Process to submit and get materials/content posted

On Resources/Post Materials section of the website, the following information will be
required to submit before your material is considered to be posted: Name of the Authors,
Year, Title of the publication, venue where it was published (Journal, unpublished material, reports
etc); short description, upload the file, and if the material is peer-reviewed or not.

If the material has been peer-reviewed, then it is assumed that it has been scientifically
approved. The Director or Associate Director will skim the document, read the abstract,
conclusions and discussion and the material will be posted.
If the material has not been peer-reviewed, then the Executive Committee will revise the
content. If there is no potential conflict with our Values and Philosophy, the materials will be
sent to the entire forum community asking for comments a week before their publication on
the website.

If the Executive Committee identifies any potential conflict with our Values and Philosophy,
the materials will have to be routed to the Advisory Committee and they will submit a voted recommendation to the Executive

The Director and Associate Director will make a final decision according to the materials at
hand and the recommended decision submitted by the Advisory Committee. The materials will be then
published or a rejection for publishing the content will be sent to the author on behalf of the
Executive Committee with an explanation of why it was rejected.
