Author Guidelines

EARSeL eProceedings is an Open Access journal, i.e. manuscripts published in there may be read online and be downloaded at no charge by anyone who is interested in the subject. However, review process, language corrections as well as editing are not free of costs. Authors coming from EARSeL laboratories are entitled to publishing their articles without having to pay any fees. For non-EARSeL members a publishing fee of 50 Euros per printed page will be charged.

Manuscripts must be prepared according to the Author Guidelines in the Manuscript Template (150 kB rtf file). Please save the file on your computer and use it as a sample paper for manuscript preparation. A conversion to Microsoft WORD might be appropriate to reduce the file size if graphics with high resolution are included in your document.

There is no limit as to the number of pages and graphics. Inclusion of numerical data files or references to raw data archived at the author's institute via URL links which allow the readers to understand the published results are strongly encouraged.

Graphics, tables and equations should be embedded in the document according to the instructions given in the Manuscript Template. Graphics shall also be uploaded to the Manuscript Management System in separate image files. Please use the ZIP data compression utility if many image files are uploaded.

Please submit your contribution through the Manuscript Management System using the Login button to the left.


Publication Ethics

This journal's Publication Ethics particularly includes the following elements:

  • Submitted contributions must be original research papers or review articles, and manuscripts describing essentially the same research shall not be published in more than one journal or primary publication.
  • Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data, if practicable, and should retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.
  • If the authors have used the work and/or words of others, this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
  • When reproducing figures or using text elements from other publications in your manuscript, please provide proof that you have obtained the necessary copyright permission which must be sent to the Editor-in-Chief by separate e-mail when submitting the manuscript.
  • Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors.
  • When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, he/she is obliged to promptly notify the journal editor and cooperate with the editor to submit an Erratum. If the editor learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, the author will be requested to promptly correct the paper or provide evidence of the correctness of the original paper.

Authors should prepare their articles in accordance with the best practices and codes of conduct of relevant professional bodies. We refer to the Report on Best Practices for Ensuring Scientfic Integrity and Preventing Misconduct published on 28 June 2007 by the OECD Global Science Forum.
