The Journal of Information Technology and Applications (JITA) publishes quality, original papers that contribute to the methodology of IT research as well as good examples of practical applications.
Authors are advised that adherence to the Instructions to Authors will help speed up the refereeing and production stages for most papers:
• Language and presentation
• Length of submissions
• Contact details/biographies
• Title of the paper
• Abstract and keywords
• Figures and tables
• Special characters
• PDF offprint
• Copyright and permissions
• Final material
Language and presentation
Manuscripts should be written in English. All authors should obtain assistance in the editing of their papers for correct spelling and use of English grammar. Manuscripts should have double spacing, with ample margins and pages should be numbered consecutively. The Editors reserve the right to make changes that may clarify or condense papers where this is considered desirable.
Length of submissions
Papers should not normally exceed 12 Journal pages (about 8000 words). However, in certain circumstances (e.g., review papers) longer papers will be published.
Manuscripts must be submitted through the JITA online submission system, on doisrpska webiste: https://doisrpska.nub.rs/index.php/jita/login
Please read the instructions carefully before submitting your manuscript and ensure the main article files do not contain any author identifiable information. Although PDF is acceptable for initial submission original source (i.e. MS Word) files will be required for typesetting etc.
A separate file, containing the names and addresses of the authors, and the name and full contact details (full postal address, telephone and email) of the author to whom correspondence is to be directed should be uploaded at the time of submission (you should select Contact details/Biographies as the file type). This file will not be shown to reviewers. This file should also contain short biographies for each author (75 words maximum each) which will appear at the end of their paper, as well as picture for each author. The authors’ names and addresses must not appear in the body of the manuscript, to preserve anonymity. Manuscripts containing author details of any kind will be returned for correction
Title of the paper
The title of the paper should not be longer than 16 words.
Abstract and keywords
The first page of the manuscript should contain a summary of not more than 200 words. This should be self-contained and understandable by the general reader outside the context of the full paper. Please do not include any references in your Abstract. Make sure it serves both as a general introduction to the topic and as a brief, non-technical summary of the main results and their implications. You should also add 3 to 6 keywords. Keywords must be added in alphabetical order.
Figures and tables
Figures which contain only textual rather than diagrammatic information should be designated Tables. Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively as they appear in the text. All figures and tables should have a caption.
Sections and subsections should be clearly differentiated but should not be numbered.
Paper must be written without the use of footnotes.
Mathematical expressions and Greek or other symbols should be written clearly with ample spacing. Any unusual characters should be indicated on a separate sheet.
Spelling must be consistent with the Concise Oxford Dictionary.
As the most common method of citing references in electrical engineering, IEEE referencing system is used in JITA Journal.
Therefore, references in the text must be indicated by the number in square brackets. Also, there have to be a list of references at the end of paper.
If a referenced paper has more then six authors, the reference should always appear as the first author name followed by “et al.”.
References are numered and listed in order as they appear in the text, starting from . All document types, both printed and electronic, are in the same list. If document is accepted, but not published yet, it has to be written “to be published” at the end.
If literature from the Internet is cited, the author or name of the organization has to be cited, and date of publication, title of the work, web address and date of access as well. If the author or date of publication is not known, the reference can be started without them, but other elements of the source are mandatory.

Proofs of papers will be sent to authors for checking. Alterations to diagrams should be avoided where possible. It will not be possible to accept major textual changes at this stage. Proofs must be returned to the publishers within 48 hours of receipt by email, first-class post, airmail or courier. Failure to return the proof will result in the paper being delayed.
Corresponding authors will receive a PDF of their article. This PDF offprint is provided for personal use. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to pass the PDF offprint onto co-authors (if relevant) and ensure that they are aware of the conditions pertaining to its use.
The PDF must not be placed on a publicly-available website for general viewing, or otherwise distributed without seeking our permission, as this would contravene our copyright policy and potentially damage the journal’s circulation.
