Guidelines for submitting proposals for journal Special Issues and conference proceedings

A series of Elsevier Computer Science journals use an online Special Issue and proceedings proposal submission and review system(opens in new tab/window) to triage proposals. This online proposal submission system keeps a record of all the files, correspondence, and interactions with journals’ editors who need to evaluate any proposal for publication.

For any questions or feedback about the submission system please contact your publisher.

Please note: conference proceedings proposals will be considered for publication in Procedia Computer Science(opens in new tab/window) ONLY.

Open Science

Open access

Access to quality research is vital to the scientific community and beyond. We support sustainable access and work hard to provide a range of open access options alongside our access initiatives to ensure everyone can read, use and trust the latest research.

We are committed to working in partnership with the research community, librarians, funders and other stakeholders. Our Elsevier team is continually on the road meeting the community, participating in discussions and establishing partnerships that will help increase access to research.

Reproducibility Badge Initiative

Reproducibility Badge Initiative (RBI) is a collaboration with the Code Ocean (CO), a cloud based computational reproducibility platform that helps the community by enabling sharing of code and data as a resource for non-commercial use. CO verifies the submitted code (and data) and certifies its reproducibility. Code submission will be verified by the Code Ocean team for computational reproducibility by making sure it runs, delivers results and it is self-contained. For more information please visit this help article(opens in new tab/window).

Certified papers will be given additional exposure by having an attached Reproducibility Badge, and by being listed on CodeOcean website. https://codeocean.com(opens in new tab/window)

 Reproducibility Badge

Sponsorships and Awards

On an annual basis we donate to many initiatives to support the global computer science community through conference sponsorships, prizes and funding. Many of our journals include young researcher awards.
