Policy & Ethics
Trans Tech Publications Ltd. endorses IEEE global standards of conference ethics and quality control.
- A conference is an event where researchers with similar interest present and discuss their latest findings.
- A conference needs to have a clear "call for papers".
- Conference organizers cannot promise any index services on their website.
- Conference organizers need to obey international spam ethics.
- All papers have to be presented by at least one of the authors at the conference.
- Papers can only be submitted to one conference and must describe current original research of international interest.
- Papers need to be submitted by corresponding authors via TTP's online tool.
- Papers need to pass a proper peer review via TTP's online tool.
- Papers need to be related to the main topic of the conference, i.e. to the specific "call for papers" of the conference.
- Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable (this is strictly enforced by TTP via CrossCheck).
- All papers are subject to a final TTP internal review and can be rejected without further information.
