How the Directory Helps You Publish Show more

Although individuals must communicate their ideas in writing, the Directory helps the author determine which journal will most likely accept the manuscript. In making this decision, it is important to compare the characteristics of your manuscript and the needs of each journal. The following table provides a framework for making this comparison.

Relating the Theme of the Manuscript to the Topics of Articles Published by Each Journal Show more

To begin the process of choosing editors to contact and/or submitting a manuscript, the author needs to examine the similarity between the theme of the manuscript and the editor's needs. The Directory describes these needs by listing the topics each publication considers important and the manuscript guidelines. To find those journals that publish manuscripts in any particular area, refer to the topic index.

The Relationship of the Manuscript's Style and Methodology to the Significance of the Journal's Theme to the Discipline Show more

In addition to determining the similarity between the topic of the manuscript and the topic of articles published by the journal, an examination of the significance of the theme to the discipline is also an important criterion in selecting a journal.

The Relationship of the Manuscript's Style and Methodology to the Journal's Readership Show more

Another factor in selecting the journal to receive the manuscript is the journal's readership. The readers of each journal include academics (professors and researchers), practitioners, business persons, or administrators or a combination of these groups.

The Possible Results of the Review Process and the Selection of a Journal to Receive the Manuscript Show more

Despite the fact that a journal with lower prestige would most likely publish the article, the author might be willing to take a chance on a journal with a greater amount of prestige. Since this will decrease the chances of manuscript acceptance, the author should also consider the consequences of rejection. The consequences include the knowledge the author will gain from having his manuscript rejected.

Sending the Manuscript Show more

Before sending the manuscript to an editor, the author should write a cover letter, make sure the manuscript is correctly typed, the format conforms to the journal's guidelines and the necessary copies have been included. It is imperative to follow the correct submission process. The author should always keep a copy of the manuscript.

Receipt of the Reviewer's Comments Show more

The reviewers may still reject the article although the author may have followed this procedure and taken every precaution to avoid rejection. When this occurs, the author should focus on making those changes that would make the manuscript more understandable to the next editor and/or reviewer.

What is a Refereed Article? Show more

With some exceptions, a refereed article is one that is blind reviewed and has two external reviewers. The blind review requirement and the use of external reviewers are consistent with the research criteria of objectivity and of knowledge.
