Frequently Asked Questions





How do I publish a proposal in the Journal of Nonlocality?

 

Submissions are accepted and published as rapid pre-prints throughout the year. To upload a proposal, go to our journal website, register (if not already a user) then follow the instructions for authors.

All papers will be pre-screened/peer-reviewed by our editorial board within 2 weeks of submission, after which accepted articles will be published in the Open Submissions section of the journal for open peer review. All reader comments will be moderated and published on both the JNL and M3P websites, following which the author will be given a chance to revise the original paper prior to final publication in the Journal of Nonlocality. Final papers will be assigned a unique DOI  through CrossRef and indexed in the appropriate databases.  

 

 

What are the requirements for a proposal submission?

 

We accept fully detailed protocols as well as short-form (2-3 page) proposals. However, please try to follow the following format:

a.      Define question

b.      Concrete example (if applicable)

c.      Historical/scientific background
