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 happened to see a published paper around a conference poster at a conference presentation. Wouln't that be a breach of copyright? Also I have seen pdf files of published papers on ResearchGate. Is that acceptable? I assume if the paper is published open access, it would not be a problem. Is my understanding correct?

I submitted my manuscript to the Journal of Land Degradation and Development which is an online Wiley journal. My submission was done on 24 January 2018. After one day, the status changed to "Under Review." Does this mean that my manuscript has been given to reviewers or it still with the editor for internal or desk review? I am a bit confused about how the status can be change to"Under review" just one day after submission. Please help me understand the real meaning of this status. Many thanks...

I have submitted my paper to an English journal managed by a Japanese medical society.

Our target journal recommends using APA style of formatting citations. If our citation style is wrong, the journal will not accept the paper. In our paper, we have unconsiously made the mistake of plagiarism in some parts, so I would like to know the correct manner of citation to avoid plagiarism.

A journal's impact factor changes every year. By that logic, the journal impact factor of my published paper also changes every year. When I report my research performance, which year's impact factor should I use? As I published my paper in 2013, should I use the 2013 IF? Or, should I use the 2018 IF?

I submitted a research article to a Springer journal on 24/12/2017. The status of the paper was "With editor" till 23/01/2018, and the date was once updated on 11/01/2018. On 24/01/2018, the status changed to "Decision in process." What does this imply? Looking forward to your valuable reply.
