Publication Ethics: Plagiarism is strictly forbidden
Ethical conduct is the most essential virtual of any academic. Any act of plagiarism is a totally unacceptable academic misconduct and cannot be tolerated. So all submitted manuscripts should be original, unpublished, experimental and theoretical. If an author is found to commit an act of plagiarism, the following acts of sanction will be taken if the author is found to commit an act of plagiarism:
I. The authors' supervisor(s) and affiliated institution(s)/Universities will be informed about their/his/her act of plagiarism
II. The article will be rejected or be deleted from the final publications.
III. The authors' act of plagiarism will be reported to the appropriate overseeing office of academic ethics and research funding agency.
Full Paper Review Process
ICNST operates a system of double-blind peer review. A submitted paper is assessed by at least two reviewers.
When papers are submitted, they are immediately reviewed in-house to see if they conform to accepted academic norms, and to screen out incomplete or time-wasting submissions.
All papers which have passed this initial review are then assigned to two reviewers. Each reviewer is asked to read the paper thoroughly and then give comments in the review form.
Notification of Acceptance or Rejection
Full Paper authors are usually informed of acceptance or rejection within four weeks of full papers submission. Accepted authors will receive an email notifying them of the results, as well as an official letter of acceptance and review form as PDFs. Abstract authors are usually informed of acceptance or rejection within two or three weeks of abstract submission. Accepted authors will receive an email notifying them of the results, as well as an official letter of acceptance as a PDF.
Tips for a Good Presentation
Whether you are a seasoned presenter or a nervous first-timer, the following tips are intended as a simple guide.
What to Bring
Bring your presentation on a USB drive, bring a copy on a second USB as a back-up and email the file to yourself ahead of time in case of loss or failure. In addition, you may bring along printed copies of your presentation, your full paper or other handouts, to distribute to audience members. We also recommend that you bring business cards.
Important: Please ensure that the file name of your presentation begins with your own name or Paper ID, rather than naming the file “ICNST” or “Japan”. This ensures you don’t waste valuable presentation time searching for the file.
Aim to arrive the conference room at least a few minutes in advance before the session starts. Time is of vital importance in making a presentation, so please be aware of the overall length of your presentation, as well as how the time is divided within your presentation, to ensure that you leave the appropriate amount of time for each point.
How Long Is the Ideal Presentation?
You have a 15-minute slot allocated in which to present, but your presentation itself should be no longer than 15 minutes. We would suggest aiming for around 12–13 minutes. This will allow ample time for directly engaging with the audience through discussion and questions.
Practice Makes Perfect
Long before the conference, make sure you spend ample time distilling and crafting your ideas into a well-thought-out presentation. Do NOT just read out your paper – a well-written paper does not equal an interesting and effective presentation.
Practice delivery, timing and use of visuals a long while ahead of the event with your colleagues and friends. Invite feedback and incorporate their criticisms as you polish your presentation, which should be interesting and informative, well paced and lively. Show your passion for your subject: enthusiasm is infectious!
