The International Journal of Intelligent Unmanned Systems (IJIUS) is dedicated to the advancement of the applied science, technology and understanding of autonomous systems through the dissemination of original research work representing significant advances in the design, development, testing and operation of autonomous vehicles and systems for various applications.

Why Submit to IJIUS

IJIUS is the only major journal that covers fixed and mobile autonomous systems in all four domains: space, aerial, ground, and underwater along with autonomous management systems. The editor is particularly interested in receiving high quality original research relating to any aspect of autonomous or semi-autonomous systems. He is also interested in research relating to the relationships between autonomous systems and humal values.

The journal provides an excellent platform for timely publication of all authors or researchers working in areas relevant to autonomous system technologies and aims to maintain the highest levels of paper quality and integrity.

How to Submit to IJIUS

Submissions to IJIUS are made using ScholarOne Manuscripts, the online submission and peer review system. Registration and access is available at For information and guidance on using ScholarOne Manuscripts, go to the ScholarOne help pages:
