Papers submitted for possible publication in DMMS are initially evaluated by the editors with regard to their
suitability for the journal. This refers most of all to the content and
its scientific quality. Papers with insufficient contribution to our
fields of interest and/or poor organisation and/or not prepared in the
required style are rejected without delay so that the authors can
improve or submit their work elsewhere.
The manuscripts that are
ultimately registered are submitted to 2 reviewers for blind review. Papers are accepted unconditionally if the
reviewers agree that they may be published in their present form.
Otherwise, the reviews are forwarded to the authors for paper revision
and comments on the reviewers' remarks. Paper revisions are submitted
for re-review if requested by the reviewers or justified by the
editors. The final decision on paper publication (accept/reject) is
made by the editors and is not subject to appeal nor justification. The
full review process takes approximately 4 months, but the editors do
not set a deadline for the final decision.
publishes only papers that are original and have not been
submitted elsewhere. Also, we require that any and all contributions of
institutions and/or individuals to the submitted work be clearly stated
in the paper. Any cases of ghostwriting or guest authorship will be
disclosed and properly reported.
In order to prevent cases of scientific misconduct the Editorial Board
has procedures in place to deal with cases of "Ghost-writing", "Guest
Authorship", "Plagiarism" and "Self-plagiarism".
