Author Guidelines

Open access policy
The journal does not charge any processing and submission fees for the articles. All its
published papers are openly accessed at the journal’s website and Google Scholar at no cost.

Peer review process
The manuscripts are submitted online or via JEI’s email address. The manuscripts are
received by the Editorial Assistant and sent to the Chief Editors to check if they are within
the ambits of the journal. Once a manuscript is approved by the Chief editors, the manuscript
is sent to two experts for review following the double-blind peer review mechanism of the

Reviewers are required to evaluate the quality of the manuscript and subsequently indicate
whether we should accept (with or without revisions) the manuscript or not. In a case where
the positions of the reviewers are not clear, a third reviewer is invited.
Reviewer reports are expected within four to eight weeks. Once the reports are ready, and if
need be, they are sent to the author/s who are advised to make the necessary adjustments.
Should adjustments be expected from the author/s, a document detailing their response/s to
each item of the report should accompany the resubmission.

Once accepted, and the changes suggested are attended to by the authors, the manuscript will
undergo professional language editing, followed by proofreading by authors, technical
preparation of the manuscript and subsequent publication on the website.

Turnitin (plagiarism)
All JEI submissions are checked for plagiarism using a standard software Turnitin. If
plagiarism is detected, the manuscript will be rejected.
