Aims and Scope
Current Proceedings on Technology seeks to encourage research and scholarly written proceedings about any aspect of current issues in technology Current Proceedings on Technology is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal on technology and devoted to be a joint platform for presenting and discussing the emerging developments on technology in an international arena. The aim of the journal is to publish proceedings to contribute to the development of technology field.
The journal will publish selected papers from conference proceedings with an emphasis in applied technology disciplines, for example software and information technology. Conferences should be relevant to an international audience, with a focused theme and cover timely topics. Conference proceedings are accepted for publication in based on suitability of scope and are required to meet certain criteria, including the assurance that all papers are original, will be subject to peer review and will not be published elsewhere.

Current Proceedings on Technology will cover proceedings in all topics of technology-related disciplines incorporating the fields of Computer Science, Information Technology, Engineering, Nano-technology, biomedical, Educational Technology and etc.
The journal is indexed in prestigious databases worldwide such as Google Scholar, Asian Education Index, InfoBase Index, International Institute of Organized Research (I2OR) and Scientific Indexing Service (SIS).
In addition, the published issues submitted to SCOPUS and Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index – CPCI (ISI Web of Science) for evaluation for inclusion in the list.
Copyright aims to protect the specific way the conference proceeding has been written to describe a scientific research in detail. It is claimed that this is necessary in order to protect author's rights, and to regulate permissions for reprints or other use of the published research. Current Proceedings on Technologyhave a copyright form which is required authors to sign over all of the rights when their manuscript is ready for publication.
Current Proceedings on Technology offers a single, highly recognized platform where conference papers can be hosted and accessed by millions of researchers worldwide. Researchers have the opportunity to access conference papers related with their fields easily.
All proceedings appear online within 10 weeks of acceptance of the final manuscripts via the conference organizer and are freely available to all users.
To ensure discoverability and citability the final forms of online papers are individually metadated, XML versions are optimized for search engines, references are linked and DOI (Digital Object Identifier) numbers are added through CrossRef.

Current Proceedings on Technology strongly encourages the publication of research worldwide to provide freely available and downloadable on‐line publications and peer‐reviewed research. In order to achieve this aim, Current Proceedings on Technology develops and follows general policies to help authors and researchers and clarify our position on key issues. It is a general principle that the editor of the journal is entirely and independently responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal should be published or not.

Current Proceedings on Technology consistently and proactively endeavors to make publications fully accessible to all users. Current Proceedings on Technologyprovides open access (OA) articles that are available online to the readers without any financial, legal, or technical requirements or sanctions and is committed to providing long-term, sustainable access to qualified scientific research for everyone.
All authors and researchers must adhere to publication requirements in which submitted work is original and has not been published elsewhere in any language before. Work should not be submitted concurrently to more than one publication unless the editors have agreed to co-publication.
The authorship of research publications should accurately state individuals’ contributions to the work. The list of authors should accurately reflect who carried out the research and who wrote the article. For collaborative research, who has done what and who takes responsibility for the conduct and validity should be clearly indicated to readers.
Copyright aims to protect the specific way the article has been written to describe a scientific research in detail.

- Misconduct and redundant publication
In cases of suspected or alleged research misconduct, Current Proceedings on Technology follows the COPE standards. If substantial amount of evidence of misconduct is found, some steps to correct the scientific record, which may include issuing a correction, retraction or withdrawal of the publication are followed. Research misconduct includes fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results. Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them. Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record. Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.
If you have any concerns about potential misconduct, please email the journal. Address correspondence to the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, Chief Editor, or Editorial Director as appropriate. If misconduct is suspected, journal editors will act in accordance with the relevant COPE guidelines.

Our referees therefore play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of Current Proceedings on Technology and all manuscripts are peer reviewed following the procedure outlined below.
During review process we use iThenticate or Turnitin plagiarism software. So, it is recommended that authors should scan with iThenticate or Turnitin plagiarism or other free plagiarism software of their manuscripts.
