Papers must be submitted exclusively as Email attachment (in Microsoft Word file format) to the Editorial Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and are accepted on the understanding that they have not been, and will not be, published elsewhere.
The corresponding author must give consent to publication in a cover letter sent with the paper, which also should explicitly state that the content and authorship of the submitted manuscript has been approved by all authors. A manuscript number will be mailed to the corresponding author same day or within 72 hours.
The manuscript should be as concise as possible, compatible with clarity and completeness. The title page should include the title of the work, the author's name(s), affiliation(s) and the E-mail address to which all correspondence and proofs should be sent, telephone and fax numbers should also be supplied, if available and present addresses of authors. Also, the cover letter should include the corresponding author's full address and telephone/fax numbers and should be in an e-mail message sent to the Editorial office, as an email attachment.
All articles must be submitted online. Electronic submission of manuscripts is strongly encouraged, provided that the text, tables, and figures are included in a single Microsoft Word file.
The following types of manuscripts are accepted for submission for publication:
These should describe new and carefully confirmed findings, the main text of full papers should be subdivided into Introduction, Results, Discussion and Experimental Procedures, and can include additional subheadings. The Results and Discussion sections may be combined. Experimental procedures should be sufficiently detailed to enable the experiments to be reproduced.
The style of main sections need not conform to that of full-length papers, but Short Communication manuscripts/articles are used for recording the results of complete small investigations or giving details of new models, innovative methods or techniques.
Reviews should be concise and reviews manuscripts are also peer-reviewed.
To ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review for submission to EJLJ, every effort is made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other; both reviewers and authors' identities remain anonymous. The paper will be peer-reviewed by three experts; two reviewers from outside and one editor from the journal typically involve in reviewing a submission. If revision is necessary, the author is sent the reviewer's comment and is asked to resubmit the updated, revised manuscript incorporating the suggestions and recommendations of the referees within three weeks.
All revisions must be accompanied with a letter detailing the changes made to the original manuscript; changes should also be indicated directly on the manuscript (e.g., underlined or coloured text). Revised manuscripts are re-reviewed at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief. The author of an accepted manuscript will be notified. He/She will receive page proofs ( in PDF) for proofreading prior to publication. Responsibility for accuracy in the final copy lies with the author. The Editor-in-Chief reserve the right to return a manuscript to the corresponding author without peer review if the manuscript does not comply with the Journal's Instructions for Authors. All submissions are subject to final approval and acceptance for publication by the Editor-in-Chief. It is the goal of the EJLJ to publish manuscripts within 6 weeks after submission.
The entire section of the manuscript must be typed double-spaced and all pages numbered starting from the title page. Acknowledgments, References, Table and Figure legends should follow the main text, each starting on a new page. The preferred position of tables and figures should be indicated in the margin of the text. Footnotes should be avoided.
The title Page should include the title of the work, the author's name(s), affiliation(s) and the E-mail address to which all correspondence and proofs should be sent, telephone and fax numbers should also be supplied, if available and present addresses of authors.
The Abstract which should be 100 to 200 words in length, should be completely self-explanatory and informative, it should briefly present the topic, state the scope of the work, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. Complete sentences, active verbs, and the third person should be used, and the abstract should be written in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided and literatures should not be cited. After the abstract, keywords of about 3 to 10 words that will provide indexing references to should be listed.
Generally, non-standard abbreviations should be used only when the full term is very long and used often and as such, a list of non-standard Abbreviations should be added. Each abbreviation should be spelled out and introduced in parentheses the first time it is used in the text.
The Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of disciplines.
Materials and methods should be complete enough to allow possible replication of the research. However, only truly new research methods should be described in detail; previously published methods should be cited, and important modifications of published methods should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address. Subheadings should be used. Methods in general use need not be described in detail.
Results should be presented with clarity and precision. The results should be written in the past tense when describing author's findings. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature. Discussion, speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the Results but should be put into the Discussion section.
The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on the topic. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. The Results and Discussion sections can include subheadings, and when appropriate, both sections can be combined. The Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc should be brief.
Tables should be typed as text, using 'tabs' to align columns. The use of table editors should be avoided. Do not use graphics software to create. Tables should be kept to a minimum and be designed to be as simple as possible. Tables should also be embedded within the main document file and be numbered consecutively. Tables should be self-explanatory and include a brief descriptive title. Footnotes to tables should be indicated by lower case letters but should not include extensive experimental detail. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. The details of the research methods should preferably be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text.
All figures should be embedded within the text inside the main document file and referred to in the text as Figure 1. Figure legends should appear adjacent to the relevant figure. Figure legends should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet. Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high resolution GIF, TIFF, JPEG or PowerPoint before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file. Tables should be prepared in Microsoft Word. Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.
Only full articles that have been published or are 'in press' may be included in the reference list. In the text; a reference identified by means of an author's name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses. When there are more than two authors, only the first author's name should be mentioned, followed by 'et al'. In the event that an author cited has had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a lower case letter like 'a' and 'b' after the date to distinguish the works.
References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order. Articles in preparation or articles submitted for publication, unpublished observations, personal communications, etc. should not be included in the reference list but should only be mentioned in the article. Journal names are abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts. Authors are fully responsible for the accuracy of the references.
Particularly if English is not your first language, before submitting your manuscript you may wish to have it edited for language. This is not a mandatory step, but may help to ensure that the academic content of your paper is fully understood by journal editors and reviewers. Language editing does not guarantee that your manuscript will be accepted for publication. If you would like information about one such service please kindly contact the Language Editing office at; firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Authors are liable for all costs associated with such services.
Page proofs will be sent to authors about 1 week after acceptance of papers and should be corrected and returned within two days of receipt. Electronic proofs will be sent (e-mail attachment) to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript and only corrections and essential changes can be made at this stage. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Because EJLJ will be published online without access restrictions, authors will have electronic access to the full text (PDF) of the article. Authors can download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.
Submission of a paper to Erudite Journals implies that the manuscript has not been published in, or submitted to, any other journal and that the author(s) have obtained appropriate permission to use data obtained for and contained in the manuscript.
