Editorial Policy

All published articles are freely available online immediately to anyone, anywhere, with no subscription or access fees. The journal will only consider manuscripts that have not previously been published and that are not under consideration for publication or in press elsewhere. Journal of Management and Operation Research (JoMOR) uses software to screen papers for unoriginal material.

All manuscript submissions are subject to initial appraisal by an Editor and, if considered suitable, to single-blind peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees.

For manuscripts that replicate research or present similar results to previously published research, authors should provide a rationale for their work and existing literature should be referenced and discussed appropriately.


Journal of Management and Operation Research requires that all individuals who meet authorship criteria are included as authors on an article.

Contributions from individuals who do not qualify for authorship should be acknowledged in the ‘Acknowledgments’ section.

Please include all authors’ full names, affiliations and email addresses on the title page. All authors are strongly encouraged to include an ORCID identifier and, where available, social media handles (Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn). One author will need to be identified as the corresponding author, with their email address normally displayed in the article PDF and the online article. Authors’ affiliations are the affiliations where the research was conducted. If any of the named co-authors moves affiliation during the peer-review process, the new affiliation can be given as a footnote. Please note that no changes to affiliation can be made after your paper is accepted.

Competing Interest Policy

ECDC Publishing has a transparent publications policy, requiring authors to declare any relevant competing interests of a personal, professional or financial nature at the time of submission. All authors should disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence or bias their work.

Competing interests may be made available to reviewers and will appear in the published article at the discretion of the Editors or Publisher. The intention of this policy is not to prevent authors with these relationships from publishing their work, but rather to adopt transparency for readers to be able to make objective judgments on the conclusions drawn.

Data Sharing Policy

Journal of Management and Operation Research applies the ECDC Publishing sharing policy. Authors are encouraged to share or make open the data supporting the results or analyses presented in their paper where this does not violate the protection of human subjects or other valid privacy or security concerns.

If you are uncertain about where to deposit your data, please see this information regarding repositories.
