impact factor

Consider whether your topic is of interest to the target audience of the magazine. Estimate the Impact Factor and Citation Index. Weigh the ratio of the prestige of the journal and the likelihood that your article will be published; think about how long it can take from submission of an article to its publication. What is Impact Factor?

An unsuccessful choice of journal can lead to three main scenarios: first, the manuscript may simply be returned to you marked "not suitable for publication." This decision is often made after peer review, which means that you may receive a disappointing response weeks or even months after the submission of the manuscript.

Second, a manuscript may receive negative reviews simply because the reviewers are not familiar enough with your area of ​​specialization. At the same time, it is likely that with a more careful approach to the choice, you would easily find a magazine that would be more relevant to your chosen topic.

In the worst case, you will receive a series of criticisms from reviewers who do not understand your field well enough and spend a lot of effort trying to "improve" your work, even if it does not really need to be corrected.

Finally, suppose that the article is still accepted for publication. However, your joy will be short-lived if in the end it turns out that none of the researchers working in a field close to you reads the chosen journal. Thus, in essence, no one will know about the results you get. This is another reason to consult with colleagues before you make a decision about choosing a particular journal.

Let us dwell on two more practical points that must be taken into account. Many journals today require mandatory submission of manuscripts and other materials in electronic form. The rules for presenting materials in this case can be quite complex, especially when the article uses figures or tables.

You may find that the selected journal accepts articles for placement only on a paid basis. Evaluate in advance whether you can afford such a luxury, and whether it is worth looking for another magazine.

Most journals accept manuscripts for publication in English. For the most of our clients who order proofreading and editing of manuscripts, English is not their native language. Writing in English can be difficult even for those who speak it. This is why editing and proofreading by a native speaker is often essential.

Along with reviewing and bringing articles up to the required linguistic standards, the scientific editor can give an objective assessment of your research from the outside. Proofreading services include: correction of spelling and grammatical errors, as well as correction-editing of redundancy, parasitic words, misuse of synonyms, homonyms and other stylistic turns of speech. Editorial changes can be influenced by the context and situational function of the text, the style of presentation of information, the pace of the text, headings, case and narrative structure.

The cost of text editing is determined based on its volume. The calculation unit is a standard page containing 1800 characters.
