The 2nd International Conference Countdown


The scientific publishing is the ultimate purpose of scientific researches and studies. They are tools to spread science and knowledge. Furthermore, they contribute to the accumulation of knowledge it self. Hence, universities, laboratories, studies centres, and researchers tend to publish their studies in different scientific and academic publishing platforms such as journals and books, which play an essential role as information sources. Scientific publishing is also the basic infrastructure for establishing and developing higher education and scientific research. As well as, it reinforce international standards of universities and enhance research institutions'classification.

Although the continuous efforts and endeavours to promote scientific publishing in Algeria, they collide with many challenges and obstacles. First of all, the lack of commitment to the internationally accepted scientific publishing standards in Algeria, which negatively affected Algeria’s journals classification within international journals with a high impact factor. Second, the monopoly of the classification of periodicals and journals by certain institutions depending on unfair and unattainable conditions rather than the quality of scientific publishing. Besides issues directly related to the interests of the researcher, which mainly linked to the relationship of scientific research, professional and academic progress.

Many scientific journals and periodicals have appeared in recent years in the field of scientific publishing in Algeria.It was a positive start; however,with time, there has been a need to value these journals. The considerable number of scientific journals overshadowed the quality and the standards of publications.

This reality poses a challenge. In the intertwining of these data of the national and international evaluation system with those difficulties and challenges specific to the Algerian scientific environment, it has become necessary to discuss this reality in order to come up with solutions and mechanisms for its advancement based on the following questions:

  • How robust is the system of evaluatingscientific publishing in Algeria?
  • To what extent is the scientific publishing in Algeria evaluated?
  • What are the most critical difficulties we face?
  • What is the mechanism for its advancement?


The word of the university rector, the honorary president of the forum and the president of the Supreme Committee:

PhD. Ailem Elhadj - Ziane Achour University's Director - Algeria

I am pleased and honoured 
to welcome the guests of the international conference on the campus of ziyan Achour University in Djelfa in Algeria.

The university's mission, and desired goals, is to unite the efforts of the university family in order to draw a coherent plan to encourage creativity and excellence in the educational and research process. The university aims to build a society that enhances the knowledge and knowledge economy and strives with every effort to develop the service of the public scientific facility to achieve a respectable position that we would be among our national universities and the international competition. Since the scientific conferences are one of the most important scientific activities that contribute significantly to achieving the scientific renaissance at the university, we will host the second international conference:

  Evaluation of scientific publishing in Algeria in the light of the international experiences (The inevitability of reality and future challenges)

This conference is inspired by the belief in the importance of scientific publishing to enrich scientific knowledge and exchange experiences and expertise in the classification of universities, scientific and research institutions nationally, regionally, and globally.

The word of the General Supervisor and president of the Preparatory Committee of the conference:
PhD. Kamal Rouibah -University of Zian Achour -Djelfa-
Director of the Institute of Science and Technology of Physical and Sports Activities

Those who follow the movement of publishing in national and international scientific journals find that there is great sufferance for researchers in publishing their research, and these difficulties lay in the absence of mechanisms, whether in choosing the journal or how to publish in it. This international conference came as an inevitable result of the third national conference marked with the basics of publishing in refereed journals, during which we sensed the great interest of researchers on the knowledge of everything that is going on in the publishing field. Therefore, we, the family of the Institute of Sciences and Technology of Physical and Sports Activities at the University of Djelfa, decided to establish the second international conference marked as “Evaluating scientific publishing in Algeria in the light of international experiences.” that flow in the same context in order to satiate the researchers' understanding of improving the vision and answer the important questions in the topic of scientific publishing which are: What do I publish? How do I choose the appropriate scientific journal for publication? Moreover, because the Algerian university is part of the international universities system, we will answer through this international conference the aforementioned questions, hoping that they would be a real beginning for other conferences that address this issue, which is considered as the last and the important stage in carrying out a scientific research until they see the light and benefit society.
