Computer Software, and Secure Methods (CSSyM)  

Call for Journal Special Issue Indexed in Scopus




Respected Colleagues/Fellow Researchers,

You are cordially invited to submit your paper for possible inclusion in the special issue titled as "Computer Software and Secure Methods (CSSyM)". The special issue welcomes articles related to the general area of computer Software, software engineering for secure methods.


Behind the success of computer science and software tools, mostly complex algorithms and software models are involved. Methods used in Computer Science and Software Engineering are counted as the back-bone in the process of software development strategies specially where critical systems are implemented. Furthermore, the design of models or methodologies are being selected on the basis of project's aims and goals. This special issue will collect quality of papers related to computer science and secure methods. The researchers and practitioners can benefit themselves by reading and implementing several high quality papers in their creative work. 

With their role of modelling being increasingly dominant in other fields such as computer science, software design and development, there is a growing need for an integrated set of systems, algorithms, approaches and tools that are useful for verifying and validating the systems.


Areas of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
