Submission of Manuscripts
When you have submitted your article you will receive an acknowledgement. All articles submitted for publication in the EWMA Journal are reviewed before publication. The review process will take approximately 8 weeks. When the review is complete, you will receive an email regarding the suitability of your article for publication in the journal and any suggestions for amendments. A final copy of the article, including any changes recommended by the editor and/or the reviewers, should then be submitted online.
The Editor requires that with each submission, the authors provide written assurance that the paper has not been previously published and that no other submission or publication will be made. Abstracts of oral or poster presentation are not considered to constitute prior publication. Copyright of all papers is vested in EWMA.
Authors may suggest the names of two reviewers for the manuscript. However, final selection of the referees will be determined by the Editor.
Abstracts for oral or poster presentations are not considered prior publication.
All manuscripts must be accompanied by a letter to the Editor with the following statement signed (electronically or scanned signature) by all authors; "The undersigned authors transfer all copyright ownership of the manuscript [insert name of article here] to EWMA in the event the work is published. The undersigned author(s) warrant that the article is original, does not infringe upon any copyright or other proprietary right of any third party, is not under consideration by another journal, and has not been previously published."
Copyright assignment is a condition of publication and papers will not be published unless copyright has been assigned.
It is the responsibility of the authors to disclose to the Editor any significant financial interests they may have in products mentioned in their manuscript. This information will be deemed confidential and will only be disclosed to manuscript reviewers if, in the opinion of the Editor, the information is directly pertinent for an informed review.
