Indexing and Ranking

POLIBITS is usually indexed in ISI Thomson / Clarivate Web of Science SciELO collection (currently in process of re-evaluation, so no guarantee of indexing at this moment) and CONACYT (also in process of re-evaluation).

POLIBITS is usually indexed in DBLP, LatIndex, Periódica, e-revist@s, SciELO, Redalyc, and Cabell's Directories.

In various countries POLIBITS is considered at a top or at a high level, for example:


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 35 prominent scientists from 15 countries: Colombia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea (South), Mexico, Singapore, Spain, UK, Ukraine, USA. 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, Korea (South), Malaysia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Norway, Peru, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, UK, USA, Vietnam. Here is the geographical distribution of our authors (since 2008) and our Editorial Board members.

The journal has double-blind review procedure that involves external referees not affiliated with the editorial team or the hosting institution. It publishes papers in English (exceptionally good papers in Spanish can be considered). Publication has no cost for the authors. POLIBITS is an open access journal: all papers are freely available from its web site.

Acceptance decision is made within 4 month from submission.
