The “International Journal on Engineering Research and Empirical Studies” (IJERES) provides researches and engineers with an overview of all areas in engineering and empirical studies.
The scope of the “International Journal on Engineering and Empirical Studies” focuses on engineering fields where the research papers pinpoints the empirical studies and validate the research outcomes, the IJERES topics will include different engineering branches in Civil, Architectural, Chemical, Automatic, Agricultural, Biological & Bio systems, Communications, Forestry, Gas, Geological, Geometrics, Industrial/Manufacturing, Mechanical, Metallurgical, Mineral, Mining, Naval, Petroleum, Software, Water resources and system engineering studies. IJERES will receive papers also related to empirical studies which should include the phases of the empirical studies introduction, deduction, testing and finally evaluation the outcomes.
The papers should include the theoretical part and the practical part of the investigated issue in the research and the paper will be reviewed by our scientific editorial committee.
The “Engineering Research and Empirical Studies (ERES)” is a Journal focusing entirely on publishing full sets of conference proceedings, enabling the conference delegates to publish their papers in a dedicated online issue on IEREK’s website. Moreover, individuals can also submit their research and choose their advisors from the scientific advising committee. When their researches are valid to be published at the (ERES), reviewing committee will review them before the final publication.
The “Engineering Research and Empirical Studies (ERES)” publishes conference proceedings with an emphasis in all areas of the Environmental Sciences, Sustainable Development, Arts and Humanities.

- Copyright on any open access article in a journal published by IEREK is retained by the author(s).
- Authors grant IEREK a license to publish the article and identify itself as the original publisher.
- Authors also grant any third party the right to use the article freely as long as its integrity is maintained and its original authors, citation details and publisher are identified.
In submitting an article (‘article’) to any of the journals published by IEREK authors are requested to certify that:
They are authorized by their co‐authors to enter into these arrangements.
- They warrant, on behalf of themselves and their co‐authors, that:
- The article is original, has not been formally published in any other peer‐reviewed journal, is not under consideration by any other journal and does not infringe any existing copyright or any other third party rights;
- They are the sole author(s) of the article and have full authority to enter into this agreement and in granting rights to IEREK are not in breach of any other obligation. If the law requires that the article be published in the public domain, they will notify IEREK at the time of submission;
- The article contains nothing that is unlawful, libelous, or which would, if published, constitute a breach of contract or of confidence or of commitment given to secrecy;
- They have taken due care to ensure the integrity of the article. To their ‐ and currently accepted scientific ‐ knowledge all statements contained in it purporting to be facts are true and any formula or instruction contained in the article will not, if followed accurately, cause any injury, illness or damage to the user.
Please make sure you have the following information available before you submit your manuscript:
Full names and email addresses of all co-authors on your manuscript.
A cover letter that includes the following information, as well as any additional information requested in the instructions for your specific article type (see main manuscript section above):
An explanation of why your manuscript should be published in Engineering Research and Empirical Studies – ERES
- An explanation of any issues relating to journal policies
- A declaration of any potential competing interests
- Confirmation that all authors have approved the manuscript for submission
- Confirmation that the content of the manuscript has not been published, or submitted for publication elsewhere (see our Duplicate publication policy)
- If you are submitting a manuscript to a particular special issue, please refer to its specific name in your covering letter
You may suggest potential peer reviewers for your manuscript. If you wish to do so, please provide institutional email addresses where possible, or information which will help the Editor to verify the identity of the reviewer (for example an ORCID or Scopus ID). Intentionally falsifying information, for example, suggesting reviewers with a false name or email address, will result in rejection of your manuscript and may lead to further investigation in line with our misconduct policy.
Excluding peer reviewers
During submission you may enter details of anyone who you would prefer not to review your manuscript.
Introduction to peer review
Peer review exists to ensure that journals publish good science. This benefits the entire scientific community.
Sometimes scientists find the peer review process intimidating because it can lead to the rejection of their manuscript. Keep in mind that revisions and improvement are part of the publication process and actually help raise the quality of your manuscript.
Peer review is a positive process
Peer review is an integral part of scientific publishing that confirms the validity of the science reported. Peer reviewers are experts who volunteer their time to help improve the journal manuscripts they review-they offer authors free advice.
Through the peer review process, manuscripts should become:
More robust: Peer reviewers may point out gaps in your paper that require more explanation or additional experiments.
Easier to read: If parts of your paper are difficult to understand, reviewers can tell you so that you can fix them.
More useful: Peer reviewers also consider the importance of your paper to others in your field.
Of course, in addition to offering authors advice, another important purpose of peer review is to make sure that the manuscripts the journal eventually publishes are of high quality. If a journal publishes too many low-quality manuscripts, its reputation and number of readers will decline.
Your journal manuscript can be rejected if it:
Lacks proper structure
- Lacks the necessary detail for readers to fully understand the authors’ analysis
- Has no new science
- Does not clearly explain which parts of the findings are new science, versus what was already known
- Lacks up-to-date references
- Contains theories, concepts, or conclusions that are not fully supported by its data, arguments, and information
- Does not provide enough details about materials and methods to allow other scientists to repeat the experiment
- Lacks clear descriptions or explanations
- Hypotheses tested
- The experimental design
- Sample characteristics and descriptive statistics
- Describes poor experimental design, or faulty or insufficient statistical analysis
- Has poor language quality
Publication is a difficult process, and you must be prepared to defend your submission against rejection from both editors and peer reviewers. However, do not be too persistent. Generally, only one letter defending your submission will be accepted for each of the review stages (editorial review and peer review). If you are unsuccessful after sending a response letter, then you should strongly consider selecting another journal.
When revising your manuscript and responding to peer review comments:
- Address all points raised by the editor and reviewers
- Describe the revisions to your manuscript in your response letter
- Perform any additional experiments or analyses the reviewers recommend (unless you feel that they would not make your paper better; if this is the case, explain why in your response letter)
- Provide a polite and scientific rebuttal to any points or comments you disagree with
- Differentiate between reviewer comments and your responses in your letter
- Clearly show the major revisions in the text, either with a different color text, by highlighting the changes, or with Microsoft Word’s Track Changes feature
- Return the revised manuscript and response letter within the time period the editor tells you
