Publication Process

The RSD publications process contains five steps, creating long term engagement, a low entry threshold, and a high level of the final output:

  1. submission and peer-reviewing of abstracts
  2. presentations and dialogues at the RSD symposium
  3. post-production and submission of working papers
  4. publication of the symposium proceedings with SDRN as the publisher
  5. publication of selected fully developed and peer-reviewed scientific papers in an external publishing channel
