Sci-Hall adopts double-blind peer review. We aim to provide high-quality and fast publishing. The processing cycle of submitted manuscripts is generally 6-8 weeks.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by the executive editor based on the matching degree of the topic and the core content. If the preliminary review is passed, the editor-in-chief nominates reviewers, and then the assistant editor assigns the manuscript to the reviewers.
The reviewers' evaluations of the manuscript include four categories: acceptance as is, minor revision (conditional acceptance), major revision (conditional acceptance), and rejection.
The first round of review generally takes 10-14 days. The assistant editor then emails the review report to the author. The author needs to re-submit the revised manuscript according to the review report, if the review result is conditional acceptance with minor or major revision.
If the result of the review is to accept the manuscript as is or reject it, the review is generally one round. If the result of the review is conditional acceptance with minor or major revisions, the review will generally be two to three rounds. The review of major revised manuscripts generally takes 7-10 days while that of minor revised ones usually takes 3-5 days.
After the manuscript is revised, the editorial department will organize proofreading, and then email the author to the final .pdf version. This process generally takes 3-5 days.
Once the final manuscript is confirmed by the author, it is submitted for publication. Electronic publishing generally takes 3-5 days.
The period from manuscript submission to online preprint is generally about 6-8 weeks.
Currently, the publisher does not provide paper copies of journals.
For authors who need paper copies, the publisher can email the electronic version to the authors for printing. This is based on a written request from the authors.
The open access journal adopts a "author-pays" policy to maintain efficient submission processing and high-quality online publishing. An article processing fee will be charged for each accepted article. The authors or funding agencies are responsible for payment.
Please note that the authors should pay the full amount. This means that any administrative fees paid for the transaction should apply to authors, not the journal publisher.
Sci-Hall has zero tolerance for academic plagiarism. We ask authors to submit their original work and believe so. Sci-Hall performs cross-reference similarity checks when pre-screening submissions. We also recommend that authors conduct plagiarism checks on their work.
Despite these measures, we cannot guarantee that all published content will be free of plagiarism. Published papers will be withdrawn if plagiarism is found. If the published manuscript must be withdrawn due to plagiarism, we will notify the author by official email. In this case, APCs will not be refunded.
The author can withdraw the submitted content at any time. However, different timing of withdrawal corresponds to different charging policies.If the author withdraws the submission before the review begins (3 days after submission), no fee will be charged.If it is withdrawn during the review process (4-14 days after submission), 40% of the APCs will be charged as the processing fees. If a withdrawal occurs when the review process is completed, 70% of the APCs will be charged. If withdrawal is requested after publication, 100% APCs will be charged.
The publications will be indexed in Google Scholar, DOI, CROSSREF, DOAJ, CORE, OAJI, PAPERITY.
