Guidelines for Authors
Guidelines for Reviewers
Online submission


Each section in MRD has a different set of guidelines. Authors are encouraged to print out the guidelines for the type of paper they wish to submit and to follow these guidelines very carefully before submitting their paper.

Submission of papers is possible only in electronic form via PeerTrack™, the online submission interface provided by Allen Press. In order to submit a paper, you will have to register in PeerTrack™.
If you already have a Username/Password for the MRD PeerTrack™ interface: Go to Login.
If you need a Username/Password: Go to Registration.

The review process also takes place online, using the same interface. Reviewers can login at any time and work on their assignments at their leisure. For more details, consult the guidelines for reviewers.

Authors agree that their work will be published in MRD subject to the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License. Copyright in articles is retained by the authors.

Papers submitted to MRD must not have been published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. (Exception: Papers previously published in a language other than English may be considered for publication in MRD.)

During the submission process, authors are asked to confirm that the results/data/figures/any significant part of the text in the manuscript have not been published elsewhere, including on the internet, and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. They are alerted to the fact that they must not submit their manuscript elsewhere once they have submitted it to MRD. If any part of the submitted material has been or will be published or submitted elsewhere prior to publication in MRD, the authors must point this out to the Editors. This also applies for material previously published or submitted in a language other than English. Should the Editors find out that significant parts of a paper submitted to MRD have been published elsewhere prior to publication in MRD, even though the author confirmed that this is not the case, the paper will be rejected and the author will be charged for the costs of processing the paper through peer review.

MRD is very much in favor of authors circulating their papers at conferences and on their own and institutional websites. However, please do so only once your paper has been published.
Authors should be aware that conference organizers sometimes publish contributions online prior to the conference. If you submit a paper as a contribution to a conference after you have submitted it to MRD, please inform the conference organizers that they must by no means publish it online prior to its publication in MRD, and that they must afterwards acknowledge that it was first published in MRD and indicate the correct citation.
