Thank you for your decision to submit your manuscript to JHEOR. Please use the following checklist to ensure your submission is processed correctly and without delay. Questions about the submission process may be sent to manuscripts. If submitting a manuscript for a particular special issue, please indicate so in your cover letter.
1. Instructions for Authors
Please read the instructions for authors regarding content, formatting and submission requirements prior to submitting to avoid delays or unnecessary rejections.
2. Cover letter, peer reviewers and editorial board selection
Your cover letter should explain why JHEOR should publish your manuscript, elaborate on issues relating to JHEOR editorial policies detailed in the instructions for authors, and declare any competing interests. Also remember to include the contact details (including email addresses) of at least one potential peer reviewer who is an expert in your field of study and can provide an objective assessment of the manuscript's quality. Any peer reviewers you suggest should not have recently published with any of the authors of your manuscript and should not be members of the same research institution. Finally, your manuscript title page should be part of the cover letter to facilitate the double-blind peer review process.
