Your conference at the Publishing house platform

Announce your conference for free on our Publishing house platform

The Publishing house "Sreda" invites educational institutions to announce a conference on the Publishing house's website, followed by the acceptance of articles and the issue of a collection based on the results of the conference.

The publishing house's platform is an electronic editorial office. For your conference, we will create a unique page on our Publishing house's website with the posted preprints of the articles accepted for the collection and the possibility of assigning a DOI to each article.

We will give as much information as possible to the scientific community about the conference you are holding, which will increase the geography of the conference participants and the scale of the conference to all-Russian and international. We will also take over publishing and printing services.

The review of articles submitted to the editorial board is carried out in two stages: by the publishing house and by an educational institution.

Publishing review involves checking for the article's compliance with the topic and requirements of the conference. An Anti-plagiarism test is carried out for compliance with the name of the conference and with requirements of the law for published materials and other technical characteristics.

In the personal account, the employee can receive all statistical information about the conference articles (geography, review status, history of interaction with authors, % of rejected articles, % of the originality of articles, etc.).
