About Review and Release Process
• The papers must be prepared in high quality in order to be included in the publication.
• The review process is double-blind, meaning reviewers cannot see article authors.
• All submissions will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.
• In order for a paper to be published as an abstract or recommended to journals, it must be presented at the conference.
• After the reviews are complete, authors can view the peer-review reports. The next step is to check the article for plagiarism. All accepted papers will be included in the conference program and conference abstract book.

There is no guarantee of having your work published in the journals that are indexed in Springer. If these journals give their approval, academics could potentially face an additional fee requested by SCOPUS and Springer.
• Your full-text articles will be sent to the referees for re-evaluation according to the scope and quality requirements of the journals.
• According to the publication conditions of the journals, the rights of acceptance and rejection belong to the editors.

Duties of Author(s)
Authorship of the paper
Authorship should be narrowed to those who have made a vital contribution to the reported study
including conception, execution, design and interpretation. All authors made significant
contributions to the submitted manuscript should be listed as co-authors.

Originality and plagiarism
The authors are responsible for the content, language and originality of the manuscript they
submitted. The authors should assure that they have composed their original works entirely, and if
the authors have used the study and/or words of other authors, that this has been conveniently
cited or quoted. Plagiarism takes many forms varying from “passing off” someone´s paper as the
authors’ own paper to copying or paraphrasing important parts of someone´s paper (without
attribution), to claiming results from research performed by others. Plagiarism in all its forms
comprises unethical publishing behavior and is inadmissible. Before being sent a manuscript to
reviewers, it is checked in terms of similarity by iThenticate to explore the plagiarism.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest
All authors should reveal in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest
which may be construed to affect the findings or interpretation of their manuscript. All financial
support sources for the project should be disclosed as well. Disclosed examples of potential
conflicts of interest include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert
testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding. Potential conflicts of
interest should be declared at the earliest stage possible.

Reporting standards
Authors of manuscript should present an accurate explanation of the study conducted and an
objective discussion of its importance. Underlying data should be accurately given in the
manuscript. A paper should include sufficient detail and references to allow other researchers to
repeat the study. Tricky or knowingly imprecise statements form unethical behaviour and are
unacceptable. Review and professional publication articles should also be precise, original and
objective, and editorial opinion works should be described overtly as such.

• Data access & retention
Authors might be asked to ensure the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review
process, and should in any event be prepared to keep in such data for a moderate time after

Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication
Submitted manuscripts must not be under consideration of any other journal. Submitting the same
manuscript to more than one journal concurrently comprises unethical publishing behaviour. The
authors must also assure that the article has not been published elsewhere before.

Principal errors in published studies

is the author´s obligation to notify swiftly the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the
editor to withdraw or correct the paper.
