Manuscript Preparation Guide

The Time Journals provides rapid publication (monthly) of manuscripts in virtually all fields of human endeavor.

TJ welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meets the general standard of significance and scientific excellence. Papers will be published approximately one month after acceptance.

Electronic submission of manuscripts is strongly encouraged, provided that the text, tables, and figures are included in a single Microsoft Word file (preferably in Arial font).

Submit manuscripts as e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at:, or with the following information:

  • Your name and institution with full address details;
  • Title or name of journal you wish to submit a manuscript to;
  • Title of your paper.

Authors are expected to write out their personal information in a cover letter that should include the corresponding author's full address and telephone/fax numbers and should be in an e-mail message sent to the Editor, with the file, whose name should begin with the first author's surname, as an attachment. The authors may also suggest two or three reviewers for the manuscript (TJ in most cases assigns other reviewers).

A manuscript number will be mailed to the corresponding author same day or within 72 hours.

For all other correspondence that cannot be sent by e-mail, please contact the editorial office at or
