Information for Authors Paper Submission

This page provides general information for authors. Practical and in some cases also journal specific information For Authors can be found on the respective journal page. Also the About SCIRP page contains important information for authors.

Submission Policy
Papers submitted to Scientific Research Publishing must contain original material. The submitted paper, or any translation of it, must neither be published, nor be submitted for publication elsewhere. Violations of these rules will normally result in an immediate rejection of the submission without further review.

Contributions should be written in English and include a 100-300 words abstract. SCIRP's journals usually welcome the following types of contributions:

• Original research articles
• Review articles, providing a comprehensive review on a scientific topic

All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted via SCIRP's Paper Submission System (PSS) at http://papersubmission.scirp.org/. Please follow the instructions given on this site.
General Peer-Review Process
In short, all manuscripts submitted for publication in our journals are strictly and thoroughly peer-reviewed. The review process is single blind. If the manuscript is accepted for full review, it will be reviewed by a minimum of two external reviewers.

Submitted manuscripts will undergo a detailed initial check including a Plagiarism Check in the Editorial Office. An Editor – usually the Editor-in-Chief or a board member of the journal – together with the Editorial Office takes charge of the peer-review process. It starts with a Preliminary Review by the Editor (finished no more than 10 days after manuscript submission).

After a manuscript is accepted for full review, the Editor will collect at least two review comments and prepare a decision letter based on the comments of the reviewers (finished no more than 4 weeks after preliminary review). The decision letter is sent to the Corresponding Author to request an adequate revision (peer-reviewed again whenever necessary). The author will be asked to format the manuscript according to SCIRP’s template before it goes into typesetting and proofreading with the publisher. The author will receive the paper in PDF produced by SCIRP for checking before it is published online.
