Your guide to publishing a technical research paper in an International Journal (A-Z)

This blog will help you step by step while writing the research content, curating and publishing in International Journal/Conferences.

1. Recognize your interests and decide on the subject of your study.

2. Try to get in touch with your lecturer or faculty to ask for advice.

3. Study the most recent developments in that field of study.

4. Look at the “Call for papers” on the publication websites. On several websites, including those for Emerald, Springer, Taylor & Francis etc you can find a list of calls for papers from various journals.

5. Examine the impact factor, ranking, and Scopus Index of several journals.

6. Make a list of the best journals according to your priorities and record the dates and deadlines for special issues.

7. Finalize your journal and choose a focused subject for your research paper.

8. Before beginning the paper, ensure that you are familiar with and confident in the research structure and objective.

9. Consult prior research articles on ResearchGate, Scihub, Google Scholar, and other specialized publication websites.

10. Use similar keywords to find a good collection of high-caliber research articles (25–30) with related objectives for your reference.

11. Review the paper's format that the journal has provided. Their template or information description may be attached.

12. To improve clarity, start focusing on the abstract, purpose, goals, keywords, methodology, originality, and practical implications.

13. Ensure that the citations in your complete research paper are made using a certain piece of software.

For instance, Mendeley Software enables you to upload the manuscript into the software and offers author citations in all formats.

14. Develop your own architectures, flowcharts, tables, figures, and analyses, and place your name before the charts to indicate that you were the creator of the work.

15. After you begin your study, you may find it challenging to obtain the findings that support your purpose, but make sure you maintain practicing your research framework.

16. Ensure that you continue to rephrase your texts and keep an eye out for plagiarism after 1000–2000 words.

17. Turnitin is one of the professional plagiarism detection tools, and Google also has several free options.

18. If you have taken some content from another research paper, make sure to cite them properly and add the references in proper format as per mentioned on the journal website.

19. If you are doing some Modelling, analysis and simulation remember to add proper methodology and factor used during the evaluation.

20. Add the Finding, Discussions, and Limitations section at the end of the paper as it adds a lot of credibility to the paper from the reviewer perspective.

21. The conclusion of the paper should be very precise as every researcher goes through the conclusion to quickly understand your research and identify the future research gaps.
