For Submissions


ALJEH’s policy prohibits an author from submitting the same manuscript for concurrent consideration by two or more publications or from submitting any manuscript that has already been published either in whole or substantial part elsewhere. It also does not permit publication of a manuscript that has been published in full in Proceedings of conferences, seminars, and the like.

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out. Submissions that have previously been presented at conferences, or have previously appeared in other “non-journal” venues are also accepted (for example: blogs or posters).

ALJEH articles follow the IMRD (Introduction, Methods, Results, and, Discussion) format. Authors should check the Publication Guidelines before submission.
