Online first

SBJ offers an exclusive incentive to its contributors. Starting from forthcoming issue of Volume 16, all accepted final articles will be published online first with an exclusive DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The article will be included in the final print once the complete issue is ready to be published.

Benefits of Online First: Publishing Online first has numerous benefits to the authors and the readers. It will save the undesired time between acceptance and publication as the contributors don’t have to wait for the publication of a full print issue. Their manuscript will appear online while other articles are being finalized.

Your research will reach its readers more quickly, enabling an article to receive greater usage and exposure, including earlier citation opportunities.

This will be highly significant in case the authors have to use the published work in their respective institutions for performance review or rank promotions.
