Before submitting a manuscript for publication, make sure it is in accordance with the requirements of Journal of Management & Production editorial policy. Those that do not meet the policy criteria will be sent back to the authors.



Works will be evaluated by three to five referees (blind-review) and all reviews will be analyzed by the Editorial Board. A manuscript will not be published if it is declined by two referees. The accepted manuscripts that were retained for review have to be reevaluated before publication to verify the completion of the referees’ assignment. The advising and assistance committee members represent the journal in their own institutions, and so they can be referees. The first number of each issue lists all referees who evaluated the manuscripts published in the previous volume. Whenever necessary, the manuscripts can be evaluated by ad-hoc referees.
