Leaders of the Scientific Publishing Industry Recommend Practices to Ensure Technical Conference Content Quality
IEEE, Elsevier and the Institution of Engineering and Technology join together
28 December 2015 – IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization advancing technology for humanity, today announced it has worked with other publishing organizations, Elsevier and the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), to create recommendations regarding best practices to help ensure technical conference content quality. The recommendations can be found in IEEE’s White Paper on Ensuring Conference Content Quality (PDF, 251 KB).
The aim of the recommended practices white paper is to bring forward best practices that will help to ensure that high-quality, scholarly conference content continues to be developed, published, and disseminated within the global information community for its own ultimate benefit.
On 1 November 2015, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) formally endorsed the White Paper on Ensuring Conference Content Quality, co-authored by Elsevier, IEEE, and the IET. In addition, ASCE contributed new content to the paper regarding its subject-matter scope and best practices in technical program development.
The white paper containing IEEE’s recommendations for technical conference content quality include suggested guidelines regarding:
• Written quality requirements of conference proceedings content • Selection of content: conference presentations and peer review • Commercial or non-commercial publisher acceptance criteria for conference proceedings • Conference proceedings content with respect to conference scope
“IEEE is proud of its 129-year heritage in producing the highest caliber and most well-attended conferences in support of technology and engineering professionals. IEEE follows strict editorial guidelines for the peer review and evaluation of articles that appear in IEEE periodicals and conferences to ensure that the content is of the highest quality possible, in addition to serving a leadership role in sharing best practices," states Mary Ward-Callan, IEEE Managing Director, Technical Activities.
“The scholarly publishing industry is always working to deliver quality content, and in today’s environment, it is a challenge,” states Ward-Callan. “By joining forces with the other leaders of the industry, we can ensure that we are sharing the newest and best ways to promote these best practices in order to constantly put out the highest quality content.”
