Step 2: Paper Formatting Validity Confirmation

Submissions are accepted in English in electronic form in MS Word format exclusively via our submission system.

The author is responsible for scientific accuracy, originality, and the formal appropriateness of the article. An article that has already been published in another journal in any form (article, working paper, etc) cannot be published in the journal. Without the consent of the Editorial Board of the journal E&M Economics and Management, the submitted article will not be offered for publication by another publisher. The author confirms this fact to the editors when sending the article to the submission system.

The Editorial Board of the journal decides on the publication of the article and reserves the right to reject it. Published articles are available under the license CC BY-NC 4.0. The Editorial Board of the journal also reserves the right to include the article in a specific thematic section. We recommend using our Templatebe downloaded here

Only two levels of chapter numbering are allowed. It is necessary to follow the format described below:

If a source has a DOI identifier, it must be included in the list of references. We recommend utilizing citation managers like Zotero.
