Once a proposal has been approved in principle by the Editorial Board, it is the responsibility of the Guest Editor(s) to deliver the soft copy of the entire issue to the International Journal of Computer Applications within the agreed time-scale.

The guest editors will be provided with special FTP privileges to upload the papers onto IJCA server system.
