When your paper is approved for publication, the proofs are sent to the corresponding author. Once approved by the corresponding author, your paper is assembled into an issue of the journal and published in its final form. An acceptance letter from your journal's editorial system. Some journals require a formal review process before papers can be published. During this stage, reviewers will comment on the paper and suggestions for improvement may be made.
After acceptance has been confirmed, the editor will contact you to discuss any additional details regarding publication. If you have not already done so, please also send an email to the editor at the address listed on page 3 of your proof to confirm that all other requirements have been met.
If your paper is rejected, we will send you an explanation why along with information on how to revise it for future submission. If you decide not to pursue publication of your paper further, simply delete your file from the computer.
The accepted paper is the one that has been peer-reviewed. The material should be the same as the final published version, but no copy-editing, typesetting, or copyright marking from the publisher should be included. This is how the vast majority of approved papers appear.
Sometimes, however, an author discovers problems with a paper after submitting it for review. In this case, the author has two options: they can either withdraw their paper from consideration by the journal or they can attempt to fix the issues identified by the reviewers. If the authors decide to withdraw their paper, they will send an email to the editor of the journal who will then remove it from further consideration. Authors cannot simply re-submit their paper once they have withdrawn it.
If authors choose to work on fixing the issues raised by the reviewers, they will need to provide a detailed explanation of their changes in order to ensure that nothing important was lost during the editing process. For example, if a reviewer points out a problem with experimental results, the authors might want to provide additional data or analysis to support their claims. After making the necessary modifications, the authors will then submit a new version of their paper for evaluation by another set of reviewers.
Once all the issues have been resolved to the satisfaction of the editors, the authors will be given the go-ahead to publish their paper.
When a manuscript is submitted to a journal, the editor reviews it (or an associate editor). The editor will also ensure that no pages, appendices, tables, or other attachments are missing from the submission. Finally, the editor should be sure that all necessary funds have been secured before granting publication rights.
After the editor has reviewed the manuscript, he or she will communicate with the author(s) either by phone or email to report on progress and to get feedback on issues such as clarity of presentation, relevance of content, and so forth. If problems arise that require resolution with the help of another expert, the editor will seek out such assistance.
In some cases, editors may ask for revisions to be made to relevant parts of the manuscript. For example, if results are not consistent with those of other studies in the literature, then these findings should be discussed in detail. In other cases, editors may request additional experiments to support conclusions drawn from the data presented. All requests for revision should be made in writing and should never be done over the phone or through email. They should always be treated as important improvements to be made before publishing; otherwise, the editor would be wasting his or her time.
If the revisions are accepted by the editor, then they will be incorporated into a new version of the manuscript.
So, what happens if your work is accepted for publication by a publisher? If a publisher expresses interest in your work after receiving sample chapters, a synopsis, and a proposal, they will contact you and request the entire manuscript. You should anticipate a publisher to request changes to your article. They may have suggestions about how to improve your story that only they can offer.
During this process, it is important to be patient but not overly so. Publishers cannot give you a time frame for when your book will be published because books take much longer to write than people think. It could be months or even years before your book sees the light of day.
When your book does come out, be sure to check with your local library to see if they will carry it. Some publishers may provide free copies for reviewers who wish to post their opinions of the book online.
Finally, remember that publishing is a competitive business. Even if your book finds success, it doesn't mean that another book won't come along and beat it at its own game. So, publish your book and move on from there!
