Instructions for Guest Editors
EuJAP continuously seeks Guest Editors for special issues. Topics of special issue are open. Prospective Guest Editor(s) may send a proposal for special issue to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special issues are usually composed of 5 to 10 papers plus an editorial introduction. The Guest Editor(s) can solicit papers either by directly asking potential authors to contribute or by sending public calls for papers (or by combining both approaches). However, it is preferred that Guest Editor(s) prior to the official call for papers obtain a commitment from a couple of established researchers to provide their papers in order to secure the feasibility and attractiveness of the special issue. Our guidelines for authors can be read here. In any case, it is the duty of Guest Editor(s) to handle and secure the quality of the review process. Our policy is double blind review. However, regarding special issues, we allow editors and co-editors to serve as reviewers and provide comments on submissions themselves.
Our guidelines for reviewers can be read at this link.
Guest Editors are kindly asked to save all of the reviewer comments (including the names of reviewers) and at the end of the editorial process, along with the particular submissions they have decided to accept or reject, send them to our official email email@example.com or to the Editor-in-Chief.
If Guest Editor(s) also contribute a paper to the special issue, they are encouraged to send them to the Editor-in-Chief who will secure external referees to review them.
