∷ Would I be able to save a submission and come back to finish it later?

No, this method is not acceptable. An article need to be submitted after completion and primed for processing.

∷ Is there any page limit for writing manuscripts?

There is no page limit for regular or special issue manuscripts.

∷ Can I submit a manuscript that was published elsewhere?

No. Manuscript must be unique and should not be published elsewhere.

∷ Do you accept material published in other journals?

We cannot accept articles that have been previously published in other journals. However, we do understand that many submissions may be evolutions of previously published works. For this reason, we allow submissions to consist of no more than 30% previously published material.

∷ Is it OK to simultaneously send a paper to various journals?

No. This is against the codes of COPE. If one does so, his/her article will not be published. In case it is already published, the article will be retracted. Then the name of the author(s) will enter our blacklist and no manuscript will be ever accepted from the author(s).

∷ Do I have to answer each and every reviewer query?

Yes, it is necessary and very important that you answer each query, even if you think the paper does not require correction. Sometimes, queries are asking for updated information (references) or for missing citations of figures or tables in the text. 

∷ How can the author resubmit a revised version of her/his manuscript?

Sending the revised version of the manuscript through e-mail is not accepted in this journal. Resubmitting the manuscripts should be done through the journal's online submission system. The revised manuscript should be sent via the same ID as the original one.

∷ What should I do if I need more time to respond to reviewers?

You should contact editor to extend your time. If we don't receive your responses on due time, the process of your manuscript will be stopped.

If you require an extension, please get in touch with the editorial office here.

∷ What the usual steps for a paper required before its acceptance?

The reviewers’ comments will be sent to the author through the journal’s online system. Entering the User Name and Password, the author can access the comments in her/his personal page. 

∷ How long does the online publication of an accepted manuscript take?

The accepted manuscript will be published online after receiving the LaTeX and supplementary files, after the approval of the language editor.

∷ What are reasons for a desk reject decision?

The most common reason for a desk rejection is lack of novelty. Sometimes the paper is out of the scope of the journal or it is better to publish in local or more specific journals. In these cases, the editors will notify authors of such a decision within a few weeks so that the author can find a more suitable journal for their manuscript without losing too much time.

∷ What can authors do if webpage is not opening properly?

∷ What are journal pre-proofs?

Journal pre-proofs are Articles in Press that have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication by the Editorial Board of this publication. They have undergone enhancements after acceptance, such as the addition of a cover page and metadata, and formatting for readability, but are not yet definitive versions of record. These versions will undergo additional copyediting, typesetting and review, and may not yet have full TFSS functionality. For example, supplementary files may still need to be added, links to references may not resolve yet, etc. The text could still change before final publication.

Although journal pre-proofs do not have all bibliographic details available yet, they can be cited using the year of online publication and the DOI, as follows: author(s), article title, Publication (year), DOI. Please consult the journal's reference style for the exact appearance of these elements, abbreviation of journal names, and use of punctuation.

When the final article is assigned to a volume/issue of the publication, the Article in Press version will be removed and the final version will appear in the associated published volumes/issues of the publication. The date the article was first made available online will be carried over.
