A Lecture Note is an overview of an important research or development topic, authored by some expert contributors to the field. The content of a lecture note is similar to a book but more focused. The position of a lecture note is somewhat between a book and a journal paper. Each lecture note should have a minimum of 78 pages and a maximum of 250 pages based on our template. If your lecture note has more than 250 pages, you should consider splitting your lecture note into different volumes.
There is no publication fee/article-processing charge, unless you explicitly require the following paid services from us: (1) proof reading, (2) copy editing and typesetting, and (3) translation. The decision of whether your proposed lecture note will be accepted for publish is independent from whether or not you require our paid services. If you have any question, please feel free to contact us.
Many authors find that they need help in writing their manuscripts in English to a sufficient standard. We receive many requests for this type of help from authors and also from editors who are trying to cope with the language problems of their authors. Referees also often request that manuscripts are rewritten before they are able to assess them in detail.
In iConcept Press, we provide language editing services. Language editing services work with the author to correct grammatical errors and other problems with the language of the manuscript. The basic charge is USD$15/page. If a page mainly contains figures, tables or citations, we may not charge that page.
Copyright on any lecture notes published by iConcept Press is retained by the author(s).
Authors grant iConcept Press to publish the manuscript and identify iConcept Press as the original publisher. Authors also grant any third party the right to use the manuscript freely as long as its integrity is maintained and its original authors, citation details and publisher are identified.
Upon submitting a manuscript to the lecture notes published by iConcept Press, all authors automatically certify that:
In the reviewing phase, we only accept PDF file. Please format your manuscript using our template. We provide MS Word Template for MS Word users:contact us.
You may suggest potential peer reviewers for your manuscript. You can input their names and emails when you submit your article through the Online Paper Submission System.
Note: intentionally falsifying information, for example, suggesting reviewers who are your staff, students or even yourself, will result in rejection of your manuscript and may lead to further investigation in line with our misconduct policy.
Depends on the length and content of your article, it may take up to 3 months to find a suitable reviewer and another 1-2 months for reviewing your manuscript. Please be patient in this lengthy process.
After we reviewed your lecture note, we will notify you though email. You can login your account to see the review report. Please revise your paper according to the comments. If you found any comment is not appropriate, please let us know.
Once your lecture note is accepted for publication, you have to upload a camera-ready version. Camera-ready is a term used in the commercial printing industry meaning that a document is, from a technical standpoint, ready to "go to publish".
Your camera-ready version must be editable by us (e.g. a MS Word document). Please do not upload a non-editable document (e.g. a PDF document) to us. You must copyedit your camera-ready article using our template. We provide MS Word Template for MS Word users:contact us.
If your camera-ready version does not comply with our template, we reserve the right not to publish it. If you do not want to copyedit the lecture note by yourself, we are happy to help you to do with an article-processing charge of USD$9/page for the first 100 pages and USD$6/page thereafter.
All lecture notes will be published and distributed using the following two channels:
