Manuscripts submitted to EMISAJ can be prepared using any text processing/typesetting system, e.g. LibreOffice or Microsoft Word™. However, manuscript preparation using the LaTeX package specific to the journal (e.g. using our Overleaf template) is strongly encouraged. Manuscripts submitted for review to EMISAJ must follow the "Submission Preparation Checklist" and should follow these general style guidelines:
Note that EMISAJ accepts manuscripts for review in any reasonable visual layout (to minimize the effort on part of authors, e.g., if the manuscript had been prepared in a journal-independent layout and formatting style). Manuscripts must be submitted for review in the Portable Document Format (PDF). Also note that the authors of accepted manuscripts are required to prepare their (final preprint) manuscript version in LaTeX using the journal's LaTeX package following the journal's Author Instructions and Style Guidelines.
The EMISAJ publishing process relies entirely on the LaTeX package prepared specifically for publications in EMISAJ. The most recent, i.e., current and bug-fixed version of the EMISAJ LaTeX package is available for download from its Github repository (including the most recent Author Instructions and Style Guidelines). The canonical release version of the package is available from the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN), and, even more conveniently, through package managers in common TeX distributions, e.g., in MikTeX and TeXLive. You may need to refresh the list of available packages to obtain access to the prepackaged EMISAJ LaTeX package. Note that an article template is provided as a starting point for manuscript preparation as part of the EMISAJ LaTeX package (emisa-author-template.tex) which significantly simplifies manuscript preparation for EMISAJ.
UPDATE: For your convenience you can also use the following Overleaf Template. This ensures compatibility during the publishing process, as copy editing is done using Overleaf. (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/enterprise-modelling-and-information-systems-architectures-journal-emisaj-author-template/xmvrnpdxdksd)
Submissions accepted for publication must be formatted by the author(s) using the EMISAJ LaTeX package in accordance with the style defined by the journal (see Author Instructions and Style Guidelines) as well as thoroughly proofread. The authors of accepted papers are required to provide the following documents for copyediting and postproduction:
Please note that the maximum file size per upload in the online submission system amounts to roughly 16 MB.
The editorial office provides only limited support with preparing submissions using the EMISAJ LaTeX package, and assists with finding LaTeX support services if needed (see also the TeX User Group). Oftentimes, your local (La)TeX guru can be asked for assistance if need be.
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.
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.
