Where to Publish Your Research Paper?

The process of submitting and publishing
research articles can be difficult for junior researches. The GSSRR
editors will try to guide you in finding the right place to publish your
paper.  The following steps are to assist scholars of all stages in
submitting and publishing their research in peer-reviewed journals:

Step 1: based on your research topic; find related journals.

You can use the following keywords examples to identify potential journals for publication:

Ex1: international Journal call for papers 2015 + “your topic”
Ex2: Journal call for papers 2015 + “your topic”
Ex3: call for papers 2015 + “your topic”
If you need faster publication then you
may try the following keywords examples to identify potential journals
for publication (include the current month within the search keywords,
let say that we are in July):
Ex1: international Journal call for papers deadline July 2015 + “your topic”
Ex2: Journal call for papers deadline July 2015 + “your topic”
Ex3: call for papers deadline July 2015 + “your topic”

Step 2: You are going to choose one and
only one journal to publish your paper; so rank these potential
journals based on the following criteria:

1-     Journal Scope: each journal has
its own “Aims and Scope” section. Read it carefully and match your paper
to the subjects mentioned in the Aims and Scope section.
2-     Indexing: if are like your paper
to be read by other scholars, find the page that talks about
“Abstracting and Indexing”, each journal will have such page. The more
indexing and abstracting partners the wider your paper will be available
to other scholars.
3-     Review time: since you are going
to submit your paper to one journal at a time; then you have to find a
journal that will replay to you soon (if you are looking for fats
publication). Getting your acceptance letter within your time frame from
the editor is important for most scholars, search the journal site for
average time needed to review your paper, email the editor and ask him
about the average time needed to review your paper; if the editor does
not respond to an inquiry about average time ranges then you have to
expect long time to get the peer review results.
4-     Publication frequency:  Journals
that have more issues per year will be faster than those journals with 1
or two issues per year.
5-     Journal Reputation: If your goals
of publishing are related to academic advancement, you can evaluate the
reputation of the journals by checking their titles within Scopus and
Thomson Reuters ISI databases. Journals that are included in Scopus and
Thomson Reuters ISI databases have more reputation than other journals.

Step 3: prepare your paper according to
the journal template, and submit it to the journal editor, or you can
use the online submission system to send your article.
