Manuscript acceptance for publication is enhanced by
following simple but important steps.
First steps include reviewing relevant literature to determine
timeliness and literature gaps, creation of paper outline and
journal selection. Secondly, successful manuscript publication
requires meticulous paper preparation and presentation,
aligning paper with targeted journal aims and scope, as well as
closely following journal author guidelines.
Paper title and abstract create a first impression so must be
error free and reflect focus and content of paper. In addition to
carefully proofreading your paper for grammar and readability,
securing a professional editor to copy-edit your paper may
prevent unnecessary interruptions in the review process.
