What People Are Saying

“I would like to express my deepest gratitude for an excellent reviewing and publishing process.”

“First of all our appreciation of your efforts here. All of the authors felt that the quality of the publication layout was superior. Your attention to the details of the layouts of the figures was beyond what we have experienced in other journals. Congratulations. We will try to publish more in your journal.”

“I wrote four years ago that I was impressed by the speed and efficiency of processing of the previous paper I had published in EJMS. I am even more impressed this time.”

Authors’ Rights

We endeavour to strike a fair balance between allowing authors to reuse their paper and our commercial needs to keep publishing our and the community’s journals. We have, for some years, offered an Open Access publishing option in our peer-review journals.

As an author of a paper in our journals:

  • You retain all proprietary rights other than copyright, including patent rights.
  • You are free to use your article for internal educational or other purposes.
  • You are free to mount a copy of your paper on your own or your institution’s internal website, but not on any publicly accessible website or other means of distribution.
  • You may use the paper, in whole or in part, as the basis for your own further publications or spoken presentations.
  • You do not need to request permission from IM Publications to reuse figures, tables or short passages of text in other publications, provided that you credit the original source, do not make any changes to the original material or if you do indicate this in the credit. Please use the form of credit:
    Reproduced from [Authors’ Names], [Journal Name] [Volume(Issue)], [Start Page–End Page] ([Year]). Copyright IM Publications [Year].

However, you may not:

  • Place a copy of the paper on any publicly accessible website or server, including your personal website if it is publicly accessible, a publicly accessible institutional repository or article sharing websites.

If you would like to make your paper freely available on publicly accessible sites, you can choose our Open Access publishing option. This can be selected after acceptance of your paper, or at any time, even some years after publication.
