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.
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.
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 On the other hand, the papers submitted but not taken into the evaluation process yet, will be asked to be withdrawn by the corresponding author or the editor will do that instead.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
Manuscripts submitted to APJESS should neither be published previously nor be under consideration for publication in another journal.
The main article types are as follows:
• read the Aims & Scope to see if your manuscript is suitable for the journal,
• use the Microsoft Word template to prepare your manuscript;
• Download Copyright Transfer Form and signed by all authors.
• make sure that issues about Ethical Principles and Publication Policy, Copyright and Licensing, Archiving Policy, Repository Policy have been appropriately considered;
• Ensure that all authors have approved the content of the submitted manuscript.
The main text should be formed in the following order:
Manuscript: The article should start with an introduction written in scientific language, putting thoughts together from diverse disciplines combining evidence-based knowledge and logical arguments, conveying views about the aim and purpose of the article. It must address all readers in general. The technical terms, symbols, abbreviations must be defined at the first time when they are used in the article. The manuscript should be formed in the following order:

Abstract: We strongly encourage authors to use the following style of structured abstracts, but without headings: (1) Background: Place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the study; (2) Methods: briefly describe the main methods or treatments applied; (3) Results: summarize the article’s main findings; (4) Conclusions: indicate the main conclusions or interpretations. The abstract should be an objective representation of the article and it must not contain results that are not presented and substantiated in the main text and should not exaggerate the main conclusions. A line space should be left to the key words that will consist of at least 3 and maximum 5 words. Mathematical expressions should not be included in essence. For research articles, abstracts should give a pertinent overview of the work.
All these sections should be numbered. The text can also have sub-headings and sub-titles (2.1, 2.2, ...etc.).
Academic Platform Journal of Engineering and Smart Systems(APJESS), applies double blind peer-review process in which both the reviewer and the author are anonymous. Reviewer selection for each submitted article is up to area editors, and reviewers are selected based on the reviewer’s expertise, competence, and previous experience in reviewing papers for APJES.Every submitted article is evaluated by area editor, at least, for an initial review. If the paper reaches minimum quality criteria, fulfills the aims, scope and policies of APJES, it is sent to at least two reviewers for evaluation.
Publication Fees: No fee required (no article submission charges or processing charges).
