Evaluation of Manuscripts:
Manuscripts will be considered for appropriateness to DMEJL Law by the Editor-in-Chief/Chief Editor with assistance from the Executive Editors. Those manuscripts not considered appropriate will be declined outright. The manuscripts are evaluated by the Executive Editors, who submit their recommendations to the Editorial Board to either accept or reject, on certain conditions. The Executive Editors can even return the manuscript to the authors for revision. A request for revision does not guarantee the article will be accepted for publication.
Duplicate Publication Prohibited:
Papers are considered for publication in DMEJL on condition that they are not under consideration by another publication and no part of the manuscript has been published elsewhere (including in another language or as part of a book). Simultaneous submission to another journal is cause for immediate withdrawal of the manuscript from the review process.
DMEJL does not charge any submission fee.
