PeerJ Computer Science is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, scholarly journal.
It considers articles across the whole of Computer Science.
PeerJ Computer Science considers Research Articles, Literature Review Articles, and Registered Reports. It does not accept Hypothesis Papers, Commentaries, Opinion Pieces, Case Studies, Case Reports, etc.
PeerJ Computer Science evaluates articles
based on an objective determination of scientific and methodological soundness, not on subjective determinations of 'impact' or 'readership' for example.
PeerJ Computer Science
applies the highest standards to everything it does - specifically, the publication places
an emphasis on research integrity; high ethical standards; constructive peer-review; exemplary production quality; and leading-edge online functionality.
Submissions should be directed to an audience of Computer Scientists. Articles that are primarily concerned with biology or medicine and do not have a clearly articulated applicability to the broader field of computer science should be submitted to PeerJ - the journal of Life and Environmental Sciences
. For example, bioinformatics software tools should be submitted to PeerJ
, rather than to PeerJ Computer Science
PeerJ Computer Science does not accept pre-submission inquiries.
PeerJ Computer Science reserves the right to decline to consider, or publish, any submissions for any reason. This can include those studies that do not have a grounding in established scientific knowledge, or that conflict with PeerJ's core values.
