Instructions for authors and reviewers

 

EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF GEOGRAPHY
 
 
SUBMISSION OF CONTRIBUTIONS
  • Contributions should be submitted electronically (All authors must register before login in).  

     

  • Uploaded manuscripts should be in MicroSoft Word Format (.DOC). Filenames should be written using the english keyboard letters and numbers only. If file size exceeds 10MB, we recommend sending it in compressed format (.ZIP or .RAR). 

     

  • Authors might be asked to send additional material as separate files (GIF, MPEG, JPEG, etc). 

     

  • Authors are strongly advised to consider citing relevant to their work papers published in the European Journal of Geography in order to increase its Impact Factor (IF). Citations are a well-established measure of research impact. To a relatively new scientific journal like ours this is of major importance and will eventually have added value for both the recognition and validation of their research by others.

     

  • After the successful submission of a manuscript authors receive an automated confirmation e-mail.

     

  • For additional guidance on any matters not specifically addressed in the below listed instructions and examples, authors should refer to our sample manuscript or consult the Associate Editor Dr. Yorgos N. Photis (yphotis@gmail.com). 

 

THE REVIEWING PROCESS
 
Articles submitted to the journal are subject to the following review procedure:
 
  • Review by the editorial panel in terms of general suitability for the journal. 
  • Selected articles are then subject to a double blind review process. 
  • Articles are then accepted, revised or rejected on the basis of the recommendations of reviewers. 
  • Revised articles are reviewed by the editor, although in some cases they may be referred back to the original reviewer.  
COPYRIGHT
 
In accordance with copyright law, the manuscript must be previously unpublished and not duplicate substantial portions of previously published material. Permission to reproduce copyright material must be obtained by the authors before submission and any acknowledgments should be included in the submission. Acknowledgment of source and copyright should be given in cases where photographs, data and media are reproduced.
 
The editorial policy is the responsibility of the Editorial Panel, but the Authors’ opinions should be regarded as their own.
 
ISSUES OF LANGUAGE
 
The authors are responsible for presenting the article and the abstract in good English. They should ask native speakers or colleagues to check their article in this perspective. In choosing their terminology they should keep in mind their international audience. They should also consider carefully specialised topics and terms to prevent loosing the attention of their audience. Finally, authors are responsible for proof-reading the original article (including the abstract in the other language). 
 
STRUCTURE / FORMAT OF THE ARTICLE
 
For full length articles, the manuscript word count must be between 4500 - 7000 words. This includes tables, illustrations, references, etc. The authors should format their manuscript as follows:

The following format is required for author name(s): first name, extra initials and last name. After the name of each author the e-mail address (if available) and the contact address (including the URL of the homepage of their organisation/institution) should be added.
 
Example: Karl R. Attard [Attard @university.ac.nk], Name of University, School of Sciences and Social Sciences, address. [Web site]
 
The title, author(s), affiliation(s), and address(es) should be on a separate cover page. All correspondence will be addressed to the first named author, unless otherwise instructed.
 
Abstract:

Additional notes:
The authors must be sure that the “reader” of their article possesses the necessary drivers to look or run uncommon data-types.

They should put this information [between brackets]; e.g., FTP-sites, an URL, e-mail addresses to contact suppliers, etc.
 
Whenever they refer to other types of information that they provide as an additional file, they should put this information between brackets.
