Author Guidelines

Submissions to EMISA should be prepared using the LaTeX package specific to the journal and must be submitted in PDF format (contact the editorial office if another typesetting system is preferred for the initial submission, e.g. Microsoft Word or LibreOffice). The most recent, i.e. current EMISA LaTeX package is available for download from Github ("Download Zip"). The canonical release version of the package is available on CTAN and, even more convenient, through package managers in common TeX distributions, e.g. MikTeX and TeXLive. Refer to the author instructions and style guidelines (in emisa.pdf) when preparing your manuscript for submission. An article template is provided as a starting point for manuscript preparation as well (emisa-author-template.tex).

Authors should note that

  • the journal uses an author-year ('Harvard') citation style,
  • figures (e.g. diagrams, schematic drawings) should be prepared as vector graphics,
  • images (e.g. screenshots) should be prepared as bitmap graphics and provided in print-quality high-resolution (avoid pixelation due to low resolution; bitmap graphics shown in full page width in the submission should at least be of a resolution of 2 megapixels or at least 1920 pixels wide).

Submissions accepted for publication must be formatted by the author(s) using the LaTeX document class for EMISA in accordance with the style defined by the journal (see LaTeX template documentation) as well as proofread. The authors of accepted papers are required to provide the final preprint of an accepted paper consisting of:

  • the LaTeX source code of the submission (ready to compile using the EMISA LaTeX document class for authors),
  • all external files required to compile the final PDF of the accepted paper, in particular external files such as vector and bitmap graphcis, and the bibliographic database (the BibLaTeX .bib file),
  • the precompiled PDF preprint version of the accepted paper (i.e. the copyedited, final proof).

Please note that the maximum file size per upload is roughly 16 MB.

The editorial office provides only limited support with preparing submissions using the EMISA LaTeX package, and assists with finding LaTeX support services if needed (see also the TeX User Group).   

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission follows the Author Guidelines described above.
  2. Anonymised for double-blind review: All references to the authors of the submission have been removed from the submitted PDF of the manuscript, and anonymous placeholders (e.g. <removed for review>) have been used instead where appropriate.
  3. If the manuscript is to be submitted to a Special Issue, the 'Comment to the editor(s)' textfield (presented during the submission process) is used to indicate to which Special Issue the manuscript is submitted.
  4. The submission includes a separate cover page (as supplementary file) with the manuscript's title and the names, affiliations and e-mail addresses of all authors, and the first page of the manuscript contains the title of the manuscript but does not mention the authors' names etc. for a double-blind review process.
  5. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in the 'Comments to the Editor' field below). If the submission is based on an earlier publication (e.g. in a conference proceedings), it entails a corresponding statement in the 'Comments to the Editor' field below and the final preprint contains a comment on the first page.
  6. I (We) hereby declare that the copyright of the submission including all figures and tables (and supplemented material) is held by the authors which implies that the submission (or parts of it) does not infringe any copyright by a third party or other copyright holder (e.g. another journal or publisher).
  7. I (We) hereby grant the journal 'Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - An International  Journal' and the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI) the right of first publication and the non-exclusive rights to store, copy, distribute and reproduce their work in printed and electronic form for the duration of the legal copyright.
