Before the review process, the articles will be tested with a specific software for plagiarism detection. 

The total similarity percentage reported should be less than 20-25%, (depending on the significance of the content reported as similar to other works) and the individual similarity percentage (corresponding to one reference item from the report), must be less than 1%.

Using 3rd Party Materials:

Please familiarize yourself with the Springer Nature Guide to Copyright and Permissions, which contains advice on including third-party content or material that you have created yourself and published elsewhere in your manuscript. Please note that we require that permission be uploaded electronically together with your manuscript. Upon submission you will be asked to declare whether third-party content is included and, if so, that suitable permission has been obtained. Your book will not move into Production unless permissions are complete submitted and properly acknowledged in the manuscript.

Third-party content is defined as any material within the manuscript that is not your original work. Third party content may consist of text passages, figures, photos, poems, song lyrics, screenshots, etc. and be found in many places such as, but not limited to, the Internet, print and online books and articles, theses, annual reports, conference material, photocopies, course packages, and translations. In particular, you should pay close attention to sensitive images containing identifiable persons, logos, brands/trademarks, images from agencies, or from the Internet as well as text content such as song lyrics, poems, interviews, social media content and references to commercial entities.

To obtain permission to use third-party material in the manuscript visit the Rights Holder website or Copyright Clearance Center. If the material is not found, please exert your best efforts to use our Permissions Request Form and/or Release Request Form (to obtain permission from interviewees or other identifiable individuals or the owners of identifiable property in source material) for your request. If the rights-holder issues their own form, please ensure that the document they provide includes all Required Rights listed in the ‘Guide to Obtaining Permissions’ section in our Springer Nature Third Party Permissions Guidelines.

It’s a good idea to begin the permissions-clearing process as early as possible, to avoid delays to the publishing process. You may also need to negotiate with rights-holders if they do not meet our requirements. It is crucial that the rights you obtain are sufficient to cover the rights you have granted to us as publisher under your publishing agreement.

Please run any permissions queries past us if you’re unsure.

Please pass on the links to the Atlantis Press proceedings guidelines and the information on third party material to all corresponding authors.

We strongly recommend that all paper authors include their affiliation and e-mail address in their manuscript.
