e) The Deadlines of these Conferences do not generate concerns for the conference peer review.

Quality Control 4:
Before the commencement of the Peer Review, organized by Editor-in-Chief or some Associate Editor, WSEAS makes a pre-screening quality control / review checking the following:
a) Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism avoidance control via Turnitin and iThenticate.
b) The English Language of the paper.
c) Affiliation of the prospective authors (i.e. Do they belong to a University or to a real company or to a real institute? can their university be identified? can their Academic URL be identified on the web? do they use academic/professional email address? have they provided phone number when they uploaded their paper? Does their IP, from where uploaded their paper, agree with their country?),
d) The References (i.e. Are the references adequate? Does the paper include references from the last 5 years? Can the references be traced easily via google, Do the references report the year of the publication?).
e) Are their indications that some prospective authors have not substantially contribute in the research?
For example a paper in Civil Engineering with an author from a surgery clinic in a Hospital.

Roughly, a 20% of the papers are usually rejected in this pre-screening quality control / review checking. This acts as a first filtering which saves valuable time of the Reviewers and the Editors-in-Chief.

Quality Control 5:
