How do I submit an article for publication in the journal?

Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically by using the Journal of Plant Production online submission and review Website at http://plantproduction.scu.ac.ir/.

To submit an article, authors should send the four following files to the journal:

  1. Manuscript main file (blinded)

  2. Title page (including authors’ information)

  3. Authorship declaration form signed by all authors

  4. Figures and tables files: Figures and tables need to be original not printed.

2. How can I track the status of my article?

One month after submitting a manuscript to the journal, authors can expect to receive the initial review result from the editor. Otherwise, a follow-up letter should be sent to the managing editor at plantproduction@scu.ac.ir. It should be noted that manuscript ID, manuscript title, corresponding author and a phone number for later correspondence should be included in the letter. You can also call the Journal’s office on Sundays and Tuesdays at 10:00 to 13:00 and find out about the status of your submitted paper to the journal.

3. How many reviewers are usually assigned to do the initial review of the submitted article?

   - There will be at least two reviewers.

Is reviewers’ information disclosed to authors?

- No. Reviewers’ information is not disclosed to authors. This journal follows a double-blind peer review process.

Is a comparative reviewer selected from one of the reviewers who has already reviewed the article?

In most cases, yes. The revised manuscript along with a file including authors’ response to reviewers’ comments will be sent to one of the reviewers who has already reviewed the article. In some cases, if we do not receive a timely response from him, another reviewer will be assigned to do the review job.
