Feng Shui Journal Selection Guidelines

 

Manuscript Selection


Feng Shui Institute is committed to prompt evaluation and publication of submitted papers. Manuscripts and Letters to the Editor for Feng Shui Institute should be emailed to editor@fengshuiinstitute.org. Our submission and review process is fully electronic. We do not accept submissions by postal mail.


Authors will be notified of decisions by email only. Repeated submissions of the same manuscript will not be acknowledged. Membership in Feng Shui Institute is not a factor in selection of manuscripts for publication. Feng Shui Institute treats all submitted manuscripts as confidential documents. Feng Shui Institute also instructs and expects our Board of Reviewing Editors and reviewers to treat manuscripts as confidential material. Our peer review process is also confidential and identities of reviewers are not released.

 
All papers are assigned to the editor and are rated for suitability by members of Feng Shui Institute's Board of Reviewing Editors. The editor at Feng Shui Institute considers this advice in selecting papers for in-depth review. Authors of papers that are not selected are notified promptly, within about 2 weeks.
 

Submission Requirements and Conditions of Acceptance
 

Authorship
 

All authors must agree to be so listed and must have seen and approved the manuscript, its content, and its submission to Feng Shui Institute. Feng Shui Institute will send an email to all authors to confirm receipt of each paper. Submission of a paper that has not been approved by all authors may result in immediate rejection without appeal. Any changes in authorship must be approved in writing by all the original authors. All authors of accepted manuscripts are required to affirm and explain their contribution to the manuscript, agree to the conditions of publication including the availability of data and materials, and declare any conflicts of interest.

 
Conflict of Interest
 

Authors must agree to disclose all affiliations, funding sources (if any), and financial or management relationships that could be perceived as potential sources of bias, as defined by Feng Shui Institute's conflict of interest policy.
 

Prior Publication
 

Feng Shui Institute will not consider any paper or component of a paper that has been published or is under consideration for publication elsewhere. Distribution on the Internet may be considered prior publication and may compromise the originality of the paper as a submission to Feng Shui Institute, although we do allow posting of research papers on the authorís own website (or webpage), which should be done after the paper is published by Feng Shui Institute.
 

Related Papers
 

Copies of papers submitted to other journals by any of the authors that relate to the paper submitted to Feng Shui Institute must be included with the submission and, if submitted later, with any revised manuscript. Failure to disclose related papers may lead to immediate rejection at any time.
 

Data and materials availability
 

All data necessary to understand, assess, and extend the conclusions of the manuscript must be available to any reader of Feng Shui Institute. All sample cases involved in the creation or analysis of data must also be available to any reader of Feng Shui Institute. After publication, all reasonable requests for data and materials must be fulfilled. Any restrictions on the availability of data, cases, or materials, must be disclosed to the editor upon submission.
