Thomson Reuters published the Journal Citations Report for 2015. The JCR Impact Factor of Advances in Electrical and Computer Engineering is 0.459, and the JCR 5-Year Impact Factor is 0.442.

Starting with Issue 2/2016, the article processing charge is 300 EUR for each article accepted for publication. The charge of 25 EUR per page for papers over 8 pages will not be changed. Details are available in the For authors section.

Thomson Reuters published the Journal Citations Report for 2014. The JCR Impact Factor of Advances in Electrical and Computer Engineering is 0.529, and the JCR 5-Year Impact Factor is 0.476.

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.

This paper presents a method for identifying human stress levels by using a Kohonen neural network. The study focuses on differentiating between a relaxed and a stressed state and it presents a series of parameters (skin conductance response signal power, skin conductance response signal frequency, skin conductance level gradient, response rise time and response amplitude) extracted only from the electrodermal activity signal. A very strict recording protocol was used to minimize the artifacts caused by the bad connection between electrodes and skin. A stress inducing method is presented that can be used to replicate results in laboratory conditions.
