For journal authors

Prospective journal articles

Please follow the “Submissions” information and guidelines given on the home page of the International Press journal to which you intend to submit an article. You should submit your article as instructed therein. Please do not submit your article to a general International Press e-mail address.

For further information about journal article submission and acceptance, please see the specific instructions given in the “Submissions” section of each journal’s home page.

Proofreading obligations

Prior to publication of a journal article, its corresponding author will be asked to review typesetter’s page proofs of the article, to correct any typographical or technical errors in the proof, and to reply to any typesetter’s queries. If the request to review the proof is not answered or acknowledged by the author within one week, resulting in undue delays, the article might need to be excluded from the designated journal issue. Also, please note that just one round of corrections is permitted under ordinary circumstances.

In the unlikely event that a journal’s editors must exclude an article from an issue (because of delays as described above), the author may arrange with the editors for the article’s publication in a subsequent issue.

Journal-article DOIs

An International Press DOI having our publisher prefix of 10.4310 is assigned to each new journal article when the article is published online on

The purpose of an International Press DOI is, specifically, to identify an article published online by International Press. It does not identify the article generically, nor does it identify any other online publication of the article. Rather, it identifies our publication of the article: by the journal issue in which it appears, by it page numbers, by its sequence within the issue, and by its online URL. The DOI itself is named using the journal issue number and the article’s sequence within the issue. Please note that, at the time of acceptance for publication, none of that information is firmly established.
