Author Guidelines

Journal of Science and Technology on Information and Communications (JSTIC) is a scientific journal periodically published by Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology (PTIT). The goal of the JSTIC is to publish peer reviewed practical and theoretical research papers in the various fields of Information and Communications. We welcome diverse innovative participation of local and international researchers to build a sustainable and high quality scientific journal. Only papers that have not been published or submitted elsewhere can be accepted. Manuscripts should be written in Vietnamese or English using the journal template available in MS Word or Latex. The number of pages should be greater than 5 pages and less than 15 pages.

Revised and Final Version Submission

Submissions of revised manuscripts should follow the same guidelines as for manuscript submissions, plus that revised manuscript submissions must include a short summary about the modifications the authors have made and their response to reviewers' comments. 

Upon formal acceptance of a manuscript for publication, instructions for providing the final materials required for publication will be sent to the Corresponding Author. Final version of a paper accepted for publication should be prepared in LaTeX, and is required to use the IEEE Transactions style files, which are available at

Plagiarism Guidelines for Authors

As an author submitting your work to a scientific journal, it is crucial to uphold the highest standards of academic integrity and avoid any form of plagiarism. Plagiarism undermines the credibility of research and is considered a serious ethical violation. The following guidelines will help you understand and adhere to the principles of originality and proper attribution:

  1. Understand what constitutes plagiarism: Familiarize yourself with the definition of plagiarism within the context of academic publishing. Plagiarism includes the unauthorized use of someone else's ideas, words, or data without proper citation or acknowledgment. It encompasses direct copying, paraphrasing without appropriate attribution, and self-plagiarism (reusing your own previously published work without proper disclosure).

  2. Cite and reference sources appropriately: Whenever you use ideas, concepts, or findings from other works, ensure that you provide accurate citations and references. Properly acknowledge the original source and use quotation marks for verbatim text. Follow the citation style specified by the journal to maintain consistency.

  3. Avoid excessive reliance on others' work: While it is acceptable to build upon existing research, make sure to contribute your own original insights and analysis. Simply summarizing or rephrasing existing literature without adding substantial value is insufficient. Strive to provide novel perspectives, experimental data, or theoretical advancements.

  4. Be cautious with paraphrasing: Paraphrasing is the rewording of someone else's work in your own words. However, paraphrasing alone is not sufficient to avoid plagiarism. Even when you rephrase the content, you must still attribute the original source. It is best to consult multiple sources and synthesize the information into your own unique interpretation.

  5. Avoid self-plagiarism: While it is acceptable to refer to your own previously published work, it must be done transparently. Clearly indicate when and where the content has been published before and provide appropriate references to the original work. Republishing substantial portions of your own work without proper acknowledgment is considered self-plagiarism.

  6. Use plagiarism detection tools: Before submitting your manuscript, utilize plagiarism detection software to ensure the originality of your work. These tools can help identify any instances of unintentional plagiarism or inadequate citation. Review the generated reports carefully and make necessary revisions before submission.

  7. Seek permission for copyrighted material: If you wish to include copyrighted material (e.g., figures, tables, or substantial excerpts) from other publications, obtain permission from the copyright holder and provide proper attribution. Failure to do so may constitute copyright infringement and plagiarism.

  8. Maintain meticulous records: Keep thorough records of all your sources, including articles, books, websites, and personal communications. This will help you accurately cite and reference your work and demonstrate your commitment to academic integrity.

  9. Seek guidance and feedback: If you are uncertain about proper citation practices or any aspect related to plagiarism, consult the journal's guidelines or seek guidance from mentors, supervisors, or colleagues. Their expertise and feedback can help you avoid potential pitfalls and strengthen the quality and originality of your work.

  10. Be aware of the consequences: Plagiarism can have severe consequences, including rejection of your manuscript, retraction of published papers, damage to your reputation, and potential disciplinary actions by your institution or professional associations. Adhering to ethical research practices and maintaining academic integrity is essential for the progress of science.
