What is e-Version FirstTM

e-Version First is a feature offered through our journal platform. It allows PDF version of manuscripts that have been peer-reviewed and accepted, to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final printed journal. Readers can freely access or cite the article.
We aim to publish accepted manuscripts in e-Version First in two week's time after the final draft completed.

Each paper published in Engineering Management Research is assigned a DOI®number, which appears beneath the author's affiliation in the published paper.

Author Guidelines


Submission of an article implies that the work  described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication.

Copyrights for articles are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author's responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.

The publisher and journals have a policy of “Zero Tolerance on the Plagiarism”. We check the issue with two methods: plagiarism prevention tool ( and reviewer check. All submissions will be checked by iThenticate before sending to reviewers.

The authors authorize the publisher to archive the article into databases and indexes (such as EBSCO, DOAJ, ProQuest), and permit the publisher to apply DOI to the article.

All manuscripts should be prepared in MS-Word format, and submitted online. CLICK HERE to submit your paper online.
