Mit dem Ziel, nationale und internationale Fachleute unterschiedlicher Disziplinen der Produktentwicklung aus Industrie und Wissenschaft in den Dialog zu bringen, hat das Fraunhofer IAO gemeinsam mit dem Institut für Konstruktionstechnik und Technisches Design IKTD, dem Institut für Maschinenelemente IMA und dem Institut für Arbeitswissenschaft und Technologiemanagement IAT der Universität Stuttgart das Stuttgarter Symposium für Produktentwicklung SSP ins Leben gerufen.
The editorial board is responsible for, among other, preventing publication malpractice. Unethical behavior is unacceptable and the Scientific Conference “Stuttgarter Symposium für Produktentwicklung” does not tolerate plagiarism in any form. Authors who submit articles to the Conference Proceedings “Stuttgarter Symposium für Produktentwicklung” affirm that manuscript contents are original. Furthermore, authors’ submission also implies that the manuscript has not been published previously in any language, either fully or partly, and is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere.
Editors, authors, and reviewers, within the Scientific Conference “Stuttgarter Symposium für Produktentwicklung” are to be fully committed to good publication practice and accept the responsibility for fulfilling the following duties and responsibilities, as set by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE, http://publicationethics.org/resources/guidelines). Misconduct and unethical behavior may be identified and brought to the attention of the editors at any time by anyone.
The submitted abstracts and full papers will be double-blind peer reviewed by two peers each.
The authors assign by an explicit contract to the organizers the right to use their contribution, including the rights of usage, distribution, publication, recording, transmission, reproduction and archiving. The authors retain the copyrights to their submitted contributions including the rights to publish elsewhere.
At least one author per contribution must register for the conference. They have to pay the fee as announced on the conference website linked below. The fee includes the cost for the conference attendance and the publishing costs.
The proceedings will be published under the name of the symposium under ISSN 2364-4885. Since 2017 the proceedings are published open access on OPUS – the Publication Server of the University of Stuttgart (https://elib.uni-stuttgart.de/). They are permanently and freely accessible on the Internet in the long term and worldwide. Citation capability of the publications is guaranteed by a permanent, stable Internet address (Persistent Identifier).
