SWS Call for Reviewers
Manuscript reviewers are a vital tier of the publication process. SWS  constantly welcomes new scientists with a wide range of expertise to join the SWS Group of peer reviewers.

We believe that the paper peer review is the fundament for safeguarding the scientific quality and integrity of the high-level science. The high impact of the SGEM Conference Proceedings and the SWS Journals is assured with the International Scientific Committee of distinguished scientists as well as the Reviewers Committee group (section).
We recognize the value and importance of the peer review of the entire publication process not only in shaping the individual manuscript, but also in shaping the credibility and reputation of the SGEM Conference publications.

 

Would you be willing to act as a reviewer for abstracts and manuscripts, submitted to the SGEM Conferences and SWS Journals?
We cordially invite you to participate in SGEM paper peer review process!
Research scientists who are highly qualified in one or in more scientific sections of the vast scientific areas – “Earth and Planetary Sciences” or “Social Sciences and Art” and have proven scientific publication record, are welcome to join the Reviewer section of the SWS Scientific Committee.

The Scientific and Program Committee select researchers, part of the Reviewers list, to be reviewers for every SGEM event. If you are selected, you will receive invitation from the Scientific and Program Committee for paper’s peer review process. Then you will have an access to the Abstract & Manuscript Management System (AMMS).

A modern Abstract & Manuscript Management System (AMMS), will help each Reviewer to review and evaluate abstract and manuscripts in the easiest way in user-friendly environment. There will be a double blinded peer review - very important, in order to assure completely fair peer review process, without any conflict of interests.

The estimated criteria in the AMMS: Within scope, Originality, Structure, Title, Abstract/Introduction, Methods, Figures and Tables, Results, Conclusion, Language. <

You would be expected to evaluate:

  • If the abstract is original or new?
  • If the study design and methodology are appropriate and described so that others could replicate what is done?
  • If the presented results are clearly and appropriately?

 

  • If the conclusions are reliable and significant?
  • If the work is of a high enough standard to be published in the Conference Proceedings or in SWS Journals and to be presented on the Conference?

The fair and timely review process done by the reviewers is the key factor for the selection of high-quality papers for presentation and publication. We greatly appreciate reviewers for their contribution to the success of the conference.
