The peer review process and the editing process will be done by the Scientific Committee together with reviewers invited by CHNT. Please Note that ALL papers will be peer reviewed!

Peer-reviewed papers can receive one of four possible recommendations:

• accepted as is
• accepted with minor revision (including English language, referencing and formatting)
• accepted with major revision (including English language, referencing and formatting)
• rejected

In the case of acceptance with minor or major revisions, you will receive the reviewers’ comments that will help you to improve your manuscript and a brief comment on referencing and formatting. Papers requiring major revisions must be accompanied by a brief statement of how the comments have been addressed. A rejected manuscript cannot be resubmitted.

After the paper has been accepted, it will be copyedited by the editorial team. The editors will contact you and ask for your approval regarding changes and corrections of your manuscript and its layout.

We strive to improve the quality, impact and visibility of the CHNT proceedings and adhere to international publishing standards. Therefore it is mandatory for authors to add information on funding and possible conflicts of interest. Please use the according section in the template.

We want that fair credit is given to all contributors of the papers. We ask you to provide information on the role of all contributors using the Contributor Role Taxonomy. Please use the according section in the template.
