Editorial Information



  • Only considers manuscripts for which copyright has not been assigned, that do not essentially duplicate already published material, and are not being simultaneously considered for publication elsewhere. If the submitted manuscript is based on the findings of an article in press or if such an article is cited in support of current findings, a copy of the article should be uploaded along with the submitted manuscript. 



  • Manuscripts need to be uploaded online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/epirev.
  • Manuscripts must be submitted in a double-spaced, blinded format, with pages numbered. When uploading the manuscript to the website, any text reference to the paper’s authors, affiliations, and acknowledgments should be deleted. Manuscripts without page numbers will be returned immediately to the author.
  • If a questionnaire has been used in the study, it should preferably be made available online.
  • The submission of multipart reviews is discouraged. If submitted, multipart papers should be prepared so they can be assigned to different editorial board members and independent outside expert reviewers.
  • For preparing the manuscript submission, see formatting and other requirements here: http://www.oxfordjournals.org/our_journals/epirev/for_authors/general.html.
