Instructions to Authors
The Journal of Industrial Economics
(Revised April, 2015)
Submission of a paper is taken to imply that the material is unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. The Editors expect that the refereeing process should usually take no more than three months, and on average it should be substantially less.
Manuscripts should be uploaded electronically to the JIE Submissions Page via the Journal’s website (www.jindec.org). On the Home page, click 'Guidelines' at top right. Next click 'Instructions to Authors.' In the right sidebar, click the grey box, 'Online Article Submission. This opens our editorial site in Editorial Express. Across the top of the screen are seven shaded boxes: the ‘Start of Submission Process’ box followed by six enumerated boxes each corresponding to a stage in the submission process. These must be completed in sequence. Proceed carefully and you will find it very simple. And if you run into a problem, there is a direct link to the Editorial Express help team.
The Submissions Page may also be accessed via the Wiley Online Library (onlinelibrary.wiley.com) Go to the Journal of Industrial Economics section. In the left hand column ‘For Contributors’ click ‘Submit an Article’ and our Editorial Express site will open as previously described.
It is worth taking considerable care to ensure that your paper incorporates the qualities that the Editors are looking for and that give the Journal its distinct character. These are described on the website under ‘Advice for Authors’ and on the inside back cover of the Journal itself. Read both carefully, and keep in mind that most successful submissions treat questions that are well grounded in real world problems or have policy relevance. Authors are asked to consult recent issues of the Journal to gain an impression of the style of articles normally published.
All papers should be written in clear, unambiguous and grammatically correct English. In exceptional cases the Editors may provide assistance in preparing a final version of a paper for authors whose first language is not English. Authors are expected to take every care to avoid the inclusion of material which might be considered defamatory.
