Manuscripts should be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as indicated in the Call for Papers. Submission of a paper will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. All articles submitted to JEMI for publication are subject to a double-blind peer review that provides an independent assessment of the article's quality and relevance with respect to JEMI standards.
Requirements for the Submission of Articles
- Manuscripts should be written entirely in English and adjusted to the sample paper (see below).
- Manuscripts will not be reviewed by or be sent to any other publication during the period of review.
- Manuscripts report the elaboration of theory or empirical results that have not been published previously.
- Manuscripts should be submitted in Word, Times New Roman 12pt. font without columns.
- Manuscripts should be submitted in the American Psychological Association Publication Guide (APA) sixth edition format. Guidelines for citation can be found below.
- We welcome all empirical methods including, but not limited to, qualitative, quantitative, field work, laboratory, meta-analysis, and the combination of methods or mixed methods.
- Manuscripts should include title and author’s name and surname on the first page only because of blind review purposes. Do not write name, surname and author’s note in the rest of the paper.
- Manuscripts should typically be 10-15 pages single spaced (5000-8000 words), the font size and type: 12 pt, Times New Roman.
- We require an abstract of no more than 500 words and the key words of the article. This should be written in the same file the manuscript is.
- Figures and tables should be delivered in the text and should be numbered consecutively (Table 1, Figure 2).
- Authors are required to submit a declaration for authors.
Below, please find attached a sample paper, an example of reference list, a declaration, and a review form.
To evaluate each submitted publication, at least two independent reviewers will be appointed. The adopted solution is a model in which the author(s) and reviewers do not know their identities (the so-called "double-blind review process"). The review is in writing and ends with an unequivocal conclusion whether the article is accepted for publication or rejected. The publication will be approved/rejected if the merit criteria and the editing criteria are/ are not met.
Ghostwriting and guest authorship
Reliability is one of the foundations on which we build quality in science. Readers should be absolutely certain that the authors of the publication transparently, reliably and honestly present the results of their work, irrespective of whether they are its direct authors or whether they used the support of some specialized entity (natural or legal person). The proof of the scientist's ethical behavior and the highest editorial standards should be found in the openness of information concerning the subjects contributing to the publication (merit, material, financial and other contributions). This is the reflection of not only decency but also of social responsibility.
"Ghostwriting" takes place when someone made significant contribution to the creation of the publication, but his role was not revealed either as one of the authors or in the acknowledgements included in the article. "Guest authorship" ("honorary authorship") happens when the authors contribution is negligible or when the contribution never occurred and yet they are the author/co-author of the publication. All discovered cases will be exposed, including passing this information to relevant entities (institutions employing the authors, scientific societies, associations of scientific editors, etc.).
To prevent the cases of "ghostwriting" and "guest authorship" the editors oblige the authors to submit a signed declaration in this matter.
