Author Guidelines

The prospective authors must comply with the following manuscript guidelines when submitting the articles for publication in JEAR.

  1. Manuscripts submitted to JEAR should be original material and not under the consideration of any other journal nor should be available in any medium before the submission. Submitting the same paper to more than one journal concurrently is a violation of scholarly publication ethics. Any such manuscript will be rejected.

  3. The complete title of the paper, the names of the author(s), institutional affiliations, e-mails, and other identifying material should be typed on a separate sheet/the title page only to assure anonymity in the review process. The first text page of the article should have the complete title of the manuscript, but not the names of the author(s).
  4. The length of manuscripts should be not more than 5000 words.
  5. All manuscripts should be sent with an abstract of 150–200 words and 4 to 5 The abstract should be placed preceding the paper.

  17. Use endnotes as sparingly as possible. Number them with Arabic numerals starting with 1 and continuing through the article; for example: “(see Note 1).” Do not use endnotes.
  18. Figures must be provided as production-ready. Acceptable electronic formats for figures or other art are TIFF, EPS, Word, or Excel.
