Publishing Timelines, Indexing, Scope and Fee Structure


Dear VectMag community:

Due to the numerous queries we have received regarding the publication timelines and indexing procedures of various publishers, we have decided to compile them in one place. After successfully organizing eight conferences, we have gathered findings that may prove helpful for you in planning your publications. Furthermore, we will explore the advantages and disadvantages that different publishers offer.


Note:

1. Please remember that no publisher or organizer can provide you with an indexing guarantee.

2. As conference organizers, we have spent 67-70% of our time ensuring authors correct the format and language in their manuscripts.

The price tag mentioned for various publishers includes grammar and format editing services, meaning authors can submit in any format, and our team will then format and fine-tune the language.


Taylor & Francis- CRC Press and Routledge:  Has been a strong publishing partner for VectMag conferences since its inception. The major advantages of T&F are the high reputation and visibility that it gives to your article. The citations of your article are linked to the visibility a publisher will offer to your publication. Their SCOPUS indexing track record is second to none and, in fact, as good as Elsevier. The only disadvantages are the 5 page limit time cycle of publication, which is slow compared to many other publishers operating within the same space. The cost of T&F from 2024 onwards will go up by atleast 20%.

SCITEPress: This is perhaps one of the faster publishers that comes with the feature of Series/Source indexing. While Taylor & Francis is a standalone indexing proceedings book, on the other hand, SCITEPress comes as proceedings with ISSN. Their track record of indexing since 2016 has been nearly 100%. They are also as affordable as Taylor & Francis. The only disadvantage in the short term is the indexing cycle that begins only after the 3rd Edition of the conference is completed. However, once indexed (Edition 1 to Edition 3), it becomes a source-indexed conference, and from the 4th Edition onwards, the conference is a SCOPUS indexed conference by default.

Question: So, what happens to the publications of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd editions?

Answer: They become source indexed in the SCOPUS database and never go out of the database.
