Submission and publishing charges

Submission

Your manuscript should be submitted online via JVE Journal Management System (JMS) https://manage.jvejournals.com.
Using the JMS requires an account. You can create a new account by following the ‘Create an account’ link that appears on the main login page. The signup process only takes a minute – we don’t need many details from you. Once you’ve created your account or signed in, you’re ready to submit a manuscript: Submit manuscript.

Your manuscript should be uploaded in Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF formats. Note that if your manuscript is accepted for publication, the manuscript will be reprocessed by JVE team. But to start with, manuscript format should conform the Paper Template.

Article processing charges

The publication costs of an article are paid from an author's research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges of 500 EUR.

Refund Policy

Once an article has been accepted for publication, any Article Processing Charges on the article become due. The submitting author assumes responsibility for the Article Processing Charges, and JVE International will not issue refunds of any kind.

Review Process

All manuscripts will be assigned to at least two qualified reviewers through 7 steps described below. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors within 6-12 weeks.

On receiving an article, the Editorial office will pre-screen your manuscript in 1 week. The Editor in charge of the manuscript will check whether the manuscript is valid, does fall into the scope of the Journal, the presentation language is fluent, and the contribution to the state of the art is clear.

Following is a formal review process accomplished by external anonymous reviewers. Please note that the final decision on the acceptance / rejection of your manuscript is upon the Editor-in-Chief or one of the Associate Editors.

  1. Manuscript Submission – A manuscript code is assigned to every submission – authors are urged to use this code for any further communication regarding this manuscript. The manuscript is assigned to one of the Associated Editors (members of the Editorial Board of the Journal).
  2. Pre-reviewing (Editorial Office) – Initial Screening of the Manuscript – the Manuscript can be rejected or forwarded to the peer review process at this stage. A Reject decision can be immediately reached if the anti-plagiarism software does show a non-satisfactory score (over 5 %).
  3. Peer Review – External Anonymous Reviewers are assigned (if the manuscript is not rejected up to this point).
  4. Reviewer’s reports are collected by at the Editorial Office of the Journal. The Associated Editor is either rejecting the Manuscript – or requesting a revision from the authors based on the Reviewers’ comments (Minor, Major Revision requests or the Reject recommendation).
  5. Authors return their revised manuscript to the Editorial Office. The Associated Editor is taking a decision – Accept, the Second Round of Revision, or Reject – the decision is communicated to the Authors. The process is iterated to the point No. 2 if an additional revision is requested by the reviewers.
  6. Authors are allowed to perform two rounds of revisions. If Reviewers are not convinced by the arguments of authors after the second round of revisions – the manuscript is automatically rejected. In case the two assigned reviewers do have conflicting recommendations, a judge reviser (usually selected from the members of the Editorial Board of the Journal) is invited to give a final recommendation.
  7. The final decision is communicated to the Authors.

Conditions of Acceptance

Each article submitted to JVE will be accepted or rejected according to the originality, contribution to the state of the art in the field, the fitness to the scope of the Journal, quality of content, and presentation of the submitted manuscript.

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

For all parties involved in the process of publishing (the author, the journal editor(s), peer reviewers and the publisher) it is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior. The ethics statements for our journal are based on Code of Conduct and Best-Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (Committee on Publication Ethics, 2011).

Duties of the Editors-in-Chief and the Associate Editor

Fair play

Submitted manuscripts are evaluated for their intellectual and scientific content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Confidentiality

The Editor-in-Chief, the handling Associated Editor responsible for the submitted manuscript and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an Editor's own research without the explicit written consent of the author(s).

Publication decisions

The Editor-in-Chief of the journal or the handling Associate Editor is responsible for deciding which of the submitted articles should be published. The Editor-in-Chief and the handling Associate Editor may be guided by the policies of the journal's Editorial Board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The Editor-in-Chief may confer with the handling Associate Editor, other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Responsibilities of peer reviewers

Contribution to editorial decisions

Peer review assists the Editor-in-Chief and the handling Associate Editor in making editorial decisions and, through the editorial communication with the author, may also assist the author in improving the manuscript.

Promptness

Any invited referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its timely review will be impossible should immediately notify the Editor-in-Chief so that alternative reviewers can be contacted.

Confidentiality

Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except if authorized by the Editor-in-Chief.

Standards of objectivity

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inacceptable. Referees should express their views clearly with appropriate supporting arguments.

Acknowledgement of sources

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the Editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published data of which they have personal knowledge.

Disclosure and conflict of interest

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider evaluating manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the submitted manuscript.

Duties of authors

Reporting standards

Authors reporting results of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

Originality and Plagiarism

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication

An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Parallel submission of the same manuscript to more than one journal constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Acknowledgement of sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should also cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Authorship of a manuscript

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as coauthors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be named in an Acknowledgement section. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authorsv(according to the above definition) and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the author list of the manuscript, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

Data access and retention

Authors could be asked to provide the raw data of their study together with the paper for editorial review. In any event, authors should ensure accessibility of such data to other competent professionals for at least ten years after publication (preferably via an institutional or subject-based data repository or other data center), provided that the confidentiality of the participants can be protected and legal rights concerning proprietary data do not preclude their release.

Hazards and human or animal subjects

If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the authors must clearly identify these in the manuscript.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or their interpretation in the manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

Fundamental errors in published works

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal’s Editor-in-Chief or publisher and cooperate with them to either retract the paper or to publish an appropriate erratum. The publisher has the right to retract any published manuscript(s) with or without prior notification to the author(s).

Publisher’s confirmation

In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication or plagiarism the publisher, in close collaboration with the Editor-in-Chief, will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and to amend the article in question. This includes the prompt publication of an erratum or, in the most severe cases, the complete retraction of the affected work.

The Publisher and the Journal do not discriminate on the basis of age, color, religion, creed, disability, marital status, veteran status, national origin, race, gender, genetic predisposition or carrier status, or sexual orientation in its publishing programs, services and activities.
