Submission and Peer Review

Everything you need to know about journal submission and peer review processes is covered in the section. This includes answers to the questions most researchers have about the status of their paper and in-depth information regarding tracking the paper's progress from submission to publication. Tips and guidance about responding to peer review comments, resubmitting a paper, or corresponding with the journal editor for inquiry or withdrawal of also form an important part of this section.

Dr. Eddy, My article has been accepted by an Elsevier journal. While proofing, what is the minimum number of comments (with tables and graphs) that should be included? Thank you so much

Dear Sir Eddy, I submitted two research papers in two peer reviewed journals. One says that there is a need for further revision and that the editor "would do the revision himself " and e-mail me for endorsement in July 2017 for possible publication in the September 2017 issue. The other says that my paper has passed the pre-evaluation stage and would be sent for review that will take 6 months to 1 year. Under the circumstances, is there a higher probability that the article would be published...

Does Scopus have any rapid publication journals? Are there any Scopus indexed journals that give a decision within 3 weeks?

Dear Sir, I had submitted my paper to a journal approximately half a week ago. When I submitted, there was no status; it was only showing article received and ADM (Not assigned). Now today, when I checked the status, it showed ADM along with someone's name. But there was no link to contact or email address. Moreover, the name that is mentioned is that of the journal editor as per the website. What does this mean? Is my paper is going to be rejected or is it something else, maybe an initial test...

I have completed my master's thesis. I wanted to get it accepted before my graduation, so I submitted it to a BMC online journal whose process for peer review and publication is usually rapid. The status was unchanged after one month of submission, so I told the journal following things: 1. I want to know the latest status. 2. In case any big delay is happened in peer review process (ex. selecting peer reviewer etc.), I want to withdraw my paper. The editorial office promptly responded to say...

I submitted a paper to Elsevier on Oct. 21, 2016. The status became “Under Editor Evaluation” on Jan. 18, 2017, and then “Decision in Process” on Jan. 22. I thought some revision would be required, but the status was directly changed to “Decision in Process”. Does this mean my paper is likely to be rejected? I’m so anxious about this situation. Would you let me know your view?

Dear Dr. Eddy, My article was submitted to a journal last year and has undergone three rounds of reviews. For the first round, I recieved a major revision and for the next two rounds, I received minor revisions. Around the end of last year, the journal changed its chief editor who was responsible for my article. Then I received a reject letter from the new editor. After contacting him, I was told that he thought it was a new submission and didn't know it had gone through peer review. He also...

I submitted a manuscript and received comments from three reviewers. One of them recommended publication after addressing minor issues. The other two recommended rejection because the manuscript did not give enough credit to one of the references. Therefore, the editor rejected the manuscript. The manuscript was revised based on all comments and resubmitted to the same journal. The editor rejected the revised manuscript. In the rejection letter he wrote, "By separate e-mail, I have asked the...

My paper has been showing the status "Under Review" for more than 120 days. Is this normal?

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?
