Open Journal Systems - ESR Journal

ESR Journal

ESR Journal is created by by a group of researchers from all over Europe and North America with aim of improving the way important results are presented and shared. ESR stands for Early Stage Researchers Journal. This name was chosen because we think that nowadays universities, research institutes and publishers do not pay enough attention to young researchers when they encounter the publication process for the first time. Many surveys of organizations that represent young researchers in many countries show that most of them know very little about scientific research publishing.

Many young scientists are doing top quality research with exciting scientific results, but are frequently ill-prepared for publishing these results. Many young scientists have experienced negative-- sometimes even rude--feedback from editors at major journals in their field. Finding this to be very discouraging behavior, our aim is to provide support and quality feedback for all authors who submit their manuscript to ESR Journal. While young researchers are our target group, we also welcome articles from researchers at any stage of their careers that meet the journal’s technical and ethical standards.

The ESR Journal will follow the highest publishing and ethical standards. We have modeled our submissions and review process on the standards, procedures and software developed by the Public Library of Science (PLOS) and eLife and freely shared with the scientific community.

The open-access ESR journal has the aim to make science publishing more effectively benefit science and scientists. Why have we chosen Open Access? Because we strongly believe that “Open Access truly expands shared knowledge across scientific fields — it is the best path for accelerating multi-disciplinary breakthroughs in research.”*
