Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • 1. Read the Aims and scope to gain an overview and assess if your manuscript is suitable for JEB.
  • 2. Make sure that issues about publication ethics, open access, copyright and disclaimer of rights, figure formats, data, and references format have been appropriately considered.
  • 3. Use the templates in English to prepare your manuscript.
  • 4. Ensure that all authors have approved the content of the submitted manuscript.
  • 5. One author who is authorized to be the corresponding author must have full contact details stated in the manuscript including E-mail address, mobile phone number, and full postal address.

Author Guidelines

The author who submits the manuscript (often as the corresponding author) takes responsibility for the manuscript during the editorial procedures. To submit the manuscript, the author accesses the website at, makes registration, and logs in to submit your paper. All co-authors can track the reception, review, edition... online through the e-mail address that you have used to register.

As JEB uses double-blind peer-review, which means the identities of the authors are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa. The author, therefore, is required to submit a short bio and a manuscript (in Microsoft Word according to the templates) as follows:

  • Short bio: This should include the author/coauthors’ names, affiliations, and a complete address, an email address, and a hand phone number for the corresponding author.
  • Blindedmanuscript: This is the manuscript without author details. It should not include any identifying information, such as the authors' names or affiliations.

The template of the English manuscripts can be downloaded here.

The author does not unnecessarily divide his research into multiple manuscripts related to one topic. The quality and impact of the research will be considered during the critical review process

Review article

The review article primarily summarizes the research findings of existing articles, thereby providing a reasoned assessment of the main themes, supporting arguments, and implications in the source literature.

Short Communications

Short Communications: Combination of providing information about a specific event, phenomenon or issue (information) and analyzing, evaluating, and commenting on it (commentary). The goal of this genre is to provide readers with necessary information about a specific issue, while helping them gain a deeper understanding of that issue through the author's analysis, observations, and comments.


An Erratum  is a correction of a published text. As a general rule, publishers issue an erratum for a production error (i.e., an error introduced during the publishing process) and a corrigendum for an author's error.
