Permissions & Licensing

All uncited data published in a JEI manuscript, must NOT be published in any other academic journal, conference proceedings, or any other publication under copyright. Additionally, if work was performed in a research lab with government funding (typically at a university) you MUST make sure you have the permission of the head of the lab to publish the work.

If your work has been published elsewhere and you are unsure that it would violate copyright restrictions please contact us at submissions(at)emerginginvestigators.org for more information.

It is also important to note that the same manuscript cannot be submitted to multiple journals at the same time, and if we find that this has happened, the submission will be immediately withdrawn from the review process with JEI.

Everything published at JEI is free and licensed under the Creative Commons attribution non-commercial, no derivative license (CC-BY-NC-ND). This means you are free to distribute your own manuscript, as well as any other JEI articles, with others as long as you are doing so for free and without editing it.
