About the Journal
Focus and Scope
Dynamic Econometric Models (DEM) is an open access and peer-reviewed journal published once a year. DEM aims to present rigorous research works regarding different aspects of time series and panel data techniques for the analysis of macroeconomic and financial data. It intends to integrate both time series techniques, dealing with univariate and multivariate time series models, and panel data models. The journal accepts papers written in English dealing with a wide range of topics that apply to this scope.
Peer Review Process
Two-stage Peer Review Process: an internal review by Dynamic Econometric Models and the process of double blind review, that is two experts independent of the Editorial Office.
The internal review concerns checking if the paper meets the submission criteria of the journal, mainly scope and presentation.
Reviewers’ responsibilities are:
- to assist the editor in making editorial decisions and improving the quality of the published papers by reviewing the manuscript,
- to conduct the review process objectively by expressing views with supporting arguments and indicating the relative strengths and weaknesses of the paper,
- to make a recommendation that the paper may be published, re-submitted with corrections (major or minor) or rejected.
- to complete reviews by the specified deadline or notify the editor that a review will not be able to complete by the deadline,
- to declare all potential conflicts of interest (financial, institutional, collaborative or other relationships between the reviewer and author) to the editor,
- to alert the editor if the manuscript under review is substantially similar to any published work,
- to maintain the confidentiality of all information under review and not to discuss or use idea, methods or findings from review material.
Open Access Policy
The journal offers access to the contents in the open access system on the principles of non-exclusive license Creative Commons (CC BY-ND 3.0).
The act of publishing involves many parties, each of which plays an important role in achieving these aims. It therefore follows that the author, the journal editor, the peer-reviewer, the publisher and the owner of journal have responsibilities to meet expected ethical standards at all stages in their involvement from submission to publication of an article.
Dynamic Econometric Models is committed to meeting and upholding standards of ethical behaviour at all stages of the publication process. Below is a summary of our key expectations of editors, peer-reviewers and authors.
We follow the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)'s Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors. In addition, some key points are listed below.
- The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
- The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
- To act objectively, making decisions about papers based entirely on their relevance, importance and quality.
- The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
- The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
- The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.
- The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication.
- The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.
- The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction.
- To establish reasonable procedure for reconsidering editorial decisions.
- To describe, implement and regularly review policies for handling ethical issues and allegations or findings of misconduct by authors and anyone involved in the peer-review process.
- The journal “Dynamic Econometric Models” implements anti-ghostwriting procedure and strict plagiarism detection policy. In the case of "Dynamic Econometric Models" it is used CrossCheck powered by iThenticate. No plagiarism, no fraudulent data.
- Anti-ghostwriting procedure: the editors consider the “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship” as a sign of very serious scientific misconduct. All the detected cases of the “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship” will be exposed, including notification of relevant institutions. As a result, the publisher of the journal “Dynamic Econometric Models” has introduced procedures to address the phenomena of “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship”. All the authors must fulfill and sign the declaration concerning “ghost-writing” and “guest authorship”. Always be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed.
- To assist the editor in making editorial decisions and improving the quality of the published papers by reviewing the manuscript.
- To conduct the review process objectively by expressing views with supporting arguments and indicating the relative strengths and weaknesses of the paper.

- To maintain the confidentiality of all information under review and not to discuss or use idea, methods or findings from review material.
- All authors must take public responsibility for the content of their paper. The award of authorship should balance intellectual contributions to the conception, design, analysis and writing of the study against the collection of data and other routine work.
- Gather and interpret data in an honest way: Editors, reviewers, readers and publishers have the right to assume that submitted (and published) manuscripts do not contain scientific dishonesty and/or fraud comprising among others fictitious or manipulated data, plagiarised material (either from the previous work of the authors or that of other persons), reference omissions, false priority statements, 'hidden' multiple publication of the same data and incorrect authorship. Authors must not breach any copyright.
- When reproducing figures and/or schemes from previous publications, it is the author's responsibility to seek appropriate permission from the relevant publishers.
- Present a concise and accurate report of their research and an objective discussion of its significance.
- Give due recognition to published work relating to their submitted manuscript by way of correct reference and citation: All sources should be disclosed, and if a significant amount of other people's material is to be used, permission must be sought by the author in accordance with copyright law. An author should not use privately obtained information (for example, information obtained through conversation), or information obtained through the performance of a confidential service (for example, the reviewing of a manuscript), without permission from the person from whom the information originated.
- Declare all sources of funding for the work in the manuscript, and also to declare any conflict of interest (e.g. where the author has a competing interest (real or apparent) that could be considered or viewed as exerting an undue influence on his or her duties at any stage during the publication process).
- Ensure that their submitted articles contain no personal criticism of other scientists; however, criticism of the work of another scientist may be justified; an article may not contain any defamatory or otherwise actionable material.
- To notify promptly the journal editor or publisher if a significant error in their publication is identified. To cooperate with the editor and publisher to publish an erratum, addendum, corrigendum notice, or to retract the paper, where this is deemed necessary. All authors are obliged to provide retractions or corrections of mistakes.
