Before to submit your work be aware that the editorial process is the same than for an online Preprint service. Therefore, all works receive doi number and are indexed in databases (GoogleScholar, Publons, etc.). However, the works published here are preliminary communications and not post-print journal papers. In this sense, committee and/or external reviewers check only scope and apparent scientific soundness. The works may receive also comments from registered participants (public post-publication review). The authors are encouraged to submit their works to a peer-reviewed scientific journals of MDPI or other editorials during or after finalization of the conference, as per SciForum copyright rules.
In any case, it is the duty and responsibility of the authors solely, to ensure the veracity of the contents, checking similarity to other works, and carry out a proper citation of previous works. The committee is not responsible of this previous aspects in this publishing modality. In this sense, we strongly recommend the authors to use online text-similarity checking services to avoid any form of plagiarism or copyright violation. The authors may be requested to modify the communication (re-write their texts) in the case that high similarity is detected and reported to the committee. In these cases, the manuscript could be put on standby or withdrawn temporarily until the authors re-submit the proper version. The authors are also allowed to submit short reviews, comments, letters, or discussions of papers already published if they guarantee sufficient difference to previous public contents.
