I. Planning before writing

1. To determine the nature of the paper, according to the content nature of the current international SCI paper, there are the following categories:

The main contents are as follows: (1) the original study of (Original Research Article)

(2) Summary of (Review)

(III) draft (Invited article, editorial, commentary)

(4) Meta-analysis (Meta-analysis)

(v) case report (Case Report)

(VI) letter (Letter to the Editor) to editors

II. Selected best target contribution journals

1. In general, the selection of periodicals can take into account the following factors:

The main contents are as follows: (1) whether the topic, experimental results and potential significance of the article are suitable for periodical readers.

(2) the close relationship between the articles published in the journal and the content of your paper.

(3) the contribution cost, influencing factors and changing trend of periodicals, and the review time of manuscripts.

(4) for a small number of periodicals, Chinese scientific researchers should also consider the bias and success rate of periodicals.

two。 The copyright of the paper, with regard to the signature of the paper, we need to consider:

(1) the limitation of periodicals on the number of authors

(2) the determination of the first author, whether there is a juxtaposed first author

(III) determination of the author of the communication

(4) the order in which the intermediate authors are arranged (according to the contribution size of the paper or the initials of the name)

(5) the signature of each paper must be approved by the author

III. Contributions to SCI papers

1. Peer review (Peer Review)

You can choose to recommend or exclude reviewers. Many SCI journals tend to leave these decisions to the author himself, because the author knows better than the editor who is best qualified to evaluate your work.

It would be best if you attached the contact information of the recommended reviewer. For the journals of the consultant editorial team, you can select the appropriate reviewers in them. Remember not to recommend researchers in your unit, department, or company, even if they are not in the same area as you. Similarly, friends, co-lead authors (within three years), co-authors (to provide you with experimental materials, etc.) are not allowed. For excluding reviewers, the appropriate number is usually about two, and each briefly states the reasons for the exclusion, such as competition in financial support, prejudice in views, and so on.

two。 Modify (Revision)

In general, if the article is not rejected, the editor-in-chief of the journal will put forward varying degrees of revision. If the editor responds and specifically lists some of the areas that need to be modified, this means that these are the focus of the changes. At the same time, the views of each reviewer must also be taken into account. A full and comprehensive reply to the amendment is a prerequisite for the article to be accepted. Do not reply selectively on your own, which is also a sign of the importance you attach to their opinions. In addition to these comments, you must also specify what has been modified in the corresponding position in the article.

Here the editor suggests: for editors of SCI journals, they usually choose reviewers through search, select some experienced, more responsible, and more fair research scholars in the same field. If you are really unable to meet the reviewers' advice, you must provide reasonable reasons to explain why these changes can be implemented in the current circumstances. Although these reasons are not always useful, the editor will carefully consider your explanation.
