    Quality Control

    Quality Control 1:
    New Associate Editors, New Members in the Editorial Boards, New Guest
    Editors in Special Issues are welcome provided that the Advisory Board
    of WSEAS will approve them after peer review in their Biographies and
    checking their recent publications record in Scopus, EI Compendex,
    SCIE, ESCI, IET etc

    Quality Control 2:
    New Reviewers are welcome provided that the Advisory Board of WSEAS
    will approve them checking their recent publications record in Scopus,
    EI Compendex, SCIE, ESCI, IET etc

    Quality Control 3:
    WSEAS can sponsor financially or technically some conferences provided that
    a) The Organizers/Chairmen of these Conferences are Professors in
    reputable Universities,
    b) The Organizers/Chairmen of these Conferences have important
    academic records of recent publications record in Scopus, EI
    Compendex, SCIE, ESCI, IET etc, great participation in research
    projects and have supervised at least 1 Ph.D. dissertation
    c) The Organizers/Chairmen of these Conferences will provide to the
    WSEAS the list of their reviewers (Names, Academic Affiliation,
    Academic Web Address, Phone, Academic Email),
    d) The Organizers/Chairmen of these Conferences will provide to WSEAS
    the reviewers' comments of 20 papers randomly selected by the WSEAS
    from the conference program (as a sample),
    e) The Deadlines of these Conferences do not generate concerns for the
    conference peer review.

    Quality Control 4:
    Before the commencement of the Peer Review, organized by
    Editor-in-Chief or some Associate Editor, WSEAS makes a pre-screening
    quality control / review checking the following:
    a) Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism avoidance control via Turnitin and
    iThenticate.
    b) The English Language of the paper.
    c) Affiliation of the prospective authors (i.e. Do they belong to a
    University or to a real company or to a real institute? can their
    university be identified? can their Academic URL be identified on the
    web? Do they use academic/professional email addresses? have they
    provided a phone number when they uploaded their paper? Does their IP,
    from where uploaded their paper, agree with their country?),
    d) The References (i.e. Are the references adequate? Does the paper
    include references from the last 5 years? Can the references be traced
    easily via google, Do the references report the year of the
    publication?).
    e) Are there indications that some prospective authors have not
    substantially contributed to the research?
    For example a paper in Civil Engineering with an author from a surgery
    clinic in a Hospital.

    Roughly, 20% of the papers are usually rejected in this pre-screening
    quality control / review checking. This acts as a first filtering
    which saves valuable time of the Reviewers and the Editors-in-Chief.


    Quality Control 5:
    WSEAS uses a compulsory certification from all the authors and for all
    the papers in order the Administration of WSEAS to certify and
    authenticate that each accepted paper by the Editors-in-Chief is
    backed by a minimum of 3 reviewers' positive recommendation. Download
    this Certification - Evaluation of the Review Process from here:

    http://wseas.org/multimedia/au
    thortestimonials/CERTIFICATION.docx
    In case that some authors feel that they have not received, at least,
    3 positive opinions from 3 independent reviewers with strong peer
    review, they should not sign this form. All the Certifications -
    Evaluations of the Review Process for each paper are available to
    everybody after a simple request by email 
    support@wseas.org,
    wseas.transactions@gmail.com

    Update: The Certifications are published now on the web, together with
    their papers


    Quality Control 6:
    The Certifications have also this declaration - confirmation: "Also,
    we declare also that no reviewer, no Associate-Editor, no
    Editor-in-Chief, no member of the WSEAS Secretariat, nobody whatsoever
    and never forced me in WSEAS Journals to add references / citations to
    any previous WSEAS Publications or any other publications"

    Quality Control 7:
    Responses to Reviewers (required): For every revised version, the
    authors will reply using these tables

    http://wseas.org/multimedia/Re
    sponses.docx They will upload them via
    the web or will send them by email. Authors will have to make all the
    changes, modifications, additions, studies, corrections asked by the
    reviewers using the 
    http://wseas.org/multimedia/Re
    sponses.docx Authors
    have to be fully complied with the reviewers' instructions. Before the
    publication, the three (or more than three) reviewers will check, if
    the changes, modifications, additions, studies, corrections etc have
    been carried out. In this case, the paper will be published or will be
    rejected or a new round of peer review will start.

    Quality Control 8:
    The WSEAS offers consistently high quality, line by line, thorough,
    rigorous, strict peer review process and very high editorial standards
