  Authors' Responsibility
Authors' Responsibility

Proofreading and copyediting (grammar rules, semantics, punctuation, spelling, etc.) are among the authors' responsibilities in both: their submitted articles and, if their respective submitted articles are accepted, the final version of their respective papers. This is because:

  1. The basic function of the proceedings is to relieve authors of the burden of distributing their presentations. Consequently, the authors are responsible for the content of their respective papers, as well as for their respective proofreading and copyediting (details regarding this issue can be found on the conference web site under the tab "General Info" and then under the menu option "Functions of the Proceedings").

  2. An increasing number of journals explicitly include among the authors' responsibilities the proofreading and copyediting of their respective articles. For example, the policy of Elsevier-Scopus' journals explicitly and clearly provides:

    It should be the authors’ responsibility to ensure that grammar and spelling is correct. The editor of course may highlight in their decision about an article that the authors need to attend to this type of problem. There should be minimal amount of editing if any. For those authors writing in English as second language some publishers now offer a service for a fee to help authors who do not have English as their first language with this issue.” (Scopus, 2014, The Role of Editors, section 28; retrieved on November 18, 2016 from https://www.elsevier.com/__data/assets/pdf_file/0005/95117/SC_FAQ-Role-of-an-Editor-22092014.pdf).

  3. Consequently, authors are expected to proofread and copyedit both: their submitted articles and, if their respective submitted articles are accepted, the final version of their respective papers. Submitted articles should also be proofread and copyedited via our two-tier review methodology. Reviewers may recommend the refusal of a paper if grammar and spelling are not correct, especially if the paper is hard to understand due to inadequate English. It is not the responsibility of the reviewers to proofread or copy edit the article they are reviewing, but they may recommend its refusal if it has not been adequately written and, consequently, does not have the expected level of understandability. The final version of any article necessarily requires a minimum level of understandability in order to have any kind of impact; which is the main purpose of any publication.
