Call for Refereed Contributions The International Science Index warmly invites Journal Editors and Congress/Conference/Symposium/Workshop Organizers to submit their refereed abstracts and papers for abstracting and indexing in the scholarly and scientific information database as free of charge. The Case for Open Access Publishing Open Access stands for unrestricted access and unrestricted reuse. All manuscripts submitted to World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology are assumed to be submitted under the open access publishing model without any article processing and publication charges. In the open access publishing model, papers are peer-reviewed in the normal way under scientific editorial control. When a paper is accepted for publication, published paper appears electronically and is freely available from website at no cost. Authors may also use their published .pdf's for any non-commercial use on their personal or non-commercial institution's website. World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology applies the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license to works we publish. This license was developed to facilitate open access – namely, free immediate access to, and unrestricted reuse of, original works of all types. Under this license, authors agree to make articles legally available for reuse, without permission or fees, for virtually any purpose. Anyone may copy, distribute, or reuse these articles, as long as the author and original source are properly cited. The Benefits of Open Access Research Accelerated Discovery: With open access, researchers can read and build on the findings of others without restriction. Open Access expedites immediate access to your scholarly work. Open Access is optimized for visibility through internet search engines, resulting in being more frequently cited, more visible, and receiving greater impact. Public Enrichment: Open Access provides the global community barrier- and cost-free access to your important research. Open-access is more important than ever before. Improved Education: Open access means that teachers and their students have access to the latest research findings throughout the world.Open Access content is archived and digitally preserved. Open Access satisfies many requirements to publicly disseminate the results of peer reviewed research.
Editorial Review Policy

The International Scientific Committees (ISCs) are the vehicles through which World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology brings together, develops and serves its worldwide membership according to fields of specialized interest.World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology expects the ISCs to be at the heart of scientific inquiry and exchange in their domains and to share knowledge among them to foster a multi-disciplinary approach to Science, Engineering and Technology.

Editorial Policies for  Peer Review
The Full text paper submissions are peer-reviewed by the members of the specific International  Scientific Committees and Editorial Review Boards to assess their quality and relevance to scope of the specific journal issues / conferences. All full text papers are refereed, and the Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to refuse any manuscript, whether on invitation or otherwise, and to make suggestions and/or modifications before publication. Therefore, a full double - blind international refereeing process is used in which :

-Papers are sent to reviewers for their peer review process.
-The reviewers' recommendations determine whether a paper will be accepted / accepted subject to change / subject to resubmission with significant changes / rejected.

The Peer Review Process
The entire review process is full double-blind. The papers are taken through the following process. Topics which are relevant to the specific journal issues / conference theme, are selected for further reviewing.
 

A-Refereed Papers
1- The papers are sent to three reviewers identified as experts in the area of research. The anonymous reviewers are from different universities from around the world.
2- Papers are deemed acceptable once at least two reviewers give positive evaluation.
3- The authors get an acceptance letter and review form from the reviewers.
4- The authors are then advised to address the comments made by the reviewers.
5- On corresponding, the paper is referred back to the reviewers to check whether the comments are addressed. If the comments are not addressed, the paper is referred back to the authors to make good revisions.
 

B-Edited Papers
The accepted papers are then edited by the Editorial Board to remove the minor mistakes in punctuation, grammar and scientific format.

Types of Submission

There are three categories of submissions.

1) Category One: Abstract submission; If you would like to publish just an abstract in the conference proceedings, then you are requested to submit an abstract of your work.
