All submissions should include a manuscript file and optional supplementary information files and should be made via ScholarOne online submission system . Using this system, authors can upload manuscript files (text, figures and supplementary information) and check on the status of their manuscript. A single file including all text, tables, figures and references in Word Format is preferred, although attachment of separate files in MS Word, text, jpeg, tiff or other commonly used file formats is acceptable.
If an acknowledgement by email is not received within 5 working days, please contact the Editorial Office of OEA.
If editors or referees propose review to the manuscript, the manuscript will be returned to the author for revising and the author will be notified by Email. After revising the manuscript and writing a detailed reply to the reviewers with a list of changes made to the manuscript, the corresponding author will log onto ScholarOne system to submit a revised manuscript. Please be careful not to submit the revised draft as a new submission.
The author should carefully read the format requirements in the manuscript template and modify it as required. This will reduce later publication delays in the event the editor decides to offer publication of a suitably revised manuscript.
After passing the review, the author will also be required to submit a copyright agreement.
All accepted papers are subject to editing to ensure readability and conformity to OEA style. Authors will receive page proofs of their papers by e-mail with a PDF file. Page proof corrections should be returned the OEA editorial office as soon as possible, preferably within 24 hours of receipt and preferably by e-mail, to avoid publication delays.
