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.

Hi, I submitted my paper to The Journal of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) and got major revision. While revising my paper, I removed the fifth author. Now the editor has asked me to explain the reason. How should I explain it appropriately? Do I need to provide any material? Will my paper get rejected because of this? Thank you!

I submitted an image to a medical journal last week, and the status of my manuscript has been "With editor" for a week. What does it mean? Does it mean it hasn't been reviewed yet? What is the normal time period of  the "With editor" status?

I will contact you with the final decision once received." What does it mean? Is there any problem with the manuscript or is this some general internal process followed by the journal?

I submitted a manuscript to Elsevier journal on Jan. 19. I received reviewers' comments on Feb. 15. The reviewers' comments are: Reviewer 1 appreciated the work and said that  it is of potential interest for many useers.He had only a few very minor comments, which could be even addressed at the proofreading stage: one suggested adding a reference, the second required splitting a table, and the last one asked to make a database in our work available for public. Reviewer 2 pointed out a few...

I have sent my manuscript to four different journals in five years. In each journal, I have made the majority of changes suggested by the reviewers. Every time I sent the improved manuscript to a new journal, the reviewers would always look for mistakes in English language and experimental methodology in my manuscript and reject it. All the authors of this paper are Mexican researchers. I'm wondering if this could be because of the nationality of the authors. I have spent a lot of money and got...
