Journal Publication Process

The publication process might seem a bit complicated to researchers, particularly the early career researchers. Most research novices feel pressured to secure a journal publication fairly early in their career.

When considering how to publish a journal article, authors need to be strategic, authentic, and fairly innovative. This section covers all aspects researchers need to consider at the pre-publication stage: planning the research paper, selecting the best journal for your manuscript, dealing with peer review, ensuring compliance to guidelines and ethics, and using editorial services to enhance the chances of acceptance of your manuscript.

I confirmed the difference of the OA model and the subscription model in an article on Editage Insights. According to the article, most of journals provide both options, but I think some journals accept only one of them. Is the any point or keyword to distinguish that?

I submitted my paper to a journal on the 10th of November. It got rejected in 4 days so I wrote a query and my paper was back to "with editor" status again. The editor replied to my email explaining that the rejection was the result of an error. From the 18th of December, the status is "under editor evaluation." What does that mean?

I have published my Japanese paper in a journal 1 year ago.
