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.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

The Journal of Management in Business, Healthcare, and Education (JMBHE) publishes scholarly empirical, theoretical, and review articles dealing with management.
The following brief checklist provides a quick reference for you to follow during your submission and manuscript review process.

  • Papers submitted should not be under concurrent consideration at another journal.
  • Any actual or potential data overlap with previous studies should be noted and described in the letter to the Editor. To maintain masked review, provide an anonymized data transparency table describing actual or potential data overlap. 
  • All new manuscripts should be submitted electronically.
  • Files should be submitted in Microsoft Word format.
  • Papers that violate the guidelines (e.g., papers that are single-spaced, papers that use footnotes rather than conventional referencing formats, papers that greatly exceed 50 pages), or which do not fit the journal’s mission will be immediately returned to authors without being reviewed.
  • We encourage you to have a colleague peer review any paper before submission. To maintain masked review, please acknowledge your peer reviewer(s) and include other author notes in the letter to the Editor.
  • During the review process, including at the Conditional Accept stage, manuscripts may be subject to additional methodological screening that may require the submission of additional information (e.g. analysis code, analysis output; original data). 
  • Accepted papers must fully adhere to the guidelines.
  • Published papers will use the affiliations of each author at the time of the original submission. No changes can be made at any stage in the review/publication process.
  • Changes in authorship (e.g. addition; subtraction; change in order) during a revision process must be clearly explained in a letter to the Editor.

Points of Interest

  • Submissions will be acknowledged via email upon receipt. We strive to make an editorial decision in under 90 days, but circumstances beyond our control occasionally dictate a longer cycle.
  • Each paper is typically reviewed by at least two reviewers and read by the action editor (either the Editor or an Associate Editor). Results of our decision and copies of the reviews will be forwarded to the contact author as quickly as possible.
  • If authors are invited to prepare a revision for further consideration, our letters of invitation will outline the key issues to be resolved and assess the likelihood of success.
  • Authors are normally given three to six weeks from the date of the invitation to prepare a revision. Our policy is to strive to make a final publication decision after one or two revisions (of course, further work may also be requested to resolve any remaining issues).
