Once a paper is submitted to ICES submission system , the review process starts, as follows:
1. Anti-Plagiarism Screening
We conduct the first review of the submitted papers to ensure that all papers are clear, authentic and relevant to the conference material. Details about plagiarism you can find in the attached ICES Presentation. We submit all papers to the Plagiarism Scanner:
2. Expert Review
Every paper submitted to ICES conference is sent to at least two reviewers that include members of the Program Committee and additional qualified sub-reviewers.
Each paper is reviewed by at least three reviewers. After the paper has been reviewed, the conference chairs examine the paper and the reviewers’ comments. Then the conference chair makes the final decision on each paper. Once the paper reviewed, every author will be able to view the reviewers’ comments. The author will learn the paper’s average scores on originality, contribution to the scientific community, use of references, presentation of ideas, language level, and other relevant informations.
4. Paper Approval
Acceptance of the paper is based on the relevance, originality, technical soundness, presentation, references, and scientific merit of the paper. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper. If the Author does not agree with the decision he can make appeal – during so-called “rebuttal phase”.
