Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • (Novelty) The manuscript has not been published previously, nor is it being under review for another journal.
  • (Proprietary Protection) The manuscript does not include any information or data that are deemed proprietary and confidential by the institutes or companies where the authors are current employees.
  • (Compliance) The authors have obtained clearance/approval from their Compliance Department(s), if such a requirement exists and is applicable to this submission.
  • (Copyrighted Materials) The authors have obtained the approvals from the copyright owners if any copyrighted materials are included in the manuscript (unless under licenses such as CC BY).
  • (Communication) The authors are aware that the Dedicated Editor (DE) may contact the Corresponding Author(s) in real time with regard to the technical contents of the manuscript, in order to achieve the 5D5W objective.
  • (Editorial Review) To improve transparency and integrity under the current publishing model, an independent review article written by the DE, mostly in a single page, will be published along with the final production version of the accepted manuscript. It will highlight the major contributions, reasons for the DE's accceptance decision, or any future directions of improvement or expansion, etc. The authors must feel comfortable with this new style. (For American Mathematical Society for instance, such post-publication reviewing has become a precious tradition since 1940 and led to the celebrated "Mathematical Reviews®" in the MathSciNet®.)
  • (Comfort & APC) The authors have all read the "MustRead - Journal Model" and "MustRead - Fee Statement" of the journal, and feel comfortable with this experimental publishing model and its workflows. In particular, the authors all agree to pay the Article Processing Charge (APC) before the accepted manuscript is fully ready for production.
  • (Future Obligations) For any of these probable but rare changes ("The Change") in the future: (C.1) Journal's name change, (C.2) Journal is acquired by a different publishing house, (C.3) Journal's publishing model change - from the "Dedicated Editor" model to the regular Editors-Reviewers model, or (C.4) Journal is terminated and no longer accepts new submissions, etc, the authors all agree that the obligations of Deep QuanTech, LLC ("DQT") are only restricted to:
    (O.1) preserving the accuracy of a published paper's original reference information, including the original name of the journal (in the case of a name change), volume, issue, page numbers, and publishing year, and (O.2) maintaining a website, with dedicated hosting (e.g., within DQT as in the present form or within the new publishing house (in the case of acquisition)) or being hosted in a 3rd-party platform, where the original journal name, its volumes and issues before The Change are enlisted, and the PDFs of the published papers are fully accessible in their original forms.

Author Guidelines

Authors need to register with the journal for a first-time submission.

Once registered, please simply log in and follow the simple submission process as guided.

Most journals stipulate several pages of fine details on the layout and styles. ATC only requires the following:

  1. (Tex Processor) The manuscript has been processed either by Latex or Microsoft Word. The initial submission should be only the PDF file generated, with all figures and tables embedded. Once finally accepted for production, the entire package of source files should then be uploaded.

    Latex is preferred if the manuscript involves mathematical/statistical formulae or equations extensively.

  2. (Tex Formatting) The initial Latex or Word manuscript can be formatted in any professional style, with a font size at 11pt or 12pt and via either single or double columns. Once finally accepted for production, the DE will be responsible to convert it to ATC’s proprietary style.

    We believe in that authors should NOT be burdened by all the fine details of journal formatting! DE does it for you.

  3. (Corresponding Author) The title page must include the information of Corresponding Author(s). Please expect real-time communications from the DE once the manuscript is Accepted for Review.

    KYA (Know Your Authors) – The Corresponding Author(s) must be digitally identifiable, either via personal homepages hosted in research institutes or publicly accepted profiles such as LinkedIn or Google Scholars, etc.

    At the present time, we do not publish creative works produced purely by robots or A.I. creatures.

  4. (Minimum Contents) The manuscript must include the following 7 components: Authors with the affiliation information, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction Section, Conclusion Section, Acknowledgment Section, and Reference Section. Each bibliography item should be professionally listed, i.e., to at least include author(s), title, volume and page numbers, journal name, and year, or the publisher and its city in the case of a book, etc. Adding URL links is also a new trend.

    Any listed figure, table, or bib item must be explicitly referenced in the main tex. Otherwise it should be removed.

  5. (Substantial Novelty) The manuscript should not be merely a minor extension or insignificant modification of a work already published, by the authors or others. The call will inevitably involve some degree of subjectivity, and the DE has the discretionary power.
  6. (Professional Integrity) The journal has zero tolerance on any form of violation of professional integrity, including though not limited to:
    • Plagiarism
    • Any discriminatory languages against race, gender, age, etc. 
    • Publishing without being cleared by the author’s Compliance Department, when such a requirement exits
    • Publishing any confidential or proprietary information of the author’s company or institute
    • Any form of copyright infringement
    • Unprofessional and vicious attack on competitors or competing methodologies or frameworks

    Once detected and confirmed (by any honest parties), the manuscript will be automatically returned, or in the case of already being published, be removed from the journal permanently (and APC fee will be returned).
