Connection Science

An Open Access Journal

Connection Science is converting to Open Access from its 2022 volume. 

Connection Science focuses on aspects of Computer Science which explore the convergence of analytic and synthetic sciences, including artificial intelligence and neuroscience. 

It plans to foster the immediate and widescale dissemination of research results through adoption of an  Open Access (OA) model.  Every  submission will continue to be subject to the usual vigorous reviewing process, and to help with this process, the journal as a strong editorial board of prominent and respected academics from a diverse regional and institutional background.  

As part of this transition, all manuscripts received going forward will proceed through Connection Science’s new Open Access submission portal. Authors who submit after 11th May 2021 will be required to pay an article publishing charge (APC) which can be covered by an author’s funder or institution. The standard article publishing charge will be USD 1235/GBP 950/EUR 1090/AUD 1655 with opportunities for funding support.   

Interested authors should visit the Taylor & Francis Open Access Members and  Open Access Agreements pages in case they are based at an institution that may have funds available to authors wishing to publish in  Connection Science. Interested readers may also want to consider signing up to receive  latest article alerts to keep up-to-date with the latest research published in the Journal. 

We look forward to receiving your submissions and hope you join us to embrace  Connection Science’s Open Access future. 

Connection Science is particularly interested in receiving manuscripts arising from connectionist, probabilistic, dynamical, or evolutionary approaches in aspects of Computer Science, applied applications, and systems-level computational subjects that seek to understand models in science and engineering. 

"The publisher and editors have taken every step to ensure that Author Processing Charges (APCs) associated with Open Access publication do not become a prohibiting factor for publication of high-quality papers through introduction of a very competitive pricing scheme as well as setting up a APC discount or waiver initiative."

Kuan Ching-Li, Editor-in-Chief


Q&A with Professor Kuan Ching-Li
