To submit an article to be considered for publication in an open issue, contact the journal editor for discussion, first of all. To submit an article to be considered for publication in a themed issue or guest-edited issue, contact the issue editor(s).
If your idea is approved, you will need to submit a polished version. This should be anonymised, with any identifying features removed. It will then be blind reviewed by two peer reviewers. Reviewers will make recommendations (accept, reject, revise), and, if appropriate, make suggestions for alterations or revisions.
If your article is accepted, you will be required to submit a final version that conforms to the style guide, as follows:
Spelling should be consistent throughout (e.g., US or British English throughout).
Quotation marks will be ‘single’ and not “double”, except ‘Quotations “within quotations”’.
All Punctuation falls outside the ‘quotation marks’.
Dashes – are in this style – which is space-dash-space. They are not—like this—ever.
Footnotes should ideally be kept to a minimum.
Images and Tables should not be gratuitous. NB: they are likely to be resized,
References in the text follow this format: (Surname Year: number). Subsequent occurrences may omit surname and year, but if there is any likelihood of ambiguity, give enough information to be clear. The references section at the end looks like this:
Black, I. (2011), ‘A year of uprisings and revolutions: uncertainty reigns in the Arab world’, The Guardian , 13 December, http://www.guardian.co.uk/theguardian/2011/dec/13/arab-world-uprisings-2011-future. [Accessed 15 December 2012]

If in doubt, consult previously published articles in JOMEC Journal.
Proof Reading, Copy Editing and Formatting
All submissions should conform to the style guidelines above. All submissions will be proofed, copy-edited and formatted by JOMEC Journal . Authors and guest editors are not expected to make their material look like a published journal issue. But, for those wishing to know, these are the key ingredients of the final product:
The front page of an article uses two fonts: Hamburg-Demibold and Hamburg-Medium .
(A PDF template is available for constructing the front page.)
The rest of articles use Hamburg-Demibold for headings and Hamburg-light for the rest.
The main body is .12, single spaced, justified.
Footnotes are .10, single spaced, justified.
The References list is .11, single spaced, justified, with a hanging indent.
Single and double columns are constructed with the use of the ‘page break (continuous)’
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
Where available, DOIs and URLs for the references have been provided.
