Journals’ Special Issues
Conference organizers are welcomed to propose special issue publication for national/international conferences. Special Issue may include the full-length articles that were exhibited in the conference, symposium or workshop. Publishing special issue for conference papers in SSE-UK journals is possible only for original articles which are peer-reviewed and plagiarism free.
Proposals for the special issue in one of our journals are welcome at any time. The basic requirement for Special Issue publishing are as follows;

Guest Editor(s) are welcome to suggest any other necessary detail to be included/considered for the special issue.
All published articles are assigned a DOI. To help the journal carry the costs of the DOI registration, SSE-UK charges a fee of £ 1950, for the publication of special issues. Often, the budget of a conference allows a small sum for such purposes or the publication fee can be covered by a grant from the guest editors’ organizations. All other publication costs are carried by the publisher. It is not permissible to request a publication fee from the authors whose papers are published in the special issue.
