A 7-step process for publication in a scholarly magazine

We will then send in our manuscripts for publishing in a peer-reviewed magazine. During my seven years of research and education, I have found some deficiencies in the way manuscripts are prepared and submitted, which often result in the refusal of research for publishing. If you are conscious of these deficiencies, your odds of your paper being released and your research and professional development increasing.

Addressing PhD candidates and other young scientists, this paper identifies frequent traps and offers useful ways to help them to work more effectively. Whilst there are different kinds of research items, such as brief notices, reviews, etc., these guides concentrate on producing a complete paper (including a bibliography review) using either quality or quantity methods, from the perspectives of MST.

Lettering for scientific magazines is a very competition-intensive business and it is important to realise that there may be several grounds for refusal. In addition, the procedure of reviewing a paper is an important part of the paper, as no author can easily recognize and tackle all the problems with a work. Don't be rash when you submit your paper for publishing.

That mystery does not mean that you have to submit your script for publishing the minute you finish it. Writers sometimes depend on the fact that they always have the ability to correct the deficiencies of their work after the publisher's and reviewers' feedbacks have been used to identify them. I believe that a logic stream of actions prevails in any research and should also be followed in the preparation of a work.

This includes careful reference to your script at different points in time and perhaps in different places. This is indispensable in research and will help to find the most frequent issues and deficiencies in the script that could otherwise be ignored. I emphasize all parts of the script where I would like the reviewer to be completely clear.

Choose a suitable place for your work. Scientists can enrol for trainings, study from leading figures in research and publishers and participate in current discussions. I' m also asking my peers for the most appropriate magazine to send in my paper; searching for the right magazine for your paper can greatly increase the chance of getting your paper accepted and make sure it will reach your audiences.

Writers should include the headline of the paper, a brief summary and the area of research to obtain a listing of the most appropriate periodicals for their work. See Knight and Steinbach (2008) for a detailed debate on the selection of a suitable magazine. Inexperienced researchers sometimes decide to apply to two or more peer-reviewed periodicals at the same timeframe.

The research ethic and policy of all scientific periodicals suggest that writers should only ever send one paper to one of them. Otherwise, there may be embarrassing and copyrights issues for the writer, the company and the magazines concerned. Please review the goals, volume and authoring rules of your magazine with caution.

After reading and re-reading your paper thoroughly several of the time, receiving input from your peers and identifying a goal magazine, the next important thing is to check the goals and volume of the magazines in your area. This improves the chance that your script will be approved for publication.

A further important stage is to down-load and adopt the authoring guide and make sure that your script complies with it. A number of publishing houses have reported that one in five articles does not meet the stylistic and editorial standards of the targeted magazine, which could set standards for illustrations, spreadsheets and links. It is the first element of a script that a magazine reader sees.

It should summarise the key topic of the paper and should mirror your theoretical input. Get your script, complete with full text, reference lists, spreadsheets and illustrations, edited by a team of professionals (not just proofreaders). It is recommended that you have your work edited by a qualified editor before you submit a script for publishing.

Articles that have been sent to a peer reviewer are subjected to critical scrutiny by the editors before being chosen for one. Correctly spelled, processed and presented text will be error-free and comprehensible and will convey a professionally designed picture that will help to make sure your work in the field of publication is taken seriously.

This includes proof-reading your own manuscripts for correctness and literal sense (avoid unnecessarily or normatively describing them as "it should be noted here" and "the author believes") and mailing them for processing only if they are in every respect completely and willing to be published. Professionals demand high editorial costs, and it is just not affordable for them to do more than one round of processing for your work.

Apps like spell checking and spell checking in Microsoft Word or using syntax are certainly deserving of being applied to your articles, but the advantages of correct processing are indisputable. Send a covering note with the script. Do never overlook the importance of writing to the correspondent or editor-in-chief of the magazine.

Accordingly, the contents of the covering note are also worthwhile. A few unexperienced academics include the summary of the articles in their letters and think that it is enough to give the reason for the publishing; it is a best avoidable practise. Firstly, a good covering note describes the principal topic of the document, secondly the newness of the document and thirdly the relevancy of the document for the magazine.

My suggestion is to limit the covering note to half a page. It is even more important that those co-workers and co-workers who reviewed the paper before submitting the paper and gave feedbacks should be confirmed in the brief. As a rule, writers and editors-in-chief determine the adoption of a script as the object of "revision and resubmission" on the basis of the expert (s) recommendation.

This may require large or small changes to the script. Firstly, it is important to approach the reviews carefully; secondly, it is essential to take into account all feedback submitted by the peer reviews and to prevent oversight; thirdly, the re-submission of the edited script must take place within the time limit set by the magazine; fourthly, the review procedure may involve several laps.

Firstly, the updated script highlights all changes made based on the experts' advice. Secondly, a note that lists the authors' answers, showing that they have taken into account all the critic and editor's doubts. Writers of the script may or may not accept the reviewers' commentary (typically, consent is recommended) and are not always required to follow up their advice, but they should in any case give a well-founded explanation for their approach.

In view of the ever growing number of papers that are being filed for publishing, the preparation of a good enough paper to be acceptable to a magazine can be discouraging. Highly effective magazines receive less than 10 per cent of the contributions entered, with the rate of acceptability for reprints or specific themes generally exceeding 40 per cent.

Scientists may have to accept that their papers are declined and then revised to be submitted to another magazine before the paper is adopted. However, following these suggestions could help PhD candidates and other scientists increase the probability that their work will be made public, and this is the keys to a prolific, thrilling and worthwhile scientific careers.
