Manuscript Submission

Authors must submit their manuscripts electronically through online manuscript tracking systems (MTS) to the Editorial Office via http://www.ijmae.com/author. Submission must be done only by one of the authors of the manuscript unless it will not be accepted.  

Manuscript Types

Authors can submit their manuscripts in forms of Original Research, Review Article, Case Study, Conceptual Paper, Research Note, Book review, and Viewpoint.

Originality

English manuscripts must not previously published nor under the consideration for publication in any other journal or book, in whole or in part.

Manuscripts which have presented in a conference before submission can be considered for review providing that there is substantial change in whole body or results.

Translated Manuscripts which have been published previously in a journal which its language is not English can be submitted provided that prior approval has been granted by the first Publisher, and that full and prominent disclosure of its original source is given at the time of submission.

Peer Review

Manuscripts submitted to the journal will be evaluated by double blind peer review based on the Key Evaluation Criteria mentioned in Peer Review Process section of the journal website. The normal review process takes long about one to two months. However, it is possible for authors to apply for fast track review by sending their request to ijmae.editor@gmail.com.

Statement of Author Contributions

Each author’s role in the research participation must be mentioned clearly in Title Page File.

Changes to Authorship

Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor. To request such a change, the Editor must receive the following from the corresponding author: (a) the reason for the change in author list and (b) written confirmation via email from all authors that they agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. In the case of addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed. Only in exceptional circumstances will the Editor-in-Chief consider the addition, deletion or rearrangement of authors after the manuscript has been accepted. While the Editor-in-Chief considers the request, publication of the manuscript will be suspended.
