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.

I am doing the experiment to observe the impact to animals by adding a compound into their bait. If I make a mouse (which has developed both Alzheimer's disease and stomach cancer spontaneously) take the compound A (its effectiveness is suggested for the two diseases) and observe the results, can I complete one animal experimentation for two different experiment plans as below? Experiment 1. Effect of the compound A for Alzheimer's disease Experiment 2. Effect of the compound A for stomach...

Hi, I found that the online submission system of the journal only has one contact author by default, but what if I have two authors for both contact author and first author? Should I just pick one during submission, and then explain it in the manuscript? Thanks!

I submitted a manuscript to an Elsevier Journal and the status remains "Submitted to Journal" for the last 3 months. The manuscript has not yet been given a reference number either. What should I do?

Our paper, submitted in April to a Springer journal, was under review till September 21. Even though it is past three weeks, there is no reply. We wrote to the editor and were told that the paper is under editorial decision. But the online tracking  system shows the status "Reviews completed."

The status of my article hasn't changed for months, so I sent an email to the journal. They replied as follows "All the invited reviewers have declined the review invitation and considering the specialization of the subject we are unable to get quality reviewers. The editor is working to secure reviewers to review your paper." Is it a good time to suggest them some reviewers? How can I write this email?

I am all-new to medical research and its community. Whenever I look for research opportunities, I find that they require one to be an expert in the field or, at least, to have strong history of publication or research work. I unfortunately do not have either yet, but definitely want to work on that. Even writing a Perspective article requires one to be an expert. Can you please help me understand how to direct myself in the right path to get started? Thank you.
