IJICoT publishes state-of-the-art international research that significantly advances the study of information and coding theory and their applications to cryptography, network security, network coding, computational complexity theory, communication networks, and related scientific fields that make use of information and coding theory methods.
Topics covered include
- Codes and cryptography
- Reed-Muller codes and Boolean functions
- Codes and lattices
- Quantum codes
- Codes and designs
- Algebraic geometric codes (AG), locally recoverable codes (LRC), codes for emerging problems in cryptography, etc
- Source coding, space-time coding
- Detection and estimation theory
- Information and differential entropy
- Private information retrieval (PIR)
- Codes construction/existence/analysis
- Non-existence results for codes, bounds for codes/designs
- Decoding algorithms
- Algebraic and combinatorics methods for codes
The missions of IJICoT are to improve international research on topical areas by publishing high-quality articles, and to expose the readers to the recent advances in these areas.

- Coding theorists, telecommunication researchers, engineers and managers
- General participants in networking and multimedia technologies
Information theory and its important sub-field, coding theory, play central roles in theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics. As coding theory occupies an important position within the field of information theory, the focus of IJICoT is on publishing state-of-the-art research articles relating to it.
However, articles discussing other issues within information theory are also of interest to this journal. Progress in this area is mostly based on algebraic, combinatorial or probabilistic approaches. IJICoT serves as a medium to report, exchange, and discuss work-in-progress, experience, trend-setting ideas on constructions/existence, limitations/non-existence, efficient algorithms for encoding/decoding codes, and scientific knowledge that make use of coding-theory methods.
In addition, practical contributions of the aforementioned theoretical approaches, such as applications to cryptography, network coding, network security, computational complexity theory, communication networks, as well as applications to other areas of mathematics and computer science, are included.
