Peer review

ARIMA Journal is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal, committed to publication of high quality and original scientific content in the broad area of applied mathematics and computer science. Articles accepted for publication must describe novel research results and are strictly selected on the basis of scientific merits as ascertained by an open peer-review process.

ARIMA Journal also publishes special issues dedicated to scientific events (conferences or workshops) taking place in Africa or related to the continent. Such an issue contains, after selection, the extended versions of some of the papers presented at the event. A special issue may also be devoted to some specific topic without being tied to a scientific event. Special issues are edited under the responsability of an ad-hoc editorial team in collaboration with the Editorial board of the journal.
