ICT focus is an international, peer-reviewed, and multidisciplinary journal published by the School of Information and Communication Technology, Mongolian University of Science and Technology. The journal covers the publication of all aspects of research on information and communication technology (ICT) for science, education, and society. ​

The journal invites submissions from across the world. The manuscripts should be high-quality, previously unpublished research articles and reviews that explicitly address the certain challenges faced in the ICT field. ​

ICT focus is an open-access journal. The articles on this site are available in full text and free of charge. The articles must be submitted in English. The average duration of manuscript processing from submission to the final decision is 3-8 weeks. All papers are evaluated by at least two international referees who are known scholars in their fields.​

Aim

The aims of this journal are to publish high-quality research and significant contributions in the field of ICT and related areas and promote the exchange of new concepts, techniques, analyses, applications, and experiments in research work. The journal is particularly interested in work at the edges both within ICT subfields and between ICT and other sectors.
