Instructions for Authors
  • 1. Papers must be written in English, not previously published and not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors should be careful about copyrights. Generally, republication of the same content of papers originally published in another language (e.g., a Japanese version and an English version) is not permitted. Papers should be submitted via the journal’s online submission system. The file format for electronic submission is MS Word or PDF. Our format template is available here: JJMFE.docx.
  • 2. Writing instructions:
    • The paper must be typewritten (PC/word processor-produced).
    • Papers should not exceed 30 pages.
    • Shorter papers of about 10 pages (including title page, text, notes, tables, figures, and bibliography) also are accepted.
    • For clarity, papers should be organized using headings and subheads to distinguish topics.


    • Figures and tables must be numbered using serial Arabic numerals, called out in the text before the figure/table, and must have titles. The figures/tables should be integrated in the body of the text (without exceeding the limit of 4MB).

The Board’s decision will be immediately communicated to the authors upon finalization. Please note, however, that the referees will remain anonymous and that inquiries regarding details of the reviews will not be accepted.
