The Process of Publishing Scientific Papers

  • Chapter

Abstract

Publishing a scientific paper involves interactions among authors, editors, reviewers, copy and technical editors, and the publisher, with the goal to publish the best-quality research as timely as possible. This chapter describes the publishing process, starting with how to submit a manuscript to a journal, what editors and reviewers do, how manuscripts navigate the peer-review process, and how an accepted manuscript undergoes layout and printing, finally becoming part of the scientific literature.
