Guidelines for Authors of Journal Articles

An author submitting an article for consideration for publication to any of the JAMES NICHOLAS JOURNALS can greatly speed up the processing and refereeing of the article and secure a quick response from the Editor as to its acceptance or non-acceptance for publication by adhering to the following Guidelines for Authors.

Articles are only considered for publication on the understanding that they have not been published and are not simultaneously under consideration elsewhere. Manuscripts are therefore accepted for consideration on the understanding that they report unpublished work not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

The article should be addressed to to the Editor, (name of journal) James Nicholas Publishers, PO Box 244, Albert Park, Vic. Australia, 3206.

The Refereeing Process

Articles chosen for publication in JAMES NICHOLAS PUBLISHERS journals are refereed by the double blind peer review process. Each copy of the manuscript should only identify the author/s on a separate cover page bearing the title, author’s name, full mailing address and institutional affiliation. A brief biographical note (2-4 lines) which includes previous publications and current research interests should be included on this separate page. Future issues of the journals (from 1997) will include brief NOTES ON THE CONTRIBUTORS at the end of each issue. Manuscripts are reviewed by the Editor and other members of the editorial panel and by invited reviewers with a special competence in the area represented by the manuscript. After completion of the review process, the Editor lets the contributor know in writing by mail whether the article is accepted for publication. Revisions may be suggested at this stage. The time between initial submission and appearance in print of accepted manuscripts ranges from 3 to months.
