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.

Journal editors sometimes ask authors to cite a few relevant articles from the journal to increase their citation count. But what if the editor hands over a whole list of irrelevant articles from the same journal and asks the author to cite them? Read on to find out how to handle such requests.

I submitted a manuscript to a journal, and the status changed to “In editing” one month after submission. At the same time, the sign “Pay to publish” is being displayed. Should I pay at this stage when my manuscript is not yet accepted?

My paper was rejected. The reviewer commented that my English is not good and the logical structure is not sufficient. Also the reviewer suggested me to submit to a top conference. Is this a common case? I have significantly revised my paper so that the readability is improved. (I will ask for a professional service for English.) But I am scared to submit to a top conference, since I do not belong to any institution. Would you give me some advice.

I have submitted my paper to an open access journal. The status changed to “Under review” in 10 days and again changed to “Reviews received” within another 2 weeks. 10 days have passed since then, but I haven't yet been informed of the decision. I have ever heard that in general, the decision and notification is prompt if the result is rejection. I am anxious about how the editor is thinking. In this situation, which consequence can be expected from your experience? Your opinion would be...

A cover letter introduces your submission to the target journal’s editors and gives them a brief overview of its contents and major details. As such, your cover letter should function as a sales pitch to the journal editors. In other words, it needs to sell the notion of why your manuscript deserves to be published in their journal and also how it matches the scope of their journal. This SlideShare will tell you everything you need to know in order to write a great cover letter for your...

I was invited by a journal to be an editor. When I asked how they did found me, they replied that they found my homepage, and that they are a company located in India. I registered as I thought it is an honor to be an editorial board member. The journal's name is “Journal of Comprehensive Nursing Research and Care” which is a bit vague. I was asked by them to cooperate and to submit a paper within 1 month. I read an article on Editage Insights about predatory journals, and now I doubt that they...

I’m going to submit a case report to Lancet, and I want to know if there is any template for the consent form. According to the instructions for authors, the report is expected to be "within 600 words", "references to be within 5 pieces", "pictures to be within 2 pieces" and "consent form should be obtained from the patients or their guardian."

When I went through the PDF preview during submission, there was a line saying "click here to view linked reference" in the file. I clicked on it and got the message "The file 'Manuscript.pdf' is not eligible for Reference Checking and was not processed." What's the reason for this? What should I do?

How to communicate with the journal editor
viewed
Correspondence with authors is an important activity in the day-to-day work of editors. The exchange of information and ideas facilitates the publication process from the pre-submission phase through production and dissemination of accepted articles. Correspondence with the editor creates opportunities to clarify uncertainties and to provide essential information about an article or other work under consideration for publication or accepted for publication. This article describes the content of...

Home based care refers to care given to people with health related problems including HIV/AIDS. What I want to research in this area is the way health organizations can be integrated so that the resources available can be focused on both interventions at the same time, if these organisations can make one pool or basket such that the interventions to be implemented can be financed by that pool. Sometimes you find different organisations implementing different programs but with the aim of...
