Peer Review Process

The submitted papers are subject to a peer review process in order to select for publishing the articles meeting the high standards of this conference on systems, automatic control and measurements. The reviewers’ identities are not disclosed to the authors, nor are the authors' identities disclosed to the reviewers.

When a abstract is submitted to the conference, it undergoes an initial prescreening by the Editorial Board in order to determine whether or not the abstract fits the scope of this conference. If the Editorial Board finds the abstract meets the conference’s minimum standards for publication, then authors are invited to upload their camera-ready paper which undergoes the reviewing process.

In the main reviewing phase, the assigned Track Director sends the received papers, without the name and affiliation of the authors, to two experts in the field, by using the on-line web management system. The electronic evaluation form used by reviewers contains a checklist in order to help referees to cover all aspects that can decide the publication. In the final section of the evaluation form, the reviewers must include observations and suggestions for improvement that are sent to the authors, without the names of the reviewers.

All the reviewers of a paper remain anonymous to the authors and act independently before, during and after the evaluation process. They have different affiliation, are usually located in different countries, and they are not aware of each other’s identities. If the decisions of the two reviewers are not the same (accept/reject), the paper is sent to a third reviewer.

The final decision for publication is done by the Conference chairman based on the scrutiny of reviewers and the scope of the conference.

The Conference chairman is responsible for the quality and selection of manuscripts chosen to be published, and the authors are always responsible for the content of each article.
