These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJAC, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.


Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Content Extraction from News Web Pages using Tag Tree   Order a copy of this article
    by Chandrakala Arya, Sanjay K. Dwivedi 
    Abstract: As the web endures to develop, there is an enormous amount of information which is typically designed for its users, which makes it difficult to extract relevant data from numerous sources. In this paper, we propose an approach for extracting the main content from news web pages. Our approach is based on the concept of tokenization of HTML page, these tokens construct the tag tree; web pages from different websites are parsed into Tag tree and generated a template from each web pages and discover matching patterns and multiple sequence alignment. It finds and removed shared token sequences from the web pages until the relevant information is extracted from them. We perform experiments on 500 web pages from ten different news websites. Experimental results show that our approach efficiently extracts the relevant information.

  • Internet of Things (IoT) for the Future Modernization of Agriculture   Order a copy of this article
    by Prashanta Das 
    Abstract: According to a report by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the UN the current world population is likely to reach 11200 million in 2100. World Bank data for Agricultural land (% of landarea) for 264 countries shows a meager increase in land use in Agriculture of approximate 2% in 53 years of period (1961 2014). These data shows that, land use in agriculture is fixed, whereas the demand for agriculture produced (food) increase by every passing year. In order to match the Global demand for affordably priced food by 2050 the yearly food production must increase by more than 1% annually. This paper discusses about the prospects of application of IoT in e-Agriculture to meet the growing demand for food for the exponentially growing population. Finally the paper discusses an IoT setup to measure the Atmospheric Sensors having the prospect in e-Agriculture as an use case.
    Keywords: IoT; Precision Agriculture; e-Agriculture.
