Editorial Policies

Open Access Policy

The JEI provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Publication Frequency

Regular issues are published at least semi-annually. Additionally, the JEI publishes a variety of manuscript types on an “open submission” basis; if accepted, these manuscripts will be published independent of a regular issue. Those interested in contributing should submit their work to submissions@thejei.com.

Types of Submissions

See Types of Manuscripts Sought.

Peer Review Process

For Research Manuscripts Only
The JEI uses a blind peer-review process. The reviewer will not know the identity or location of the author(s), and the author(s) will receive reviewer’s comments without the reviewer’s identity or location. Authors are invited to submit names of appropriate reviewers, but the final choice of reviewers lies with the Editor. Authors are requested to submit an abstract not to exceed 300 words of their original work before submitting the full manuscript. Following careful consideration by the Editorial Board, a full manuscript may then be requested. Authors will be notified of the disposition of their manuscript as soon as possible. The goal of this journal is to have a decision to the author(s) within four (4) months of receipt of manuscript.
