This is a summary of and
addtional information on the submission
process described on the Wiley-Blackwell web site.
Length. Submissions must be between
5,000 and 15,000 words long, not including title,
figures, tables, and references. Authors of longer
submissions may be asked to shorten them before
they can be considered for review.
Focal topics. Submissions must
be on one (or more) of the
focal topics of the journal. Authors should
indicate which focal topics their submission addresses
in their cover letter. Prospective authors are
welcome to send by email to the contact address
of the journal an abstract or full manuscript
(in confidence) to the editors in chief to inquire
about the suitability of their manuscript for
Papers published in CI must contain a substantial
validation of their claims, either as a
theoretical development (proofs), or as a
thorough experimental evaluation and
detailed comparison with existing methods, demonstrating
the significance of the proposed methods. Conceptual
frameworks that lack such validation are not acceptable.
For papers published elsewhere, it is required
that the special issue versions be substantially
different from their already published forms.
New proofs, theories or experimental results would
qualify, while extending referenced literature,
or slightly changing the writing would not. As
a guideline, there should be at least 30% new
research results in the journal version compared
to a prior conference or workshop version.

OF AN ACCEPTED MANUSCRIPT
A manuscript will not be unconditionally
accepted unless the source files
(MSWord or LaTeX) have been submitted with the
final version. The pdf version of the final accepted
manuscript is not sufficient.
If the source files of a manuscript are missing,
it will be accepted subject to minor revisions,
to allow the authors to upload the source files
to Manuscript Central as a new revision. In such
a case, authors should submit the following:
1. The paper in pdf format,
with file designation "main document"
2. The source files (MSWord or
LaTeX). In the case of LaTeX,
put all the .tex files, the figures, the .bib
files and any style files used, into a Dropbox
or Google Drive folder, and include the URL of
the folder in the cover letter in plain text.
Please note that the publisher
will send you an online copyright transfer agreement
form to fill.
