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 400 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.

Masonry vaults strengthened with a GFRP reinforced mortar coating: evaluation of the resisting peak ground acceleration

Natalino Gattesco, Ingrid Boem

The reinforcement of existing masonry vaults against seismic actions is an extremely timing issue and it has already involved many researchers in experimental testing and numerical modelling. However, up to now, the results of the research have been expressed and compared in terms of load-displacement capacity curves. But the designers, in the practice, need to assess the resisting peak ground acceleration of the vault (PGA), so to compare it with the seismic demand. In the paper, a strategy to ...

A passive diffusion model of fluorescein derivatives in an in vitro human brain microvascular endothelial cell (HBMEC) monolayer

Jamelle M. Simmons, Yong Woo Lee, Luke Achenie

Eukaryotic cells have a protective plasma membrane, which restricts the free movement of molecules from the external environment to the internal environment. This study aims to computationally model the transport of fluorescein derivatives across the monolayer of human brain microvascular endothelial cells (HBMEC). The determination of plausible effective diffusion constants (Deff) will allow models to be built that could be useful beyond in vitro experimentation. Fluorescein-5-isothiocyanate (F ...

Numerical analysis and experiment on pressure of polished Z-tube with abrasive flow

Junye Li, Ningning Su, Wenqing Meng, Binyu Wang, Xinming Zhang

Aiming at the problem that the complex parts are difficult to process precisely, a flexible processing method, abrasive flow technology, is proposed. Based on the FLUENT software, a realizable k-ε model was adopted and a Z-tube was used as the research object for numerical analysis. Parameters such as turbulence intensity, turbulent kinetic energy, and flow field pressure under different inlet pressures were simulated and discussed. The simulation results show that with the increase of inlet pre ... Continue reading

New study on interactional effects of grouting pressure on the displacement of nailing bond

Pouyan Abbasi Maedeh, Wei Wu, Ali Ghanbari, Jia Lin, Marelianda Al Dianty, Kourosh Ghaffari Irdmoosa, Amir Shahraki Ghadimi

The maximum displacement in a soil nail bond system considering the pull-out, overburden load and grouting pressure effects has been evaluated. The Pull-out tests were carried out in five sites that located in Tehran, Iran. Moreover, additional pull-out test data from South Korea is considered. The displacement of the nailing system due to gravity and pressure grouting has been measured. Based on achieved data, four practical relationships between bound strength and pull-out displacements are de ... Continue reading

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.
