About Algorithms


Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893; CODEN: ALGOCH) is an open access journal of computer science, computational mathematics, artificial intelligence, automation and control systems, theory, methods and interdisciplinary applications, data and information systems, and software engineering. Algorithms provides an advanced forum for studies related to algorithms and their applications. It publishes reviews, regular research papers, and short communications as well as Special Issues on particular subjects.

The aim of Algorithms is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results as much in detail as possible. Therefore, the journal has no restriction on the maximum length of the papers. Full experimental details should be provided so that the results can be reproduced. In addition, the journal has the following features:

  • Manuscripts regarding new and innovative research proposals and ideas are particularly welcome;
  • Electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure as well as source codes can be submitted as supplementary material.

MDPI Publication Ethics Statement

MDPI is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). MDPI takes the responsibility to enforce a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies and standards to ensure to add high quality scientific works to the field of scholarly publication. Unfortunately, cases of plagiarism, data falsification, inappropriate authorship credit, and the like, do arise. MDPI takes such publishing ethics issues very seriously and our editors are trained to proceed in such cases with a zero tolerance policy. To verify the originality of content submitted to our journals, we use iThenticate to check submissions against previous publications.
