Author Identification
Articles and other contributions will only be considered if the author’s identity and affiliation can be verified. In case of multiple person authorship please indicate the corresponding author (otherwise first author as default corresponding author)

The editors of WEPR will screen the submitted material for unreasonable or unethical content but will not perform a peer review. For this reason we kindly request you to provide material which refers to published and peer reviewed work such as conference proceeding, journal publications and PhD-theses. Notes regarding research programs, collaborations or initiatives do not need to be peer reviewed.

All contributors are responsible for correct copyright application in the submitted material. Make sure sources are referred to correctly. Some journals and publishers hold exclusive copyright on published material. Be aware of issues related to pre-publication in connection with PhD-theses.

All pictures and other visual material should be cleared for copyright and release agreement. In some cases the identification of the origin satisfies legal issues, e.g. “With courtesy of …” or material published under GNU Free Documentation License or similar. In any case, respect the origin of used material and provide proper references.

General scientific referencing practice applies. You may consider the Harvard System of Referencing.

Covered Commercial Advertisement
Generally contributions shall not serve commercial advertisement. All submitted material will be screened and rejected if deemed qualifying for commercial advertising purpose. Alternatively, commercial advertisement can be made available for an annual fee. For details please contact WEPR editor.

The site is generated with WordPress, a free and open source blogging tool and publishing platform powered by PHP and MySQL. For this web site the platform operates as a content management system (CMS). Hence, the uploaded material assumes the pre-defined format with some variations. For this reason submit your material UNFORMATTED, for example as a simple txt-file. All graphs, equations and pictures should be submitted separately in jpg-format. To ensure the layout and structure you desire you may add a formatted document (pdf) containing the graphical material as well.
