GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS
The submitted manuscripts or substantial parts of them should not have been previously published or submitted for publication somewhere else. The abbreviated version of the contents for presentation at a meeting is not regarded as a publication.
All authors ensure that they have furnished a substantial contribution to the paper and that they are in agreement with form and contents of the manuscript. Corresponding authors confirm that they hold the copyrights to their articles as well as to the text and illustrations attached therein in the authors´ contract. If material (e.g., illustrations or tables) is used from other sources, authors must submit a written statement from the holder(s) of the copyright(s) indicating they have obtained permission to publish this material in jomat. The authors of articles published by jomat grant jomat the right to store the articles in its databases for an unlimited period of time and to distribute and reproduce the articles electronically. The authors retain all remaining exploitation rights to their articles, subject to the condition that any further use of the articles shall make reference to their original publication in jomat ("originally published in JOMAT").
Authors should indicate, either in their cover letter or in the title page, whether the research reported in their paper was the result of a for-pay consulting relationship or if they or their employer has a financial interest in the topic of the paper which might constitute a conflict of interest.
In general, papers may be of any length but should be self-contained. Further, they should provide new findings or deal with new methods.
Supplementary material, such as data sets etc., should be submitted together with the manuscript.
Authors who would like to submit replications.
Authors should have in mind that, as soon as a paper is accepted as discussion paper, it will promptly be published (without any editorial changes).
Authors are asked to suggest potential reviewers. Ideally, these reviewers should be researchers who are not closely associated with the author (i.e., who are do not work at an affiliated institution and who have not collaborated significantly with the author on research). Should this not be the case, authors are requested to so indicate. All suggested reviewers should be able to offer fair and impartial reviews of the material being submitted. When a paper is accepted as a discussion paper, the editorial office of jomat sends the paper to these reviewers for comment.
There is no submission and publication fees or page charges.
Authors are asked to register as registered readers in order to be able to respond to comments submitted to the discussion platform for their paper.
After the discussion platform is closed, authors are free to submit a revised manuscript for publication in JOMAT. Authors who intend to do so should inform the editorial office.
Authors can post revised versions of their articles anytime in response to the public peer review.
