Aims and scope
Nordic Journal of Computing (NJC) provides an international
forum for high-quality original research within the core areas of
computing (computer science, informatics).
Editing NJC is a joint effort of computer scientists from the Nordic
countries Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
Therefore a large fraction of the board of editors comes from the
Nordic countries, and the focus of the journal will to some extent
reflect the emphasis of the field in these countries.
However, the journal itself wants to be a truly
international medium, open for all authors throughout the world.
The central topics covered by the NJC include
This is not meant as an exhaustive list. The focus of the journal is
expected to evolve as new technologies, methodologies and applications
of computing develop. Neural computing, computational learning, and
data compression are examples of novel areas of interest to NJC.
- algorithms and data structures
- computational complexity
- distributed, concurrent and parallel computation
- foundations, semantics, and implementation of programming languages
- programming methodology, specification, verification, and
The very special relation between the science (theory) and engineering
(application) aspects is a characteristic feature of the
computing field. Therefore NJC encourages theoretical papers with sound
motivation in applications and application oriented papers
with a solid theoretical basis.
Articles in which theory development is supported by empirical
evaluation, typically based on a prototype implementation or on
case-studies, are also welcomed.
NJC will publish articles in three categories:
Special issues will occasionally be dedicated to a particular topic.
Rapid publication is also one of our goals, perhaps including network
publication in the future.
- full papers presenting original contributions,
- short scientific notes, and
- survey and tutorial articles.
NJC continues the Computer Science section of BIT,
the Nordic journal founded in 1961 by Carl-Erik Fröberg.
The journal is published by Publishing Association
