Article Processing Charges (APC):
As with any other open access publication, the journal of Thermodynamics & Catalysis operates through processing and handling fee received from authors, which is utilized in meeting the maintenance charges of the respective journal. The model is pursued in order to present free articles for readers without subscription charges. Authors are required to make the payment once the manuscript is cleared to be published by reviewers.
Average Article prorcessing time (APT) is 55 days
The basic article processing fee or manuscript handling cost is as per the price mentioned above on the other hand it may vary based on the extensive editing, colored effects, complex equations, extra elongation of number of pages of the article, etc.
Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) :
Journal of Thermodynamics & Catalysis is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.
Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.
The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.
Submission of an Article
In order to reduce delays, authors should adhere to the level, length and format specified at every stage of processing right from manuscript submission to each revision stage. Submitted articles should have a 300 words summary/abstract, separate from the main text. The summary should provide a brief account of the work by clearly stating the purpose of the study and the methodology adopted, highlighting major findings briefly. The text may contain a few short subheadings of no more than 40 characters each.
In order to accomplish its vision to make scientific & health care information open access and to disseminate the scientific knowledge all around the world Longdom Publishing SL made a new initiation.
