• Graphical abstract


    In order to provide our readers with a visual and thus faster and easier overview of the content of a publication, we expect a graphical summary (where possible) to be provided by the author from mid-2022.

    However, we already encourage our authors to provide an additional graphical summary from now on.

  • Mandatory Metadata


    Since June 2021, ORCID* is mandatory for all authors when submitting to EXCLI Journal. It is desirable that the ORCID contains the (current) institution as minimum information, so that each author can be clearly assigned via the ORCID in the metadata.

    If ORCID, addresses or e-mail addresses are missing or incorrect, we reserve the right to reject such submissions due to formal errors.

    *ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) should speed up the submission process. This unique identifier for authors is included as a mandatory field for all contributors in the submission tool.
