43
Hints for Authors
Do
Review recent issues to determine
hot topics
Make sure the papers focus is
relevant to the journals mission
(industrial or business-to-business
topics)
Make sure the theoretical basis of
the manuscript is clear and well
documented
44
Hints for Authors
Do
Make sure the experimental design
and analysis are appropriate for
the topic and for the audience.
(IMM is NOT interested in purely
methodological or analytical papers)
Limit references to the most
significant and relevant to the
paper (Papers that are primarily
literature reviews are not desired)
45
Hints for Authors
Do
Include all contact information
(including e-mail) in all
correspondence (for all authors)
Contact editors prior to submission
to see if the manuscript fits the
journals objectives
Utilize the journals tracking
number in all communications
46

Follow all procedures for paper
submission
Number all pages to make it easier

alone publications
Cite every possible reference, but
only the most relevant
Argue with reviewers; address
their concerns in a positive manner
48
Hints for Authors
Dont
Submit papers where the majority
of the hypotheses are not

pleasant e-mail will suffice
49
