Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- Anonymized 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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). 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 and the final preprint contains a respective comment on the first page.
- I (We) hereby declare that the copyright of the submission including all figures and tables (and supplemented material) is held by the author/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). In the event that any elements used in the submitted work contain the work of third-party individuals or legal entities, I/we understand that it is my/our responsibility to secure any necessary permissions. I/we hereby release and discharge the editors and the publisher and other publication sponsors and organizers from all liability arising out of the inclusion of copyrighted work in the publication. This includes, but is not limited to, my right of privacy or publicity, copyright, patent rights, trade secret rights, moral rights or trademark rights.
- I (We), the author/the authors, hereby grant the journal 'Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - International Journal of Conceptual Modeling' and the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI) the right of first publication and the non-exclusive, irrevocable and non-time limited publication permission for the submitted work 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. This includes the right of translation.
- I (We) hereby agree to license the published work under a Creative Commons BY-SA 4.0 license and to grant the journal 'Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - International Journal of Conceptual Modeling' and the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI) the right to license the work under a Creative Commons BY-SA 4.0 license.

Original research contributions are double-blind peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers, and must adhere to scholarly standards in terms of originality, level of abstraction and justification of results. The journal imposes no restrictions regarding the research paradigm or research method and is open to submissions from all scientific disciplines and fields. Note that submissions to this section may include large-scale (meta-)models, comprehensive language specifications, and other artefacts.
The editorial board invites submissions from for-profit, nonprofit and government organisations to the 'Experience Report' section. Submissions to this section will be reviewed by at least two reviewers with reviewing criteria adapted to the specific purposes of experience reports. Submissions to this category may, for example, discuss the application of modelling methods and languages and refer to a specific case in an organisation. Ideally, submissions should entail a description of the practical problem(s), the specifics of the case, and a discussion of design alternatives and design decisions as well as of the lessons learned to provide an orientation for problem solving in practice.
Report on Tool and Tool Application
Reports on Tools and Tool Applications describe and evaluate software tools and tool applications in the journal's areas of interest, e.g., (meta-)modelling tools, tools for M2M- and M2T-transformations, process-aware information systems, process management systems, process engines, software architectures of such tools. A submission to this section should describe and justify the tool design including all relevant design objectives and requirements, design alternatives and decisions and the software architecture. The tool description should focus on the specific features of the tool and relate the tool to other tools and prior related work. It is strongly encouraged that the described tools are openly accessible on the Web (i.e. Libre/Free/Open Source Software at best). If this is not possible, then they have to be made available to the reviewers (contact the editorial office for an arrangement). Submissions to this section are double-blind peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers (with review criteria adapted to this section), and must adhere to scholarly standards in terms of originality, level of abstraction and justification of results.
Reply to Published ArticleThe editorial board welcomes reply articles to previously published papers to foster scientific discourse. Submissions to this category are reviewed by the editors-in-chief.
