Federal Communications Law Journal (FCLJ) [Entry Reviewed: 2016-02-05]
|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |Not on Scopus database |Not on ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
The Federal Communication Law Journal(FCLJ) is one of eight academic journals published by students at the George Washington University Law School. The FCLJ is the official journal for the Federal Communications Bar Association, and in serving this important role, often features articles and essays by commissioners in the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), members of the United States Congress, and prominent professors and practitioners. The FCLJ publishes three issues each year featuring articles, book reviews, student notes, and commentaries focusing on domestic and international communications issues. Select students are invited to join the staff of the FCLJ during the summer following their first year of law school. Invitations are extended based on first-year academic performance and a writing competition held at the end of the first year. Students select articles for publication, edit and proofread these articles, and verify the accuracy and form of cited sources. The FCLJ also publishes several student-written articles and notes.

International Journal of Forecasting (IJF) [Entry Reviewed: 2016-02-19]
|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |On Scopus database |On ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[e-journal] [instructions]
The International Journal of Forecasting is the leading journal in its field. It is the official publication of the International Institute of Forecasters (IIF) and shares its aims and scope. More information about the IIF may be found on the Internet at http://www.forecasters.org/ The International Journal of Forecasting publishes high quality refereed papers covering all aspects of forecasting. Its objective (and that of the IIF) is to unify the field, and to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The intention is to make forecasting useful and relevant for decision and policy makers who need forecasts. The journal places strong emphasis on empirical studies, evaluation activities, implementation research and ways of improving the practice of forecasting. It is open to many points of view and encourages debate to find solutions for problems facing the field.


foresight (foresight) [Entry Reviewed: 2016-02-04]
|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |On Scopus database |Not on ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
foresight is an international bi-monthly journal concerned with the study of the future. Futurists often remind us that the purpose of thinking about the future is not to predict what will happen but rather to consider alternatives. Although we cannot know the future, we can propose a range of alternative futures and make judgements about the assumptions that underpin them. Futures research provides a powerful framework and set of techniques that allow us to test the credibility of possible futures. Through a better understanding of what is likely to happen we should be able to make better decisions in the present. But if the value of foresight, then, is to be judged in terms of its ability to influence decisions - by individuals, and within organizations, businesses and governments - futurists must be prepared to move beyond the research and analysis of alternatives. Businesses, organizations and policy makers face real problems that require real solutions. Futurists should be at the forefront of discovering practical ways to manage 21st century life under growing complexity, providing a long-term perspective and greater clarity for decision-makers. foresight will, therefore, provide a much-needed forum for sound thinking about the future and will focus on themes and issues, which demand a strategic and long-term view. It will draw upon the established tools, techniques and methodologies of futures studies (e.g. scenario planning, Delphi, environmental scanning etc) as well as those of other social science disciplines, and will be informed by systems thinking and theories of post-modernism and complexity.


Formal Methods in System Design (FMSD) [Entry Reviewed: 2016-02-03]
|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |On Scopus database |On ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
Formal Methods in System Design reports on the latest formal methods for designing, implementing, and validating the correctness of hardware (VLSI) and software systems. Readers will find high quality, original papers describing all aspects of research and development. Contributions to the journal serve its goal of developing an important and highly useful collection of commonly applicable formal methods that will strongly influence future design environments and design methods.

Foundations and Trends in Information Systems (FTIS) [Entry Reviewed: 2016-02-22]
|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |Not on Scopus database |Not on ISI database |Not refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
The growth in all aspects of research in the last decade has led to a multitude of new publications and an exponential increase in published research. Finding a way through the excellent existing literature and keeping up to date has become a major time-consuming problem. Electronic publishing has given researchers instant access to more articles than ever before. But which articles are the essential ones that should be read to understand and keep abreast with developments of any topic? To address this problem Foundations and TrendsŪ in Information Systems publishes high-quality survey and tutorial monographs of the field using modern techniques to enable both instant linking to the primary research in its electronic form and affordable paper copies, finally delivering on the promise to authors of multiple channel publishing from a single source. Each issue of Foundations and TrendsŪ in Information Systems comprises a 50-100+ page monograph written by research leaders in the field. Monographs that give tutorial coverage of subjects, research retrospectives as well as survey papers that offer state-of-the-art reviews fall within the scope of the journal.

Future Internet is an open access journal which provides an advanced forum for scientific studies related to Internet technologies and the information society. It publishes regular research papers, reviews and short communications. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers or the use of color figures. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.
