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 am writing on the topic "Teachers' attitude towards the availability and utilization of electronic media in teaching biology in secondary schools." Thanks

I have contributed 10 pages to a book by several co-authors that was published recently. This book was about raising awareness about a problem and did not include original results; hence it was published without peer review. With this content only, it cannot be an academic paper. Hence, I am trying to write a journal article in a more structured based on this content. If it is self-plagiarism or duplicate publication, I would not like to start.  If it is acceptable, how can it be used?

I have written a paper which includes some electronic design calculations. Will it be considered as a research article or case study?

I am a Ph.D. student in the department of political science and now I am conducting a research in my field of study but I don't have prior experience of publishing articles in international journals. Therefore, can you recommend a journal where I can submit my paper?

I have a question about informed consent for case reports. I have obtained a general consent from all patients. This is written in Japanese, collected from all hospitalization cases, and agrees to the use of clinical data, test data, and graphic data for both conference or journal publication purposes. Can this be considered as an agreement for the actual manuscript submission? If a target journal accepts a Japanese format, should I obtain informed consent once again?

My research topic is "genomic analysis". I think my topic is not excellent, however, I would like to publish it in an SCIE journal. It was just rejected by PLOS ONE. Is there any suitable journal?  I have another manuscript. It is a colon cancer paper made by multicenter perspective and n is 60 people. However, data is not positive. Could you please recommend me any possible SCIE journal(over IF 3)?

I happened to see a published paper around a conference poster at a conference presentation. Wouln't that be a breach of copyright? Also I have seen pdf files of published papers on ResearchGate. Is that acceptable? I assume if the paper is published open access, it would not be a problem. Is my understanding correct?

I submitted my manuscript to the Journal of Land Degradation and Development which is an online Wiley journal. My submission was done on 24 January 2018. After one day, the status changed to "Under Review." Does this mean that my manuscript has been given to reviewers or it still with the editor for internal or desk review? I am a bit confused about how the status can be change to"Under review" just one day after submission. Please help me understand the real meaning of this status. Many thanks...

Hello! I have submitted my manuscript to a journal via the online submission system. It’s been 3 months and the status  is showing "Submitted" ever since. While tracking the status I found it has not been sent to reviewers. Also, I sent an inquiry after 1 month of submission and received the reply that it takes 2-4 months to review a manuscript and if accepted, it will be available online in 4-8 months. I sent another inquiry at the end of 2 months of submission regarding the status but...
