Peer Review Process

 

  • Receiving the paper in the required format and using the imposed technical instructions for authors. The full paper manuscript will be submitted electronically in Word 2010/2013 format using the on-line registration or the board@jeeeccs.net email address. The papers will be returned to the authors for correction if they don't follow the presented instructions. The journal executive board reserves the right not to publish the non-corresponding materials.
  • Within maximum 15 days one of the chef editors will nominate the associate editor for peer reviewing using at least two referees; in cases of uncertainty, the associate editor will request more reviews to take the final decision upon publication.
  • The referees will use a specific reviewing template; the paper will receive a score and may be recommended for:

 

0, 1

Reject - poor paper (comments from reviewers are obligatory)

2

Weak Reject - can be published only if major revisions and improvements are made (comments should be included); send the paper to the authors, with comments;

3

Weak Accept - publish as such or send for improvements and revision (comments should be included);

4

Accept – publish as a good paper; with minor revisions.

5

Strong Accept – publish as an excellent paper; without revisions.

 

If necessary, the required changes will be transmitted to authors; the changes may be accepted totally or partially by the author(s); in the latter case, the referees' conditions may be challenged by the author(s) and the paper submitted for a second reviewing.
         The date of publishing acceptance will be communicated to author(s) and printed on the published paper. The final print-ready format as requested by the editors has to be transmitted by authors within 30 days from acceptance. The special cases have to be adjusted according to the editors' demands.

The whole responsibility for the papers contents regarding experimental results and their interpretation, accuracy computation as well as language incumbent to the authors only. The authors must respect the Copyright laws.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

 

Editorial policy

Editorial Policy

The Journal is intended to serve those occupationally involved in subjects it covers and through the publication of timely and reliable information in several formats.

 

Technical papers describe and interpret the results of original investigations. They are significant in their findings and increase the body of knowledge upon which decision-making and policy are based. Of particular interest are topics that are relevant to science and technology issues and problems emerging from contemporary directions in regulatory policy-making.

 

Notebook papers offer a forum for rapid disclosure of new technical or administrative studies, or for significant comment on previously published papers. Publication of a Notebook paper will not preclude later consideration of a technical paper on the subject. If the Notebook paper is a comment on a previously published paper, the Notebook paper will be published with a reply from the author(s) of the previously published paper.

 

Review papers synthesize existing research and define problems to be addressed by future research. Reviews should be critical in nature while noting the strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of current knowledge. 

 

All papers submitted for consideration in the Journal are subject to a minimum of two external peer reviews.

 

Ethics

 

As a condition of publication, all authors must transfer copyright to the Journal. Manuscripts submitted under multiple authorship are reviewed on the assumption that all listed authors concur in the submission and that the final version has been seen and approved by all authors.

 

Allegations of fraud or misconduct - be they violations of the standard norms for publishing original research, publication without approval of all authors, plagiarism, republication of data used previously without acknowledgement, or inappropriate graphics manipulation - will be investigated thoroughly. If, after due process involving the Associate Editor, a paper is found to contain ethical violations, it will be rejected or withdrawn.

 

Authors of papers published in the Journal are obligated to honor any reasonable request by qualified investigators for unique propagative materials that are described in the paper. If computer software programs are developed and used in submitted manuscripts, the programs must be made available to the reviewer upon request. The source code or the program must be made available, either commercially or in downloadable form from the authors, if the manuscript is accepted for publication. The Associate Editors may deny further publication rights in the journal to authors unwilling to abide by these principles.

 

Publication Policy

 

Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication in a Journal elsewhere; and that its publication has been approved by all coauthors and the responsible authorities at the institute where the work was conducted. Submission also implies that the authors have already obtained all necessary permissions for the inclusion of copyrighted materials, such as figures and tables from other publications. Previously published work will not be considered for publication.

 

Page Proofs

 

Before a manuscript is published, the corresponding or primary author will be required to review and approve page proofs of the manuscript. (Authors will be contacted by e-mail when their proofs are available in PDF format for downloading and printing.) Authors are responsible for checking their proofs for accuracy and for clearly marking any corrections on the proofs. Please note that only major errors can be corrected at the page proof stage. The Journal team assumes no responsibility for data or text errors printed in the Journal if authors do not correct such errors on their proofs. Failure to return proofs promptly, as outlined in instructions provided with the proofs, may delay publication of the manuscript.

 

Copyright Requirements

 

If a manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors must agree to reassign the copyright of that manuscript to the Journal. This allows the Association to perform all standard supplementary functions of publishing inherent to information dissemination, including selling or redistributing reprints, granting to third parties permission for reproducing or reprinting articles, handling requests from abstracting and information centers, and publishing articles online. Note: It is the authors' responsibility to obtain all necessary permissions for the inclusion of copyrighted materials, such as figures and tables from other publications, prior to submitting a manuscript for consideration.

 

Page Charges and Reprints

 

Papers published in the Journal are free of charges. Authors interested in hardcopy prints may order them by contacting the Journal's main office at: board@jeeeccs.net 


Agreement for promoting the journals JEEEECCS and IJTPE

The JEEECCS Journal is sustained by the JEEECCS Universities’ Association (four universities from Romania: University of Pitesti, “Valahia” University of Targoviste, Petroleum-Gas University of Ploiesti, and “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu) and the International Journal on “Technical and Physical Problems of Engineering” IJTPE (http://www.iotpe.com/IJTPE) by the International Organization of IOTPE, and these journals are jointly promoted by the both parts based on an gentlemen agreement between the chairs.
