SiliconPV Proceedings and Reviewing Procedure

The SiliconPV conference proceedings will be published with TIB Open Publishing. All papers meeting the requirements on scientific quality will be available in an open access conference proceedings series. TIB Open Publishing is a new service of TIB, “Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology University Library” in Hanover in Germany, the world’s largest specialist library for technology and natural sciences.

TIB-OP's open-access policy means that authors retain copyright and all content can be reused unrestrictedly according to CC-BY 4.0. The proceedings will or should be indexed in Google Scholar, the Conference Proceedings Citation Index (part of Web of Science), Scopus (Elsevier) and other important scientific databases world-wide. 

Publication with TIB-OP provides optimum visibility of the proceedings and papers and will ensure that the authors' publications remain traceable and citable.
