A concept of open access

Starting with 2017 the journal became an open access with two options of publication: gold (immediate) or delayed (one year embargo period) open access. In this way we address respect to our network and provide an opportunity to our authors to publish their papers in OA.

Delayed open access is a temporary measure to be available in 2017 in order to prepare our network of authors and subscribers for the complete move towards open access by 2019.

Acceptance rate and turnaround time

Acceptance rate is the ratio of the number of articles submitted to the number of articles published. Acceptance rate for articles submitted in 2016 is 34 per cent.

‘Turnaround time’ is defined as the date from when a manuscript was first received by the journal to the date the author of the manuscript was provided with a first decision. Turnaround time for articles submitted in 2016 is 47 days.

History of the journal

Since the expansion of the recent global financial crisis the recently established international Journal of Governance and Regulation has become focused on market-based topics. The Journal has been established to publish high quality theoretical and empirical studies in governance and regulation with application to both macro and microeconomic issues. Its distinctive focus is original, rigorous research with scholarly contribution and practical applications. We consider this publication as an effective instrument to put in order the debate around the reasonability of implementation of regulation or governance efforts worldwide.

The journal has been established in January 2012 by the publishing house Virtus Interpress to contribute to disseminating the results of high quality, blind peer reviewed papers (research) worldwide.
