Submission Preparation Checklist

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 authors confirm that they wrote the manuscript themselves, without any ghostwriting services. The JEMDS journal does not allow the use of AI software for text production, and manuscripts that use such tools will be rejected. The editorial board has the right to reject manuscripts for these reasons at any point in the review or publication process.
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • This text is likely part of a research paper or article and refers to the inclusion of URLs for the references cited in the paper. If the URLs are available, they will be provided to allow readers to easily access the sources and verify the information presented in the paper.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines


JEMDS has implemented a new policy called "Review-to-Publish". This policy requires authors to participate in the review process for other papers. By submitting a paper to JEMDS, the authors must support their peer authors with at least two reviews.

We understand that reviewing articles requires a significant investment of time and effort. Therefore, as a token of our gratitude, for your precious contribution, we offer a letter of acknowledgment and certificate for each completed review. We would like to encourage you to include your affiliation with JEMDS in your professional portfolio or curriculum vitae.

Scientific Writing

  • Authors are therefore requested to submit the following:
    • A blinded manuscript with at least 3000 words that does not include the names or affiliations of the authors either in the text or on the title page. In the article text, self-identifying citations and references should be avoided.
    • A separate title page with the title, the names of all authors, their affiliations, and their contact details. This page needs to contain any acknowledgments, disclosures, or funding details.
  • The work described has never been published before, is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere, and has received the implicit or explicit approval of all co-authors and responsible authorities at the institute where the work was conducted. Should there be any demands for compensation, the publisher shall not be liable.
  • Furthermore, Authors are obliged to participate in the peer review process;
  • The authors confirm that they wrote the manuscript without AI software for text production, and manuscripts that use such tools will be rejected.
  • If it turns out that a manuscript has significant issues with its scientific content or that our publishing guidelines have been broken, the Team reserve the right to reject it even after it has been accepted.


When submitting their papers, authors who desire to include images, tables, or text passages that have already been published somewhere else must first get permission from the copyright owner(s) and provide proof of such authorization.


The provision of all relevant editable source files by authors is required. If specific source files are not submitted, the review and production processes can be delayed needlessly.

After Acceptance

Upon acceptance of the article, the author will receive an email where they can download the Copyright Forms and whether they wish to order offprints.

Once the Copyright Forms and Offprints order has been received, your article will be processed and you will receive the proof.

Article Processing Charges

Authors pay a one-time 50USD Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review administration and management, professional production of articles in PDF and other formats, and dissemination of published papers in various venues addition to other publishing functions.

Authorship principles

These guidelines describe authorship principles and good authorship practices to which prospective authors should adhere to.


The Journal and Publisher imply that all authors approved of the paper's substance, provided their explicit approval to its submission, and gained permission from the appropriate individuals at the institute or organization where the research was conducted before the work was submitted.

Authorship is not required for all contributions, according to the Publisher. It is advised that authors follow the authorship standards that apply to their particular field of study. In the lack of explicit recommendations, it is advised to follow these rules:

All authors whose names appear on the submission

  • made significant contributions to the work's conception or design, the collection, analysis, or interpretation of data, the creation of new software used in the work, or any of these;
  • drafted the piece of work or critically reviewed it for significant intellectual content;
  • authorized the published version; and
  • agree to accept responsibility for all facets of the work in order to guarantee that any concerns about the accuracy or integrity of any component of the work are duly examined and addressed.

Disclosures and declarations

All authors are asked to provide information on funding sources, financial and non-financial interests, study-specific ethics committee permission for research involving people and/or animals, informed consent if participants were human, and an animal welfare statement if participants were animals (as appropriate).

The article's scope as well as the Journal's scope have a role in determining whether such material should be published. All authors are responsible for including the proper disclosures and statements when submitting work for publication that may have an impact on the public health or general welfare.

Data transparency

It is required of all authors to ensure that all data, materials, software, and custom code support their published claims and adhere to industry standards.

Corresponding Author

As the designated Corresponding Author, he/she speaks and acts on behalf of the other co-authors to ensure that concerns about the correctness or reliability of any aspect of the work are properly handled.

The Corresponding Author is responsible for the following requirements:

  • confirming that the manuscript's submission has been approved by all stated authors, including the names and order of authors;
  • coordinating all pre- and post-publication correspondence between the Journal and each co-author;
  • ensuring that the appropriate disclosures, declarations, and data openness statements from each author are included in the paper.

A Contact or Submitting Author may be given the responsibility of handling all correspondence between the Journal and all co-authors during submission and proofing. In this situation, please make sure the manuscript clearly identifies the Corresponding Author..


The institution where the majority of each author's work was completed should be listed as their principal affiliation. The author's current address may also be mentioned if they have since moved. Addresses won't be modified or updated once the article is published.

Changes to authorship

It is strongly encouraged for authors to double-check the correct author group, the Corresponding Author, and the author order before submitting their work. After a paper has been accepted, modifications to the authorship by adding or removing authors, changing the corresponding author, changing the order of the authors, etc. are not allowed.

Deceased or incapacitated authors

If the co-authors feel it is appropriate to include the author after the co-author passes away or becomes incapacitated during the writing, submission, or peer-review process, they should get permission from a (legal) representative, who could be a close relative.

Authorship issues or disputes

Unless express permission has been granted to share information, authors should treat all correspondence with the Journal as confidential, including communications with the Editor-in-Chief, Editors, and reviewers' reports.

Significant material modifications, such as new findings, corrected values, title changes, and author changes, are not permitted without the Editor's consent.

Regular Article

The majority of journal manuscripts are of this sort, which is used to publish comprehensive summaries of research results. Comprehensive sections of the Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion are included.

Review Article
