IJESD had implemented online submission system. With the online journal management system that we are using, you will be able to track its progress through the editorial process. To submit your manuscript, register and log in to the submission system. When registering, please check your email to activate your account, and check your junk box in case the activate link was blocked. The submitting author, who is generally the corresponding author, is responsible for the manuscript during the submission and peer-review process. The submitting author must ensure that all eligible co-authors have been included in the author list (read the criteria to qualify for authorship) and that they have all read and approved the submitted version of the manuscript. All co-authors can see the manuscript details in the submission system, if they register and log in using the e-mail address provided during manuscript submission.

All submitted articles should report original, previously unpublished research results, experimental or theoretical. Articles submitted to the IJESD should meet these criteria and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should follow the style of the  IJESD and are subject to both review and editing.

Detailed instructions on preparing papers for submission can be found in the Template Paper and Submission Confirmation Form.

About Paper Review

All published journal papers are refereed by the international competent researchers and scientists. Therefore, a full double - blind international refereeing process is used in which:
Papers are sent to reviewers for their peer review process.
The reviewers' recommendations determine whether a paper will be accepted / accepted subject to change / subject to resubmission with significant changes / rejected.
 
For papers which require changes, the same reviewers will be used to ensure that the quality of the revised paper is acceptable.
 
All papers are refereed, and the Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to refuse any typescript, whether on invitation or otherwise, and to make suggestions and/or modifications before publication.
 
For more details about peer-review, please refer to Editorial Process.
