ATI call for editors

Call for Editorial Board Members

The publisher would like to invite you to submit your application to join the Editorial Board of the journal as an Editorial Advisory Board (AB) member. The support of an EAB member will certainly be crucial to the development, quality and success of the journal.

As AB member (general member or affiliated with a certain journal scope area(s)) you could assist in the following ways:
- submitting research material
- reviewing for the journal
- recommending external reviewers
- advising on matters of journal development
- encouraging article submissions to the journal from your affiliated circles
- providing occasional guest editorials or guest editing a special issue
- representing and promoting the journal at conferences

Serving as a member of the board is voluntary. The journal is mainly small-scale, free and open-access. We significantly differ from those printed and open-access journals requiring high submission fees and/or selling full-text articles to their readers. Selected invited or papers in limited special cases are published even free of charge. The journal is published and fully financed by the Prague Development Center and non-for-profit Innovation and Technology Management Academy (ITMA).
Affiliations to our journals, therefore, are not fee-based. However, members can benefit with special conditions for the academic publishing opportunities.

ATI declaration of contribution

To increase transparency we call authors to write correct affiliations and addresses and show the source of funding for their research when it is required by funding institutions. To agree with the authorship and avoid the conflicts we ask for the declaration of contribution from the corresponding author. To avoid extensive self-citation practice we ask authors to use correct and relevant referencing to own research works published earlier.  

The author who submits the manuscript for publication accepts the responsibility of notifying all co-authors of the manuscript being submitted. The corresponding author must fill in and sign the ATI declaration of contribution (in case there are two authors or more), which should be submitted together with the manuscript.
