Q: Can you suggest journals which have a fast publication cycle?
My paper needs to get accepted by a journal urgently. Do you think there is a journal that can accept my paper by May? I conducted on experiment on cardiac and did in vivo, in vitro and did reasearch in molecular biology. Impact factor will be good around 1.0-3.0, please recomment me considering this fact. Thanks for the help.
There are rapid publication journals that have really short review times. While it is difficult to recommend a journal for your paper, you can go through this list of rapid publication journals from various fields and check if any of them would be suitable for your paper.
Once you shortlist a few rapid publication journals in your field, go through their website carefully and find out how much time they take from submission to final decision. Keep some buffer time as you would not know whether the paper will be accepted or rejected. If it is rejected, you will have to submit it to another journal. To avoid rejection due to mismatch with the journal's scope and readership, send pre-submission inquiries to a few journals at the same time. Submit to a journal that shows interest in your paper. That way, you'll save time.
However, you have to be really cautious when you select rapid publication journals. Taking advantage of the immense competition and pressure to publish, some publishers entice authors with a false promise of publication success but are really more interested in stealing original ideas. To begin with, choose the right journal to avoid falling prey to predatory or bogus publishers. Pay close attention to the information on the journal's website. Watch out for promises that may sound too good to be true.
