CSS Ethical Rules of Publications
Publication Etiquette and Ethics are important themes carefully monitored within the publications of the Control Systems Society. In particular, see the CSS Policy on overlapping conference/journal submissions.
Recently, to address and investigate allegations of possible misconduct by Authors of papers submitted to or published in a CSS journal or conference, the CSS has instituted the Standing Committee on Ethics in Publishing.
