It is assumed that the ideas presented are important, have been well implemented, analysed or empirically validated, and are of value to Architectural Computing research community.
(2) State-of-the-art reviews
Articles can also be state-of-the-art reviews, which will be either perspective tutorial articles in rapidly evolving fields or comprehensive scholarly reviews of significant topics.
(3) Short papers
A brief paper presents results that are important and original and are presented in concise form.
(4) Letters and book reviews
A letter is used to convey only a few principal ideas or to comment on current issues previously published in the IJAC or other Architectural Computing conferences and journals.
Please send enquiries, or proposed entries for consideration, for the Letters (up to 500 words) and book reviews (around 500 words) sections of the journal to two of the Journal editors.
