Write Your Paper 1. Please prepare your papers on the basis ofTemplate.
2. The submitted papers must not be under consideration elsewhere.
3. Every paper should be checked via CrossCheck, Turnitin, or other duplicate checking systems. Otherwise, the authors should be responsible for the result of rejection due to plagiarism. All papers that are suspected of plagiarism will not be published or indexed and will be announced publicly on this conference website.
4. Rigor and reproducibility: papers must include enough detail that the research can be reviewed for rigor and reproducibility. Papers that do not include enough detail to adequately assess the research may be rejected in the early reject phase.
5. Please send the full paper through the email. Before you submit your papers, please check all the information and make sure your papers are the final version.
6. Contact: Should you have any questions, or you need any materials in English, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
7. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend and present at the conference. If authors cannot attend for any reasons, the technical program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be made.
Upon initial submission, the assistant editors will determine whether the submission is appropriate for ICBCTIS or should be desk rejected. Desk rejects are made to save our reviewers' time. Desk rejected submissions will not be assigned to a reviewer, and their authors will receive a brief note about the rejection.
The rest submissions will undergo a single blind peer-review process. Each manuscript will be assigned to reviewers who should have high expertise on the topic of the paper(s) they are asked to review. They will be asked to provide a detailed review of the submission and will be asked to provide a first round, summary decision placing the paper into one of the following categories:
1. Accept with Minor Revisions: There are only minor changes required to make the submission suitable for publication. Editors are responsible for ensuring the changes are made before the paper is fully accepted for publication.
2. Revise and Resubmit: Reviewers feel that there is potential for a publishable outcome for the submission, but not without major revisions to address issues enumerated by the reviewers.
3. Reject: The reviewers do not feel that either of the categories above is appropriate. A submission will thus be rejected if the reviewers feel that the required revisions would not be achievable within this short time frame.
Authors of the papers with the Revise and Resubmit decisions are invited to submit a revision of their submission by the resubmission deadline. All the resubmissions will be reviewed by the original set of reviewers. The result of the second round review is either Accept with Minor Revisions or Reject. Authors do not have a chance for another round of major revisions. Final revisions for papers with the decisions of Accept with Minor Revisions (in both 1st and 2nd rounds) will be checked by the program committee, and a final decision will be made on each paper and communicated with the authors.
During the peer review process, editors, and reviewers look for:
Scope: Is the article appropriate for this publication?
Novelty: Is this original material distinct from previous publications?
Validity: Is the study well designed and executed?
Data: Are the data reported, analyzed, and interpreted correctly?
Clarity: Are the ideas expressed clearly, concisely, and logically?
Compliance: Are all ethical and journal requirements met?
Advancement: Is this a significant contribution to the field?
