JOURNAL POLICIES

There are no article submission and processing charges (APC) for publishing paper in this international journal. International Journal of Economic and Environmental Geology (IJEEG) permits the reuse of the published content.

Open Access: Accepted articles can be published online for free open access. Open access publishing provides maximum dissemination of the article to the largest audience.

Editorial Policies:Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript. The corresponding author is required to submit a filled in Copyright form along with the manuscript (at galley proof stage), on behalf of all the co-authors (if any). The author(s) will confirm that the manuscript (or any part of it) has not been published previously or is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Peer Review: IJEEG follows the single blind peer-review process for submission of all manuscripts. All submitted papers are subjected to an extensive peer review in consultation with members of the journal’s editorial board and independent external referees (usually three reviewers). All manuscripts are assessed rapidly and the decision based on all the peer reviewers' comments, taken by the journal’s Chief Editor, is then sent to the author(s).

Copy editing and Proofs:Manuscripts should be written in good English and coherence should be maintained throughout the text.

Plagiarism Prevention: IJEEG uses the Turnitin software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in the submitted manuscripts. It generates a similarity report, highlighting the percentage of overlap between the submitted manuscript and the published article. IJEEG allows an overall similarity of 19% for a manuscript to be considered for publication.
