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 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? As the Research Head, part of my function is to check and receive papers written by the students at the end of every semester. I review them and select those that are publishable. I never include my name in the papers for publication because I feel it unethical. But some researchers allow other faculty members to write their names on the published papers because the...

I have submitted my paper to a medical journal belonging to Elsevier, and received the decision "Resubmission required." At the same time, the journal also recommended an option to submit the supplemental data to Data in Brief. I understand  Data in Brief is a data journal. Is this a standard practice ? That is, is it a norm for a journal to recommend submission to a data journal? I think it would be a duplicate submission when the contents submitted to a data journal is similar to an original...

Can anyone suggest some journals that publish non-empirical conceptual papers with propositions in the field of Organization Behavior/Human Resources? This information is required for the submission of my manuscript as I am unable to find appropriate journals for it.

I am putting together a journal and have received a critique of an author’s work. The critique was well-written, so I am forwarding it for peer review. My question is: should I inform the author whose work was critiqued? Should that author be involved in the publication process at all?
