We strive to ensure that every article is published in a timely manner. However, there is simply too much variability in the submission process, such as the willingness of reviewers to evaluate a paper on a particular topic, for us to guarantee a specific timeframe for article publication. We do, however, publish journal articles online first, as soon as they’re ready, with a full citation. Complete issues follow at regular intervals.
No, we can’t accept article that have been previously published in other journal. However, we do understand that many submission many be evolutions of previously published works. For this reason, we allow submission to consist of no more than 15% previously published work.
We would be glad to have you review articles for potential publications. If you would like to do so, please send your CV and a brief statement of your research interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please go to the homepage of the journal then you have chosen guide for authors.
Manuscript that are accepted for publication will be checked by our copy editors for spelling and formal style. This mayn’t be sufficient if English is not your native language and substantial editing would be required. In that case, you may want to have your manuscript edited by a native speaker prior to submission. A clear and concise language will help editors and reviewers concentrate on the scientific content of your paper and thus smooth the peer review process.
Authors will be asked to transfer the copyright of their manuscript to the publisher (or grant the publisher exclusive publication and dissemination right). This will ensure the widest possible protection and dissemination of information under copyright laws.
The Online First service lets users access peer reviewed articles well before print publication. These article are searchable and cited. With Online First publication the time it takes for critical discoveries to reach the research community is significantly reduced.
The online publication represents the official publication of research results. It isn’t simply a prepublication service on the part of the publisher. As soon as article is published online, it is citable and quotable. If changes are then made, confusion can easily arise, with authors citing different versions of the same publication. Thus, after online publication, further changes can’t be made in the paper.
Authors have the right to disseminate their article’s Offprint (as a printout or by email) to their co-authors and research colleagues (for personal use by such colleagues). It is allowed to distribute the eOffprint via a webpage.
