The journal Dependence Modeling aims at providing a medium for exchanging results and ideas in the area of multivariate dependence modeling. It is an open access fully peer-reviewed journal providing the readers with free, instant, and permanent access to all content worldwide. Dependence Modeling is listed by Web of Science (Emerging Sources Citation Index), Scopus, MathSciNet and Zentralblatt Math.
For submissions we accept exclusively PDF files. The manuscripts must be prepared in one of the following formats: LaTeX, AMSTeX, AMSLaTeX. All submissions to DEMO must be made electronically via Editorial Manager - an online submission and peer review system at http://www.editorialmanager.com/depmod/.
First-time users must create an Author account to obtain a user ID and password required to enter the system. All manuscripts receive individual identification codes that should be used in any correspondence with regard to the publication process. For the authors already registered in Editorial Manager it is enough to enter their username, password and to log in as author ("Author Login" button). If you experience difficulties with the manuscript submission website, you can send the pdf of your article directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
PEER-REVIEW PROCESS The journal uses a closed single-blind peer review system (the names of the reviewers are hidden from the authors). Submitted manuscripts are reviewed by two or more experts. Reviewers are asked to recommend whether a manuscript should be accepted, revised or rejected. Although the journal uses the plagiarism detection system CrossCheck, reviewers should alert the editors if they suspect any issues relating to author misconduct such as plagiarism.
Reviewers are asked to provide detailed, constructive comments that will help both the editors make a decision on the publication and the author(s) to improve their manuscript. They should point out whether the work has serious flaws that preclude its publication, or whether additional experiments should be carried out or additional data should be collected to support the conclusions drawn.
If your article has been accepted for publication, before sending the final LaTeX/AMSTeX,/AMSLaTeX file of your paper the corresponding author should:
check and update the references where possible (preprint and working paper which have been accepted during the revision process) and make sure the bibliography is contained in the TeX/LaTeX file (i.e. without reference to any external .bib file). References should be listed alphabetically and Journal names should be written in abbreviated from according to Mathematical Reviews Serials Abbreviations, see http://www.ams.org/msnhtml/serials.pdf. For in-press references or preprint we suggest to indicate a web address where to download the paper or a DOI number if available. Provide the graphical elements accompanying the manuscript (figures, pictures, etc.) as separate files in .eps or .pdf format.
check that the paper includes abstract, keywords (separated by commas), the AMS Mathematics Subject Classification number(s) (http://www.ams.org/mathscinet/msc/) and (at least) the email address of the corresponding author.
put Acknowledgments as a separate section at the end of the manuscript
restrict the use of footnotes (when possible put them in the text).
make sure that your manuscript is clearly and grammatically written in English.
SUBMISSION OF REVISED ARTICLES
When a major revision of a manuscript is suggested, authors are expected to deliver the revised version of the manuscript within 3 months (1 month in the case a minor revision is suggested). Along with the major/minor revision the authors should also provide a point by point explanation of how the issued raised by the referees have been handled and a brief evaluation of each report received on the paper. The manuscript should be uploaded directly to the Editorial Manager as an answer to the Journal Editor's decision (and not as a new manuscript). If the above mentioned deadlines are not met, the manuscript will be treated as a new submission.
OPEN ACCESS LICENSE
Authors have to sign an Open Access License that is available on the webpage. We encourage the authors to send the signed license along with the manuscript. Please note, that no article will be published unless the Open Access License is signed.
