About CPPJ

ISSN#: 2832-1006

While the primary path to journal publication is through the (ISCAP) conference, CPPJ encourages direct submissions at https://iscap.us/papers. Direct submissions are subjected to a double-blind peer review process, where reviewers do not know the names and affiliations of paper authors, and paper authors do not know the names and affiliations of reviewers. All submissions (articles, teaching tips, and teaching cases & notes) to the journal will be refereed by a rigorous evaluation process involving at least three blind reviews by qualified academic, industrial, or governmental computing professionals. Submissions will be judged not only on the suitability of the content but also on the readability and clarity of the prose. Currently, the acceptance rate for the journal is under 35%.
