How to write and publish a paper in a journal indexed in Web of Science: a closer look to Eastern European economics, business and management journals
AbstractScientific research publishing carries huge importance for the development of the society. Apart from the dissemination of knowledge, there are also motives for publication of scientific research results at the level of individual reserachers: it might be a requirement for graduation or promotion, and there is also an individuals’s wish to be recognized as a respectable researcher. Depending on how difficult it is for a paper to get accepted for publishing, publications can be ranged from the least difficult to the most difficult to get published in, in the following order: a book chapter, a conference, a non-indexed journal and an indexed journal. Journals are currently indexed in two databases: Scopus and Web of Science. Of the two, Web of Science has a long tradition and is formally accepted in a number of countries and institutions as an indicator of the quality of an indexed journal. Hence, publication in a journal that is indexed in Web of Science is an important venue for scientific researchers, although previously published papers indicate that there are substantial obstacles for researchers from developing countries. When considering writing for publication, four critical questions emerge: (1) How to pick a topic that is relevant for publication?, (2) How to select a journal for possible publication of research results?, (3) How to structure the paper in accordance with the IMRAD format?, and (4) How to efficiently write the paper?. The goal of the paper is to propose simple, yet highly applicable advice when answering these questions and thus pursuing the publication of a paper in a scientific journal providing a closer look to economics, business and management journals indexed in Web of Science that focus on Eastern European countries.
