Become an Editor

Are you looking for a book or a journal that is not in our collection?

At Advanced Research, we constantly strive to offer the best possible sources of academic resources and we are open to receiving your suggestions for new book titles and new journal titles. If you have ideas for topics that should be covered by future books, you are welcome to propose new titles in any of the academic fields.

Currently, we have three kinds of publications: books, regular journals, and pocket journals.

 Start Your Own Book

At Advanced Research, you can start your own book.

If you are working on or planning a research project and you wish to publish your findings, we invite you to publish your work with us. You can choose to publish your work as:

  • A single-author monograph: a specialized book written by one main author
  • A multiple-author monograph: a book written by more than one author
  • An edited book: a book in which each chapter is written by different contributors and edited by one or more scholars
  • Conference proceedings: a collection of selected academic papers that are presented in the context of an academic conference

These four kinds of publications are published online under the open-access model. Open access means that everything we publish is immediately available online for free.

How does an individual become a book editor?

If you want to become a book editor, please send us a proposal that should include the following:

Your CV with a list of publication and editorial experience
A tentative title for the journal
The scope and topics covered by the journal
An outline of the potential audience
A tentative list of members of the editorial team (if any)
A benchmark of the most influential journals in the field (competitors)

The proposal would provide us with a general idea of your publishing perspectives and concepts, which we would present to our Editorial Board for their consideration and approval.

Start Your Own Journal

You can start your own journal. Send us a proposal and we will present your idea to the Journal Department. You can choose from two kinds of journals: Pocket Journals and Regular Journals.

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 our 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.
How does an individual become a journal editor??

The prerequisites for launching a journal are time and professional dedication. A committed and experienced editor who will lead the project is mandatory, and good project and content management skills are basic requirements.

If you want to become a journal editor, please send us a proposal that includes the following:

  • Your CV with a list of publication and editorial experience
  • A tentative title for the journal
  • The scope and topics of the journal
  • An outline of the potential audience
  • A tentative list of members of the editorial team (if any)
  • A benchmark of the most influential journals in the field (competitors)

If the proposal is accepted, the proponent’s first responsibility will be to obtain the commitment of the members of the Editorial Board. The proponent will take responsibility for the published content and will encourage submissions from the best and brightest authors in the field.

As your publisher, Advanced Research will provide the journal with an ISSN number and will handle all administrative tasks during the launching period. Our professional staff and an advanced Manuscript Tracking System for submitting and reviewing articles will be at your disposal. We will provide online visibility by creating the Web pages of the journal as part of our Web site. Our experienced team of publishing professionals will work on indexing the journal in the most important and relevant databases.
