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. However, the GLOCAL retains the right to inedpendently make minor adjustments to the manuscript at its own discretion, such as style editing, shortening of paragraphs in order to align with page formatting, and so forth, understanding that these changes will not in any way affect the semantics of the paper. Should the author believe that the intentions of the author have changed through these edits, and more so after the paper has been published in the proceedings book or in any other rpublication (a GLOCAL journal, or any other pubiclation in a governing body that is either a derivative of the GLOCAL or that is a licensed partner of the GLOCAL), then the author must and can request a change of this text, agreeing that this change will be minimal. However, this change will not in any way constitue authority to withdraw the paper from the pubilcation.
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.

Originality

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

Unless clearly stated as developed through AI and for purposes of presenting data as AI built and for such an analysis, no AI content will be permitted as a false representation of what should be human generated text. Fabircated text through AI is strictly not permitted at any level and to any extent, and any papers submitted under such false pretences will be immediately rejected, and the authors will not be permitted to resubmit. All submissions are immediately scanned repeatedly and through many platforms for AI content, prior to submitting the paper to any other review process.

Plagiarism

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.

Authorship

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.

Presentations

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.

Submission Format

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.
