What Can Happen Without Manuscript Submission Support?

The number of submissions made to journals is huge compared to the very few publications. All the manuscripts undergo rigorous screening and a thorough peer review. And sadly, almost 80% of these manuscripts face desk rejections. Undergoing peer review doesn’t guarantee publication of your journal as there are still high chances of rejection. In general, only 1 out of 10 submissions to journals of repute finally get published.

Final Decision

A Junior editor puts the paper in the publishing template and checks for grammar or plagiarism issues on software. Non-compliance to these leads to instant rejection of the manuscript.

Few concerns at this stage are:

  • Does your manuscript fit the scope of the journal?
  • Is it in line with the journal’s mission and assessment criteria?
  • Does it conform to the set standards for language and format style of the journal?

A Sub Editor checks the relevance of the topic and the contribution of research to the scope of journal.

Few concerns at this stage are:

  • How is the novelty of your paper against reader expectation and impact of the journal?
  • Does it have the necessary details for readers to fully understand and repeat your analysis and experiments?
  • Does it have poorly presented data or a large number of self citations?

The Chief Editor goes through the manuscript thoroughly to check:

  • Whether the sample size is too small or lacking controls
  • If there are any inappropriate statistical tests or a lack of statistics altogether
  • If the methodology used is older or has been surpassed by newer, more powerful methods giving robust results
  • Whether your hypothesis is clear or scientifically valid, and answers the questions posed
  • Whether the conclusions are based on assumptions or are supported by your data
  • After the initial screening, hardly one-fifth of the submissions are finally sent for peer review.

There are three common types of peer review for journal publication:

  • Single blind
  • Double blind
  • Open peer review

A minimum of 2 experts are chosen for the peer review. The peer review is completed once all the reviewers send the journal a detailed report with their comments on the manuscript and their recommendation.

Final Decision

The journal editor or editorial board considers the feedback provided by the peer reviewers and arrives at a decision.
