Journal of Computational Intelligence in Materials Science is an Open Access journal and makes its published content directly open access. The journal aims to contribute to the support and development of science with the Open Access policy with the content it publishes. The journal offers all usage rights (linking online, copying, printing, reproducing in any physical medium, distributing, etc.), except for commercial use and content change (unless otherwise stated in the relevant content), through Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International(CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) license,provided that the source is cited in known standards.

Manuscripts must be submitted online via Ansis Manager Submission system at http://ansismanager.com/index.php/jcims/about/submissions.
Manuscripts must be submitted by corresponding author of the manuscript, and should not be submitted by anyone on their behalf. The author(s) will confirm that the manuscript (or any part of it) has not been published previously or is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
Furthermore, any illustration, structure or table that has been published elsewhere must be reported, and copyright permission for reproduction must be obtained.
For all online submissions, please provide soft copies of all the materials (main text in MS Word or Tex/LaTeX), figures / illustrations in TIFF, PDF or JPEG, and chemical structures drawn in ChemDraw (CDX)/ISISDraw (TGF) as separate files, while a PDF version of the entire manuscript must also be included, embedded with all the figures / illustrations / tables / chemical structures etc.
A successful electronic submission of a manuscript will be followed by a system-generated acknowledgement to the principal/corresponding author.
Original Articles: Original Articles must present scientific results that are essentially new and that have not been published or are being considered for publication elsewhere.
Reviews: Reviews are usually commissioned by the Editor or an Editorial Board member, but the submission of proposals for Reviews is very much encouraged.
Short Communications: Short Communications are short papers that present significant new observations.
Case Studies: Case Studies provide relevant material to support both research and education through the transferability of experiences, events and experiments and highlight the essence and core findings of research.
Authors are responsible for managing the inclusion of third-party content as an author/editor of a work. We refer to 'third party content' as any work that authors haven't developed themselves and have copied or adapted from other sources. Text, figures, photographs, tables, screenshots, and other items may be included.
