About STCC

The Services Transactions on Cloud Computing (STCC), formerly the International Journal of Cloud Computing (IJCC), is a refereed, international publication featuring the latest research findings and industry innovations involving all aspects of cloud computing services. STCC is an open publication journal, and is free for publication and download. We particularly encourage contributions containing highly original ideas, new approaches, and/or groundbreaking experimental research results. The major topics of this journal include but not limited to architecture, modeling, development, deployment, analytics, optimization, outsourcing, delivery model, consulting, application, and solutions of cloud computing services.

STCC aims at becoming a prestigious international journal in the field of cloud computing services. STCC only considers extended versions of papers published in reputable conferences, particularly those with open data and/or benchmark based credible experimental evaluations and those advancing the design, implementation, and operations management of industrial cloud services. STCC also welcomes survey and experience-sharing papers on state-of-the-art cloud computing technologies and tools.

Sponsored by Services Society (S2), all published STCC papers are available for free download to facilitate ease of citation and knowledge sharing, in addition to paper copies. Moreover, the published papers are recommended to the communities of related reputable conferences such as CLOUD, ICWS, SCC, BigData, AIMS, ICIOT, Edge, ICCC and SERVICES.

Review Policy

STCC aims to become a prestigious international journal in the field. STCC only considers extended versions of papers published from reputable related conferences. The published STCC papers will be recommended to the potential authors of the future versions of related reputable conferences such as CLOUD, ICWS, BigData, SERVICES, MS, and SCC. In addition to their original conference reviewers, STCC will assign extra reviewers. At least 30% of new substantial content must be added from the published conference versions. A cover letter must be submitted together with the journal version and conference version, explaining in detail the extension and difference between the journal version and the conference version.

STCC is sponsored by Services Society, to support professional reviewers and volunteers to conduct peer-review process for all paper submissions. STCC's policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others until the date of publication. Therefore it is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will divulge or make any use of its contents unless and until the paper is approved and published. Contents of abstracts submitted to reviewers will also be regarded as privileged information, and handled in this manner. Editors-in-Chief of STCC shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice.
