Editorial Policy

Current EJP/ECP Charter (updated version, 2016)

Technical progress and changes to publishing environment inspired the following updated version of the EJP Charter.

  • Electronic Journal of Probability and Electronic Communications in Probability publish papers in all areas of probability.
  • The journals are free to authors and readers.
  • EJP/ECP will accept only papers of high quality both in terms of scientific contents and the presentation of the results (including the graphical aspect of the work).
  • The refereeing process will follow the traditional conventions. The refereeing time varies enormously but there will be no delay in publication after the paper is accepted. Authors concerned with the fast dissemination of their results are advised to submit their work to Math Arxiv.
  • The ​Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the Bernoulli Society, the publishers of the journals,​ will ensure long term preservation of the papers.

Original EJP/ECP Charter

  • Electronic Journal of Probability and Electronic Communications in Probability publish papers in all areas of probability.
  • The electronic version of the journals is free to individuals.
  • EJP/ECP will accept only papers of high quality both in terms of scientific contents and the presentation of the results (including the graphical aspect of the work).
  • The refereeing process will follow the traditional conventions. The refereeing time varies enormously but there will be no delay in publication after the paper is accepted. Authors concerned with the fast dissemination of their results are advised to submit an abstract of their work to Probability Abstract Service together with a link (URL) to a copy of their paper in a publicly accessible directory on their own computer.
  • The contents of the journals will be archived in some way besides electronic files (CD-ROM, hard-copy, etc.). The official archived article record will consist of three versions: TeX, dvi and postscript.
  • The editors will take precautions to ensure safety of the papers. For example, the electronic files will be stored at multiple sites and on various media.
  • The editors will try to provide a printed version of the journals (at a cost) if there is enough interest among probabilists who cannot access the journals in the electronic way.
