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 submitted the revised manuscript along with my responses to all the comments of two reviewers. Within two days, the status was changed to "under review," but even after 21 days, the status is still the same. Only the status date was changed. Do you have any comments/suggestions for this situation? Thanks in advance.

I recently wrote a paper on algorithm A that I developed. The algorithm is tested, evaluated on a data set, and the paper is published.I developed another algorithm B and the inputs to this algorithm are the outputs from A. I tested algorithm A and B on a completely new data set and now I have the results. I am planning to write a paper and include algorithm A (with proper referencing) and algorithm B and clearly explain how the combined algorithm advances the field.Will my new publication be...

I have submitted my paper to a Q2 journal of Elsevier and the status changes are as follows:Submitted: 16 May 2018; Under Review: 19 May 2018; Under Editorial Evaluation: 03 June 2018; and very next day (after 12 hours) changed again to "Under Review": 04 June 2018. I am a little bit worried what could be the reason for this. Your kind comments are required for this situation.

My major is in computer science and I submitted a paper about system composition to provide new services. The article is based on the major technologies that have been introduced into this field at present and how the system is configured to transmit data and what service is possible. The final opinion on the submitted paper is a major revision, and I received an e-mail with a comment saying that the reviewers have recommended publication, but also suggest some revisions to your manuscript. But...

After submitting my manuscript to an Elsevier journal on 22 April, it was "Under Review" until 4 May, whereby the status date changed but the "Under Review" remained. On 25 May, the status then changed to "Under Editor Evaluation". Is this normal? Usually I would expect "Reviews Completed" followed by "Decision in Process". Is this standard practice for some Elsevier journals or is my manuscript in trouble since it is going on a different route? Thank you for your advice.

I submitted a manuscript to an Elsevier journal on April 19,2018. The status changed to 'Reviewer Invited' on May. 20,2018. After 10 days , the status changed to 'Ready for Decision.' There was no 'Under Review' status update in between these two statuses.What does this mean?

I submitted a manuscript to a journal A of American Chemical Society through ACS Paragon Plus in the beginning of April. But the editor immediately informed me that my manuscript was not suitable for their journal, and recommended transferring it to their affiliated journal B. I sent a reply accepting their recommendation in the middle of April and I transferred my manuscript to journal B through ACS Paragon Plus after revising the format. Two days later, I submitted the Complete Journal...

The results from our case report lead to two outcomes in different fields. It looks difficult to combine those results in one case report, so I am going to report them separately in two different articles. If I submit two separate case reports to journal(s) based on the two different outcomes, would that be regarded as a duplicate submission? In the first place, is it acceptable to report those results separately?
