Aim & Scope


Academic Platform Journal of Engineering and Smart Systems(APJESS) is a peer reviewed open-access journal which focuses on the research and applications related to smart systems and artificial intelligence. APJESS accepts both original research papers and review articles written in English. It is essential that the information created in scientific study needs to be new, suggest new method or give a new dimension to an existing information. Articles submitted for publication are evaluated by at least two referees in case the editor finds potential scientific merit, and final acceptance and rejection decision are taken by editorial board. The authors are not informed about the name of referees who evaluate the papers. In similar way, the referees are not allowed to see the names of authors. The papers which do not satisfy the scientific level of the journal can be refused with unexplained reason.

There are two key principles that APJESS was founded on: Firstly, to publish the most exciting, novel, technically sound, and clearly presented researches with respect to the subjects of smart systems and artificial intelligence. Secondly, to provide a rapid turn-around time possible for reviewing and publishing, and to disseminate the articles freely for research, teaching and reference purposes.

Any information about a submitted manuscript cannot be disclosed by the editor and any other editorial staff to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher. No confidential information or ideas obtained through peer review can be used for personal advantage.

Journal History

The journal was published between 2013-2021 with the title of "Academic Platform - Journal of Engineering and Science". It will be published under its new title "Academic Platform Journal of Engineering and Smart Systems" after 2022.

Former Title: Academic Platform - Journal of Engineering and Science

Years: 2013-2021

Note: The editorial board of APJES decided to focus the scope of the journal to the topics related to smart systems and artificial intelligence. The manuscripts from all engineering and science disciplines which contain artificial intelligent techniques or smart system approach could be submitted to be evaluated for possible publication in APJES. However, the papers under evaluation by blind peer reviewers will continue to proceed evaluation process. On the other hand, the papers submitted but not taken into the evaluation process yet, will be asked to be withdrawn by the corresponding author or the editor will do that instead.


APJESS aims to publish research and review papers dealing with, but not limited to, the following research fields:

• Knowledge Representation and Reasoning,
• Data Mining & Data Science,
• Supervised, Semi-Supervised and Unsupervised Learning,
• Machine Learning (ML) and Neural Computing,
• Evolutionary Computation,
• Natural Language Processing, Internet of Things, Big Data
• Fuzzy Systems,
• Intelligent Information Processing,
• AI Powered Robotic Systems,
• Multi-agent Systems and Programming for Smart Systems
