Publishing with Advanced Research gives you the opportunity to be part of a successful community with a compelling mission: to provide free access to new and original research.

Open Access to Your Research

By publishing under the open-access model, our authors enable their colleagues to enhance their research by downloading information on the latest developments in their fields. This setup benefits the entire scientific community. Granting other scientists access to your work in this way can potentially influence the development of your scientific career due to the positive effect on your citation rate and the resulting increased impact of your work.

Become an Author

You can contribute to our projects via the submission of book chapters or journal papers. We have two kinds of journals, namely, pocket journals and regular journals.

A publishing fee is charged for publishing book chapters and regular journal papers, whereas publishing pocket journal papers is completely free of charge.

Write a Book Chapter

Our books are published as fully searchable e-books and as high-quality printed books. All printed books are printed on premium quality paper, and the contents of most books are in full color. We definitely offer the best of both worlds..

Our books cover original research. They are collections of reviewed scholarly contributions usually written by multiple authors and are edited by scholars with related expertise. Each scholarly contribution represents one chapter, and each chapter is complete but is related to the overarching topics and objectives of the book. The books are addressed to practicing professionals and researchers, professionals in the academia, former researchers and Ph.D. students, and other specialists.

The book format is different in scope and in length from the journal format. In addition, the book publishing process has to adhere to strict publishing deadlines. Thus, we have developed a strict review process without compromising the quality of our publications, as follows:

Invitation Phase (Optional)

For the majority of our books, we select the scholars we would like to collaborate with and invite them to take part in our publishing projects. However, it does not mean that if you are not invited, you cannot contribute to a book. You can contribute to a book project as long as it is still open for submission.

Our books are distinct projects initiated on the basis of in-depth research and continuous monitoring of the latest scientific studies and advancements. In this phase, we select the authors we would like to collaborate with and invite them to take part in the project. A rigorous selection process is employed to gather outstanding experts to contribute to the creation of influential literature. Only leading experts with highly relevant research backgrounds are invited to take part in our publications.

After the selection process has been completed, we send invitation e-mails to inform prospective authors about the book project and to propose the collaboration. All contact data are collected from publicly available databases, and Advanced Research Journals ensures that all confidentiality agreements are respected.

Submission Phase

Authors who want to publish a manuscript in one of Advanced Research publications are invited to submit their work electronically by using our online Manuscript Tracking System. Full details about format requirements and submission procedures are available in the Author Center after registration. Authors will be given a password and will be carefully guided through the process of successfully preparing and uploading their chapters.

Review and Decision Phase

Every effort is exerted to ensure that manuscripts are efficiently reviewed and have high standards. Formal notifications of acceptance or rejection will be sent by e-mail together with the complete review outcome.

Book editors may invite reviewers to review the submitted chapters, although the book editors can review the chapters by themselves. After obtaining the reviewer reports, the book editors select papers with a high degree of relevance and bearing on developments in the field. Book editors have the overall responsibility for the content of the publication; therefore, they pay particular attention to originality, research methods, key results, and language.

Once the paper is accepted for publication, the corresponding author of the accepted paper has to prepare and upload a camera-ready version of the paper for us. For instructions on preparing a camera-ready version, please click HERE. Note that if the camera-ready version does not comply with our standard (especially if it differs greatly with our standard), we may have the rights not to publish your paper.

Publication Phase

Once all authors of a book have uploaded their camera-ready papers, we will begin the copy editing and typesetting phase. Note that during this stage, our editorial team will review each paper again to determine if the paper is suitable for publication. We reserve the rights not to publish a paper if it will deteriorate the quality of the publication. We will refund to you if you paid full publication fee but we decide not to publish your paper. Once we have decided to publish a paper and finished the copy editing and typesetting, authors will be asked to check the files for final approval prior to publishing. Once the contents have been proofread and the technical editing is completed, the book will be sent to print and will be published online immediately. All published chapters are freely accessible to a wide audience online.

The corresponding author will receive one complimentary hard copy of the publication free of charge unless Advanced Research Journals cannot contact the corresponding author by e-mail, or Advanced Research and the corresponding author have a mutual agreement on not delivering the hard copy of the book. All Advanced Research books are professionally designed (unique cover, not a stock photo) and printed on premium quality paper. The contents of most books are in full color.

During this phase, we will collect the publication fee from the contact authors.

Write a Journal Paper

What is a Pocket Journal?

The pocket journal is a new concept in the academe. It discusses the major ideas/frameworks of models or recent developments in some areas but does not require detailed or formal experiments. The papers can be viewed as experimental papers (but not newsletters). For example, a paper may: propose a new research direction, announce an innovative design/model, review/survey some papers/books/conferences, extend/expand a published paper (provided that both the published paper and the extended/expanded version are written by the same or similar set of authors), define a new problem (without a concrete solution) hoping for solving it by collective wisdom, etc. All work for the pocket journal must contain the following:

  • Solid motivations, i.e. why the problems are important
  • A detailed discussion on the major challenges, i.e., why existing work has not been able to solve them

This category of journals can achieve a high citation rate while providing a formal and convenient forum for researchers to exchange ideas.

What is a Regular Journal?

A regular journal has the same concept as the currently existing journals in the academe. Regular journal papers discuss specific topics in great detail. Usually, for a regular journal paper, a large volume of experiments (which should be replicable) are involved and a detailed discussion is necessary.
