As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word file format (.doc or .docx).
  • The manuscript must be in single-column format and NOT more than 12 pages in length, including references.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a Times New Roman 10-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

Author Guidelines

Submission

In order to submit a manuscript, an account has to be created first. Existing users need to sign in and start the process by clicking on “Submit article“ on the homepage.

All necessary information has to be entered in the submission form, and all required files duly uploaded to the system. Manuscript submissions are accepted only in word format (.doc or .docx).

For the correct style and formatting, please use the journal template.

Review process

Upon submission, the manuscript enters a review process as described in detail here. Briefly, after passing the initial checks, the manuscript undergoes a single-blind peer-review by at least one reviewer from the relevant scientific field. Finally, the author is informed whether the manuscript has been accepted, rejected, or sent back for (major or minor) revision.

Plagiarism policy

Submitted manuscripts are expected to comply with the journal's Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement. This includes the prohibition of plagiarism, i.e. the use of someone else's work without the proper citing of the original author and source.

Submissions to the EJSDR journal are being checked using the Plagiarism Checker by Grammarly®. In case of the detection of minor plagiarism, authors are asked to revise the manuscript. However, in the case of significant plagiarism being detected, the manuscript is directly rejected for publication.
