Publishing Transfer

By submitting an abstract, proposal, paper in full or part, poster, or any other material, to GLOCAL conferences, participants agree to the GLOCAL as receiving the publishing rights to this material, and as becoming the sole publisher of the material submitted, to publish this material in any format, such as in Conference Proceedings, Journal Publications, books, or any other on or offline domains. Here, the GLOCAL will ensure that all authorship details of the original author will be maintained. The GLOCAL also inculcates that the GLOCAL will at no point financially gain from this printing or reprinting, where any received monies will be directed in full to the author(s). The SOAS GLOCAL adheres to its repeated notice of the fact that it takes a firm stance against any pay to publish systems.

Any subsequent acknowledgement forwarded to authors, after the letter of acceptance into the proceedings, will simply constitute a reference for e authors, so as to remind the authors that the SOAS GLOCAL we continue to publish the work of the authors in order to boost the authors’ publication index.


All abstracts and proposals submitted to The GLOCAL must be original and must not at the time of submission to The GLOCAL conference be prior published elsewhere.


All abstracts submitted to The GLOCAL conferences must not contain plagiarized material.

Finality of Review Process

The GLOCAL review process, as double blind reviewed will determine whether the abstract is accepted for any of the GLOCAL conferences.

Adherence to GLOCAL Requirements

Abstracts must adhere to the requirements of GLOCAL conference guidelines.

Late Submissions

Special consideration may be given to late submissions, predicated on the need for achieving a specific number of papers in specific sub sections within each respective conference.


All abstracts, proposals, synopses and papers submitted to The GLOCAL conferences must have a maximum of two authors, that is, two main authors, or one main author and one co-author, unless otherwise stipulated at various times. This is in line with efforts to limit the abuse of such conferences and publications whereby authors attempt to increase their publication gravity and citation index by simply tagging a large group of colleagues in sequential fashion.


All papers presented at GLOCAL conferences must be in person presentations as The GLOCAL does not accept virtual presentations, unless otherwise stipulated at various times and for specific conferences.

Mandatory Attendance

Only abstracts and papers presented at GLOCAL conferences will be published in their respective GLOCAL conference proceedings, unless otherwise decided by the respective GLOCAL conference. Should the participating author(s) not attend and present the respective paper at any conference, then The GLOCAL reserves the right to reject publication of these abstracts an, synopses, and papers.

Certificates of attendance and participation

Authors and presenters whose abstracts have been reviewed and have passed the review process for inclusion into the conference program pending registration may receive a Certificate of Acceptance of Abstract, and hence permission to register for the conference. However, this certificate will stipulate that the author has not yet been accepted into the program and hence until such a time as when all necessary registration for the conference has been finalized.

Only authors and presenters who have completed all registration requirements for the respective conference and who have attended and presented at the respective GLOCAL conference will receive a formal Certificate of Attendance.


While the GLOCAL conferences stipulate that only an abstract is required for the initial submission for consideration of acceptance into the conference proceedings, the authors will be invite to submit an extended manuscript for the proceedings book, which will also be reviewed and revised, by the GLOCAL and its bling review system and blind editors. Here, the extended mansuript may be either the length of a proceedings book manuscript, that is, approximately 3000 words, or the length of a journal paper manuscript, that is, between 6000 and 12000 words. All rights with regards to these submissions will automatically transfer over to the GLOCAL upon submission, and more so, upon acceptance into the conference proceedings, whereby the GLOCAL will have full authority and permission to publish the manuscript, the abstract, or any other material submitted to the GLOCAL conference, in any such way that the GLOCAL chooses, yet with full notice to the author.
