Submission and Publication Process
The International Journal of Modern Engineering was developed for engineering, engineering technology, and industrial technology professionals and is a highly selective refereed print journal. Manuscripts that appear in the IJME Articles section have been subjected to a tiered review process. Each manuscript receives an editorial review to determine its suitability for the journal and may be rejected without a content review. The manuscript is then blinded before being submitted to content experts on the IAJC International Review Board (IRB). The reviewers then submit their recommendations along with any issues, concerns, or questions about the content of the manuscript to the journal’s editors. The editors send a summary of the reviewers’ concerns back to the authors, who then must respond, in writing, to each issue raised by the reviewers and/or editors and submit a revised manuscript. After a review of the authors’ responses and the revised manuscript, the manuscript will be accepted, rejected, or sent back to the same set of reviewers for a second review. Based on the results of the second review, the revised manuscript will be accepted for publication or rejected.
The International Journal of Modern Engineering is a print/online journal specifically geared for the engineering and related technology professions. Please note that all submissions to this journal—such as articles, peer-reviews of documents and editing requests, as well as replies to authors regarding the status of their submissions—will be handled electronically and sent to the manuscript editor, Dr. Philip Weinsier, at along with a copy to su.em1508410196ji@ro1508410196tide1508410196 .
All manuscript submissions must be prepared in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) and contain all figures, images and/or pictures embedded where you want them and appropriately captioned. Also, each figure, image or picture that was imported into your Word document must be saved individually as a 300-dpi or higher JPEG (.jpg) file; that means one additional file for each figure in your manuscript. If, for example, a table or graph is created directly in Word, you do not have to submit it again in a separate file. Use the respective figure number (where it goes in your manuscript) as the file name.
The editorial staff reserves the right to format and edit any submitted document in order to meet publication standards of the journal. Included here is a summary of the formatting instructions. You should, however, review the sample Word document included on our website (www.ijme.us/formatting_guidelines.htm) for a detailed analysis of how to correctly format your manuscript. The references included in the References section of your manuscript must follow APA-formatting guidelines. In order to help you, the sample document also includes numerous examples of how to format a variety of scenarios. If you have a reference source for which you are not able to find the correct APA format, contact me for help anytime. Keep in mind that an incorrectly formatted manuscript will be returned to you, a delay that may cause it to be moved to a subsequent issue of the journal.
Please follow the two-step process to submit and publish your paper in IJME.
