Acadlore Publication Services: We offer superior services to our authors, reviewers, editors, librarians, publishers, societies, and conference organizers.
For Conference Organizers
Acadlore is fully committed to editorial independence, and embedding diversity and promoting equity in our editorial process. We strongly prohibit any discrimination against any party, namely, authors, reviewers, and editors, based on personal features or identity. Diversity of our contributors is highly valued. We welcome submissions from contributors of diverse backgrounds, including nationality, religion, race, and gender identity, to name but a few.
We do not tolerate any abusive behavior or correspondence towards our staff members, and reserve the right to take actions against this abuse, such as manuscript withdrawal or challenging abusive comments of peer reviewers. The integrity of our editorial process is overseen by the entire editorial team. Below is a step-by-step explanation of our entire publication procedure.
Once an article is submitted, our professional managing editor will decide whether the article meets the publication ethics, fits the scope of the journal, and is scientifically sound. The decision will be made in consultation with experts in relevant fields. If the article is deemed as suitable, it will be sent for peer review. Otherwise, it will be rejected, or returned to the authors for revision and resubmission.
Once the article passes the initial assessment, it will be peer reviewed by at least two independent reviewers selected by the professional in-house editor. The reviewers are preferably experts in the relevant fields.
Potential reviewers suggested by the authors may also be considered. The reviewers must be independent from the authors and their institutions, qualified for evaluating the technical aspects of the article, and available to evaluate the article within the required period.
The peer review will be double blind, where the authors and reviewers do not know the identities of each other. At least two review reports are collected for each submitted article. Acadlore ensures that the peer review is efficient, rigorous, and fair for everyone involved.
Every article published in Acadlore journals go through a peer review by at least two reviewers. Review decisions are made by our academic editor, according to the reviewer comments on each article. The academic editor checks several issues before making a decision:
- Whether the selected reviewers are suitable;
- Whether the reviewer comments and author response are adequate;
- Whether the work is of high scientific quality.
Next, the professional in-house editor will communicate, via our own manuscript processing system, the review decision on your submission, which will be one of the following:
The article is rejected due to the technical objections raised by the reviewers, e.g., the lack of contribution of the research contents.
The article will have a good opportunity of being accepted for publication, after it is significantly modified according to the reviewer comments. The authors need to respond to the comments point by point, or provide a clear response if they disagree with some comments. Normally, only one round of major revision is allowed. The revised article will be sent to the reviewers for another round of review. The major revisions should be completed within a suitable period.
The article will be accepted for publication in principle, after it is properly revised according to the reviewer comments. The revised article will not be sent to the reviewers again. Our dedicated in-house editor will check if the revision is satisfactory, and the revised article meets the formal requirements. Five days are given for minor revisions.
The article is accepted without any further revision.
Copy editing is the process of revising the accepted manuscript to improve readability and fitness, and that text is in line with the formatting guide. A trained and experienced copy editor makes simple revisions to smooth awkward passages, identify structural and organizational problems, and offer suggestions on how to address these problems.
Language editing, also known as linguistic editing, mainly involves correcting grammatical mistakes, spelling, usage, and punctuation. Our professional in-house editors will correcting grammatical mistakes, resolve punctuation mistakes, fix misspellings, solve word usage errors, and eliminate biased language in your article for free.
Proofreading is a safety net that ensures that the author and copy editor did not miss anything. A proofreader will meticulously comb through the proof to see if any mistake is missed by the copy editor, or if a mistake is accidently introduced during the production process. In addition to typos, the mistakes may include: incorrect page numbers, inaccurate indices, text misalignment, additional/missing spaces, and incorrect paragraphing.
At the final stage of publication, a professional in-house editor will produce the final files of your article for online publication. Every operation of this stage is completed swiftly in our independently developed online management system, such as layout setting, format selection, and file generation.
Paid language service
Before copy editing, the authors can ask for paid language service from Acadlore to further improve the readability of their articles. Experienced language workers will focus on the following aspects: improving sentence structure, improving flow, solving usage controversies, improving clarity and style, fact-checking, and addressing any errors or discrepancies in content.
