Editorial scope

The journal draws on insights and contributions from worldwide sources in its quest to maximize its usefulness to its readers and hence the benefits to their organizations. Contributors should specify the practical implications of their work for those involved in organization, technology and management practices in construction. Case study articles are also welcome.

Please minimize the introduction and literature review on the history of organization, technology and management in construction and their perception by the public. Instead, focus on models, tactics, metrics, measurement methods, findings etc., addressing how to make these things happen.

The journal is particularly interested in the latest research results and furthering the development of innovative, knowledge-based models and tools, as well as conceptual frameworks (this also addresses the verification and validation of models, tools, and conceptual frameworks) for dealing with present problems in organization, technology and management in construction.

The reviewing process

Each paper is reviewed by the editors and, if it is judged suitable for this publication, it is then sent to two referees for double-blind peer review. Based on the referee's recommendation, the editors then decide whether the paper should be accepted as it is, revised or rejected. The editor and the editorial board may also accept or decline the paper based on his/her own discretionary power.

Copyright

Articles submitted to the journal should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time before submission. Always either indent text or use quotation marks as well as the preferred Harvard style of formatting. Authors submitting articles for publication warrant that the work is not an infringement of any existing copyright and will indemnify the publisher against any breach of such a warranty. For ease of dissemination and to ensure proper policing of use, papers and contributions become the legal copyright of the publisher. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyright material from other sources. The editor may make use of software for plagiarism detection (e.g. iThenticate software) for checking the originality of submissions received. The journal nurtures a zero tolerance policy on plagiarism. The authors, who are discovered to be submitting plagiarism, will be banned from submitting an article to the journal for the next five years.

A summary of submission requirements

Effective communication

The paper should be written and arranged in a style that is succinct and easily followed. The reader should be carefully guided through the paper. Always think who your targeted clients/readers are. An informative but short title, a concise abstract with keywords and a well-written introduction will help to achieve this. Try to give a few sentences about what you are going to write about, at the end of introduction. Also, try to give a few sentences about the main findings at the beginning of the discussion. Simple language, short sentences and a good use of headings will help to communicate information more effectively.

Submissions Process

Authors should note that proofs are not supplied prior to publication and ensure that the paper submitted is complete and in its final form. Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author for correction. The difficulty and expense involved in making amendments at proof stage makes it essential for authors to prepare their manuscript carefully: any alterations to the original text are strongly discouraged. Our aim is rapid publication: this will be helped if authors provide good copy, following the above instructions, and return their proofs as quickly as possible.

Free article access 

Corresponding authors will receive free access to their article through our website (otmcj.grad.hr) and a complimentary copy of the issue containing their article. Reprints of articles published in this journal can be purchased only when proofs are received.

All questions arising after acceptance of the manuscript, especially those relating to proofs, should be directed to otmcj@grad.hr.
