Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines for Journal of Management Leadership Submission

Manuscripts Submission: 

The Full Text Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript through email at Regardless of the source of the word-processing tool, preferably Word (.doc) files can be submitted through the system. The submitting author takes responsibility for the manuscript during submission and peer review.

Article Types for Submission:

All submitted formatted full-text articles should report original, previously unpublished research results, experimental or theoretical. Articles submitted to the JML should meet these criteria and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

These articles should describe new and carefully confirmed findings, and experimental procedures should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work. The length of a full text article should be the minimum required to describe and interpret the work clearly. Regular Research Articles are 5 to 10 printed pages in length

Terms of Submission:

Manuscripts must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article's publication has been approved by all the other co-authors. It is also the authors' responsibility to ensure that the articles emanating from a particular institution are submitted with the approval of the necessary institution. Only an acknowledgment from the editorial office officially establishes the date of receipt. Further correspondence and proofs will be sent to the author(s) before publication unless otherwise indicated. It is a condition of submission of a paper that the authors permit editing of the paper for readability.

Peer Review Process:

All manuscripts are subject to peer-review and are expected to meet the scientific criteria of significance and academic excellence. Submissions will be considered by the editors and—if not rejected right away—by peer-reviewers, whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors.

Units of Measurement: In general, non-standard abbreviations should be used only when the full term is very long and used often. Each abbreviation should be spelled out and introduced in parentheses the first time it is used in the text.
