Peer Review Process

Papers submitted to the journal will be peer-reviewed by at least one expert reviewer. The main criteria for acceptance are the novelty and scientific content of the submitted manuscript. Reviewers are normally expected to report within two weeks they accept the request for review.

 

Publication Frequency

The journal will publish articles as soon as they are available on a volume and year basis.

 

Open Access Policy

The journal is fully open access. This means that anybody is free to read papers published by this journal without the need to register with the journal.

 

Journal Impact Factor

First introduced by The Institute for Scientific InformationĀ® (ISI) in the 1960s, the impact factors of journals indexed by Thomson Reuters (formerly known as ISI) have been published annually in the Journal Citation ReportsĀ® since 1975. Being a tool for quantitative ranking, evaluating, categorizing and comparing journals, the impact factor measures the frequency with which the average paper in a journal has been cited in a particular year or period. It is calculated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in the journal during the previous two years (source: Thomson Reuters). For more details about the impact factor, please see http://thomsonreuters.com/products_services/science/free/essays/impact_factor/. Thomson Reuters has recently released its 2011 Journal Citation Report and JEOS:RP achieved an impact factor of 1.019 - which is a substantial increase from the value of 0.787 in 2009.
