Submit manuscripts as e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at: idealreview @gmail.com A manuscript number will be mailed to the corresponding author same day. Once you have chosen where to publish, you must prepare your manuscript according to the requirements of the publisher. You may publish your research in books, journals or conference proceedings. This page guides you through the process of preparing a manuscript for submission to a peer-reviewed journal, including:
A key point when publishing in journals is to familiarise yourself with the formal requirements concerning manuscript submission. These requirements are found in the author guidelines, or instructions to authors, commonly found on the journal’s web pages. The formal requirements include both the content and layout, and the technical requirements for submitting a manuscript. You will also find information about the journal’s Open Access policy. Your funding source or employer may have specific regulations when it comes to Open Access. You need to consider co-authorship and copyright to ensure your rights as an author are not violated. You will also need to address any conflicts of interest concerning the work you are publishing.
Structuring your manuscript & Meta-information:
The meta-information of the article is very important, it makes your article searchable and retrievable. Without it, your peers may never find the article. The meta-information consists of the title, authors with affiliations, keywords and abstract of the article. These are the elements that are indexed in scientific literature databases, and thus determine what searches will find your article.
The title is essential; a good title is informative, yet catchy. The title has to be focused and specific enought to indicate the content of the article. Though it can be tempting to play around and find a unique title, this does not always go down well with the journal editors.
Authors, addresses and affiliations:
Supply the names and addresses of all authors. Indicate clearly who is the corresponding author of the article. There are ethical aspects to consider when discussing co-authorship, and also variations between the disciplines and fields of research as to what constitutes authorship and co-authorship. An author may have more than one affiliation; if so, this should be clearly indicated.
These are given by the authors and the journal. The keywords are essential in retrieving the paper from a literature search. Take some time in deciding on your keywords; both your subject matter and your intended audience can influence your choice of keywords. The journal may ask you to provide standardised keywords such as the Medical Subject Headings used in Pubmed.
This is your story in a nutshell, designed to tease your reader to read the whole paper. Focus on using appropriate words and formulations; a well-phrased and well-organised abstract is what will get the readers’ attention. For some article types and in some journals your abstract will have to be structured in the same way as the main body of your article.
Content of the article Ideal Reseach Review
The classic scientific article has the following chapters: Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion. This structure is commonly refeered to as IRR & ISR. Journals across the scientific disciplines employ variations of this structure in their articles.
This section is where you give the context for your work. It must contain a general background both for your subject and specifically for this work. You should include: why the study was undertaken,and why it is important a review of the relevant literature the research questions and a brief mention of the chosen methods the hypotheses
Materials and Methods:
In this section you will provide information on the methods of your study. Verifiability is a central principle in the sciences and you should provide enough details of your methods for the results to be re-tested. Important aspects of this section are:
This chapter gives a general description of the experiment and presents the data, including: what answers were found to the research questions data often presented in figures and tables with corresponding captions. Instructions to authors will in detail show how to present tables and figures.
This chapter demonstrates your scientific creativity, thoroughness, knowledge and overview of the subject. Obtained results must be discussed within the context and approach you have chosen, and in relation to the findings by other scientists. Focus on and broadly discuss important or extraordinary results and conclusions.
Whole Articles summary, finding short fact of article, & own view is most will be paper
Continuously discussing your work in relation to the works of others is an essential feature of academic writing and part of what makes a work verifiable. Throughout your article you will cite the works of others. Citing in the text and the reference list is done by following specific reference styles that are given in the journal’s instructions to the author. It is recommended to use a reference tool to save time and to handle and structure the large information load. You can read more about this in Reference Managers. The frequency of citations is additionally an important bibliometric tool in formal evaluation of research.
No work is done in isolation and you should show your appreciation for the help you have received. It can be challenging to decide who should be listed as co-authors and who should be listed as contributors to be thanked in the acknowledgements.
The requirements of the file format, including text, figures and tables, will vary for different journals and editors. You must pay heed to such details as page numbers and double spacing. Some journals have separate formatting rules according to the type of article. Most journals have a web-based, electronic submission system.
Response to peer reviewers:
If the manuscript is a resubmission after revisions, the response should be formulated according to the instructions to authors. Hindi language articles may use font of Walkman Chanakya.
Accessibility to the data:
Sometimes it is essential for the readers to have access to the data behind the article. There are several options as to how and where to store the data in order to make them accessible. Certain research domains have large data archives, and you will be expected to deposit your data there. The journal itself may provide storage space for the data as a supplement to the article may provide a service for data archives.
Proofs, Reprints and manuscript charges:
Electronic proofs will be sent (e-mail attachment) to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Because IRR & ISR will be published, print & online, authors will have free electronic access to the full text (PDF) of the article. Authors can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles. There is no charge for the processing of paper but author(s) of each accepted paper is required to pay the publication charge which is very nominal fees. The fees depends upon the number of pages, number of authors, images etc. Before the accepted paper is published we will intimate the fees in the acceptance letter.
Final Proof Corrections and Submission:
The next step in the publication process involves reviewing the galley proofs for your article. Please return the checked galley proofs via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org submission system after receipt. Late return of galley proofs may mean postponement to a later issue. Please make a copy of the corrected proofs before returning them; keep the copy for your records. This step is entirely the responsibility of the corresponding author.
