The journal also encourages the submission of critical review articles covering advances in recent research of such fields as well as technical notes.

INTRODUCTION

The Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board are very committed to build the Journal as one of the leading international journals in Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks in the next few years. With the support of the International Association for Sharing Knowledge and Sustainability (IASKS), it is expected that a heavy resource to be channeled into the Journal to establish its international reputation. The Journal’s reputation will be enhanced from arrangements with several organizers of international conferences in publishing selected best papers of the conference proceedings. The journal is planning to publish 4 issues per year.
