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 to an Elsevier journal on October 1,2017. The status changed to 'Under review' for around 2.5 months. On Dec. 15,2017, the status changed to 'Decision in Process' and it is stuck at this stage since then. Can I anticipate rejection? How long should I wait for this stage?

I was invited to submit my article to a new journal. Since my article had been rejected by a number of journals earlier, I submitted my paper to this journal. My paper was subsequently published. Before publication, there was no agreement about publication fee. After the publication, I checked the journal website and found the publication fee is mentioned as US$1800. I assumed that I need not pay it, since I was invited and I got no request for payment. But 6 months later, I got an invoice for...

Can a faculty member include his name on the student research published online because the former funded the paper publication?
