Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Submission of a manuscript implies that the work has not been published before, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that it will not be submitted to another journal while under review for Croatian Operational Research Review.
The submission process must be carried out by the corresponding author. The corresponding author will receive all correspondence, including an initial acknowledgment and the decision, by e-mail. If the submission is accepted, the contact person will receive instructions for submitting the final version of accepted paper, as well as all figures in TIF or EPS format (for Latex).
All figures must be in TIF or EPS black-and-white format. If the paper is prepared by using Latex program, all fiigures must be sent in EPS format.
Revised manuscripts must be uploaded within 2 weeks (for minor revisions) or 4 weeks (for major revisions) of authors being notified of conditional acceptance pending satisfactory revision. Revisions must still be sent as a .docx file or a single PDF file generated from the revised Latex source file.
If a submission is accepted, the contact person will receive instructions for submitting the final .docx file or the final Latex source of final version of accepted paper, as well as all figures and graphics,
The corresponding author will receive a proof of the paper for checking before it is published. Authors should keep in mind that reading proofs is their responsibility. Corrections should therefore be clear and unambiguous. The main aim of proofreading is to correct errors that may have occurred during the production process, and not to modify the content of the paper. Please correct your galley proofs and return them within 5 working days.
