Ethical Publication Practices
The Eucass conference is the high level scientific forum for European aerospace players. It is the second largest biennial continental conference dedicated to aerospace enabling sciences and technologies, after AIAA’s Scitech in the USA. The conference is divided into five symposia, namely Flight Dynamics and GNC, Flight Physics, Materials and Structures, Propulsion Physics and Systems, all of which are the core disciplines of aircraft, rocket and satellite design and operation. Each of these symposia attracts between 80 and 150 communications, organised in parallel sessions, each of which features 6 to 8 papers, following the selection/rejection step leading to the elaboration of the conference programme.
The Eucass conference is committed to the highest standards of publishing integrity and academic honesty. Editors, reviewers and authors are encouraged to refer to The Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) and to follow its Code of conduct and guidelines. Serious misconduct (for example, data fabrication, falsification or plagiarism) is taken seriously and will be investigated further. If misconduct is proven, sanctions will be applied.
The publication compiles the best publications presented at the EUCASS conference following a rigorous two-step procedure instigated by the Technical Committees:
- Each session is co-chaired by two experts; these experts are tasked with identifying the best presentations as regards, innovation, excellence and clarity, and finally notifying the relevant symposium Technical Committee chairpersons of their selection. At the close of the conference, the short list features about one third of the papers presented.
- The preselected papers are subsequently sent for review to two referees. In the end, 25% of the papers presented are cleared for publication.
The Editorial Committee of the Eucass conference is formed with members of the symposia Technical Committees.
