Aims and scope
Journal of Computer Programming Language and Technology is an international refereed journal publishes quarterly online open access by KMF. The journal is aimed to publish research articles on theoretical foundations of information and computation, and of practical techniques for their implementation and application in computer systems. It is dedicated to the distribution of research results in the areas of software systems development, use and maintenance, including the software aspects of hardware design. The journal has a wide scope ranging from the many facets of methodological foundations to the details of technical issues and the aspects of industrial practice. The subjects of interest to Journal of Computer Programming Language and Technology cover the entire spectrum of methods for the entire life cycle of software systems, including
Requirements, specification, design, validation, verification, coding, testing, maintenance, metrics and renovation of software;
Design, implementation and evaluation of programming languages;
Programming environments, development tools, visualisation and animation;
Management of the development process;
Human factors in software, software for social interaction, software for social computing;
Cyber physical systems, and software for the interaction between the physical and the machine;
Software aspects of infrastructure services, system administration, and network management.
Special emphasis is given to recent trends in software development, such as software architecture, component-based software development and web-based software engineering. Journal of Computer Programming Language and Technology is divided into following four tracks:
The conceptual track is open for methodological, philosophical and sociological studies on all aspects of computer software production and usage, including ethics. Also short papers are allowed here, called viewpoints.
The formal track emphasizes the development and the pragmatic application of formal and semiformal techniques.
The experimental track is open for expositions on implementations of and experiments with novel programming languages, systems and methods. It must be emphasized that papers describing new software tools of relevance to Journal of Computer Programming Language and Technology are welcome under the strict condition that the source code of the tools is open. Moreover, the results should be reproducible and show general applicability. By means of the article type of original Software Publications also versioned software product, corpora and datasets can enter the review process and get published.
The descriptive track deals with observational studies of current software development practices, reporting on new languages, systems and methods, including survey reports on the various themes.
