Peer review is vital to the quality of published
research. All papers submitted to ICFST 2021 will go through the
double-blind peer review process before publication.
How does it work?
Peer review is a process in which a scientific paper is evaluated by a group of experts in the same field to make sure it meets the necessary standards for acceptance and publication.
The Technical Program Chair will appoint a Technical Program Committee. And the Technical Program Committee collaborates to review and discuss submitted papers. The Technical Program Chair is ultimately responsible for the selection of every accepted paper. ICFST 2021 uses double-blind review mode. In double-blind, neither the author nor the reviewers are aware of each other's identity.
