About Polibits

Polibits is a half-yearly peer reviewed open access research journal published since 1989 by the Center for Technological Design and Development in Computer Science (CIDETEC) of the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), the largest governmentally-owned university of the country, in Mexico City, Mexico. The journal is both governmentally owned and governmentally funded through the academic excellence journals program of the Ministry of Science (CONACYT) of Mexico. The journal is supported by the international scientific electronic library SciELO.

The journal solicits original research papers in all areas of computer science and computer engineering, with emphasis on applied research.

Editorial board of the journal consists of 31 prominent scientists from 14 countries: Colombia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Spain, USA, Ukraine, United Kingdom. Since 2008, we have published papers by authors from countries including Belgium, Brazil, China, Colombia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Norway, Romania, Russia, Serbia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, UK, USA, United Kingdom, Vietnam. Here is the geographical distribution of our authors (since 2008) and our Editorial Board members.

The journal has double-blind review procedure. It publishes papers in English and Spanish. Publication has no cost for the authors. Polibtis is an open access journal: all papers are freely available from its web site.

Since June 2014, we implement a new policy of giving an acceptance decision within 4 month from submission.

Indexing: DBLP, LatIndex, Periódica, e-revist@s, SciELO, Cabell's Directories. In various countries Polibits is considered at a top or at a high level, for example:
