Submission Specification for Conference Papers for Publication

1. Submission requirements

Conference papers must satisfy the following requirements:

1.1 Manuscript Submission

1.1.1 Originality: Is the work scientifically rigorous, accurate and novel? Does the work contain significant additional material to that already published? Has its value been demonstrated?

1.1.2 Plagiarism: All conference papers submitted to the IET for publication must record original work which has not been published previously. Any alleged cases of plagiarism will be dealt with according to the ‘IET Policy in Relation to Plagiarism, Infringement of Copyright and Infringement of Moral Rights and Submission to Multiple Publications’.

1.1.3 Multiple submissions: The IET does not permit manuscripts included in its conference proceedings to be simultaneously under review for another conference or publication.   

Once a case of multiple submissions has been established, the paper/s in question will be immediately declined for publication by the IET.

1.1.4 Relevance: Is the material appropriate to the scope of the conference to which it is submitted?

1.1.5 Clarity: Is the English clear and well written? Poorly written English may obscure the scientific merit of your paper. Are the ideas expressed clearly and concisely? Are the concepts understandable?

2. Post-print Policy

2.1.1 The author may post postprints of their conference papers published by the IET on repositories, servers and websites of any sort, provided that these servers are operated by the author’s institution or the funding body contributing to the research.

The conditions attached to this are as follows:

2.1.2 Access to such servers is not for commercial use and does not depend on payment of access, subscription, or membership fees.

2.1.3 The following wording clearly appears on the front page of the post-print:

“This paper is a post-print of a paper submitted to and accepted for publication in Conference Proceedings of conference title and is subject to Institution of Engineering and Technology Copyright. The copy of record is available at IET Digital Library” .

2.1.4 The post-print must be the author’s version and not the IET version/PDF.

2.1.5 The post-print must not be posted prior to publication of the paper by the IET and when posted any preprint version should be removed.
