1. Submissions

The Journal of Information Hiding and Multimedia Signal Processing (JIHMSP) is an academic journal publishing theoretical, application-oriented, and review and survey papers on all aspects of information hiding or multimedia signal processing. The submission implies that it has not been published before or it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

Publication of submissions will be decided after peer-reviews, within four months of receipt. Accepted articles will generally be published within one year thereafter.

2. Manuscript Layout

Manuscripts should be typewritten in English. The front page should contain the article title, author's name and affiliation, abstract and keywords. The abstract should not exceed 200 words and should be intelligible to general readers without recourse to the main text. Authors are suggested to use the Latex template ( jihmsp.cls ) to prepare for the manuscript.

Articles should, in general, begin with an introduction which adequately covers the literature and scope of the paper. Each section in the paper should be numbered. Each article should have, in general, a conclusion or discussion section. Any appendices should follow the Reference section.

3. Illustrations

Proper figure preparation, in Encapsulated Postscript format, is essential for optimum reproduction of line drawing and photograph. Figures and Tables should be placed as part of the text and should be numbered.

4. References

References should be listed at the end of the main text. The list of references should be in alphabetical order of first-cited names. The normal form of listed references is author's initials, surname; article title; journal name (abbreviated in accordance with the World List of Scientific Periodicals, 4th ed.); volume number; issue number; page numbers; year.

5. Copyright/Offprints

Authors will be asked to transfer copyright of the article to the Publisher. This will ensure the widest possible protection and dissemination of information under copyright laws.

Accepted manuscripts can be prepared with Latex or Microsoft Word and publication fees will be honored. Further offprints can be ordered at extra cost at the proof stage.

Acceptance of LaTex by the JIHMSP
