Review Procees for Book and CD-ROM:
Papers will undergo thorough peer review by 3 international experts. Reviewers have always proper academic qualifications (recent publications in SCOPUS and ISI). You will receive comments from those 3 reviewers and your paper might be
* a) accepted as it is (unaltered)
* b) accepted after minor revision
* c) accepted after major revision
* d) rejected
We cannot guarantee acceptance for cases b) and c), if the reviewers are not satisfied by your response and your (minor or major) modifications to your conference paper.


(c) After new peer thorough review of their extended versions in well-known and reputable international scientific journals depending on the quality of each paper (Indexed in ISI, SCOPUS, ACM, DBLP, EI Compendex, AMS, ACS, CiteSeerX, Zentralblatt, British Library, EBSCO, SWETS, EMBASE, CAS, Scholar Google etc) as well as in various Springer Verlag Books (Check our Previous Books in Springer).
Review Process for Extended Version in collaborating journals:
Extended Versions of high-quality journals will undergo again thorough peer review by 3 international experts. You will receive comments from other reviewers and your extended paper might be
* a) accepted as it is (unaltered)
* b) accepted after minor revision
* c) accepted after major revision
* d) rejected
We cannot guarantee acceptance for cases b) and c), if the reviewers are not satisfied by your response and your (minor or major) modifications to your extended paper.

(d) E-Library with free access for all (no username, no password).
