Philosophy of Mansoura Engineering Journal
For more information, please see Mansoura Engineering Journal Aims and Scope page.
Who Can Submit?
Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in Mansoura Engineering Journal provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are the initial owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer).
General Submission Rules
Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Please note: "publication" in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to Mansoura Engineering Journal, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at Mansoura Engineering Journal. If you have concerns about the submission terms for Mansoura Engineering Journal, please contact the editors.
Rights for Authors and Mansoura Engineering Journal
As further described in our submission agreement (the Submission Agreement ), in consideration for publication of the article, the authors assign to Mansoura Engineering Journal all copyright in the article.
Attribution and Usage Policies
Reproduction, posting, transmission or other distribution or use of the article or any material therein, in any medium as permitted by a personal-use exemption or by written agreement of Mansoura Engineering Journal, requires credit to Mansoura Engineering Journal as copyright holder (e.g., Mansoura Engineering Journal © 2023).
People who have questions about use, should contact the editors.
General Terms and Conditions of Use
Users of the Mansoura Engineering Journal website and/or software agree not to misuse the Mansoura Engineering Journal service or software in any way.
The failure of Mansoura Engineering Journal to exercise or enforce any right or provision in the policies or the Submission Agreement does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any term of the Submission Agreement or these policies is found to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Submission Agreement and these policies remain in full force and effect. These policies and the Submission Agreement constitute the entire agreement between Mansoura Engineering Journal and the Author(s) regarding submission of the Article.
All authors of research papers submitted to the journal should make a substantial contribution to the process of paper development and will be accountable for the paper in its published form. Authors should define the incremental contribution of the paper by referencing relevant work on which the paper is based. Submitting a paper that is substantially the same as a previously published paper is considered a serious breach of professional ethics and may result in the editor informing officials at the authors' institutions of this breach. Papers that are improved versions of working papers or published in conference proceedings are also considered for review.
Manuscripts that have been rejected are not eligible for further consideration by the MEJ journal. If a resubmission is allowed, it is explicitly stated as such in the editor's decision.
An article that is concurrently reviewed in another journal can not be in a review process at MEJ.
Conflict of Interest
The authors and reviewers are required to inform the editors of the conflict of interest. The authors are explicitly requested to declare any conflict of interest at the submission of a revised manuscript. The reviewers are obliged to inform the subject editor or Editor-in-Chief of any conflict of interest as soon as the such situation is manifested. Descriptions of potential situations of conflict of interest are provided in the Ethical policy.
MEJ is an open-access journal. All articles are permanently free for everyone to read, download, copy and distribute. Permitted reuse is defined by the following user license: Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0).
The authors transfer the copyright to Faculty of Engineering, Mansoura University in addition to the publication and distribution rights.
