The peer review for the paper is different from the peer review for the abstract, based on which the paper is accepted for the conference. A paper accepted for the conference may be rejected for publication if it does not meet the scientific standards. The full papers sent for publication are subject to both a peer review process from Lumen Publishing House, as well as an evaluation process from reviewers of partner journals and publishing houses.


In order to have a more successful collaboration, we exhibit a number of important issues   that  LUMEN Conference 2014 accepted authors  must observe and acknowledge :

  • Full papers sent in evaluation  must comply with Elsevier requirement, Procedia Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • The authors who submit Full Papers  must prove English language  correction by a certificate given by an English proofreading specialized  company, which is distinct then  translation agencies or linguistic departments.
  • LUMEN 2014 proceedings will be submitted for indexing ISI Thompson Reuters, by Procedia  Social and Behavioral Sciences, works being evaluated individually, case by case by Thomson Reuters.  We quote from the Elsevier  answer : “The proceeding is evaluated on a case by case basis by Thomson Reuters.”
  • From our inquiry  in Thomson Reuters database, the majority of previous Conferences  are already indexed which makes us have confidence that our proceedings will still be indexed considering the great prestige of  Elsevier Publishing.
  • All papers published in the proceeding are directly indexed by Scopus  an Elsevier database.
  • Authors submitting articles for publication in this volume, declare they are aware all the  mentioned  publishing rules  and conditions of  indexing presented.
  • Lumen Association is exempt from any liability of the  third party work . Lumen Association assumes responsibility for the good development of the conference and the  selection process based on peer review.
  • Proofreading is the responsibility and interests of authors and its absence may be cause for non-acceptance to publication  of the paper, even if the work have a definite scientific value.
  • Full paper final version sent to Elsevier cannot be modified after.
