  4. Statement that the manuscript has not been published or currently submitted to another journal

Manuscript Guidelines

Manuscripts must be written at a level allowing for a broad audience, from undergraduate and graduate students to professionals in academia, business, industry, and government. Each manuscript must be prepared in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) and be 10 to 25 double-spaced pages. Manuscripts must be submitted with necessary graphics, in-line citations, and a list of references cited written in accordance with the APA 6th edition style.

The first page of the paper should be the title page, including the paper title, abstract, and five selected keywords or phrases. A 150- to 250- word abstract should state the purpose, results, and conclusion of the work. The manuscript should begin on the second page.

Masked Review Policy

According to the Journal of Business & Technology’s policy, the identities of authors and reviewers are masked. Manuscripts are circulated to members of the Editorial Board without their title pages to mask the identity of the authors. Please provide the authors’ names and affiliations in the cover letter. This information must not appear anywhere else on the manuscript. Footnotes that identify the authors must be placed on a separate page.

All submissions undergo a double-masked, peer-review process, (i.e., the identity of the authors is not disclosed to the reviewers and vice versa). There will be two reviewers assigned for each submission, and from the submission of a manuscript to the notification of review result takes about two months. The decision letter will include the reviewers’ suggestions and comments; their recommendations to accept, revise, and resubmit; or reject the submission, as well as the final decision from the co-editors. Each manuscript might undergo multiple review rounds.

Manuscripts that do not conform to the submission guidelines will be returned without review.
