  • The submission adheres to JEDM's ethical standards for publication.
  • The submission follows JEDM's formatting and style guidelines.
  • All competing interests have been declared.
  • Authorship follows JEDM guidelines.

The guidelines for formatting the manuscript are provided in the zip template format file that can be downloaded from the Information for authors page. These guidelines include citation style and references.


For matters of style not addressed by the guidelines above, authors are encouraged to consider APA style. It is important to note that some elements of APA style contradict JEDM's formatting requirements, so when in doubt, follow the JEDM guidelines.


Manuscripts should be carefully proofread before submission. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the free version of Grammarly for MS Word and for LaTeX to proofread their submission.


Authors are encouraged to share the code behind their submissions. While links to code can be included in footnotes, authors are encouraged to consider making their code repositories archival and citable.
