Journals Publication

EuroAsiaSPI² 2020 editorial teams will select papers from the book and propose an extended version (50% must be different) to be published in a journal. From 2020 onward EuroAsiaSPI² 2020 collaborates with WILEY Journal of Software: Evolution and Process (SPI Best Practices), IET Software (Gamification), JUCS (Journal of Universal Computer Science)  for Safety and Cybersecurity. More cooperations will be announced.

This means that additionally ca. 20 articles will be selected for submission of a minimum 50% extended journal publication. For each journal there will be an extra call. Submission of papers is through the EuroSPI submission process.

Review Process for Proceedings

All papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the EuroAsiaSPI² programme committee. Papers will be evaluated according to originality, significance of the contribution, quality of written and graphical presentation, research method applied and appropriateness of comparison to relevant research and literature.
