Informatics (ISSN 2227-9709) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal, which publishes original theoretical and empirical work on the science of informatics and its application in multiple fields. Our concept of Informatics includes technologies of information and communication as well as the biological, social, linguistic and cultural changes that initiate, accompany and complicate their development.
Informatics publishes regular research articles, reviews and short notes. There is no restriction on the length of papers, and we encourage researchers to publish their theoretical and empirical results in as much detail as possible. For theoretical papers, full details of proofs must be provided so that the results can be checked; for experimental papers, full experimental details must be given so that the results can be reproduced. Additionally, electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculations, experimental procedure, etc., can be deposited along with the publication as “Supplementary Material”.
