Can I submit my manuscript to two journals at the same time?
Thank you for reaching out to us with your query. Please note that it is considered highly unethical to submit the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously. Almost all of the well-indexed journals do not generally review manuscripts being considered elsewhere. Besides ethical considerations, one must also give due consideration to IPR (intellectual property rights). Most journals perform similarity checks prior to peer review. Therefore, a manuscript that is submitted to journal A may get submitted to the repository of the plagiarism detection tool and show up when journal B also runs a similarity check on the same manuscript. If that happens, then your manuscript may get rejected immediately by both of these journals. However, you can improve your odds of journal acceptance by checking some of the resources available on our website. We wish you the very best for your manuscript submission!
