Aims and scope
Journal of Cloud Computing and Applications Research is an international refereed journal quarterly online open access by KMF that will publish research articles on all aspects of Cloud Computing and Applications. The journal addresses a range of major topics that are of considerable importance to both research and business communities. Cloud computing has benefited from the global growth of the Internet and in the continued exponential expansion of computing and storage capabilities. By allowing end users to run office and programming applications on remote servers without the tedium of local installation and upgrade, end users benefit from a highly efficient computing environment that provides centralised storage, software applications, memory, processing power and speed through bandwidth. Principally, articles will address topics that are core to Cloud Computing, focusing on the Cloud applications, the Cloud systems, and the advances that will lead to the Clouds of the future. Comprehensive review and survey articles that offer up new insights, and lay the foundations for further exploratory and experimental work, are also relevant. Published articles will impart advanced theoretical grounding and practical application of Clouds and related systems as are offered up by the numerous possible combinations of internet-based software, development stacks and database availability, and virtualized hardware for storing, processing, analysing and visualizing data. Where relevant, Clouds should be scrutinized alongside other paradigms such Peer to Peer computing, Cluster computing, Grid computing, and so on. Thorough examination of Clouds with respect to issues of management, governance, trust and privacy, and interoperability, are also in scope. The global, service oriented nature of cloud computing implies particular difficulties in achieving compliance with disparate legal and regulatory frameworks designed to ensure privacy and related safeguards. To that end, the journal publishes high quality, peer-reviewed papers in this area, covering a wide range of balanced research topics discussing this important emerging field including the benefits, concerns, technical, legal, moral and political issues involved.
