REVIEWER GUIDE

JMSM-JOURNAL OF MARKETING AND STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT

General

1. Is the manuscript subject suitable to the the journal?

2. Are there any potential biases in reviewing this manuscript?

3. Does the manuscript address an important problem?

4. Has the manuscript been previously published?

 

The Abstract

5. Does the Abstract appropriately summarize the manuscript?

6. Are there discrepancies between the Abstract and the remainder of the manuscript?

7. Can the Abstract be understood without reading the manuscript?

 

The Introduction

8. Is the Introduction concise?

9. Is the purpose of the study clearly defined?

10. Do the authors provide a rationale for performing the study based on a review of the marketing/strategic management literature? If so, is it of the appropriate length?

11. Do the authors define terms used in the remainder of the manuscript?

12. If this manuscript is Original Research, is there a well-defined hypothesis?

 

The Methods Section

13. Could another investigator reproduce the study using the methods as outlined or are the methods unclear?

14. Do the authors justify any choices available to them in their study design (e.g. analytic tools, or statistical methods)?

15. If the authors have stated a hypothesis, have they designed methods that could reasonably allow their hypothesis to be tested?

 

The Results Section

16. Are the results clearly explained?

17. Does the order of presentation of the results parallel the order of presentation of the methods?

18. Are the results reasonable and expected, or are they unexpected?

19. Are there results that are introduced that are not preceded by an appropriate discussion in the Methods section?

 

The Discussion Section

20. Is the discussion concise? If not, how should it be shortened?

21. If a hypothesis was proposed, do the authors state whether it was verified or falsified? Alternatively, if no hypothesis was proposed, do the authors state whether their research question was answered?

22. Are the authorsconclusions justified by the results found in the study?

23. If there are unexpected results, do the authors adequately account for them?

24. Do the authors note limitations of the study? Are there additional limitations that should be noted?

 

Figures and Graphs

25. Are the figures and graphs appropriate and are they appropriately labeled? Would a different figure better illustrate the findings?

26. Do the figures and graphs adequately show the important results?

27. Do arrows need to be added to depict important or subtle findings?

28. Do the figure legends provide a clear explanation that allows the figures and graphs to be understood without referring to the remainder of the manuscript?

 

Tables

29. If there are tables, do they appropriately describe the results? Should one or more tables be added?

 

The References Section

30. Does the reference list follow the format for the journal?

31. Does the reference list contain errors?

32. Have the authors appropriately represented the salient points in the articles in the reference list? Alternatively, have the authors misquoted the references?

33. Are there important references that are not mentioned that should be noted?

34. Are there more references than are necessary?

 

Summary Opinion

35. The reviewer should provide a short paragraph that summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of the manuscript.

36. The actual Recommendation (e.g., recommend to Accept, Accept Pending Revisions, Reconsider After Major Revisions, or Reject) should not be stated in this paragraph, which is sent to the authors, but should be indicated separately in a ‘‘Confidential Note to the Editor.’’

FOR THE ATTENTION OF AUTHORS
CROSSREF REQUIREMENT
This is an important requirement for all of the accepted papers. Thus once your manuscript is finally accepted for
publication in our journal, the authors should do the following requirement.
All the references in the manuscript should have its DOI link. Please follow the step-by-step procedures
to put the DOI link:

1) Register your e-mail ID in
http://www.crossref.org/requestaccount/

2) Enter your registered e-mail ID and all the references in the boxes in

http://www.crossref.org/SimpleTextQuery/

ex ) Let’s enter the following two references together and then pressSubmitbutton. You will receive two
DOIs in blue color below for them, respectively.

F. Hou, L. X. Cai, J. She, P. Ho, X. Shen and J. Zhang, “Cooperative multicast
scheduling scheme for IPTV over IEEE 802.16 Networks,” IEEE Transactions on
Wireless Communications, vol. 8, no. 3, pp. 1508-1519, Mar. 2009.

doi:10.1109/TWC.2009.080417
Thuy Nguyen and Grenville Armitage, “A survey of techniques for Internet traffic
classification using machine learning,” IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials,
vol. 10, no. 4, pp. 56-76, November, 2008.
doi:10.1109/SURV.2008.080406
Important : If any reference does not have its own DOI, no DOI will be returned. For that case, you don’t need
to put a DOI for the reference. But almost all of journal papers have their DOI. Thus if the CrossRef’s automatic
DOI searcher fails to find a DOI, you SHOULD google with the title of the journal paper. For instance, the DOIs
of the following journal papers couldn’t be found by the CrossRef automatic DOI searcher but we could find the
DOIs by googling with the title of the journal paper:
[1] Zabin. F, Misra. S, Woungang and I, Rashvand. H,F. Ma, N.-W, Ahsan Ali, M, “REEP:
data-centric, energy-efficient and reliable routing protocol for wireless sensor networks,” IET
Communications, vol. 2 , no 8, pp. 995-1008, 2008.

and Distributed Computing, vol. 67, no. 3, pp. 02-317, 2007.
http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1224643

3) Now you just add the DOIs link to the references in your paper. When you add the DOI in the
reference, you should attach a prfix,
http://dx.doi.org/ to the front of each DOI.
ex) For the two examples,
F. Hou, L. X. Cai, J. She, P. Ho, X. Shen and J. Zhang, “Cooperative multicast
scheduling scheme for IPTV over IEEE 802.16 Networks,” IEEE Transactions on
Wireless Communications, vol. 8, no. 3, pp. 1508-1519, Mar. 2009.

http://dx.doi.org/doi:10.1109/TWC.2009.080417

Thuy Nguyen and Grenville Armitage, “A survey of techniques for Internet traffic
classification using machine learning,” IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials, vol.
10, no. 4, pp. 56-76, November, 2008.
http://dx.doi.org/doi:10.1109/SURV.2008.080406
4) Last , you should put a DOI link tag name, Article (CrossRef Link)” as following:

You just place the cursor on the DOI link and click the right button of your mouse and then select theHyperlink

Editmenu. Enter the tag name Article (CrossRef Link)” in the text box.
