Paper Selection and Publishing Process

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out. However, we accept submissions that have previously presented at conferences; or have previously appeared in other “non-journal” venues (for example: blogs or posters).

Copyrights for articles are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. Authors have rights to reuse, republish, archive, and distribute their own articles after publication. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work.

Benefits of Publishing a Special Issue with OSP

i) Submission Acknowledgement

When you submit a manuscript online, you will receive a submission acknowledgement letter sent by the online system automatically. For email submission, the editor or editorial assistant sends an e-mail confirmation to the submission’s author within one to three working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, please check your bulk email box or contact the editorial assistant.

ii) Basic Review

The editor or editorial assistant determines whether the manuscript fits the journal’s focus and scope. Next a check for the similarity rate is done using plagiarism checking software.

iii) Peer Review

We use a double-blind system for peer review; both reviewers’ and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The submitted manuscript will be reviewed by at least two experts: one editorial staff member as well as one to three external reviewers. The review process may take two to four weeks.

iv) Decision Is Made

The decision to accept or reject an article is based on the suggestions of reviewers.

v) Notification of the Result of Review

The result of review will be sent to the corresponding author and forwarded to other authors.

vi) Publication Fee Is Paid

If the submission is accepted, the authors revise paper and pay the publication fee.

vii) Publication Notice

The authors and readers will be notified and invited to visit our website for the newly published articles.
