Reviewing and publication process

Manuscripts are selected for publication in the EJSE based on the editorial assessment of their suitability and the reports from reviewers. Articles that satisfy editorial criteria will be sent to two reviewers who have agreed to assess the article quickly. This journal uses double-blind peer-review, which means that the reviewers of the paper won’t get to know the identity of the author(s), and the author(s) won’t get to know the identity of the reviewer. The idea is that everyone should get a similar and unbiased review. Contributors may suggest reviewers; requests for the exclusion of specific reviewers will also be considered.


Plagiarism

If plagiarism is detected during the peer review process, the manuscript may be rejected. If plagiarism is detected after publication, we may issue a correction or retract the paper, as appropriate.

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to:

  • Directly copying text, ideas, images, or data from other sources without attribution
  • Reusing text from your own previous publications without attribution or agreement of the editor
  • Using an idea from another source with slightly modified language without attribution.
