How to publish a paper with “Emethodology”:

1)      First, you should enter your article into ojs system (see the following link )

Your text should be saved as a Microsoft Word document and follow the APA citation guidelines. Do not include your name and surname to ensure anonymity, crucial for double-blind peer reviews.

2)      Then you need to save your META DATA into the ojs system. These include the following:

  • personal data

  • details related to your article

8)      Articles accepted for publication are given to language and technical editors.

9)      The Author is contacted by one of the editors to make necessary corrections.

10)   The Author should correct his/ her paper following the reviewers’ and editors’ comments. The time and scope of necessary corrections is agreed between the editor and the author.
