PEER REVIEW PROCEDURE

If accepted after the reviewing process, they will be published in the conference electronic proceedings book (ISSN: 2067-743X).

The printed version of the proceedings book is available on request basis during registration and an extra fee (15 Eur) has to be paid together with the participation fee.

This journal uses single blind peer review (the author does not know who the reviewers are). During the review process, authors may obtain all necessary information about their manuscripts from the editorial office.

All papers are peer-reviewed.
The reviewers’ recommendation is stated according to one of the three assertions below:
– accept without revision
– accept after (major or minor) revision
– reject


Stages of the review procedure:
– The editorial board evaluates the submitted papers according to the aim and major topics of the conference. Papers that do not meet the aim and the major topics will be rejected. The editorial board act according to relevant international rules of publication and research ethics (COPE guidelines and Elsevier’s Ethics in Research and Publishing –Publishing Ethics Resource Kit) when ethical misconduct is suspected and proved;

– Manuscripts will be sent to one reviewer;
– The editorial board will take into account the reviewer comments when deciding the publication of the manuscripts;
– When a manuscript is rejected by one reviewer, the editors decide whether to contact a second reviewer or return the paper to the author(s);
