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 had submitted my paper to one of the Springer journals in the month of July 2017. After a third revision, I got an email from the editorial office saying that my paper has been accepted for publication. But after two days, the status changed to editor assigned. Could you please tell me what is the meaning of this status? And how I can approach the editorial office regarding this matter? Is it okay to write an email to the editor and ask about the current status?

I defended my master's thesis in February 2016 but the data gathering was done in October 2015 and the final revision was submitted to my university in March 2016. I thought of submitting my thesis for journal publication. Do you think they would still accept it when it's been done 2 yrs ago? I had been very busy after graduation and I never had the chance to submit my research paper for publication. Hope for your enlightenment.

About one month ago, I got an e-mail from the journal editor asking me to revise my manuscript. I thought it was a major revision because I got this email for the first time after submission. However, the reviewers' opinion was that it was an interesting and well written article and no parts need to be corrected. The state of my manuscript is now "accepted" on the "manuscripts with decisions" dated on 05 - Mar - 2018 and under "pending transfer to production" stage. So, I thought the journal...

I submitted my paper last November to a Springer journal in the field of computer science. The submission has passed through the usual workflow of peer review.

I think this is happening because the submission is receiving more reviews. When I sent an inquiry, the editorial office of the journal informed me that...
