As I was going to submit a paper in one of the Elsevier's journal (Web Semantics), it asked me to select the type of paper. The types include "research paper", "system paper!", "ontology paper", "position paper", "survey paper", "briefing paper".
I don't know what are they, and didn't find a document about them except this which doesn't tell much. I doubt if my paper is just a regular or research paper or a system paper.
In my paper I proposed a computer application which is a software system. however, it provides a solution for a problem. Does this make it a system paper!!!
