|Before You Begin: Ethics
All authors are supposed to submit the manuscript
containing original contents. The manuscript which
has not been simultaneously submitted to, nor published
in any other publication channels, solely can be
accepted. If the same paper is found appearing or
published in any other publication, the paper will
be automatically rejected. The paper previously
published in other minor publications such as conference,
workshop, seminar, or proceedings can be eligible
for being reviewed and published in JIIS. However,
we require that the paper be substantially revised
with at least 30% new contents which have never
been published in the previous publications. Even
though the new results from the conference paper
are not required, the revised manuscript version
should include expansion of key ideas, examples,
explanations, figures, tables, and so on. In this
case, the manuscript should indicate its previously
published conference name and date as a footnote
in the left bottom of the first page. We strictly
prohibit plagiarism and self-plagiarism. If plagiarism
is found in a paper in review or in the publication,
the Research Ethics Committee of KIISS (Korea Intelligent
Information Systems Society) will immediately investigate
the case. The severe penalty will be imposed on
the author(s) related to the plagiarism case based
on the investigation.
The ethical code of conduct of KIISS can be found
at the Web site of KIISS (Link#1)
or downloaded (Link#2).
Also, the author(s) should comply with International
Standard Publication Ethics.
1. Content and Publication Type
The Editorial Board accepts original papers of research
articles, case studies, and other invited papers
on the intelligent information systems in the field
|JIIS offers two manuscript
types as follows :
- Regular paper
A regular paper usually reports the results
of original research. Rigorous research model,
and empirical evidence that support the model
are generally required for a regular paper.
The page limit of a regular paper is 30 A4
- Concise paper
A concise paper presents results that are
important and original in a concise manner.
In a concise paper, the empirical validation
of the proposed research model can be skipped.
And, 10 to 15 A4 pages are recommended as
the length of a concise paper. In order to
submit a concise paper to JIIS, the paper
must be written in English.
|2. Submission and Correspondence

7. Review Results and Procedures
· A manuscript is accepted for publication once all reviewers have recommended that it be accepted. If some or all of the reviewers believe that it is not suitable, the editor-in-chief of JIIS will use the main editor’s comments to determine the review result and notify the author.
· The four possible review results are the following: “acceptance,” “acceptance after minor revisions,” “acceptance after major revisions,” and “rejection.” The table below lists procedures to be followed after each of the four review results.
||Procedure to be followed
||A decision to accept means that the editorial board of JIIS accepts the manuscript in its present form with no further modifications. In this case, the manuscript will not be reviewed further by editors or reviewers.
|Acceptance after minor revisions
||A manuscript requiring minor revisions is accepted conditionally; the author(s) should revise the manuscript in accordance with the recommendations of editors and reviewers. When the revised manuscript is ready, only the main editor will review it again to decide whether it is suitable for publication.
|Acceptance after major revisions
||A manuscript requiring major revisions is accepted conditionally; the author(s) should revise the manuscript in accordance with the recommendations of editors and reviewers. The revised manuscript will be sent back to the original reviewers for a second round of reviews. After considering their comments and recommendations, the main editor will decide whether the revised manuscript is ready to be published, or needs to be revised further.
||A rejected manuscript is not suitable for publication in the JIIS.
8. Revision Period
A paper requiring revisions should be resubmitted within two months of the request for revisions. A paper whose author fails to meet the deadline for revision will be automatically rejected without further process.
9. Revision Request
Even in the case of an article accepted for publication, the editor-in-chief may stop the publication process and request revisions if further improvement and correction are needed or if (part of) the submission infringes Editorial Policy.
