The Computer Science Journal of Moldova (CSJM) is issued three times a year by the Vladimir Andrunakievich Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science of Moldova.

The journal publishes articles and short communications on: Computer System Organization, Software, Theory of Data, Theory of Computing, Computing Methodologies and Applications, Discrete Mathematics in relation to Computer Science, Operations Research and Management Science, Artificial Intelligence, and related topics. Survey papers, reviews of new monographs, abstracts of dissertations, chronicle of scientific events are also published. We welcome appeals from organizations and individuals to advertize software products.

Papers are submitted in English only.

All information contained in the paper (including cited references) should be written in the Roman alphabet.

The journal is computer-typeset. We require texts in the form of electronic manuscripts in LaTeX (.tex file) and the respective variant in .pdf format. If some specific styles are used for your paper layout, please give the respective .sty files together with the main .tex file containing the paper text. Figures should be in .eps format. Dimensions of figures and tables should fit the printable area of CSJM: textheight=182mm, textwidth=118mm. Keep that formulae and equations (algorithms descriptions, program texts, etc.) in the text do not give overfulls: break them in proper places to fit the text width. To keep these conditions, use csjmol.sty and CSJM template (the link for its download is provided at the end of this instruction). Papers presented in other styles and formats are not accepted for consideration by the CSJM Editorial board.

The authors are fully responsible for the content, presentation and global typesetting aspects of the text, figures, tables (and all the attached materials).

The paper should contain the following information: fully descriptive paper title, author’s name/authors’ names, abstract, keywords, MSC (Mathematics Subject Classification, it is advisable to use MSC2020), main body of the paper including tables and figures, appendices, complete English Language bibliographic information for all cited references, full information about affiliation and address (postal and e-mail) for each co-author. It is also recommended to provide the information on the funding source which supports the presented research.

When you prepare references list for your article, please use IEEE style described in IEEE REFERENCE GUIDE.
