  Open Access, No Publication Fee!

The journal’s policy is to accelerate progress in science and technology and to promote the widest readership possible. Therefore, all articles published in Electromechanical Energy Conversion Systems (EECS)  are free of all restrictions on access. The  EECS welcomes article submissions and does not charge a publication fee.


 General

Submission of an article implies that it has not been published previously, or it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that if accepted it will not be published elsewhere in the same form.

All articles should be written in English. All articles would be independently refereed. Manuscripts meeting the requirements will be peer-reviewed on the criteria of originality and quality. If the decision following review is "reject subject to major revision", a revised version may be submitted, but if major issues with the revised version are still identified by the reviewers, it will then be rejected outright. On acceptance, papers may be subjected to editorial changes. Responsibility for the factual accuracy of a paper rests entirely with the author.

Types of article

Research articles, review articles, case studies.

Submission

Our online submission system guides you stepwise through the process of entering your article details and uploading your files. Editable files (Word) are required to typeset your article for final publication. All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for revision, is sent by e-mail.

Referees

Please submit the names and institutional e-mail addresses of several potential referees. Note that the editor retains the sole right to decide whether or not the suggested reviewers are used.

Peer review

Electromechanical Energy Conversion Systems operates a single blind review process. All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor for suitability for the journal. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles.

Submission Requirements

Please ensure that the following items are available:

One author has been designated as the corresponding author with contact details:

• E-mail address

• Full postal address

All necessary files to be uploaded:

Further considerations

• Manuscript has been 'spell checked' and 'grammar checked'

• All references mentioned in the Reference List are cited in the text, and vice versa

• Permission has been obtained for use of copyrighted material from other sources (including the Internet)

• A competing interests statement is provided. If there are no competing interests in their submitted manuscripts, authors should state so explicitly: "The authors declare that they have no conflict of interest." This statement should come prior to the acknowledgements.

• Referee suggestions and contact details provided, based on journal requirements

Submission declaration and verification

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract, a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form. To verify originality, your article may be checked by the Plagiarism Detection Software “iThenticate”.

Possible Changes to Authorship

Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor. To request such a change, the Editor must receive the following from the corresponding author: (a) the reason for the change in author list and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. In the case of addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed.

Funding source

You are requested to identify who provided financial support for the conduct of the research and/or preparation of the article and to briefly describe the role of the sponsor(s), if any, in study design; in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data; in the writing of the report; and in the decision to submit the article for publication. If the funding source(s) had no such involvement then this should be stated.

Language

Please write your text in good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these).

Article structure

The manuscripts should be written in clear, concise and grammatically correct English. The manuscript should be presented in the following order. The recommended organization of an article is: (i) ABSTRACT, (ii) INTRODUCTION, (iii) MATERIALS AND METHODS (or EXPERIMENTAL), (iv) RESULTS AND DISCUSSION, (v) CONCLUSIONS, and (vi) REFERENCES. Headings should be upper case and in bold. Sub-headings should be lower case.

Manuscript should contain the article title, name(s) of author(s) and affiliation(s) and the name and complete mailing address (including telephone and fax numbers and e-mail address) of the person to whom correspondence should be sent. The title of the paper should be short, precise and written without any abbreviations. It should contain an abstract of 150-250 words, without any citation and footnotes. A list of four to six keywords, of which at least three of them should not appear in the title of the paper.

Papers must be fully written in English. Please do not contain the secondary abstract in another language at the end of the manuscript.

Figures and tables should be embedded at the appropriate point within the text, rather than placed at the end of the manuscript.

Tables

Tables should be numbered with numerals (TABLE 1, TABLE 2, etc.)  and cited consecutively in the text. Footnotes to tables should be identified by superscript lower-case roman letters and placed at the bottom of the table.

Figures

Figures should be cited in the text by numerals (Fig. 1, Fig. 2, etc.). High-quality of all figures are needed. Each figure must be accompanied by a legend explaining the contents of the figure. Particular care should be taken to ensure that figures reporting data are unambiguously labeled with regard to units and, in their legends, provide adequate information about the conditions under which the data were obtained.

Equations

Mathematical formulations should be numbered in parenthesis in right hand side of the column and should be typed in word’s equation and symbols not in math type.

References

Bibliographic references in the text appear like [1, 2 ...], using square brackets. References should be numbered consecutively in the text.

These references should be listed together at the end of the paper in numerical order. One and half spacing must be used throughout. It is recommended that the authors utilize Mendeley for entering the references (www.mendeley.com).

Journal references should be arranged as follow:
