Author Guidelines

Author Representations

Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before, and that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities-tacitly or explicitly- at the institute where the work has been carried out. The Organizing Committee will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

Permission

An author, when quoting from someone else's work or when considering reproducing figures or table from a book or journal article, should make sure that he is not infringing a copyright. Although in general an author may quote from other published works, he should obtain permission from the holder of the copyright if he wishes to make substantial extracts or to reproduce tables, plates or other figures.

If the copyright holder is not the author of the quoted or reproduced material, it is recommended that the permission of the author should also be sought. Material in unpublished letters and manuscripts is also protected and must not be published unless permission has been obtained.
Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are strictly prohibited. In order to protect intellectual property rights of others and the authors' own academic reputation, we are strongly against this ruthless conduct.

Submission of a paper will be interpreted as a statement that the author has obtained all the necessary permission. A suitable acknowledgement of any borrowed material must always be made.

Publishing process:

  1. Authors submit papers via the email: icmnee@gmail.com. Paper format should be in Word (preferred).
  2. Editor performs an initial technical check (paper field, structure of submission, adherence to the submission instructions and English language usage.), called "Pre-reviewing" with one week. Papers that go through Pre-reviewing will be assigned to related reviewers for refereeing.
  3. Papers will be refereed in one month.
  4. The Organizing Committee will send the review reports to authors for paper improvement at the first time once at least two constructive review reports are received.

  7. Acceptance notification will be sent to the corresponding author and the registered author.
  8. Author should pay the registration fee, and update the final version of paper per the registration instrcutions.
