Scientific Committee at APMAA Headquarters
updated on January 31, 2019)

Background thought for adding Quality Control function to APMAA
An important
mission of APMAA, as an international academic association located in Asia, is to provide regional researchers an easy-to-access platform for communicating their research results with overseas colleagues.

There exist broad variations in quality (relating to content, writings, etc.) among papers submitted to APMAA parallel sessions. Some are very good, i.e., may be at the level that a good scholarly journal will accept. On the other hand, the quality and writing style of some papers is far from good.

APMAA must guarantee that the research results reported at their annual conferences are honest, accurate and can be relied upon (quality control). However, cconference organizing teams and paper review teams (local scientific committee) are different every year in their experiences, skills, and in their level of commitment to paper reviews. 

The Scientific Committee at Headquarters, by acting as a steward, supports local conference organizing teams and paper review teams to ensure the integrity and the reliability of the manuscripts in the proceedings (quality control). This support by the Scientific Committee at headquarters is essential because of the reasons described above.

At a very early stage (up to 3-4 years ahead the conference) the Scientific Committee at Headquarters assigns a chief(s) to each conference to support an organizing team and a review team.    

Chiefs contact local scientific committees of forthcoming conferences and co-work with them to guarantee quality of the conferences. Chiefs attend at the Conference Organizers Committee meetings and the Conference Paper Reviewers committee meetings and lead the deliberations about conference quality control.
