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.

In order to choose a legitimate OA journal,...

I have submitted a manuscript to an Elsevier journal. The manuscript went through peer review, after which I submitted the revised manuscript.
