I submitted my paper to Current Applied Physics on 14.07.2018 and the status was "Submitted to journal" for almost 10 days. It then changed to "With Editor" on 23.07.2018 and then to "Decision in Process" without any mention of peer review in between. What does this mean? Are they going to reject my paper?

My case report, which was edited by Editage, received a minor revision request by a journal. It was rather an easy comment, so I resubmitted the case report after revision immediately. Then the status changed to “Decision in process”. However, I have heard nothing from the journal for 3 weeks, though I assumed I would receive a response in a few days. I am anxious if there is any problem with the paper or if it will get a rejection. Can I have any advice for this situation? Thank you.

I submitted my manuscript via the ScholarOne system. The online status was “Not Assigned” at the beginning. Two days later, it changed to “EO: XX Status is Under Review.” A week after my submission, the status became “Awaiting Final Decision.” I wonder if my manuscript was rejected by the journal editor directly without going through peer review?

I made a manuscript submission to a journal, and it was accepted after minor revision. However, the defined term was expired because the process was not forwarded due to an incomplete documentation. Now the necessary documents are ready, I am going to submit the same manuscript to the same journal as a new submission. Then I intend to mention the above circumstance in the cover letter; that my manuscript was accepted once by the journal but it was expired. Is such behavior impolite? If I can...

My paper was submitted to a ScholarOne journal and the submission status changed in the following way: "Awaiting review assignment" for 2 weeks, "Awaiting AE recommendation" for 1 week, and now it is "Awaiting SE decision." Should I expect a desk rejection?

My paper has been accepted for publication. I have sent the final version to the editor for galley proofs, but I just found an error in one figure. I used two similar figures (e,i., Figure 1 includes two figures a and b, but I put two similar figure 1b). However, this mistake did not occur in the first and second submission. During checking for the final submission, I have resized some symbols in this figure and made this mistake when transferring it into the manuscript. May I correct this...

I submitted a manuscript to an Elsevier journal. It was rejected with an editorial decision and I was suggested to transfer to other journals. However, the recommended journals are clearly do not match with my manuscript in terms of the field or target. I have a doubt if they are actually suggesting me to transfer. If I do not use the transfer service, do I need to inform them about that?

In Japan, most often, society members submit manuscripts to the journal of the society to which they belong. Are there many rules for becoming a member in international societies? Also, I would like to know some tools if any (other than special field or impact factor), to select a suitable journal to submit a manuscript. It would be helpful if you could advise how to distinguish reputed international journals from predatory journals (with publication fees).

I have submitted a paper to a Springer journal. Expected number of days for first decision is 74 days. It's been more than 74 days now. After submitting the paper, statuses changed as follows: Submitted to journal > With editor > Decision in process> With editor. These changes occurred within 10 to 15 days after submission.1) Are there any chances for my paper to get accepted?2) I couldn't find the mail id in my login for sending a query. In that case, what should I do? How can I mail...
