General Submission Rules

Publication in the JME takes place in three stages: Submission, Acceptance, and Publication

Sending us your work constitutes a submission.

After submission, you will be asked to sign a release form and agree to an editorial review process. You are under no obligation to the JME until returning the release form.

Returning the release form and agreeing to the ediorial review process is a requirement for acceptance.

You will be notified of your acceptance for publication in an upcoming volume. Once your work has been accepted we ask that you not submit your work elsewhere until after publication.

Once your work has been accepted you must complete the publication process.

Your work will be reviewed by our editorial staff and you might be asked to make changes or offered suggestions for improvement. The editor assigned to your work determines, ultimately, if your work meets the standards of publication. The editorial review process is designed to help authors/artists meet those standards.

If you submit your work, agree to and return the release form, complete the editorial review process, and meet the content standards decided upon by the staff member assigned to your genre, your work will be published in an upcoming volume.

  2. the author(s) must have approved the work for publication;
  3. the author(s) must have agreed to submit the article to the Journal;
