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.

In this paper, we present a processor that detects security-attacks at the instruction level by checking the integrity of instructions in real time. To confirm the integrity of the instructions, we generate a parity chain of instructions and check them at run time. The parity chain is generated using an error correction code used in a digital communication system, and the integrity checker has the same function as the error-detector module of the error correction code. This architecture can readily be applied to a general processor, because the checker is located between the processor core and the instruction memory. Compared with other cipher modules with the same key space, our instruction integrity checker achieves a faster check speed and occupies a smaller area.
