CEUR-WS.org Core Values
CEUR-WS.org is an online publication service for editors of scientific proceedings,
in particular workshop proceedings.
The principles of CEUR-WS.org define how we implement our core values:
- Freeness and openness:
The publication service is free of cost and openly accessible for the
academic community. The freeness of costs refers to the main publication service,
i.e. to publish a submission that is essentially free of errors.
- Clear copyright:
The authors shall keep the copyright to their papers. The editors
keep the copyright to the proceedings as a whole.
- From scientists for scientists:
The service is managed by scientists for the scientific community.
Those who contribute to the success of CEUR-WS.org shall also
be the ones that benefit from the rewards.
CEUR-WS.org is committed to the quality of its content. We therefore
only publish peer-reviewed proceedings.
The internal communication within the CEUR-WS.org is confidential,
in particular when issues about a submission are discussed.
Once a volume is published, its original content is kept intact.
The original published papers are never edited after the publication
- Unique style:
The proceedings volumes published at CEUR-WS.org have a common style that
informs the reader about the origin of the publication.
The service focuses on a single function: making proceedings available
under a short and persistent URL.
The CEUR-WS.org Team is unbiased to submissions and towards the scientists who submit
volumes. The sole criterion for publication is the quality of the proceedings / series.
- Professional communication:
We assume a professional and positive attitude in communication with proceedings editors.
Important changes to CEUR-WS.org are discussed within the whole team before a decision
is actually made. Nobody from the team should be excluded. Opportunities for
leveraging the success of CEUR-WS.org are shared in the team.
The official communication with proceedings editors is on behalf of the whole team.
If mistakes occur, we help each other to correct them.
