Papers will go through a blind peer-reviewing process and the final decision about papers accepted for publication will be given by the editors. Questions regarding the EBES Anthology can be directed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no submission fee. However, after the refereeing process, authors of the accepted papers are required to pay a publishing fee of 25 Euros per page to cover the publication cost and to get the papers published quickly without significant publication lags. Authors do not need to pay the publishing fee until their manuscripts are accepted.
SUBMISSIONS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES WILL NOT BE REVIEWED AND WILL BE RETURNED TO THE AUTHORS.
- Papers submitted to the EBES Anthology may not be under review for publication in any other journal.
- Articles must be submitted in English. Use proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization and sentence structure. We accept American/Canadian/British spellings (i.e., behavior or behavior).
- Any hypotheses are explicitly identified as such.
- Acknowledgment of financial support may be given in the text as a footnote rather than in the abstract, if appropriate.
- Articles may not be longer than 30 pages (including references, tables, figures, and appendixes) typed in 1.5 line spacing with 12-point Times New Roman font using the Harvard referencing system. Please see “Sample References” section for details.
- All articles must contain an abstract of no more than 150 words with 3 to 5 keywords and JEL Classifications.
- Page margins must be one inch top, bottom, and each side. The font, margin, and line-spacing requirements are also binding for reference lists. Abstract should be written with 10-point Times New Roman font.
- An anonymous copy of the paper for blind refereeing is also required. A separate cover letter, indicating the title of the paper, author’s affiliations, emails, and contact information with the corresponding author indicated must be attached.
- There is nothing in the text that implicitly or explicitly identifies the authors.
- Please avoid bulleted lists in the text.
Figures and Tables:
- All figures, tables, illustrations, etc. should be placed in the text at the appropriate places, rather than at the end.
- Number each table separately using Arabic numerals along with the section number (i.e. Table 3.1). Specify the desired location of each table in the text. Type a brief title above each table.
- Number each graph separately using Arabic numerals along with the section number (i.e. Graph 3.1). Specify the desired location of each graph in the text. Type a brief title under each table.
Instructions for Sending Final Files
For submission, please send the following documents to email@example.com:

(ii) an anonymous copy of the paper for blind refereeing
(iii) a separate title page indicating the title of the paper, author’s affiliations, emails, and contact information with the corresponding author indicated.
Please strictly follow the submission guidelines. There will be a desk rejection and if your paper passes the desk rejection, papers will be sent to a referee and go through a blind peer-reviewing process. The final decision about papers accepted for publication will be given by the editors of the EBES Anthology.
To facilitate the editing process, please make sure that your references are complete, accurate, and written in Harvard referencing system. Please take a look at the following link for more details on Harvard referencing system:

- Authors cited in that text should be written as: Cormack (1994, pp.32-33) states…
- When a cited work has three or more authors in the text, the form (main author et al., year) is used. (Don’t forget to italicize et al.)
- Online citations include the date of access.
- Cited works that are chapters in a book or articles in a magazine include page numbers.
