Canadian Center of Science and Education: How to Get Your Journal Article Published

The Canadian Center of Science and Education offers tips and tools for anyone interested in getting a journal article published.

Toronto, Canada, September 26, 2013 --( Canadian Center of Science and Education accepts new articles every day, getting a journal article published is still a daunting and competitive task. After theorizing, researching, and compiling data, authors are hard to accept a rejection from a publisher. There are few limitations on submitting more than one piece and researchers should take advantage of that fact. If you or someone you know is considering submitting their work to a publisher, discuss the following tips:

A low-risk submission is one in which the author has taken all proper content and formatting guidelines into consideration. The Canadian Center of Science and Education agrees that a high-risk submission is often characterized as unfocused. This center publishes over 40 scholarly journals and understands how important it is for applicants to read their submission guidelines. Be sure to follow all submission guidelines and review them periodically. Many submissions are disqualified for simple mistakes like poor resource citation or disregard of the word limit. Give your submission the chance that it deserves by checking your submission guidelines often. It’s also a good idea to thoroughly research the organization that you are working with.

Take time to research the journal that you are aiming for to ensure that your content meets their goals. You will also want to research the journal’s reputation in a particular field. Take a look at their acceptance and rejection rates to get a good idea about your chances. It’s always a good idea to have a list of journals that you feel are applicable to your subject matter. If you receive a rejection, you should have a backup plan.

It may take some time for a journal to accept or reject your submission. Depending on the journal, 2 to 4 reviewers will take time to consider your work. When you submit the work, you should receive an acknowledgement or a reference number. Most journals will include an expected wait time in their submission guidelines. If they don’t contact you in a reasonable amount of time, you may want to get in touch with the editor.

It can be hard to imagine that your hard work will be rejected but in reality, these things happen every day for various reasons. If you get rejected be sure to thoroughly read the review of your work and try to adapt an objective perspective. Try to focus on the things that you can fix and consider submitting to an alternative journal. It’s also possible that your work will be conditionally accepted with revisions. These revisions will range from major to minor changes in your work. Try to be positive as you revise your paper and understand that these changes will enhance your work.
