Where to publish papers?

The area of computer science understands as journals the dissemination vehicles with a recognized editorial body, with peer evaluation (reviewers Ad hoc), with ISSN and appearing in internationally recognized databases. The most relevant data sources for the area are ISI, Scopus, ACM, IEEE, SpringerLink, InterScience, ScienceDirect, and Scielo.

The area also considers the publication of complete articles in the proceedings of traditional conferences in the same importance as the publication of journals. These conferences include program committees and perform a rigorous peer review process. It is worth noting that, according to the document policy of the Scopus, the definition of the article encompasses both publications in journals and in conference proceedings.

Most of these conferences are from the same sources cited above and, as indicated in a study done by the Computer Science area, can be evaluated according to the same indexes and parameters of the journals. The Computer Science area also has saturation (lats) relative to conference publications. The total number of articles in conferences that are accounted for a program is limited to three times the number of articles in journals for the evaluation period. This limitation is consistent with the standard of publications of Centers of Excellence abroad in the area of computer science, which publish on average 2.5 articles in conferences for each article in a periodical.

According to the area document of Capes in computing, the evaluation of intellectual production is done by means of two indexes Ir And Ii. The índiWhat Ir Takes into account only the highest rated vehicles in the Qualis (A1 to B1). This index is equivalent to saturation for strata B2 to B5. The following table shows the weight score per Qualis.

Weight Chart for Qualis:

A1 A2 B1 B2 B3 B4 B5 C
1.00 0.85 0.70 0.50 0.20 0.10 0.05 0.00

In light of this context, we present some spreadsheets to help you choose períodicos and conferences:

  1. The complete list of journals indexed in JCR can be seen by the tool JCR Incites. JCR journals classified as the computer area can be downloaded from the following link: JCR-Computation.
  2. The full list of journals indexed in the Qualis Of CAPES can be seen by the tool Sucupira. The journals and conferences currently indexed with Qualis in the Computer Science area can be downloaded from the following link: Qualis-Computer Science.
  3. If the desired Journal is from Elsevier, it is possible to know the review deadline, acceptance rate and adherence of the journal using the Elsevier Journal Finder.
  4. If the desired Journal is from Springer, it is possible to know the review deadline and acceptance rate of the journal using the Springer Journal Finder.
  5. If the desired Journal is from IEEE, it is possible to know the review deadline and impact factor using IEEE Publication Recommender.
  6. Search for journals indexed by Qualis using keywords: https://sites.google.com/view/ondepublicar/classificados-no-qualis
  7. At the time of choosing conferences, you can consult the potential forums by area, deadlines, and locations using the Conference Search.
