  7. 7. ‘Do I have a story to tell?’ Editors and reviewers look for original and innovative research that adds to their field of study, or immediately impacts patient care. Your conclusions must be sound and based on sufficiently robust data. ‘Is there an audience for my research indings?’ The more original and innovative your research, the more people will be interested. Identifying your audience is a major factor in selecting the right journal to submit your manuscript to.
  8. 8. There are several types of research articles: 1. Letters and rapid or short communications: quick and early communication of significant or original advances, without including too much data or details. 2.Review papers : summarize recent developments on a specific topic, without introducing new data. 3. Full articles : contain significant data, details, developments and outcomes. 4.Microarticle format enables you to publish research output, such as data, software, methods, videos and much more.
  9. 9. I- Find the right journal Finding the right journal for your article can be key to reaching your target audience. | 2 • Take into consideration the type of article you’d like to publish (full length, letter, review, microarticle) • Check the references in your article (especially in the introduction section), to give an indication of possible journals of interest • Read the journal’s aims and scope on the journal homepage • Read or download the journal’s Guide for Authors • Check if the journal is invitation-only; some journals only accept articles ater inviting the author to submit • Check the journal’s performance for review and publication timelines • If you need to publish open access, remember that most journals explain their open access options on the journal homepage • Submit your paper to only one journal at a time
  10. 10. JOURNAL FINDER - Some publishers provide the Journal Finder/selector tool to locates (Springer and Elsevier) journals that most closely match your abstracts. -A journal recommended if it published articles that are highly similar to yours. -A list of relevant articles is generated, and the tool can filter on your preferred criteria, such as open access options, impact factor, review time, acceptance rate and production time. . helpdesk/preparation/1276
  11. 11. JOURNAL METRICS -Journal metrics help you select the most appropriate journal for your article. -Alongside the journal’s scope, editorial board, international outlook and audience, help find the best destination for your research. Different types of journal metrics Look at more than one metric to help you make your decision. You’ll find a dedicated Journal Insights section on many of journal home pages, giving information about the journal’s: • Speed – review speed and online publication time • Reach – geographic location of corresponding authors and journal usage • Impact – impact metrics based on citations received by articles
  12. 12. The Journal Insights section on journal homepage has several impact metrics, all consider citations received per article.

  17. 17. -Some funding bodies or institutions have a policy on public access to research. - It’s important to know the open access policy of your institution or funding body before you decide whether or not to publish open access.
  18. 18. II-Prepare your paper YOUR MANUSCRIPT Title -The title is the main advertisement for your article. Agreat title entices the audience to read on; apoorly-titled article may never reachits target readers. -Your article’stitle should relect its content clearly, enabling readers to decide whether it’srelevant for them. -Makethe title catchyand keep it specific. -Remember, that abstracting and indexing services depend on accurate titles; they extractkeywords from them for cross-referencing.
  19. 19. Why‘The efect of heating the albumen and vitellus of the Gallus gallus domesticus contained in calcium carbonate in H2O to 373.15 K’ when ‘Boiling achicken egg in water’ saysit? Essentially, effective titles: • identify the article’s main issue • begin with the article’s subject matter • are accurate, unambiguous, specific and (when possible) complete • are as short as possible • are enticing and interesting; they make people want to read further
  20. 20. Authors Only authors who’ve made an intellectual contribution to the research should be credited; those who’ll take responsibility for the data and conclusions, and who’ve approved the final manuscript. The order of credited names can vary between disciplines; the corresponding author may not always be the first author. Keywordlist Most journals request a list of keywords; important words that, along with those in the title, capture the research effectively. Keywords are used by abstracting and indexing services; choosing the right ones can increase the chances of your article being found by other researchers. Abstract The abstract is your chance to describe your research in 200-300 words – so use it wisely. Together, the title and abstract should be able to fully represent your article, including for use by indexing services. Many authors write the abstract last, so it reflects the content accurately.
  21. 21. The bodyof the text - Make the introduction brief. - Should provide context and background, but not be a history lesson. - Should state the problem being investigated, its contextual background, and the reasons for conducting the research. - State the questions you’re answering and explain any indings of others that you’re challenging or furthering. -Brifely and logically lead the reader to your hypotheses, research questions, and experimental design or method.
  22. 22. Method:(also called Materials and Methods or Experimental Methods) -This section should be detailed enough that readers can replicate your research, and assesswhether the methods justify the conclusions. -It’s advisable to use the past tense – it’s about what you did – and avoid using the first person, although this will vary from journal to journal. -Ultimately, you should explain how you studied the problem, identify the procedures you followed, and structure this information as logically as possible. -If your methods are new, you’ll need to explain them in detail. If they’ve been published before, cite the original work, including your amendments if you’ve made modifications. -Identify the equipment and the materials you used, specifying their source. -State the frequency of observations and what types of data were recorded. Give precise measurements, stating their strengths and weaknesses when necessary. -Name any statistical tests, so your quantitative results can be judged.
  23. 23. -If your research involved human participants, animals, stem cells or other biohazard materials, you’ll need to include certain information in the ethics statement, such as committee approvals and permission to publish. -You should also explain your criteria for selecting participants. Results -This section should present your findings objectively, explaining them largely in text. -It’s where you show how your results contribute to the body of scientific knowledge, so be clear and logical. -And it’s important not to interpret your results – that comes in the Discussion & Conclusions section. -you can base the sequence of this text on the tables, figures and graphs that best present your findings. Emphasize any significant findings clearly. -Tables and figures must be numbered separately; figures should have a brief but complete description – a legend – that reveals how the data was produced.
  24. 24. Discussion & Conclusions -This is where you describe the meaning of your results, especially in the context of what was already known about the subject. -You can present general and speciic conclusions, but take care not to summarize your article – that’s what the abstract is for. -You should link this section back to the introduction, referring to your questions or hypotheses, and cover how the results relate to your expectations and cited sources. -Do the results support or contradict existing theories? Are there any limitations? You can also suggest further experiments, uses and extensions. -Above all, the discussion should explain how your research has moved the body of scientiic knowledge forward. Your conclusions must be supportable and not extend beyond your results, so avoid undue speculation and bold judgments about impact. -This is also a good place to suggest practical applications for your results, and to outline what the next steps in your research will be.
  25. 25. To summarize, make sure that: • your results directly support your conclusions • you use specific expressions and quantitative descriptions – ‘12 degrees higher’ instead of ‘a higher temperature’ • you only discuss what you defined early in the paper – don’t introduce the reader to a whole new vocabulary. If you missed an important term, go back to the introduction and insert it • all interpretations and speculations are based on fact, not imagination
  26. 26. Acknowledgments -Keep acknowledgements brief, naming those helped with your research; contributors, or suppliers who provided free materials. -Disclose any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that could be seen to influence your results or interpretations. References -New research builds on previously published work, which should always be acknowledged. -Any information that isn’t ‘common knowledge’, or generated by your experiments, must be recognized with a citation; and quoted text should be within quotation marks, and include a reference. -The format of citations and references varies, so you should refer to the Guide for Authors for the journal you’re submitting to.
  27. 27. LANGUAGE QUALITY A scientific article should report your findings and conclusions as clearly and concisely as possible. To achieve this: • Try to avoid unnecessary words or phrases – keep it simple • Use active writing when possible. For example, ‘Carbon dioxide was consumed by the plant’ is passive. Active writing shortens this phrase to, ‘The plant consumed carbon dioxide’ – which is much snappier • Tense is important. For known facts and hypotheses, use the present tense: ‘The average life expectancy of a honey bee is six weeks.’ But use the past tense when referring to experiments you’ve conducted: ‘All the honey bees were maintained in an environment with a consistent temperature of 23°C.’ And also use the past tense to describe results: ‘The average life span of bees in our contained environment was eight weeks.’
  28. 28. Some publishers provide editing services to help ensure that your work is written in correct scientiic English before submission, and that your paper is free of grammatical, spelling, and other common errors. Translation services are also available from or into Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic, Turkish, Russian, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and many more languages.
  29. 29. ILLUSTRATIONS Submitting any illustrations, figures or other artwork – like multimedia and supplementary files – in an electronic format means that we can produce your work to the best possible standard, ensuring accuracy, clarity and a high level of detail. CONTENT INNOVATION Content innovations present your work in a more powerful form. Features such as the Virtual Microscope, Interactive Map Viewer and 3D Molecular Models can increase your article’s value. 10
  30. 30. AUDIOSLIDES - AudioSlides are short, webcast-style presentations that let you present your research in your own words. - Elsevier/PloS/Oxford University Press offer the option of creating your own unique AudioSlides presentation; appearing alongside your published article, it complements your research and gives readers a succinct overview of your article’s content. - AudioSlides are free to access and can be shared – independently of the article – with colleagues, influential bloggers and on social media, including YouTube
  31. 31. GRAPHICAL ABSTRACTS -A graphical abstract is a visual summary of your article’s main findings. -Placed along with your article on some publishers’ websites, graphical abstracts also turn up in online search results and help people to see your article’s key points at a glance. - You can use your graphical abstract as a promotional tool by tweeting it, sharing it on social media or sending it to an influential blogger, and it is always linked to your article.

  34. 34. ADDING DATA Sharing research data is a good scientiic practice; sharing makes your scientific findings reproducible and helps others to build upon them. ETHICS -Understanding the boundaries in scientific research and publishing is a key step in making sure your work gets of to the best start. -Scientiic misconduct and breach of publishing ethics can take diferent forms, and be committed knowingly or unknowingly.
  35. 35. • Authorship disputes – deliberately misrepresenting a scientist’s relationship with published work • Conlict of interest – not disclosing to a journal that you have a direct or indirect conlict which prevents you from being unbiased • Plagiarism – passing of another’s work or idea as your own • Simultaneous submission – submitting a paper to more than one publication at the same time • Research fraud – including fabrication (making up research data) and falsiication (manipulating research data, tables or images) • Salami slicing – the ‘slicing-up’ of research that would form one meaningful paper into several diferent papers Details will be displayed later
  36. 36. SEOYOUR ARTICLE - Search Engine Optimization (SEO) helps to ensure that your article appears higher in the results returned by search engines such as Google. -This can mean you attract more readers, gain higher visibility in the academic community, and potentially increase citations.
  37. 37. Tips for SEO include: • Use keywords, especially in the title and abstract • Add captions with keywords to all photographs, images, graphs and tables • Add titles or subheadings (with keywords) to the different sections of your article • Make sure there are as many links as possible to your article, e.g., from your institute’s website, Wikipedia, LinkedIn, blogs and social media
  38. 38. III-Submit and revise your paper Once you’ve checked (and re-checked!) your manuscript, you’re ready to submit it to the journal editor via the submission and peer review system. 1. HOW TO SUBMIT A PAPER? Submission is simple: direct links for registration and log-in are provided from our journals’ Guide for Authors.
  39. 39.
  40. 40. 2.PEERREVIEW After submission, each manuscript is checked for plagiarism, and assessed carefully to determine if it its the aims and scope of the journal. If journal representatives are enthusiastic about the work, the journal editor will appoint reviewers. What doesthe peer reviewerdo? 1-Determine the validity, significance and originality of the work, suggest improvements to the manuscript. On their recommendation, editors will accept, accept with revisions, or reject a manuscript. 2-To make good judgments, peer reviewers use their own checklists to evaluate the content for scientific value and originality, to seethat articles adhere to general scientific practice. 3- Will look closely at your methodology and the validity of your data, and consider your ethical approach.
  41. 41. Editor-in-chief Associate/ Deputy Editor Peer Review Editorial Meeting Statistical Review Initial Decision Initial Submission About 10-30% of papers are rejected at this stage Assigned manuscripts are sent to the Associate Editors Ithenticate software for Plagiarism
  42. 42. Editor: Things I Look At And Consider • Title • Cover Letter • Abstract – Problem – Type of Study – Size of Study – Definitiveness of Result-sometimes Tables/Figures – Impact on Topic (Biology, Clinical Practice)
  43. 43. Editor-in-chief Associate/ Deputy Editor Peer Review Editorial Meeting Statistical Review Initial Decision Initial Submission
  44. 44. Types of Peer Review • Double blind – Article is de-identified, and identity of reviewer remains confidential. • Single blind – Reviewer knows identity of authors. Authors don’t find out identity of reviewers. • Open – Identity of authors, reviewers known to all – Often reviews are published with the article.
  45. 45. Editors are looking for work that is…. • Important • Informative • Novel • Ethical
  46. 46. Editors use the Reviews • Once reviews are in the editor reads the paper and the reviews • The editor, not the reviewer, makes the decision about the paper • Reviewers’ comments are valuable, but reviewers are only consultants to the thinking process
  47. 47. Editor-in-chief Associate/ Deputy Editor Peer Review Editorial Meeting Statistical Review Initial Decision Initial Submission About 20% of papers fail at this step
  48. 48. Three Major Reasons for Rejection • Quality – the science is flawed • Novelty – the science is good, but has previously been published or does not advance the field • Specialty – it’s good, but not of general interest and belongs in a specialty journal
  49. 49. Possible Decisions: NEMJ Initial Reject 62% Reject After Peer Review 31.2% We’re very interested 0.7% Needs additional Experiments-2% We’re interested 4%
  50. 50. 3.ARTICLE TRANSFER SERVICE Several Elsevier/Spinger/Biomedcental journals operate a complimentary Article Transfer Service. The editor will offer this service if they feel your article its better with another journal; with your approval, your submission will be transferred there. 4.CHECK THE STATUS OF YOUR PAPER After submission you can follow the status of your article in the (editorial platform), using a reference number that you’ll receive by email. If your paper is accepted for publication, you can follow the publication status through to completion using the ‘track your article’ feature. You’ll receive a reference number and link via email, after final decision.

  65. 65. - Submit your article to the most appropriate place, - Position yourself by proactively supplying information about your own performance.
  66. 66. If you’re at an early stage in your career, you can use metrics that don’t require longer timeframes: • Collaboration – how big is your network? What’s the status of colleagues in your network? Where in the world are they located? • Scholarly output – how productive are you? • Usage – how often have your publications been viewed? • Altmetrics – how many times is your output shared in collaboration networks like Mendeley or on social media? • Journal status – what’s the status of the journals that have published your work?
  67. 67. When you’re at a later stage in your research career, with a sizeable output and an impressive number of citations, further metrics can then become useful: • Citation count – how many citations has your articles received? • Outstanding articles – which of your articles are in the top percentile of comparable articles? • h-index – this rates your entire publication career based on both output and citation impact. (Anh-indexof 11indicatesthat 11of aresearcher’sarticleshaveeachreceivedatleast11 citations.)
  68. 68.
