    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who should be the corresponding author? Does it have to be the first author mentioned in my manuscript?+

    The corresponding author is the point of contact for your research paper and is responsible for responding to all requests from the journal during the submission process.  After the paper is published, the corresponding author may also receive correspondences from readers. The corresponding author could be a different person from the first author, but is generally a lead researcher. For more information, please visit ICMJE “Defining the Role of Authors and Contributors.” 

    When can I expect a response from the journal once the journal submission is complete?+

    The journal generally will send you a confirmation for your submitted manuscript on the same day. The decision time taken for publication varies from journal to journal. Ideally, it should be within three months from the date of submission. Some journals have a faster peer-review process and might reach a decision within 2 to 4 weeks.

    The peer review process is a critical component of scholarly and scientific research. It is a formal evaluation and quality control mechanism used to assess the validity, rigor, and credibility of research papers, articles, and academic manuscripts before they are published in journals or presented at conferences. Here's how the peer review process typically works:  Submission: Researchers send their work to journals or conferences.

    Initial Evaluation: The editorial team checks if it fits the publication's scope.

    Peer Review: Experts in the field review the work for quality and relevance.

    Reviewer Feedback: They provide feedback, suggestions, and recommendations.

    Author Revisions: Authors make improvements based on feedback.

    Publication: Accepted work is prepared and becomes part of scholarly literature.

    Can I submit my manuscript in preprint before journal submission?+

    Yes, you can submit your manuscript as a preprint before submitting it to a journal, but there are a few important considerations. For instance, you should check the journal policies, as some journals have specific policies regarding preprints. Before submitting a preprint, it's advisable to review the policies of your target journal. While most journals accept submissions that have been posted as preprints, a few may have restrictions or specific requirements.

    "Resubmission Invited" indicates that a journal has reviewed your initial manuscript submission and has found potential for your work to be accepted after revisions.

    Place a death dagger symbol (†) immediately after the deceased author's name in the byline or author list.

    Add one of the following footnotes, as appropriate, after the author affiliation footnote:
