Guide for Authors


Our global society is at a crucial crossroads towards a sustainable, liveable future. We believe that through enhanced understanding of and aligned actions in the broader areas of health, energy and technology we will be able to promote transitions to a brighter future for everyone.

Global Transitions Proceedings is a fully Open Access solution focusing entirely on publishing full sets of conference proceedings, enabling fast, world-wide dissemination so that conference delegates can publish their papers in a dedicated online issue on ScienceDirect.

Global Transitions Proceedings will publish papers from conferences with an emphasis on transitions in the broader fields of health, energy and technology.

The peer review of each proceedings will be under the responsibility of the conference organizers who, according to international peer review standards, may use single blind, double blind or open peer review. For details specific to the conference peer review process, please contact the conference organizer or the guest editor of the conference.

Proposals for publication of proceedings in Global Transitions Proceedings are subject to approval by its Editor-in-Chief.

For authors publishing in Global Transitions Proceedings, accepted manuscript will be governed by a CC BY or CC BY-NC-ND license:

How are conferences evaluated for inclusion in Global Transitions Proceedings?

Conference proceedings are accepted for publication in Global Transitions Proceedings based on suitability of scope and are required to meet certain quality and ethical criteria, including the assurance that all papers are original work by the authors, will be subject to peer review and that the same paper will not be published elsewhere. The Advisory Board will evaluate all proposals on the bases of key information related to the conference provided by the organizers, including, but not limited to, the conference website, programme, supporting organization and contact details of the committee and keynote speakers. KeAi may make contact with members of the committee and keynote speakers to obtain further information about the conference during the evaluation process.

What does Global Transitions Proceedings offer authors and conference organizers?

Global Transitions Proceedings offers a high quality, well respected, global platform for conference papers to be hosted and accessed by an audience of millions of researchers. All proceedings appear online, on ScienceDirect, within 10 weeks of submission to the Publisher of the final manuscripts from the conference organizer and are integrated into the regular search functions of ScienceDirect and are freely available to all readers. Global Transitions Proceedings offers authors and conference organizers a fast and cost effective way to provide maximum exposure for their proceedings papers.

A template will be provided to assist in the publication and the final online papers contain linked references, XML versions and DOI numbers.

Why should conference organizers choose Global Transitions Proceedings for their proceedings papers?

There is no limit to the amount of papers a Global Transitions Proceedings issue can contain and pricing is affordable, clear and transparent. Global Transitions Proceedings offers immediate access for all, with papers online within 10 weeks of submission to the Publisher, and open access for end users providing maximum exposure for individual papers and the related conference. Conference organizers are credited on the actual issue and are fully responsible for quality control and the review process.

Use of word processing software

It is important that the file be saved in the native format of the word processor used. The text should be in single-column format. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Most formatting codes will be removed and replaced on processing the article. In particular, do not use the word processor's options to justify text or to hyphenate words. However, do use bold face, italics, subscripts, superscripts etc. When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs, not spaces, to align columns. The electronic text should be prepared in a way very similar to that of conventional manuscripts (see also the Guide to Publishing with Elsevier). Note that source files of figures, tables and text graphics will be required whether or not you embed your figures in the text. See also the section on Electronic artwork.
To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor.

What are the cost associated with Global Transitions Proceedings?

There is an agreed fee, payable by the conference organizer, based on the number of papers included in the proceedings. This fee is kept to a minimum and is charged to cover the costs of preparing and publishing the volume, hosting it online, ensuring future accessibility on ScienceDirect and providing free access to all readers. A quote for costs will be provided upon receipt of a completed proposal form and based on the information provided - see below.

In addition to the online version there is the possibility, for an additional fee, to request paper copies, CD-ROMs and USB sticks.
