The journal of Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research (AAIR) is an international and interdisciplinary scholarly open access journal. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research in as much detail as possible about Artificial Intelligence(AI). Full experimental details and/or study methods must be provided for research articles so that the results can be reproduced. Papers describing applications of AI are also welcome, but the focus should be on how new and novel AI methods advance performance in application areas, rather than a presentation of yet another application of conventional AI methods. Papers on applications should describe a principled solution, emphasize its novelty, and present an in-depth evaluation of the AI techniques being exploited.

AAIR welcomes papers on broad aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that constitute advances in the overall field including, but not limited to, cognition and AI. AAIR covers all areas of artificial intelligence (AI), publishing refereed research articles, survey articles, and technical notes. Apart from regular papers, the journal also accepts Research Notes, Research Field Reviews, Position Papers, and Book Reviews. The journal will also consider summary papers that describe challenges and competitions from various areas of AI. Such papers should motivate and describe the competition design as well as report and interpret competition results, with an emphasis on insights that are of value beyond the competition (series) itself.

How to prepare your manuscript for AAIR

  • Before starting to preparation of your manuscript please be sure that you have an "ethical committee permission" certificate (or document) for your work (if it is NEEDED).
  • After finished preperation of your manuscript: A similarity check should be done by authors and this report should be uploaded along with the manuscript (similarity rate should NOT be more than %20). Any program (e.g. ithenticate programme) may be used for this purposes. This is vital for ethical and Plagiarism Policy for AAIR.

  • Please use Template File and also follow instruction detailed below to prepare your manuscript.
  • Note that in the cover letter, authors should nominate three potential reviewers. The editorial office may not use these nominations, but this may help to speed up the selection of appropriate reviewers. In the cover letter you may enter details of anyone who you would prefer not to review your manuscript.
  • Authors submitting a manuscript must have obtained any printing permissions necessary in advice and agree to transfer the copyright of their article to the Publisher. 

Research Articles

A research article reports the results of original research and assesses its contribution to the body of knowledge in a given area with the relevant data and findings in an orderly, logical manner. Research articles should be no longer than 15 pages, should have an abstract of 300 words at most, should contain a limit of 60 references, and should have no more than 10 figures and tables combined.
Review Articles
A review article is written to summarize the recent developments, improvements, discoveries, and ideas in various subjects. Review articles should present an unbiased summary of the current understanding of the topic. Review articles should cover subjects that fall within the scope of the journal and are of active, current interest. Review articles should be no longer than 15 pages, should have an abstract of 300 words at most, should contain a limit of 120 references, and should have no more than 12 figures and tables combined. Principal sections should be numbered consecutively (1. Introduction, 2. Historical background, etc.), and subsections should be numbered 1.1., 1.2., etc. All reviews should contain an introduction section and a conclusion section, with relevant section headings in between. The introduction should explain the importance of the subject, the text should be comprehensive and detailed, and the references should be exhaustive. Review articles should be written with the support of original published studies of the author(s).
Short Communications
Research notes/short communications are short papers that present original and significant material for rapid dissemination. A research note/short communication may focus on a particular aspect of a problem or a new finding that is expected to have a significant contribution to science. Research notes/short communications should be a concise but complete description of a limited investigation that will not be included in a later paper. These should be as completely documented, both by reference to the literature and by description of the experimental procedures employed, as a regular paper. Research notes/short communications should be no longer than 15 pages, should have an abstract of 300 words at most, and are limited to 30 references and to 5 figures and tables combined. Research notes/short communications should include all relevant study background and contain all of the sections described below, but without section titles or numbers.
Letters to the Editor
Letters to the editor reflect the opinions of other researchers on articles in previously published issues of the same journal. Typically, letters address the contents of an original journal article for one or more of the following reasons: to identify errors and make a correction, provide an alternate theory, provide additional information, offer additional evidence, or provide a counterpoint. The letter should be brief and concise. Letters to the editor should not exceed 800 words and 10 references. Letters are always written to the editor; they are never addressed to the authors of the article in question. While writing a letter, one should avoid assuming a personal and biased attitude or the use of aggressive language. All suggestions should be supported by scientific data. General comments not reinforced by logical arguments are not acceptable (e.g., “I think that this is a very important article” or “I think that this article is worthless”). Reference formatting should be used in letters; however, all of the references used should be published works. Materials that were not published or reported elsewhere should not be used. Otherwise, the letter will not be accepted. The writer should not repeat the original article at length in his/her letter.

A copyright form must also be submitted in order for the letter to be published.

Only letters submitted within 4 months of the original publication date will be considered. The reason for this is that corrections to the record should be done in a timely manner. If there will be a reply to the letter, the next step is to designate which issue of the journal it will be published in. Thus, letters are not necessarily published in the very next issue since it may take some time for the original author to reply. The letter authors’ names and affiliations should be written clearly at the top of the letter, and the title of the article about which the letter is written should be clearly stated in the introduction of the letter.

Manuscript Content

This template contains the manuscript preparation guideline of Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research. In this section a short abstract indicating the novelty and main findings of the work should be written. The text of abstract should be written fully justified, in italics and 8 pt. The abstract should include approximately 100-250 words and should not contain any non-common abbreviations and citations. The number of keywords should be between 3 and 6.

AAIR, in which both theoretical and experimental engineering studies take place, encourages the publication of the articles from challenging areas of engineering and concentrates on the publication of the interdisciplinary AI studies.

This template, which is prepared to help the authors, can be downloaded from the web site of the journal. The papers must be prepared in MS-Word® 2007 or its further releases.

Page Format
The preparation rules given below should be followed. It is recommended that you use this document as template in order to meet the specifications for the format of AAIR.

Page Layout
The size of the papers must be in A4 (210 x 297 mm). Margins must be 30 mm from top, 25 mm from bottom, 15 mm from left and 15 mm from right. Except for the title section of the paper, the page-width figures and tables, the main text must be in double columns 85 mm each. There must be a 10 mm space between the columns.

The main title of the paper should be written in both English and Turkish. The size of the title should be 14 pt and centered.

Only initial letters of the first names and whole of the surnames of the authors must be capital letters. There must be a 10 pt space after the full name of each author. Affiliations of the authors must be given in order of appearance and each individual affiliation must be given in a separate row together with the e-mails of the authors. If there are more than one author who have the same affiliation, their e-mail addresses should be given in order of their names. There must be an 8 pt space between the last e-mail address and the reception/acceptance date information of the paper.

Abbreviations should be spelled out in full at their first occurrence in the text.

All headings should be written in Cambria font. Level-1 headings must be bold, centered and 11 pt, and should begin with capital letters. Level-2, Level-3 and Level-4 headings must be in the same format as Level-1 headings but they should be 9 pt and justified to the left. No headings should be used further than level-4.

Main text should be written in Cambria font and 9 pt, justified. In special cases, e.g. making an emphasis, italic or bold characters can also be used.

Each equation should be written in a separate row and be enumerated. Equations must be given in the 1x2 tables with hidden borders, where the width of the first cell is 90% and the width of the second cell is 10%. The equation in the first cell should be centered and the equation number in the second cell should be justified to the right. Left and right margins of the cells must be zero. All equations should be written in MS-Word® 2007 and further releases equation editor. Equations which cannot be fitted into a single row can be expressed in more than one row. When necessary, an equation can be given within the main text as long as it is shorter than a single row. Equation editor should be used also in the writing of the equations within the main text or the variables used in the equations. Numbers and their related units used in the text should be in the same line.

All figures should be centered in the column, but if a figure is large to the extent that it covers double column, then it should be centered according to the page. Figure captions must be below the figures as illustrated in Fig. 1.

Figure 1. An example figure.

If a figure is wider than a single column, it may be given as to cover two columns and it should be placed at the top or bottom of the page. All original or modified figures taken from other sources must be cited.

Depending on the purpose of use, other types of tables can also be used in the text. Caption of the table should be given above the table.

If a table is wider than a single column it should be placed at the top or bottom of the page. All citations to the tables, figures and equations in the text must be expressed as in the template. If more than one tables, figures or equations are cited, punctuations of “,” and “-” can be used.

Hyperlinks can be used in the paper. Hyperlinks can be utilized as the links (documents, audio, multi-media etc.) that provide more information about the related topic. Font type of a hyperlink must be same as that of the main text but it should be underlined.

Page Numbers
Page numbers should not be inserted into the paper. Headers and footers should not be used in the paper. Such arrangements are to made by AAIR staff.

Citations in the text should be given by numbers in square brackets. The list of references should be given at the end of the paper in order of their first appearance in the text. Use individual sets of square brackets for citation numbers that appear together. For instance, the expression [1],[2],[5] cites the references 1, 2 and 5; similarly, the expression [3]-[9] cites all the references from 3 to 9. In this context, the section of references should be arranged as given in Section 5. In Section 5, [1],[2] correspond to peer reviewed journal papers, [3],[4] books, [5] section in book, [6],[7] conference proceedings, [8],[9] theses/dissertations, [10],[11] reports, and [12] internet hyperlinks.

Appendix A
Appendices should be given by classifying them. If necessary, they may begin on a separate page.

Journal of Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research aim at publishing original research material, which has neither been submitted elsewhere for publication, nor has been published anywhere. If the proper ethics are not followed by the authors, sanctions will be imposed on them. Following are the cases, which if true, will incur sanctions
Plagiarism: If the manuscripts are found to have been plagiarized from other articles, whether published or unpublished.
Duplicate/Multiple Submission(s): Manuscripts that are either found to have been submitted elsewhere or published elsewhere. If authors have used their own work, either previously submitted or published, as the basis for a submitted manuscript, they are required to cite the previous work. They also need to indicate how novel contributions are offered in their submitted manuscript, over and above those of the previous work.
Citation Manipulation: Manuscripts that are found to include citations, whose only purpose is to increase the number of citations to a certain author’s work, or to articles published in some particular journal. If the manuscript is a continuation of author’s earlier published or unpublished work, then relevant references should certainly be cited.
Data Fabrication and Falsification: Fabrication and/or falsified experimental results, including the manipulation of images.
Improper Author Contribution or Attribution:

  • Noteworthy scientific contribution must have been made, by all listed authors, to the research in the manuscript.
  • Anyone, who made a noteworthy scientific contribution, including students and laboratory technicians, should be listed.

Redundant Publications: Redundant publications involve the inappropriately dividing the outcomes of a study, into several articles.
Sanctions: If violations are found, of any of the above-mentioned policies, one or more of the following sanctions will be applied.

  • Immediate rejection of the infringing manuscript
  • Immediate rejection of every other manuscript submitted to Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research by any of the authors of the infringing manuscript
  • Prohibition against all of the authors for any new submissions in Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research, either individually or in combination with other authors of the infringing manuscript, as well as in combination with any other authors. This prohibition will be imposed for a minimum of 36 months
  • Prohibition against all of the authors from serving on the Editorial Board of Journal of Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research.

The above sanctions are applicable even if the violations occurred in a journal published by Journal of Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research.
In situations where the infringement of the above policies is observed to be especially severe, the journal reserves the right to impose further penalties, over and above those mentioned above.
Effective studies are studies that embody and support the scientific method. It is important that all stakeholders (writers, readers and researchers, publishers, referees and editors) in this point must comply with the standards for ethical principles. Within the framework of the Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research publication, all stakeholders are expected to carry out the following ethical responsibilities.
