Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit high-quality original unpublished work, on topics within the scope of the journal, that is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers will be rigorously reviewed by at least two referees who are knowledgeable in the field.

Papers to be considered for publication must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are recommended to seek the advice of a native English speaker, if possible, before submitting their manuscripts. Papers may be rejected if the English is poor or there are errors present.

To emphasise the relevance of the submission to the KES Journal, authors are asked to cite in their submission several papers that have already been published in the Journal.

Preparation of manuscripts

Organization of the paper and style of presentation

1. Manuscripts should be formatted with 1 inch or 2.5 cm width margins on all sides and single spacing throughout, including the abstract, footnotes and references.

There is no formal restriction on the length of the paper, however, reviewers will consider whether the length of the paper is appropriate when judging whether it should be published.

As a guide, papers should be between 10 and 15 pages in the printed journal, corresponding to about 5000 - 8000 words.

In the text no reference should be made to page numbers; if necessary, one may refer to sections. Try to avoid the excessive use of italics and bold face.

2. Manuscripts should be organized in the following order: 3. Title page The title page should provide the following information: 4. Tables 5. Figures 6. References 7. Footnotes Copyright

Authors submitting a manuscript do so on the understanding that if their paper is accepted for publication, copyright in the article, including the right to reproduce the article in all forms and media, shall be assigned exclusively to the Publisher.

Quoting from other publications

An author, when quoting from someone else's work or when considering reproducing a figures or table from a book or journal article, should make sure that they are not infringing a copyright. Although in general an author may quote from other published works, they should obtain permission from the holder of the copyright if they wish to make substantial extracts or to reproduce tables, plates or other figures. If the copyright holder is not the author of the quoted or reproduced material, it is recommended that the permission of the author should also be sought. Material in unpublished letters and manuscripts is also protected and must not be published unless permission has been obtained. Submission of a paper will be interpreted as a statement that the author has obtained all the necessary permission. A suitable acknowledgement of any borrowed material must always be made.


The corresponding author is asked to check the galley proofs (the publisher will execute a cursory check only). Corrections other than printer's errors, however, should be avoided. Costs arising from such corrections will be charged to the authors.
