One of the first steps in choosing the right journal is to know its scope and aim. This information is usually available on the journal’s website. It will also help you find the kind of articles the journal is interested in publishing.
You can also get information from your literature review. Look for journals, wherein the papers you cited have been published. It is likely that those journals may also be interested in your work.
You should also consider how long a journal takes to publish articles. With some journals, there can be a considerable delay between submission and publication. Your choice of the journal can also depend on the type of the audience you want to reach out. Based on your requirements, you may also look for a journal with broad scope, wider target audience and an online presence.

The professional cover letter accompanying your journal submission introduces your research scope and objectives to the journal reviewers. It briefly explains why your manuscript would be of interest to readers. The cover letter is far from a piece of formality and should be written carefully as it will argue that your manuscript is the right fit for the journal. It is important to write a coherent and persuasive cover letter. Check Writing a Cover Letter for Journal Submission at Enago Academy to learn more.
Peer review is a process to assess the quality and validity of research manuscript. It is carried out by an expert who connects with the author and tries to maintain the integrity of the subject matter in the manuscript. While the objective remains the same, both the author and the reviewer are anonymous to each other in double blind peer review. Unlike the general peer review process, author anonymity in double-blind peer review helps prevent any reviewer bias that could have been a chance due to country of origin or previous work.
Plagiarism refers to the act of stealing and passing off others’ ideas as one’s own, and/or using others’ content without properly crediting the source, and/or presenting an idea derived from a source. Plagiarism could include information from any available content repository existing in the digital or print format. In research, plagiarism is a common issue that creeps in due to improper quotation or citation of the information source.
Following are some of the simple steps that help avoid plagiarism:
- Paraphrase complex ideas or technical information that doesn’t replicate source’s impression
- Quote exactly what the source mentions
- Follow formatting guidelines (Chicago, MLA, APA, etc.) while citing source information
- Include source references backing the source information. References could include details entailing author, publication, title and important dates.

One of the most common mistakes that most authors make while submitting a manuscript is the selection of journal. Despite the high-impact, rigorous work done by scholars, manuscript gets rejected because they don’t match the scope of the journal. To avoid this, selecting the right journal for the manuscript is of great importance.
Keep the below criteria in your mind to select the right journal for your manuscript:
- Browse and find the most relevant journal in niches
- The journal should be field-specific depending upon the journal’s target readers
- The types of manuscripts the journal publishes. A journal with a similar scope might just be restricted to case studies and reject a theorem specific research manuscript
- Browse for a high impact factor journal among all journals relevant to your scope of research
