Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in LaTeX using the JOT template.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.

Author Guidelines

Submissions are welcome in all areas of Object Technology. JOT welcomes original research contributions, empirical studies, mature best practice reports and state-of-the-art surveys.

Submissions must not have been previously published or submitted for publication in another venue. Research submissions that extend a previously published conference or or workshop paper must contain at least 30% new material to be considered original. The cover letter to the submission must list all related previous publications and detail the differences to the submitted paper. Manuscripts should be concise and complete, and should be carefully proofread. Submissions that do not meet these standards may be returned without review.

Submissions must use the JOT LaTeX template. To the benefit of prospective authors, the JOT LaTeX template is already available on the Overleaf platform ready to use. Papers not using this format will not be considered for review. JOT does not have fixed page limits, though a typical paper is around 25–30 pages. Lengthier submissions may be considered if justified. (Supporting material, such as extended code examples or full proofs of theorems may be placed in a separate appendix.)

Authors are invited to suggest an Associate Editor of JOT with the appropriate expertise to assess the paper, provided no conflict of interest exists. (An author is considered to have a conflict of interest with an editor or reviewer if they have co-authored papers or have otherwise been in a close professional relationship within the past six years.) An acknowledgment of receipt from the editor should be expected within a few days of submitting a paper.

Members of the Editorial Board are permitted to submit papers to JOT.
