The JENT publishing process step by step
1. Find the right journal
The first step is finding the right journal for your paper. Among the thousands of journals and books published by JENT are some of the world's most prominent and respected medical, scientific and technological publications. These include The Lancet, Cell, Tetrahedron Letters and a host of others. Find a journal match for your abstract by clicking on the blue ‘Start matching’ button above.
2. Prepare your paper
Each journal has its own aims & scope as well as requirements for publication so it is important you select a journal and download the Guide for Authors for that journal to prepare your paper.
3. Submit your paper
Nearly all of JENT’s journals use the JENT Editorial System (JENTES) for managing the submission and peer-review process. This allows you to submit your paper online, reviewers to referee and editors to manage the peer-review process online.
4. Check Status
Once your paper has been submitted, you can check the status throughout the peer-review process and journal production process. More background information can be found in this comprehensive guide Understanding the publishing process. It covers topics such as using JENTES, Authors' Rights, Ethics & Plagiarism, the Impact Factor and other so-called bibliometric indicators.
