Publishing Models and Peer Review Processes

Peer Review (PR) is very important for improving the quality of article. JNSCI is using the following publishing models with different peer review processes:

 

1. Rapid Publishing Model

Publish with Pre-Sub Peer Review: 

If your MS has been reviewed by two or more reviewers (see below self-run peer review) OR by another journal, your MS may be qualified for rapid publishing.

Please tell us the story about your MS in the cover letter when you submit it to JNSCI.

Publish with Post-Pub Peer Review:

If your MS is under peer review for more than two weeks,  you may request this option to publish MS while awaiting post-pub review to be completed.

However, the Editor has final decision on your request.

 

2. Traditional Publishing Model

Publish with Pre-Pub Peer Review: 

This peer review process is the same as other journal, which may ask you to suggest or exclude some reviewers.

(a) offline Invited PR:

Please suggest 3-5 reviewers when you submit MS. Your MS will be sent to your suggested reviewers for comments.

(b) online Open or Blind PR (option):

Your MS information such as title, author, and abstract may be posted to "Manuscript under Review" section, then visitors (readers) may have interest in reviewing your MS.

About Self-Run Peer Review:

You have option to contact reviewers by yourself to help finish peer review before submission OR after submissison.

Here is suggestion for self-run peer review:

(a) Send your MS to two or more reviewers by yourself for comments;
(b) Revise your MS based on their comments with tracking; and
(c) Send your revised MS and the comments of reviewers to JNSCI.
