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.

The title of my article is "A Hydroponic Study on Phytoremediation of Arsenic Using Water Lettuce and Water Hyacinth." I want to know the names of some journals in which I can publish my article for free. I won't mind if the journals are of medium quality level as I am also not sure about my article's quality.

I submitted a paper to an Elsevier journal, and some time agao, the status of my paper changed from "Required Reviews Completed" to "Under Editor Evaluation." But it is in the same position for the past one month. Generally how much time does it take for this status to change? Can I I send an inquiry to the editor about the status?

I submitted a paper to a journal (IF is about 4.7), but it became “editor reject” in a few days with the comment that a more specialized journal was recommended. Then I submitted my paper to its parent journal (IF is about 6.6) and it became again “editor reject”, but it recommended a submission to the former journal which rejected my paper, and also a transfer service was attached. When I submitted to the parent journal, I told that my paper was rejected by the former journal. In this case,...

The status has not changed from “With Editor” since 2 months after submission. I submitted a paper on September 7, 2017, and only the date was updated twice (maybe the editor edited) but the status did not change from “With Editor.” The status was last updated on September 16. I sent an inquiry to the journal and they replied that “we are asking the editor about the status. We will inform you once we get a reply.” But it's been once week since, but I haven't received any response. In this case...

I submitted a paper to Elsevier journal 2 weeks back. Now I received an email that the paper is being sent to another editor. When I checked the journal site, I understood that it has moved from a Subject Editor to an Associate Editor . What does this mean?

My article is submitted to an Elsevier journal. Six months after submission, it went to "Under review" for one month. Now it's over one month and the status is showing "Under editor evaluation." What does it mean? Should I send an email to the editor or just wait?

I received an email from the editor, with a quote from the reviewer saying "I regret to inform you that the authors failed to address the points I raised in my previous review of this manuscript; in this case, any further comments on this manuscript is pointless." I sent them an email to ask which point we failed to address because I had made the changes in the manuscript that the reviewer had asked for. The reviewer said that the authors failed to update the reference list. However, I had...

I have received interviewees' consent for a manuscript which I have published. However, currently, I am in the process of publishing a book citing the same interviews and the published manuscript. Do I need to take consent for the book once again from the interviewees?

I submitted a manuscript to a BMC journal in the middle of July, and received a decision of minor revision in August. As the revision was not so difficult, I submitted the revised manuscript in the middle of August. The status was changed to "Editorial assessment" soon, but 2 months have passed without progress since then. The decision was delayed, so I sent a reminder in the middle of October. The editorial office replied in 5 days that the recommendation was just issued by the handling editor...
