Information for Authors of Journal Articles


Any submission to a journal must be sent directly to the journal in question. Please consult the webpage of the relevant journal for submission instructions, guidelines, and contact information of the journal's editors.

Online submission

For a growing number of our journals we offer the possibility of submitting articles via "Editorial Manager", an online submission and review system where authors can submit manuscripts and track their progress. If the journal that you would like to submit to uses EM, instructions about this can be found on the Submission page for the journal in question.
