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. Along with the desire to amass expert recognition in academia, authors also want their research to effectively add to the existing body of literature. Thus, researchers often seek to answer the pivotal question of how to publish a paper. 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.
What do researchers really want?

Once we've submitted our manuscripts to a journal, the wait can be awfully frustrating. Accept? Reject? What will the decision be? Haven't we all checked our email countless times—as if it were a ticking time-bomb. Wouldn't it be exciting if, instead of waiting unaware, you could spend your time waiting at a magical fountain that grants journal acceptance?  What do you want as a researcher? What would make your life easier? Share your wishes with us in the comments section, or write to us...

As the volume of scientific publishing is increasing, so is the competitive pressure to get published. The extreme competition in academia and the immense pressure to publish is driving authors towards unethical publishing practices, as is proved by the increasing instances of mass retractions. This article explores the driving force behind unethical practices, different unethical routes to academic publishing, and identifies the co-conspirators behind these scandalous activities.

Hi, I am currently an undergraduate, pursuing my Bachelor degree in International Relations. This subject falls under the Social Science discipline. I want to apply for scholarship for a Masters degree abroad. For that, I need to have some publication which will boost my chance of getting funding. Now I have only one semester left of undergrad, which means only 6 months. During this period, which kind of academic article do you think will be easiest for me to publish? Thanks!

The status of my paper is "Editor invited" for a month. How long should I wait for it to change to "With editor"? What could have happened to my paper? What should I do? Best regards.

I wrote a manuscript to submit it to a journal and I cannot let my supervisor know about it because he doesn't show any interest in it. But I want to publish this work. However, his name is included in the paper as a co-author.

The sample size for my logistic regression analysis was 44896 people, and there are another 1146 people with missing value. Hence I removed 1146 people. Now the reviewer wants me to prove that removing 1146 people won't affect logistic regression analysis result. Now I have to add 1146 people to the data and run regression analysis again with original 44896 people. Then get the main results the same as previous. Do you think this will work?

Hi Dr Eddy, I have recived a reviewer comment that states: "The authors should consider the STROBE statement (STrengthening the Reporting of OBservational studies in Epidemiology) and make sure that their paper follows the standards for reporting observational studies outlined therein (https://strobe-statement.org/index.php?id=strobe-home ). In particular, see the checklist for cross-sectional studies: https://strobe-statement.org/fileadmin/Strobe/uploads/checklists/STROBE_checklist_v4_cross-...

I submitted two papers to a journal 2 days ago, and the current status is "With journal." What does that mean? How long will it take for them to accept my papers? Thanks

I submitted my paper in April. First status update was 'AE not assigned, under review.' After one month, it changed to 'AE assigned, under review.' Very recently, the status changed to 'Evaluating recommendation.' Does this mean the AE is making a decision on the reviews received? Or is he just checking the reviewer recommendations I gave?
