Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor it is currently considered for publication in any other medium.
  • The authors have submitted a single file which is a word document (doc or docx file format).
  • The author has read the terms and conditions regarding our Publication Fee right before submitting and fully accepts them.
  • The manuscript adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines and the author has followed the ETASR live template to format the manuscript.
  • The authors accept that during the copyediting stage, the journal's team may perform excessive changes on the submitted version. Even though the copyedited version will be sent to the corresponding author for proofreading and all author's comments/suggestions will be considered, all authors accept that the final decisions regarding the final version will be taken by the journal's editorial team.
  • The authors fully understand and accept the journal's privacy policies.
  • The authors have included at least three references from this journal in the article's reference list in order to justify the relevance of the article to this journal.
  • The article does not contain copyright images taken from other sources.

Author Guidelines

  • Only registered users can submit manuscripts to ETASR. 
  • To submit a paper follow the "Make New Submission" link at the top of this page or the "Make a submission" button in the right part of the page.
  • We only accept submissions in doc/docx file format. 
  • Each submissions should include one (1) word file. Do not submit multiple files
  • Make sure that the author list reflects substantial contribution and accountabillity of authors to the submitted manuscript. Those who contributed to the work but do not qualify for authorship should be listed in the acknowledgments. Recheck your author list before submitting. Changes in the author list may not be permitted at a latter stage.
  • We do not offer file conversion services or pre-review manuscript formatting services, as this would ultimately mean that we would have to charge a processing fee. Simple and detailed formatting instructions are included in our template. However, if you need additional help with formatting or with file conversion (e.g. from latex to word),  there are several third-party editing services that should be able to help. We can especially recommend Pefcor.
  • The standard manuscript length is six pages. However there is no page limit for papers submitted to ETASR.
  • Manuscript should be written in English and papers are generally consisted of title, author affiliation, abstract, keywords, introduction, body, conclusions and references. A paper may also include appendixes and an acknowledgement. The Abstract should be limited to 100-250 words and should concisely state the content of the paper.
  • Authors must use SI units and internationally recognized terminology and symbols.
  • A double column format is used. The font used is Times New Roman and a text size of  "10" is used for the main text body (see template for details). 
  • All graphics and figures in good quality should be inserted directly in the body of the paper. Large figures can span both columns. Color figures and pictures are accepted provided that they are of good quality.
  • Use only the reference number within brackets to cite references in the text. References should be listed under the "References" section in the order they appear in the text.
  • An Author Profile section located at the end of the manuscript is optional but welcomed
  • In general: do not use figures taken from elsewhere (except if they are free to use, see next point). Giving a citation does NOT mean that you can use a figure. 
  • Only third-party figures that are free to use by the copyright owner can be included in a manuscript. In that case, you should make sure that you follow the conditions set by the copyright owner. For example, if you wish to use a Google Earth/Google maps images, then you will have to follow the instructions set by Google here. As clearly stated: "Only including “Google” or the Google logo is not proper attribution when there are third-party data providers cited with the imagery." 
  • If the unauthorized use of a third-party image in a published manuscript is discovered, then  we will initiate an investigation that most probably will result to a retraction.
  • Please download and follow our live template to format your manuscript. 
  • All instructions and styles are included in the template in order to help authors to achieve fast and easy formating.
  • If you experience any problems during the submission through our page (e.g. upload time-out in case of large files) please contact the editor here.
  • For references:
  • Use the “ETASR reference” style to format the references section. The template will number citations consecutively within brackets.
  • Make sure that you have included enough recent references to place your work in context amongst recent research.
  • Make sure that you have included at least three references from ETASR to justify the relevance of your paper to this journal.
  • Use the reference number within brackets to cite a reference in the text.
  • Follow the guidelines in our template for correct styling.
