Peer Review Policy
By submitting a paper to APEE 2021, the authors agree to the review process and understand that papers undergo a peer-review process. Manuscripts will be reviewed by appropriately qualified experts in the field selected by the Conference Committee, who will give detailed comments and-if the submission gets accepted-the authors submit a revised version that takes into account this feedback. All papers are reviewed using a double-blind review process: authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers do not know each other's identities, nor do the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript. The Committees of APEE 2021 invest great efforts in reviewing the papers submitted to the conference and organizing the sessions to enable the participants to gain maximum benefit.
APEE conference is requested to adhere to the following minimum standards:
l Unbiased consideration is given to all papers offered for publication in the proceedings regardless of race, gender, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship or political philosophy of the authors.
l No terminology shall be used that, in the opinion of the Press, is offensive or might be perceived to be offensive to others.
l Authors and Editors agree to comply with our ethical policy, and understand that the Press has the right to investigate any suspicions and/or allegations of misconduct relating to published proceedings.
l Conference papers shall meet all the usual standards of quality for the publication. However, referees shall take into account the conference nature of the papers and so consider background papers more favorably than would be normal for a regular paper. These allowances shall not go so far as to approve papers of low scientific standard or papers that have been published in written form elsewhere. Review papers are also welcomed and accepted.
l Reviewers shall give a clear statement of recommendation for each paper and supply comments to support their recommendation suitable for transmission to the author.
l Editors and Organizers shall only accept papers where there is clear support from the reviewers
