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 a manuscript and it became “Under Review” in 3 days, then changed to “Ready for Decision” in 10 days, but returned to “Under Review” the next day. After two days it became “Ready for Decision,” but again changed to “Under Review”the next day. This process has been repeated for 3 weeks and the current status is “Under Review” for the fourth time. What does this mean?

I submitted a manuscript in an Elsevier journal around 3.5 months ago. Within 1.5 months of submission of the original manuscript, I got the reviewers' comments. After making corrections I have submitted the revised manuscript around 1.5 months ago. The status was "with Editor" until 2 weeks and then it went to "under review." Around 3 weeks later, they updated the status "under review" again. Usually, peer review for a revised paper takes shorter time compared to the original manuscript. Could...

In my teaching, I have been applying an approach to teaching foreign languages that was inspired by a relatively young and still largely unknown theory of language and language acquisition which in some aspects runs counter to the official foreign language pedagogy. Unfortunately I am not able to conduct an experimental study that would confirm the success of the approach (student enrollments in the program I teach are too low). Nonetheless, I would like to share my experience with the...

I have submitted a manuscript in a Springer journal Circuits, Systems and Signal Processing on October 10, 2017. After 10 days, the status changed to "Editor Assigned". But now it's been more than a month and this status is not changing. What does it mean? My manuscript has still not been sent for peer review. Why is it taking such a long time with the editor? I have never experienced this much time for this stage during my previous submissions.

Hi, I have submitted my manuscript to an Elsevier journal. The status of my submission changed from "Under Review" to "Ready for Decision" on November 8 and it has been constant since then. I think it seems a long time for this step. Is long period a good or bad sign? I do understand that you cannot have exact answer. Just want to know what you think based on your experience.

Is there a limitation for the number of authors and co authors for a single research?

I submitted a manuscript to an international journal and it is currently under review. In the meantime I have planning to present at an international conference to be held in February 2018. For this conference, the 700 - 1000 words’ extended abstract is to be shown in the proceedings. The content of the presentation will be a part of the paper instead of the whole paper. As I said my paper is under review and is not yet accepted, and the initial result is to be informed within December 2017. If...

A month ago, my paper was published in an SCI Journal and it is now on an early view status.  However, I suddenly received an email saying that it is now suspected of plagiarism. I found that there was a similar published paper when I submitted my paper after completing my first draft. What should I do?

I submitted a paper to a mathematical journal on 29/3/2017. Three days later, the status changed to "Under review." However, the status never changed after that. I have sent three inquiries to the journal but received no response till date. What should I do? Yet, every time I send an inquiry, I request read receipts and come to know that they have read my messages! I am confused. Can anybody help me?
