Author Guidelines

Preparing your material for publication

EA Journal is an open access journal that publishes original full-length research articles and invited reviews in the field of social and natural sciences. The authors can suggest up to three reviewer names during submission time. This innovative approach reduces significantly the publication time. It should be clearly noted that the manuscript can't be reviewed by any co-author, any family members of co-authors or anyone having conflict of interest with research topic.

Submissions must be accompanied by a cover letter from the principal/corresponding author, on behalf of all the co-authors to confirm that the manuscript (or any part of it) has not been previously published in any language anywhere and that it is not under simultaneous consideration or in press by another journal. The cover letter should clearly describe the questions addressed or hypotheses tested, the significance of the study, and how this contribution is of interest to a broad audience.


Manuscripts and cover letters should be submitted by e-mail to the Editorial Office

We get manuscripts written in clear, concise and grammatically correct English. The submission file is to be in Microsoft Word document format containing the full text, references, tables and figures. A template file can be downloaded from here.

The submitted manuscript should be between 7 and 20 pages consistent with the formatting requirements. The publication of any manuscript over 20 pages long is to be negotiated with the publisher. An author can have no more than two manuscripts published in the same volume.


Manuscripts should be arranged as follows:


Title page. Must contain the title of the article and the name(s) and address(es) of the author(s). The full postal address, Internet e-mail address, telephone and facsimile numbers of the author who will receive correspondence and check the proofs should be included.


Abstract. This part should not exceed 250 words with listing the main results and conclusions.


Key words. It's recommended from three to seven key words placed in alphabetical order.


Introduction. This section should include sufficient background information to set the work in context. The aims of the manuscript should be clearly stated.


Materials and methods. Provides sufficient details of the techniques employed to enable the work to be repeated.


Results and Discussion. Should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, tables and figures. Must underline the significance of the results and place them in the context of previous research.


References. Should be prepared according to the instructions given below.

In the text: References must be cited in the text mentioning the last name of the author and year within parentheses (e.g. Harper, 2000). In case of two authors, both should be mentioned. When three or more authors included, mention only the first author followed by et al (e.g. Harper et al., 2000). When two or more references are cited in the same parenthesis, the authors should be in chronological order. And if they have the same year, they should be in alphabetical order.

At the end of the article, in the References section the literature should be arranged in alphabetical order.


Formatting of the References should follow the examples provided below:
