Submission Guidelines

Instructions for Authors

Manuscripts can be submitted to JEM at any time. The publication language of JEM is English. However, manuscripts to be submitted may take any language as their research subject. JEM accepts numerous types of submissions, each having different word limits. For example, manuscript under the research article category should typically run between 6,000 and 10,000 words (only body text). Indicated word limits do not include abstracts, references, tables, figure or table captions, footnotes, and endnotes.

JEM uses APA (7th ed.) as its style manual. Each manuscript is expected to have a title of maximum 15 words. The abstract should not exceed 250 words. Five keywords separated by semicolons should be provided. JEM encourages all corresponding authors to identify themselves using their ORCID when submitting a manuscript to JEM.

Submitting a manuscript to JEM implies that the work has not been simultaneously submitted to another journal, has not been published in another venue in a substantially similar form or with substantially similar content, and has been approved by the author (and all the co-authors, if any).

To submit your manuscript, email it to the Editor-in-Chief at with the subject heading “JEM Manuscript Submission” and indicate the submission category (i.e., research article, brief report, book/software/media review, correspondence, or interview) in your email message. The manuscript can be submitted as a Microsoft Word document (double-spaced) and should be anonymized, meaning that there should be no clear way for reviewers to identify you as the author(s). In a separate document, submit a title page that includes information about the names, contact emails, institutional affiliations, physical addresses, and ORCiDs of the author(s), and the title of the manuscript.

Instructions for Guest Editors

On occasion, JEM might devote an issue to a special topic that is compelling and of significant importance for the field. Special topic issues usually have both invited and solicited articles. The Editorial Advisory Board approves the proposed topics. Those interested in proposing a special topic issue can download our Guidelines for Special Issue Proposals.

The Editor-in-Chief makes a final decision to accept with minor or major revisions or reject the submission based on the reviewers’ advice and sends the reviewers’ notes to the authors.
