For Chronicle, Yogesh Upadhyaya talks to Muthu Prasanna P. about the journal and its benefits to research community.
Q-1: Welcome, Sir. Please tell us more about your journal.
We the - team of publishing have started our journal in the Jan – 2010.The team consists of my self –Associate Prof. P. Muthuprasanna (Managing Editor), Professor K. Suriaprabha (Assistant Editor)- from Hindu College of Pharmacy, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, India. We have a sound high profiled Advisory editorial board of about 32 experts from around the globe who have and still guide us in running this journal successfully. The office is located in Andhra Pradesh (Guntur) –India and been indexed by Chemical Abstract Services – USA, Index Copernicus, Ulrich’s Periodicals and EBSCO. Elsevier Publication (EMBASE) has recently accepted to index our journal in its indexing database.
Our main aim is to publish standard research and review articles under the purview of the aim and scope of the journal. We focus not to make the authors wait too long for receiving the status of acceptance since we take not more than one week to let them know whether their submitted manuscript would be accepted for publication or not. If accepted, within next 2-3 weeks we process the manuscript and send electronic print. Subsequently, it would be published in the coming issue. We strongly believe that the research or review work should reach the science world as fast as possible as there may be someone waiting for their research.
As we also focus on research standards, each article is peer reviewed and during submission - an expert (PhD qualified) in the same field takes the responsibility for the standard of the submitting manuscript and we do get written consent (authorised) from him for the same. We then get the manuscript peer reviewed by the reviewers.
We assure that this journal is author-friendly so that any time the author can contact us by email to get their queries answered, though their queries can be too specific. Their email will be answered within 24- 48 hours.
Q-2: How the journal will be useful for the research community?
We focus on fast delivery of research/review articles as much as we could to the scientific community. Moreover this journal is a free online journal; it does not need any subscription or “pay per view”. This helps researchers from underdeveloped and developing countries to get the benefit as the full text is freely available.
We also welcome review article of current research, which we hope to increase the journal citations as a whole along with the article. We have received many encouraging remarks for our services from many researchers/faculties/experts around the globe.
Q-3: What advice will you give to researchers desirous of publishing his research papers in your journal?
We do not make author to worry about central electronic submission as some other journal does. Our submission process is very friendly and simple. The manuscript initially should be formatted according the “Instruction to authors” available in our journal page. Then download “Cover letter” and “Authorization Form”. With appropriate signature scan those “Cover letter” and “Authorization Form” and send along with the manuscript to email@example.com.
Within 24-48 hours they would get reply from us about their submission. Then we would intimate the author at each stage’s (at an interval of a week) of processing about the status of their manuscript .We would also send sms to their mobile phones intimating the email. This prevents them to check their email daily from us.
We advice contributing authors hoping to have a good impact in the research field to send their research/review of current life sciences and pharmaceutical sciences.
