SolarPACES 2018 Proceedings and Reviewing Procedure

The proceedings of SolarPACES 2018 will be published online with AIP, the American Institute of Physics ( after the conference, covering papers with sufficient scientific quality.

This collaboration will provide optimum visibility of the proceedings and ensure that the authors’ publications remain traceable and citable. Final online papers will be freely accessible on the AIP website and contain an ISBN number for each volume as well as individual DOI numbers for each paper.

AIP Conference Proceedings are currently indexed in these databases:

  • The Conference Proceedings Citation Index (part of Web of Science)
  • Scopus (Elsevier)
  • Inspec

Only those authors whose abstracts have been accepted for an oral presentation or a poster will be eligible to submit full-length papers of their accepted abstracts. Please note that authors of oral presentations are expected to submit a full paper. Acceptance of the abstract does not guarantee acceptance of the paper for the proceedings. The full-length papers must be prepared following the guidelines and template of the publisher in order to be considered for review.

The submitted papers will be subject to a scientific peer-review process and will, at a minimum, be based on the review criteria below. Based on the peer-review process, the papers may be sent back to the authors for corrections/modifications to address the reviewers’ comments before a final decision is made or may be rejected without further consideration. Only those manuscripts that are accepted for publication will be published in the AIP proceedings.

Please note that the paper has to be presented at the conference to be considered for a publication.
