Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication. Copyrights for articles published in our conference are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the organizing committee. The organizing committee /publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author’s responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.

About Publishing Process

a) Submission Acknowledgement
When you submit a manuscript, the editor or editorial assistant sends an e-mail confirmation to the submission’s author within one to three working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, please check your bulk email box or contact the editorial assistant by email: apcase2017@apcase.org.

b) Basic Review
The editor or editorial assistant determines whether the manuscript fits the conference’s focus and scope. Next, a check for the similarity rate is done using Turnitin or CrossCheck, powered by iThenticate. Any manuscripts out of the conference’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are rejected.

c) Peer-Review
We use a double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers’ and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The submitted manuscript will be reviewed by at least two experts: one editorial staff member as well as one to three external reviewers. The review process may take about 1 month.

d) Decision Is Made
The decision to accept or reject an article is based on the suggestions of all reviewers. If differences of opinion occur between reviewers, the program chair/editor-in-chief will weigh all comments/suggestions and make a balanced decision based on all comments, or the second round of peer review might be initiated.

e) Notification of the Result of Review
The result of review(s) will be sent to the corresponding authors through email.

f) Registration Fee Is Paid
If the submission is accepted, the authors revise paper and pay the registration fee.

g) E-copy Proceedings Are Mailed
After publication, one E-copy of the conference proceeding will be sent to the corresponding author. If you want more copies, please order at apcase2017@apcase.org.

h) Publication Notice
The authors and readers will be notified and possibly invited to visit our website to see new opportunities/consider options to publish their articles.
