What Does Publishing A Research Paper In A World-Class Journal Entail?
The road to publication can be confusing when you’re not sure what’s going on with your research paper. The below-highlighted steps will help give you an idea of the process that you will have to adhere to if you want your research paper to get published in a scopus indexed journals.
Editorial Reviews In-House
When an international journal first receives a submission, there are usually two separate checks to confirm that the article is appropriate and ready for peer review –
Performed by a technical editor to ensure the submission has been completed correctly and is ready for further evaluation. Fuzzy numbers, missing ethical statements, and incomplete author affiliations are common issues that are addressed at this initial stage. Normally, three technical assessments are carried out –
at initial submission,
alongside the first decision letter, and
After a manuscript passes the first check, a subject editor evaluates the article and determines whether the manuscript is in fact within the scope of the journal and if it could potentially meet the required publication criteria. Although there may be requests for additional information and minor edits from the author if necessary, the article will either be rejected by the editor or allowed to proceed to peer review.
Depending on the editorial structure of the journal, the editor who carried out the initial assessment may also oversee the peer review, or another editor with more specific expertise may be appointed. Regardless of the specific review process, the different roles and responsibilities during peer review include –
- Revisions Requested To The Manuscript
The editors evaluate the peer reviewers’ comments and their own expert evaluation of the manuscript to make a decision. Once your editor submits a decision on your manuscript, the journal may review it before formally processing the decision and sending it to you. A technical writer can scan the manuscript and journal comments to ensure that journal standards have been met. At this point, the technical editor will also add requests to ensure that the article, if published, will meet the journal’s requirements for data sharing, copyright, ethical reporting, etc.
- Submission After Making All Required Revisions
Upon receipt of your revised submission, a technical editor will evaluate the revisions to confirm that the journal requests have been properly addressed. Before the article is returned to the publisher for review, the journal must be sure that the article will not have any metadata and reporting standards issues that could hinder publication. The editor may get in touch with you to resolve any serious issues, although minor items may wait until the article is accepted.
- Second Peer Reviewing Process Occurs
When your resubmitted article has passed the required checks, it will be assigned to the same editor that processed it in the first round of peer review. At this point, your article has gone through two rounds of journal checks and one round of peer review. If everything has gone well thus far, the document should look pretty solid both in terms of scientific content and proper reporting standards.
Initial Acceptance Of The Manuscript
Once the editor of the journal is satisfied with the scientific quality of your work, he/she will agree to accept it in principle. Before production and typesetting can proceed, the journal office will perform its third and final technical check, requesting any formatting changes or additional details that may be required.
At this stage, your research paper is formally accepted, and you and your co-authors can celebrate the fact that your articles are accepted. Your article will be published as soon as the journal transforms the submission into a coherently composed and structured scientific manuscript, ready to be read and cited by your peers.
