2. Manuscript submission

2.1. All submissions to the CJE should be uploaded using JournalX). Before your submission, make sure your manuscript is anonymized for the purposes of peer review.

2.2. Your manuscript must not be under consideration for any other publication while it is being considered in CJE. Please read the Copyright carefully, or contact the Editorial Office if you have any queries.

2.3. All papers are pre-screened to ensure that only the most significant are sent for review. Please ensure that your manuscript satisfies the following points:

2.3.1. Originality: is the work scientifically rigorous, accurate and novel? Does the work contain significant additional material to that already published? Has its value been demonstrated?

2.3.2. Our policy is to reject manuscripts found to contain duplication of previously published work. For further information please see the Copyright.

2.3.3. Motivation: does the problem considered have a sound motivation? Does the paper clearly demonstrate the scientific interest of the results?

2.3.4. Referencing: has reference been made to the most recent and most appropriate work? Is the present work set in the context of the previous work?

2.3.5. Clarity: is the English clear and well written? Poorly written English may obscure the scientific merit of your paper. Are the ideas expressed clearly and concisely? Are the concepts understandable?

3. Manuscript presentation

3.1. Submission template: For our LaTeX Submission Template, please download the file here; the template contains specific information regarding the formatting and layout to CJE. Additional information regarding submissions can also be found in the following subsections.

3.2. Format: Papers should be typed in 9pt font size in Times New Roman. All pages should be numbered. All accepted papers will be edited into the CJE's house-style.

3.3. Title: The title should not be too long and must be refined and embody the innovations of the papers. Abbreviations should not be used in the title only if those are acknowledged in the field.

3.4. Abstract:This should be informative and suitable for direct inclusion in abstracting services as a self-contained article. It should not exceed 150 words. It should indicate the general scope and also state the main results obtained, methods used, the value of the work and the conclusions drawn. No figure numbers, table numbers, references or displayed mathematical expressions should be included.

3.5. Language, spelling and grammar:All papers must be written in UK English. If English is not your first language, you should ask an English-speaking colleague to proofread your paper. Papers that fail to meet basic standards of literacy are likely to be unsubmitted by the Editorial Office.

3.6. Figures and figure captions:

3.6.1. Figures will be reproduced exactly as supplied, with no redrawing or relabelling. It is therefore imperative that the supplied figures are of the highest possible quality. The preferred format is encapsulated postscript (.eps) for line figures and .tif for halftone figures with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch).

3.6.2. Each figure should be explicitly referred to in numerical order and should be embedded within the text at the appropriate point.

3.7. Tables: Tables should be referred to explicitly in the text. Tables should be referred to in numerical order.

3.8. Mathematics and equations

3.8.1. Vectors and matrices should be in bold italic and variables in italic.

3.8.2. When writing mathematics, avoid confusion between characters that could be mistaken for one another, e.g. the letter 'l' and the figure one.

3.8.3. Equations should be capable of fitting into a two-column print format.

3.8.4. If your paper contains superscripts or subscripts, take special care to ensure that the positioning of the characters is unambiguous.

3.8.5. Exponential expressions should be written using superscript notation, i.e. 5x103 not 5E03. A multiplication sign should be used, not a dot.

3.8.6. Refer to equations using round brackets, e.g. (1).

3.9. References: An average research paper should reference between 10 and 30 works, the bulk of which should be recently published (i.e. within the last 5 years) leading-edge articles in the field, preferably from top journals or conferences. You should compare your own findings to this recent research and demonstrate how your work improves on it in order to demonstrate that your work shows a significant advance over the state of the art — a pre-requisite for publication in CJE.

4. After acceptance

4.1. You will receive an email from the journal’s Editorial office with correction purposes after acceptance. Revised papers should be submitted in their source file format (.doc, docx or .tex files for text and .eps, jpeg or .tif files for figures) after your correction. If your paper has been prepared using LaTeX, please also upload a single .pdf file of the paper together with the LaTeX source file and the figures. Major revisions, e.g. rewriting of whole sections, or the addition of figures, are not permitted at this stage. Also changes with regards to authors or co-authors (additions or removal) cannot be made after the paper has been accepted.

4.2. Corrections should be indicated in list form by giving the precise location of each correction (page and line number) and emailed to the in-house Editor.

4.3. You will not be able to view the final proof, after your corrections have been submitted.

4.4. When all corrections have been made, we will send both the first author and corresponding author a payment notification for their paper.
