Policy on re-use

Conference papers may be updated, or enhanced, for further publication as a regular journal article, including submission to journals not published by EDP Sciences. Journal articles derived from work previously published in conference proceedings must contain a substantial amount of new or previously unpublished results. The question of whether there is sufficient additional material to warrant a new publication, is a matter for individual journals to decide. To enable informed decisions by journals, we recommend the authors to supply their chosen journal with a copy of their proceedings article, accompanied with a clear statement describing the material reproduced. In addition, a journal article derived from a proceedings paper must include a citation to this proceedings paper.

Instructions for authors

We recommend that authors read EDP Science Publishing Policies & Ethics, and use their guidelines and templates to prepare their article.

Document type to be supplied: 

  • 170 x 250 mm paper size, one column format, in pdf format
  • Type of files: camera-ready PDF.

PDF guidelines

Authors are asked to supply PDFs for all online and print publication. Before making your PDF, please check our PDF guidelines.

Possibly the macropackage in LaTeX2e, designed for Web of Conferences, is also available via anonymous ftp from the ftp server:


Ethical Publication Practices

Web of Conferences journals are committed to the standards of publishing integrity and academic honesty. Editors, reviewers and authors are encouraged to refer to The Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) and to follow its Code of conduct and guidelines.

Serious misconduct (for example, data fabrication, falsification or plagiarism) is taken seriously into consideration and is further investigated. When a suspicion of misconduct turns out to be confirmed, the available sanction is applied.

Before publication, Web of Conferences will randomly review papers from each scientific conference using the powerful text comparison tool: iThenticate. This procedure aims to prevent scholarly and professional plagiarism.

Journals' Requirements

The journals make clear their aims and scope, editorial policy and manuscript requirements in terms of presentation and submissions.

  • Journals' instructions are available to any contributor.
  • Authors are expected to pursue objectiveness and rigour in all aspects of their work. Authors are obligated to provide retractions or corrections of mistakes.
  • The list of authors should accurately reflect who did the work.
  • Journals only consider work that has not been published and is not being considered for publication elsewhere.
  • Editors, authors and peer reviewers must disclose interests that might appear to affect their ability to present or review data objectively.
  • Journals recommend the use of a specific copyright and make it available on the journal pages.


For your information:
Web of Conferences
publishes full conference proceedings; therefore, publication proposals can only be submitted by conference organizers and authors cannot directly submit their articles.

There are no article processing charges for authors; all costs incurred are the responsibility of the conference organizers.

Once a paper has been published online, changes are only permitted in cases of serious scientific error. In those cases, an erratum is published according to the practices of professional scientific publishing.
