Submitting a paper
Send your paper by e-mail to the Managing Editor,
(akundgen AT csusm DOT edu),
in either Postscript or PDF format.
(Do not send zip, tar, Word or TeX files.)
Please include the names of all authors as well as the title
of the paper in the body of the e-mail.
Your paper should include an abstract.
A paper submitted to E-JC must not have been previously published
or be under consideration for publication elsewhere; nor should it be
later submitted for publication elsewhere while E-JC is still
If receipt of your paper is not acknowledged within two weeks, please
write to the Managing Editor again.
If your paper is accepted for publication you will be required to
format it as explained below.
Our editorial process
The Managing Editor assigns your paper to one of the Editors-in-Chief.
If your paper appears potentially acceptable, the Editor-in-Chief
will send it to one or more referees.
In some cases, several rounds of refereeing may be required and
you may be asked to make changes.
This step can take from days
to months, depending on the referees.
If your paper still appears potentially acceptable when the refereeing
process is complete, the Editor-in-Chief will ask you
to provide a new edition on the basis of the reports, in the
format of the journal.
At this stage, source files in TeX or LaTeX will be required
and you should also send the
release form to avoid delays later. Note that we do not
require you to assign copyright to the journal.
The committee of all Editors-in-Chief will then consider your paper
and make a final decision on whether to accept it or not. This step
usually takes about two weeks.
If your paper is accepted and we have received a
release form it will be published.
You will not be specifically notified when it is published, though
you can choose to be
notified of all papers that we publish.
