Special Issues are an important component of International Journal of Computer Sciences and Engineering (IJCSE). They deal with more focused topics with high current interest falling within the scope of the journal in which they are published. They should be organized by recognized experts in the area and attract articles of the highest quality.
Special Issue proposals are welcome at any time during the year, and Proposals should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, and they are subject to approval by the journal's Editorial Board. A proposal should not exceed 1-2 pages.

Special Issues are made freely available online to all interested readers leading to the maximum possible dissemination and recognition within the scientific community. Special Issues can be viewed and downloaded on the individual article level, but are also available in an edited volume format as a single PDF published with a custom cover. They are also made available in print for all readers interested in a print edition.

Editing a “Successful” Special Issue
Once a proposal has been approved in principle by the Editorial Board, it is the responsibility of the Guest Editor(s) to deliver the soft copy of the entire issue to the IJCSE within the agreed time-scale. Guest Editors must organize a double-blind reviewing process for all papers submitted for inclusion in the special issue, so as to:
The editors of International Journal of Computer Sciences and Engineering require seeing copies of all correspondence between reviewers and Guest Editors at the time that the completed draft of the special issue is submitted to International Journal of Computer Sciences and Engineering .
Guest Editors should keep the editor of IJCSE informed by e-mail of the progress in preparing the special issue and in particular alert the IJCSE authorities in advance if agreed deadlines are likely to slip.
Once the final selection of papers has been made and final versions (as per IJCSE format and author guidelines of all these have been received, the Guest Editors should send electronic copies to the Editor. The guest editors will be provided with special FTP privileges to upload the papers onto IJCSE server system.
The editorial board of International Journal of Computer Sciences and engineering will check the quality (like: originality, novelty, clarity, research contributions, completeness, relevance, significance, methodology, presentation style) of the issue before forwarding it for publication in the Digital Library and print version of the same. The Editorial Board reserves the right to request a third review of papers and, if necessary, to request modifications to an issue before approving it for publication. However, the procedures set out above are designed to minimize the need for such measures.
