Editorial Summary (Editorial policy)

The manuscript for this Journal should be prepared in line with the Instructions to authors of EMC Review. Any manuscript submitted to our Journal must not have already been published in another Journal or be under consideration by any other Journal. Thus, all papers submitted to the Journal must be original contributions and should not be under consideration for publication in another Journal simultaneously. The manuscripts of papers presented at conferences can be submitted unless they have been published as part of the conference proceedings in a peer reviewed Journal. The authors are required to ensure that no material submitted as part of the manuscript infringes the existing copyrights, or the rights of a third party. The authors who publish in EMC Review need to transfer the copyright of their work to EMC Review to make it an open-access paper to global readers.

EMC Review follows double blind review with respect to contributors and reviewers; however, it is possible that a reviewer may have seen an earlier version of the research in the form of a conference paper, a paper presented at a research seminar, or a working paper. The Editorial Board is aware of author/s' identity.

  • Number of Reviewers: Most often two but sometimes more independent reviewers.
  • Average Time Required for Review: It depends from case to case. As we have already mentioned, most papers will be reviewed by two or more independent reviewers. They may also be read and considered by the Members of the Journal's Editorial Board and ultimately by the editor(s) before a decision is rendered. The reviewers are academics or professionals working in the field and also writing papers themselves. They offer their time and their expertise voluntarily in order to assist in the improvement of papers and to encourage new research in their topic of interest. Delays will inevitably occur when reviewers are busy. They may have a number of journals sending them papers to be reviewed. Our Journal may also receive high levels of submissions throughout the year. The Editorial Board of our Journal work tirelessly to ensure that peer review is as timely and rigorous as possible. Waiting times can vary, depending on the subject area.
