As the author of the submitted paper, it is your responsibility to ensure that the manuscript contains both a technically and grammatically correct content. Authors are required to produce their manuscripts in the format specified in the submission template.
All papers should be written in good English and the general good practice for scientific articles should be obeyed (e.g. ELSEVIER, DFG, Deutscher Hochschulverband). This is the responsibility of the authors, not the editors. Work below the standard will be returned to the authors for rewriting and may be rejected for this reason alone. Mathematical formulas and equations must be presented professionally and in standard format. General format and style can be found in the provided submission template. For detailed information on creating mathematical formulas and equations, see the Word guidelines.
In order for papers to be published via the repository of the Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology and University Library (TIB), the authors must transfer a right of use for their paper to the operators of the repository (Leibniz University Hanover and TIB) – for online provision in the repository. By submitting your paper, you agree to accept the license agreement or authorize the organizers of the conference to accept it for you. For more information, visit the TIB repository at https://www.repo.uni-hannover.de.
As the author of a submitted paper, you will automatically be included in level 2 of our Peer-Review process to review a paper by another author. For this purpose, you will receive an e-mail with the paper to be reviewed as well as brief instructions and further information no later than two weeks after the submission deadline. In parallel, another author will be asked to review your paper. After you have completed the review, it will be released by the CPSL team and forwarded to the author. Please note that the reviews for your own paper will not be available until you have completed the review for the other author. You will be informed about the availability of your reviews via mail. If you have not been assigned a paper for review three weeks after the submission deadline, please contact the CPSL team.
Reviewers should evaluate the papers based on the manuscript’s merits. Age, race, colour, ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and institutional affiliation must not influence the review. The reviewers must complete their work within the timeframe set by the editor (see Reviewers Deadline). Reviewers must also refuse to review any manuscript for which they have a conflict of interest.
Although a critical evaluation of the manuscript is appropriate, the reviewers should formulate their comments in a positive tone. The reviewer’s comments should be clear and recommend a particular course of action. The reviewers should pay particular attention to good practice in science and citation. In addition to their remarks, reviewers should make a general recommendation for rejection, revision and resubmission or acceptance. Information in manuscripts is confidential until the manuscript appears in print. Reviewers must refrain from seizing information in unpublished or rejected manuscripts for their own purposes.
The editors have full and final authority to decide whether a manuscript is accepted or rejected. Editors manage the communication of manuscript information with reviewers and authors as needed. The identity of the reviewer is not disclosed. Manuscripts and their content are otherwise confidential. Editors use software tools to identify unoriginal text and combine their own comments with those of the reviewers. The editor can accept the paper without changes, ask the authors to revise and resubmit the document, or reject the paper. The editors communicate the results of the review in a timely manner. The editors reserve the right to edit, refine or shorten the manuscript as necessary.
