics, digital speech 
•    Distributed/cooperative media 
•    Interactive communication media/content 
•    Performance evaluation of wide area and local networks 
•    Cellular, mobile and satellite based systems 
•    Dynamics and capacity expansion of telecommunication systems 
•    Multimedia based systems, their design configuration and impact 
•    Configuration of distributed systems 
•    Performance analysis of local area networks 
•    Intelligent information systems 
•    Intelligent information retrieval, digital libraries, and network information retrieval 
•    Distributed multimedia and hypermedia information space design, implementation and navigation 
•    Visual interfaces, visual query languages, and visual expressiveness of IIS 
•    Machine learning, knowledge discovery, and data mining 
•    Data and knowledge engineering 

JIT also welcomes high quality review articles that summarise, compare, and evaluate methodologies and representations that are proposed for the field of information technology and telecommunication. Similarly, summaries and comparisons of full-scale applications are welcomed, particularly those where scientific shortcomings have hindered success. Typically, such papers have expanded literature reviews and discussion of findings that reflect mastery of the current body of knowledge and propose novel additions to contemporary research. 

Peer Review Policy 
All peer review is triple blind and submission is online via Editorial Manager

Taylor & Francis/Routledge are committed to the widest possible dissemination of its journals to non-profit institutions in developing countries. Our STAR initiative offers individual researchers in Africa, South Asia and many parts of South East Asia the opportunity to gain one month’s free online access to 1,300 Taylor & Francis journals.
