The former can provide technical advice, while the latter can determine whether your ideas are being communicated clearly.
Many academic departments form reading groups to review each others' papers, says Elizabeth M. "New faculty should and can form reading groups where they can exchange drafts and get feedback to each other," she says.
Articles are published rapidly as soon as they are accepted, after passing an in-house quality check.
Peer review by invited experts, suggested by the authors, takes place openly after publication.
A major faux pas is submitting your manuscript simply to get it reviewed, says Newcombe. Beef up your cover letter Many authors don't realize the usefulness of cover letters, Newcombe says.
She's heard authors say, "This is a small experiment that I know would never get published in that journal, but I would like to get some feedback." Not a good idea, Newcombe says, because it wastes editors' and reviewers' time, and those who reject it from the journal may also be the ones who have to review the paper when it's submitted to a different journal. In addition to stating "here it is" and that the paper conforms to ethical standards, Newcombe says the letter can contain the author's rationale for choosing the editor's journal--especially if it's not immediately apparent.Send your manuscript to the right journal Many rejections are the result of manuscript-journal mismatch--a discrepancy between the submitted paper and the journal's scope or mission.Newcombe advises authors to consider the "theoretical bent" of the papers that regularly appear in the journal before they submit a paper to it.Write clearly "There is no substitute for a good idea, for excellent research or for good, clean, clear writing," says Nora S.Newcombe, Ph D, of Temple University, former editor of APA's (Vol. 2) wrote that a review article should tell "a straightforward tale of a circumscribed question in want of an answer.It is not a novel with subplots and flashbacks, but a short story with a single, linear narrative line.Let this line stand out in bold relief." Newcombe also admits that neatness counts.Don't panic The overwhelming majority of initial journal manuscripts are rejected at first."Remember, to get a lot of publications, you also will need to get lots of rejections," says Edward Diener, Ph D, editor of APA's .In addition, wherever your name appears as an author or reviewer, we will link out to your ORCID account via an ORCID badge and your i D number, ensuring maximum exposure of all your research activities to other users of the platform (or those you choose to make public).The Catch 22 in research publishing is that few authors work effectively in the process until after they've published a few manuscripts. Neal-Barnett, Ph D, of Kent State University and author of the forthcoming book, "Bad Nerves" (Simon & Schuster, 2003), as well as numerous papers in multiple journals believes that the key to successfully publishing an article is to "get a vision"--a reason and purpose for writing.
