Author Guidelines

All contributions to the CEJM go through the OJS information system at the address https://journals.muni.cz/cejm , where there are also detailed instructions for submitting a contribution.

Due to the automatization of the editing system, information about the authors and their contact details are kept separately from the point when the author registers on the system – therefore, it is not necessary for them to be contained within the text of the contribution. Contributions are therefore entered into the system without the names and addresses of the authors.

The article can be uploaded onto the system as follows:

  1. File – complete article including graphs, pictures and tables. No names or addresses. Contributions are accepted in these formats .doc, .docx
  2. Appendix files – tables, graphs and pictures separately. Please keep to the following recommendations:
  • Minimum picture resolution is 300 DPI.
  • Permitted picture formats- .jpg, .tif, .png, .bmp, .wmf, PDF.
  • Permitted graph formats - .xlsx

Permitted table formats – .doc, .docx, .xlsx

General principles

  • Text in English – the text must be written using correct grammar and should be easy to read.
  • The text must be appropriate for the journal - the CEJM is a scientific journal which publishes original academic works and papers from the field of management. The character of the accepted articles can be that of survey articles, contributions for discussion emerging from research activities, reviews, consultations and practical applications from management. All of the above are consistent in their content with the AE code.
  • The text must contain only original information which has not been published in any other media.
  • The text must be written in accordance with publishing ethics and must correspond with the structure and requirements of an academic text, as set out in the instructions for authors      (introduction, methodology, results, discussion, references)
  • Each article must be in accordance with the publication ethics  of the review procedure. Firstly the article is assessed by an editor and if it meets the requirements it is then sent on for at least one review proceeding by two independent reviewers. On the basis of the responses of the reviewers and the editorial board the article is then evaluated in the categories: accepted without changes; sent back for revision or expansion; rejected.

Structure of the article

Introductory page

  • Title – short, appropriate text expressing the main idea behind the submitted article
  • Abstract – short and appropriate text which characterizes the content of the document, such as an overview of the methodology used, a summary of the results and a brief conclusion. The recommended length of the abstract is 10 lines. The information in the abstract must correspond to the information contained in the text of the contribution. Avoid general formulations.
  • Key words – recommended maximum of 10 words which clearly      and appropriately identify the document. Please avoid general concepts. Key words are divided by a comma and are in lower case

Main text

  • Introduction, theoretical basis and hypotheses

The introduction should contain the aim of the work and a short introduction to the issue under research. The introduction presents the theoretical section of the work, where it is necessary to acquaint the reader with the theoretical aspects of the work. Hypotheses are formulated on the basis of the theoretical element.

  • Methodology

In this section the reader is introduced to the research methods the author used for verifying the hypotheses put forward. The technical data used in the analysis and interpretation of the results attained should also be presented.

  • Results

In this section the results of the research should be clearly and concisely formulated.

  • Discussion, limitations and conclusions

Here the author primarily sets out the importance of the findings from the research and their impact on the area under research. It is also appropriate to present the limitations of the research and suggest possible further areas of study. Conclusions are also reached on the issue under investigation.

  • Bibliography

Only list sources used in the text. Use the Harvard style for bibliographical citations – see attached instructions:

Pictures, graphs and tables – for pictures and graphs use the title Figure (Fig.) and a number, for tables use the title Table (Tab.) and a number

Mathematical formulations:

m = 1,
k ≤ 0,
a1 + b1 + c1 + d1 = 0,
2(p + 1)
k = 1, 2, …, n
