Frequently Asked Questions:
- Can I submit an abstract?
The journal publishes full research papers. So only full paper submission should be considered for possible publication. Papers with insufficient content may be rejected as well, make sure your paper is sufficient enough to be published.
- Should I revise the paper as your journal template before submission?
Yes. You’re supposed to format your paper first by following the paper template before submission. If not, extra charges might be made for formating paper.
- Does your journal provide English language support? Will the editors help to revise the paper if my English writing is not good enough?
Manuscripts that are accepted for publication will be checked by our editors for spelling and formal style. This may not be sufficient if English is not your native language and substantial editing would be required. In that case, you may want to have your manuscript edited by a native speaker prior to submission. A clear and concise language will help editors and reviewers concentrate on the scientific content of your paper and thus smooth the peer review process.
- What is the impact factor of your journal?
Today SNSSPU is calculating its own Impact Factor by applying Thomson Reuters' algorithm based on Google Scholar's citation counts. 5 Year Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published since 2010 with the number of times they are cited during 2014-2018 based on Google Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published until 2018, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals since 2014 then, journal impact factor = Y/X
- How much is the Article Processing Charge?
Article processing charge for papers prepared according to SNSSPU template before submission is: 1 € per page. If not, extra charges might be made for formating paper.

- Will my article be reviewed?
Peer review exists to ensure that journals publish good science. This benefits the entire scientific community. Sometimes scientists find the peer review process intimidating because it can lead to the rejection of their manuscript. Keep in mind that revisions and improvement are part of the publication process and actually help raise the quality of your manuscript.

Peer reviewers are experts who volunteer their time to help improve the journal manuscripts they review-they offer authors free advice.
