Publication Criteria

HJWYDK publishes original work in the areas of interest to the Hackaday community. The criteria of acceptance are the quality of work in the following aspects: (1) Novelty and practical impact (2) Technical soundness (3) Quality of presentation (4) Relevance.

Manuscript Preparation

This journal doesn't require a fixed format, in order to be accomodating to a broad range of presentation styles / topics, but you should be aware that for the final version it will be re-set in LaTeX. So the use of LaTeX in the source document is heavily encouraged. Manuscripts should be written in English. There is no restriction on the length of manuscripts.

After submission of manuscripts, authors will receive an email to confirm receipt of manuscripts. Subsequent enquiries concerning paper progress should be sent to the email address of the journal.
