Guide for authors:

General Notes

Manuscripts of papers intended for publication should be prepared according to the instruction and submitted through the electronic Journal system by understanding that they have not been published, submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere.

The authors will be asked to supply the title of the paper, abstract, keywords and JEL classification, and to suggest of the Editorial Board whose area lies closest to the subject.

The Journal will not consider more than two submissions or under review papers at the same time from a given author (including when the author is a co-author). Accepted papers which has not been published will be counted. Authors must note that, if they have received a ‘revise-and-resubmit’ verdict from the Editor on one paper, then that paper, for the Journal’s purposes, counts as still under consideration until the notified period for re-submission has run out. If an author wishes to submit a new paper after having received a ‘revise-and-resubmit’ verdict and before the re-submission period has passed, the earlier paper must be formally withdrawn before the newer one will be considered.

Every manuscript considered for publication is passed to referees for peer review, and then it is subject to final approval by the Editorial Board.

Authors need to upload their paper as word files. Author(s) are also asked to provide all accompanying files, according to the guidelines in preparation manuscript below. The submitted manuscripts must be in their final form, essential changes at the proof stage will be considered only exceptionally.The Editors cannot be held responsible for possible loss of the manuscript. Therefore the authors should keep a copy of all submitted files.
