Science Talks

SSNR / Science Talks

Additional benefits to attending an Elsevier conference!

The 34th International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials is partnering with both SSRN and Science Talks - widen the reach of your work beyond the conference to an even broader audience.

If your research is accepted for presentation at the conference, poster authors can choose to include their abstract and poster PDF within the pre-print service SSRN, and oral presenters can include their abstract in SSRN, and a recording of their oral presentation in the video journal Science Talks. Both are open access, have DOI’s and have no publishing charges for presenters at Elsevier Conferences!


SSRN is an open access research platform used to share early-stage research, evolve ideas, measure results, and connect scholars around the world. With over 2.5 million registered users, the potential is there for your research to reach millions of SSRN viewers and subscribers around the world.

SSRN hosts conference proceedings within our library using our Proceedings Hosting solution. SSRN helps extend the reach of the papers within the proceedings, the conference event and the accepted/invited authors by hosting and distributing proceedings through our global, interdisciplinary platform. Conference proceedings on SSRN are displayed on a permanent, logo-branded page and are freely accessible to all users.

SSRN does not take copyright or exclusive rights so there are no license transfer forms for authors to fill out and authors/copyright holders are free to publish/reuse the work elsewhere without restriction from SSRN.

SSRN helps increase and measure the impact and reach of papers, including proceedings papers, in multiple other ways:

  • SSRN aggregates the total downloads for all papers included in a conference proceedings.

  • SSRN provides article level metrics which include total abstract views, downloads, and citations.

  • SSRN is integrated with PlumX Metrics to provide article-level information on the impact and usage of papers on SSRN, including citations, social media, news and other mentions, and more.

  • Second, eligible submissions are submitted to Crossref to receive an SSRN DOI which ensures the author can stake their claim in their work very early in the sharing process.

  • Third, Google and other search engines crawl SSRN, so papers do appear in search results for Google, Google Scholar, etc.

  • Lastly, all papers on SSRN are evaluated for distribution and posting in up to 12 of our "Subject Matter eJournals" which registered SSRN users subscribe to in order to receive email alerts containing the latest uploaded papers in their field(s) of interest.

Science Talks

Science Talks is an open access journal that publishes original, peer-reviewed videos of scientific presentations, tutorials, and news and views. We are pleased to announce that we are working with the organisers to develop a special issue with a collection of videos from this conference and we are waiving our normal publishing charges. We hope you are willing to participate so that we can extend the reach of your presentation to an even broader, global audience.

The journal is open to submissions from all areas of mathematical and physical sciences, engineering, medicine, biological sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Published videos are accompanied by a manuscript that includes an abstract, figures, tables, and references presented in the video.

There are many benefits to publishing in Science Talks:

Videos are content rich

Video content is more memorable and engaging. All submissions are peer-reviewed, and recordings undergo a quality check prior to publication to ensure our high standards are met.

Videos are easy to submit

Our easy-to-use template makes it easy for participants to submit a manuscript to accompany their video.

Videos are freely accessible

All Science Talks videos are immediately and freely available to download and use. Published videos receive a DOI so that they can be cited, and they are hosted on ScienceDirect—the world’s largest scientific content platform with 20 million+ active users. We also add closed captioning and a transcript of the video prior to publication.

Videos are free to publish

There are no publication charges for authors who are Elsevier conference presenters.

Videos complement full-text articles

The focus of this special issue is the video presentation, which means that it is complementary to related full-length research articles published in another journal, special issue, conference collection, or as an independent article.

Reuse of previously published content in SCTALK

We must republish figures under the terms specified by the rightsholder who grants us the permission. If the original figure was not published open access but was published in a subscription article for example, whilst we can include the figure in OA content we must credit the original source and include in the credit line that it was published with permission from the rightsholder. This ensures readers of SCTALK content are aware that reuse of the figure requires permission from the original rights holder.

Unless the original figure from the third party publication was published under a CC BY license Elsevier requires permission to republish it. The key is who holds copyright to the original figure.

Reuse of SCTALK content in future publications

All content published in Science Talks is published under a CC BY license. Neither authors nor other third parties require permission to use this content. The CC BY license allows others to use the content for both non-commercial and commercial use with no permission required. The user must only credit Science Talks as the source appropriately.
