Isn't this more of a presentation issue? The publish date that is stored in the database should be consistent and based on the server. You can format the date and time for a specific culture when you display the publish date on the page. Maybe this can help:

The scenario is, user selects a publish date(scheduling) which is according to his local time. The time it is pulished is GMT time. How can we align this time? can we display only publish date according to GMT time? or can we set globalization property to convert any date to GMT?

If you are working in editorial interface, such as publishing and schedule publishing, your local time zone is taken into account. However if using scheduled jobs in admin interface, this is done in server time. Mostly this is same as your local timezone. But for websites with editors and administrators in different time zones this time zone can be different. In this case, contact our hosting and find out what time zone is applicable for your site.
