Author Guidelines

Submission Process
Manuscripts for Yugoslav Journal of Operations Research (YUJOR) should be submitted online. The submitting author, who is generally the corresponding author, is responsible for the manuscript during the submission and peer-review process. The submitting author must ensure that all eligible co-authors have been included in the author list and that they all have read and approved the submitted version of the manuscript. To submit your manuscript, register and log in to the system.

Accepted File Formats
Authors are encouraged to use the Microsoft Word template or LaTeX template. Using the template file will substantially shorten the time to complete copy-editing and publication of accepted manuscripts.
Microsoft Word: Manuscripts prepared in Microsoft Word must be converted into a single file before submission. When preparing manuscripts in Microsoft Word, we encourage you to use the YUJOR Microsoft Word template file. Pease insert your graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) in the main text after the paragraph of its first citation.
LaTeX: Manuscripts prepared in LaTeX must be arranged in one ZIP folder (including all source files, images and PDF file of the manuscript). When preparing a manuscript in LaTeX, the LaTeX template file must be used.
Supplementary files: May be of any format, but it is recommended that you use common, non-proprietary formats where possible.

Type and Length of Manuscripts
YUJOR accepts the following types of articles for publication (all must be original and can not have been published elsewhere):
   - Research article containing original research results that has not been published elsewhere.
   - Review that comprehensively sums up the current state of research on a particular topic.
Research articles and reviews shall have a maximum length of 20 pages (including references list and apendices). During a potential revisions stage, after peer-review, authors can extend the article length to a maximum of 26 pages to better address the reviewers and editors’ comments.

All submitted articles must be written in English. Both British and American spellings are accepted, as long as one spelling is used consistently throughout the text. Authors whose native language is not English are strongly advised to ensure the grammatical correctness of their paper prior to submission. Papers with serious deficiencies in English may be returned without review.
It is the author’s responsibility to guarantee that the English language is flawless. Therefore, all authors must have their accepted manuscripts proofread by a proficient/native English speaker before we proceed to the next stage of copy-editing.

Structure of the Manuscript
Manuscripts shall have the following ordered elements: title, authors, affiliations, abstract, keywords, MSC, text (introduction… conclusion), acknowledgements, funding, conflicts of interests, and references.
Abstract should summarize the content of the paper. It should be self-contained and understandable by the general OR reader outside the context of the article. It should be free from formulae and references, around 150 words of length.
Keywords should be provided, around six.
Mathematical Subject Classification (MSC) should be provided.
Tables and Figures should be numbered and should have titles and captions. It is the author's responsibility to obtain permission from the copyright owner to reproduce figures and tables that have been published elsewhere. Tables and figures without such evidence are assumed to originate from the author.
Reference Style. Articles shall be submitted using the IEEE reference style.

Submitting a manuscript to YUJOR, authors warrant that it is original material, has not been published elsewhere, and is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere. They also warrant that the sources of any ideas and/or words in the manuscript that are not their own have been properly attributed through appropriate citations and/or quotes, and that they have read, understood, and agree to YUJOR's Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement
