All journal has a specific method of submission of paper either online submission or through email or by hardcopy submission. But as per my experience, most of the journals are now accepting only on online and email submissions. If you are asked to submit your paper online then you may need to fill some other information as well like Name, Affiliation, Contact number, email ID, Institutions name, Degree completed or perusing, Years of experience etc. Make sure you have given correct information of yours. Make use of your organizational email ID along with personal email ID.
Wait for the Notification and don’t be Panic
I have seen most of the authors got panic after submitting the paper and continuously asking for the notification and review report. But here I suggest you that do not be panic because the Editor may receive several papers for the journal so it takes some time.
The initial information you could receive like any of the following statuses
- Accepted: It means your paper has been accepted
- Accepted with Modification: It requires some modification and then it will be accepted.
- Revise and resubmit: It means your paper needed much modification so you can modify according to the reviewer’s comment.
- Rejected: It means the paper is not suitable for the journal but it does not mean that the paper is not suitable for other journals.
So take the action accordingly and get your paper published.
