Our contributors are asked to make sure their submissions comply with rules governing the formatting. See Instructions for Authors . Although Economics and Organization of Enterprise can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to deliver a properly formatted electronic version of the article.
Overview of the Editorial Process Submission
Each manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter which should explicitly state that the authors have the authority to publish the work and that the manuscript (or one with substantially the same content, by any of the authors) has not been previously published in any language anywhere and that it is not under simultaneous consideration by another journal. All authors of the manuscript are responsible for its content; they must have agreed to its publication and have given the corresponding author the authority to act on their behalf in all matters pertaining to publication. The corresponding author is responsible for informing the coauthors of the manuscript status throughout the submission, review, and production process.
The covering letter should contain all important details about the submission such as:
- your full name (submitted by),
- the full title of your article,
- the short title,
- full list of authors,
- status of article: new, reviewed or accepted (with reference ID if reviewed or accepted),
- e-mail address and contact address,
- telephone/fax numbers,
- number of attached files,
- details of any previous or concurrent submission.
The Editor in Chief initially assesses the appropriateness of each submitted manuscript for publication. Manuscripts which fall outside the journal's scope or are substandard in respects of non-merit reasons (presentation, style, technical aspects) may be declined without a review. The Editor in Chief appoints an Editor with expertise in the relevant field, who is fully responsible for further handling the manuscript and an ultimate decision about its acceptance/rejection. The Editor initially evaluates the originality and potential impact of the work. Manuscripts deemed unsuitable (work incomplete, inconclusive, merely confirmatory, of insufficient originality, with scientific or methodological flaws) are returned to the author(s) without detailed review. Manuscripts that meet editorial criteria for content and minimum quality standard are rigorously vetted by external expert reviewers recruited by the Editor.
The reviewers make an objective, impartial evaluation of scientific merits of the manuscript. Reviewers operate under guidelines set forth in Guidelines for Economics and Organization of Enterprise Reviewers
We greatly appreciate the time and effort given by reviewers in evaluating papers for publication in our journal. Thanks to your contribution, Economics and Organization of Enterprise Quarterly Journal authors receive fast, fair and comprehensive review.
- our reviewers are kindly requested to deliver reports in 3-4 weeks
- research articles are reviewed by the professional reviewers
- we pay special attention to receive unbiased, fair opinions; special policies govern allocation of reviewers to articles
- whenever submission qualifies for publication but needs revision, reviewers are asked to give comprehensive opinion on necessary improvements
Peer review guidelines
Please read these guidelines carefully before you report on any article.
If you wish to support us as a reviewer, please contact the Editor in Chief at firstname.lastname@example.org
Reviewers are asked to comment on the following aspects of the submitted manuscripts:
- novelty and originality of the work;
- broad interest to the community of researchers;
- significance to the field, potential impact of the work, conceptual or methodological advances described;
- study design and clarity;
- substantial evidence supporting claims and conclusions;
- rigorous methodology
The primary criteria for judging the acceptability of a manuscript are its originality, scientific importance and interest to the community of researchers. This policy permits declination of a manuscript solely on the Editor's judgment that the studies reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the Journal. If a manuscript is believed to not meet the standards of the Journal or is otherwise lacking in scientific rigor or contains major deficiencies, the reviewers will attempt to provide constructive criticism to assist the authors in ultimately improving their work. If a manuscript is believed to be potentially acceptable for publication but needs to be improved, it is invited for reconsideration with the expectation that the authors will fully address the reviewer’s suggestions.
Once all reviews have been received and considered by the Editor, a decision letter to the author is drafted. There are several types of decisions possible:
- Accept without revision
- Minor revision
- Major revision
Manuscripts not invited for resubmission will not be reconsidered. When revision of a manuscript is requested, authors must deliver the modified version within 60 days; additional time for resubmission must be requested in advance. When needed, further 14 days are given to authors. If these deadlines are not met, the manuscript will be treated as a new submission. Resubmitted manuscripts with major revisions may be sent for re-review before making a final decision. Authors who are asked to submit a revised version of their manuscript, should also provide a cover letter describing in detail how they have followed all suggestions for its improvement and addressing all points of concern raised by the referees.
Final decision is made by the Editor, and in any cases of conflict, by the Editor-in-Chief.
Transfer of Copyright Agreement
Once the paper is accepted, authors are assumed to have transferred the copyright of the paper to the publisher, Versita . A properly completed Transfer of Copyright Agreement , signed by the Corresponding Author on behalf of all the authors, must be provided for each submitted manuscript as a condition of publication. See Instructions for Authors for further details.
Conflicts of Interest
In order to encourage transparency without impeding publication, all authors, referees and editors must declare any association that poses a conflict of interest in connection with the manuscript. There should be no contractual relations or proprietary considerations that would affect the publication of information contained in a submitted manuscript. A competing interest for a scholarly journal is anything that interferes with, or could reasonably be perceived as interfering with, the full and objective presentation, review, or publication of research findings, or of articles that comment on or review research findings. Potential conflicts of interest exist when an author, editor or reviewer has financial, personal or professional interests in a publication that might influence their scientific judgment.
Examples of such conflicts include, but are not limited to:
- Financial conflicts: stock ownership; patents; paid employment or consultancy; board membership; research grants; travel grants and honoraria for speaking or participation at meetings; gifts
- Personal conflicts: relationship with editors, editorial board members, or with possible reviewers who have had recent or ongoing collaborations with the authors, have commented on drafts of the manuscript, are in direct competition, have a history of dispute with the authors
- Professional conflicts: public associations with institutions or corporations whose products or services are related to the subject matter of the article; membership of a government advisory council/committee; relationship with organizations and funding bodies
Authors should declare whether they have any conflicts of interests that could have influenced the reporting of the experimental data or conclusions in their paper. Such a statement should list all potential interests or, if appropriate, should clearly state that there are none. The editors may decide not to publish papers when we believe the competing interests are such that they may have compromised the work or the analyses or interpretations presented. Upon submission of a manuscript, authors may suggest to exclude any specific editors or reviewers from the peer review of their article (see Instructions for Authors ). It is the responsibility of authors to disclose in the Acknowledgments section any funding sources for the project or other relationships that are relevant.
Editors should consider whether any of the above competing interests are relevant to them and the manuscript under consideration. Editor who believes that the conflict will preclude an impaired judgment should disclose to the Managing Editor the nature of the conflict and decline to handle the paper.
Reviewers should consider whether any of the above applies to them and declare any such competing interests. If they feel they cannot review a paper because of any competing interest, they should tell us. They should also declare any association with the authors of a paper.
Manuscripts ready for publication are promptly posted online. The manuscripts are considered to be ready for publication when the final proofreading has been performed by authors, and all concerns have been resolved. Authors should note that articles published online are complete and final and thus no changes can be made after online publication.
A PDF offprint of the online published article will be provided free of charge to the corresponding author, and may be viewed, printed, or stored, provided that it is for the author's own use. The file may be distributed subject to the Publisher's terms and conditions.
Publication of color images is free for the electronic version of the journal, but carries a page charge in the print edition. Please note that the journal is published primarily in an electronic format, and only on sufficient demand for printed version journal hard copies may be provided for institutional subscribers.
No changes can be made to articles after their online publication. If a published manuscript contains a significant error, the journal will publish an amendment or retraction note at the earliest possible date. All amendments should be as concise as possible, containing only material strictly relevant to the contribution being corrected. Readers wishing to draw the journal's attention to a significant published error should submit their comments as a "Letter to the Editor". Such letters will be carefully reviewed by unrelated and neutral referees.
Our policy is to allow the amendment, in the form of Errata, of the errors introduced during the production stage (for which the journal takes responsibility) and the errors introduced by authors (for which they take responsibility). Errata are generally not published for errors that do not significantly compromise the scientific accuracy or reproducibility of the original paper. The addition of new data is not permitted. Appropriateness of corrections will be judged by the Editor. All coauthors will be asked to agree, in writing, to publication of errata.
Retractions are reserved for major errors. Retractions are judged according to whether the main conclusion of the paper is seriously undermined as a result. Infringements of professional ethical codes will also result in an article being retracted. All coauthors will be asked to agree to a retraction.
In very rare circumstances, the Journal also reserves the right to remove articles from the online journal. This will only occur where the article is clearly defamatory, or infringes others' legal rights, or where the article is, or there is good reason to expect it will be, the subject of a court order, or where the article, if acted upon, might pose a serious health risk. In these circumstances, while the bibliographic information will be retained online, the text will be replaced with a page indicating that the article has been removed for legal reasons.
Transfer of Copyright Agreement
Submission of a manuscript indicates a tacit understanding that the paper is not actively under consideration for publication with other journals. Once the paper is accepted, authors are assumed to have transferred the copyright of the paper to the publisher, Versita.
After submission authors are asked to email a scanned copy of the signed original to the Editor in Chief of the journal.
