Starting on the 9th of February 2015, we require all authors to identify themselves, when a submission is made, by entering their SCOPUS Author IDs, instead of the organizations, when available. This information will let us better know the publishing history of the authors and better assign the reviewers on different topics.

We have more than 500 author names on the ban-list for cheating, including plagiarism, false signatures on the copyright form, false E-mail addresses and even tentative to impersonate well-known researchers in order to become a reviewer of our Journal. We maintain a full history of such incidents.

The purpose of this research is to find a set of relevant parameters for the emotion recognition. In this study we used the recordings from the emotion database SROL which is part of the project 'Voiced Sounds of Romanian Language'. The database was validated by human listeners. The recognition accuracy of the correct expressed emotion (neutral tone, joy, fury and sadness) for the entire database was 63.97%. We used for the classification of input data the Recurrent Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) and WKNN algorithms. We compared the cluster position with the statistical parameters extracted from vowels in order to establish the relevance of each parameter in the recognition of the emotions. For the extracted parameters for each vowel (mean, median and standard deviation of fundamental frequency - F0 and F1-F4 formants, jitter, and shimmer) the FCM algorithm gave satisfactory results in the phonemes recognition, but not to the emotions. For this reason we used WKNN algorithm in classification, which provided the errors around 20-30% comparing with FCM algorithm when the classification errors are around 40-50%.
