Author Guidelines

  1. Acceptance Criteria

The manuscript needs to be scientifically important, original, and interesting to the scientific audience for acceptance in the journal. According to the editorial policy, all submitted manuscripts undergo an in-depth double-blind peer review. The review procedure document is provided on the journal website.

  1. Types of content 

EJFE welcomes and acknowledges high-quality theoretical and empirical original research papers, case studies, review papers, literature reviews, book reviews, conceptual frameworks, analytical and simulation models, and technical notes. The journal aims to be a broad range of multidisciplinary platform in engineering and formal sciences where researchers and scientists share their recent research findings and contributions with the scientific community and the audience worldwide.

  1. Topics

Engineering as a scientific field is deeply connected with other formal sciences, especially mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Sharing research findings in these areas is expected to contribute to engineering fields.
