Duplicate Publication

Manuscripts submitted to Emres journals must be original and not published or submitted for publication elsewhere. This rule applies to manuscripts submitted elsewhere while the contribution is under consideration in Emres journal.

Authors submitting a contribution to Emres journals who have related material under consideration or in press elsewhere should upload a clearly marked copy at the time of submission and draw the Editorial Board Members' attention to it in their cover letter. Authors must disclose any such information while their contributions are under consideration by Emres journals – for example, if they submit a related manuscript elsewhere that was not written at the time of the original submission to Emres journal.

If part of a contribution that an author wishes to submit to Emres journal has appeared or will appear elsewhere, the author must specify the details in the covering letter accompanying the submission. Consideration by Emres journal is possible if the main result, conclusion, or implications are not apparent from the other work.

Emres Publishers is happy to consider submissions containing material that has previously formed part of a PhD or other academic thesis which has been published according to the requirements of the institution awarding the qualification.

Emres Publishers allows and encourages prior publication on recognized community preprint servers for review by other scientists in the field before formal submission to a journal. The details of the preprint server concerned, and any accession numbers should be included in the cover letter accompanying submission of the manuscript to Emres journals. This policy does not extend to preprints available to the media or that are otherwise publicized outside the scientific community before or during the submission and consideration process at Emres Publishers.

Publishing work in conference proceedings is common in some research communities. We are happy to consider submissions containing material that has been published in a conference proceedings paper. However, the submission should provide a substantial extension of results, analysis, conclusions and/or implications over the conference proceedings paper. Authors must provide details of the conference proceedings paper with their submission including relevant citation in the submitted manuscript. Authors must obtain all necessary permissions to re-use previously published material and attribute appropriately.

Emres Publishers is happy to consider submissions containing material that has previously formed, and continues to form, part of an online scientific collaboration such as a wiki or blog, provided that the information has not been publicized outside the scientific community, and is not publicized until the publication date of the work in our journal. In case of any doubt, authors should seek advice from the Editorial Board Member handling their contribution.

If an author of a submission is re-using a figure or figures published elsewhere, or that is copyrighted, the author must provide documentation that the previous publisher or copyright holder has given permission for the figure to be re-published. Editorial Board Members of Emres journals consider all material in good faith that the publication has full permission to publish every part of the submitted material, including illustrations.
