At present, to publish the paper in Sci / Scopus is totally commercial and due to this the economical week researchers are not capable to submit the research papers in such type of journals. 600 to 800 dollars is publication fee and it is not considered by the govt. organizations.

Dear Annal,
You will find a lot of journals which are publishing not only review articles but research articles with in a month; in fact they can publish within a week.  But the publishers don't have that reputation and not widely accepted by international research community. 
I would suggest you that you should submit your work in peer reviewed journals and wait for the reviewers comments. It will also help you to learn and will boost your confidence.
Good Luck.

Another list of grey-zone open access publishers is found here:
It all comes down to what you mean by "free journals". Do you mean "without charge" or "open access"? Both would qualify as "free" I suppose.

Beware of predatory journals. Such journals will promise to publish your work at the fastest time possible but may end up just taking your money.
At the end of the day, a credible, peer-reviewed journal will provide the right amount of time in reviewing articles. Find those kinds of journals.
I know this will be one of the topics to be discussed in the international convention of the Asia Pacific Association of Medical Journal Editors (APAME). If you can, register and participate. Better yet, send in your abstract.

Dear Annal Abel, 
I compared the Review Speed, Impact Factor, and Open Access Fee from Elsevier, Springer, and Hindawi. The results are as follows:
Average Review Speed (in months):
Elsevier: 7.676
Springer: 2.640
Hindawi: 2.564
Average Impact Factors:
Elsevier: 1.900
Springer: 1.266
Hindawi: 0.319
Open Access Fee:
Elsevier: 2400 USD
Springer: 3000 USD
Hindawai: 877 USD
What is interesting, the difference of average impact between Elsevier and Springer is only 0.766 but Springer is about 5 months faster. If we wanted open access publication in Springer, however, we need to add USD 600 more.

In case of Hindawi, most of Hindawi's Journal does not have impact factors. For such Journals, the open access publication fee might cost USD 600 - 800 and some even free. When they do have impact factor, however, they cost USD 2000. I wonder why they charge us (as authors) more, where in fact the authors are the ones that have helped them to get their paper got the impact factors (smile) ? I think it would be better to provide discount for authors that already publish they work in the Journals (just my two cents).

Dear Annal Abel,
I updated the Elsevier list with a new column: Acceptance Rate, based on Elsevier Journal Finder results. In my view, there is a correlation between the Impact Factors and Acceptance Rate. As writers, we generally want a good Impact Factors Journal with higher Acceptance Rate. Thus, I make a new column, i.e., Acceptance Rate times Average Impact Factors. Hope this would be helpful.

  • Publication speed is one factor that many authors take into account when choosing a journal.
  • The time from submission to publication in a peer reviewed journal can be split into three phases:
  1. The time from submission from the first decision
  2. The time needed for the authors to revise
  3. The time from acceptance to publication

@ Chuks Kenneth Odoh, you must realise that the time spend in review is not always a true reflection of quality criticism of the manuscript. Most time, the reviewer may be too busy to work on the manuscript in time. As a matter of personal standard, I do not hold on to a manuscript more than a week if asked to review. And i give my best contribution based on my understanding of the subject matter. To link review time with qualitative criticism is NOT correct. What matter most is the reputation of the journals you are sending your manuscript to. Haven said that... In actual fact, most free and reputable journals take considerable time with review process. This is mainly because of the pressure from many respected scholars for a chance to publish their research findings. However, if time is not a factor, i would recommend you sort journals by their submission fee requirement on the Directorate of Open Access Journal (DOAJ). I used this for years now and it been helpful to identify Journals with no submission or publication fees. I hope this helps.

What if someone's paper were seen there ? , it means that that paper can not be published in any other journals anymore or not If anyone knows what this library is, then kindly ask for an answer as soon as possible.

The "publish or perish" policy is making academicians desperate. One of my senior colleague would say, "Publish actively because you are a scholar, do not publish to target promotion". If you do the latter, you actually would have quality publication cuz your focus is improving yourself. If you target promotion, there is a tendency to go to rest after every promotion only to wake up few months to the next. Hence the bedrock of desperation. More so, such personality tend to stop writing or conduction research as soon as they get to the zenith of their career (e.g. Professor). The choice is yours to make.

How long a manuscript stays for review depends on a number of things;
1. Availability of qualified persons to review such paper; if the editor is able to find two good scholars to review the manuscript, it is possible to receive the review comments within 4-5 weeks of manuscript submission.
2. If there are no experts available to review the manuscript, it may take much time for the review comments to be returned to the author since the editor will have to wait until suitable candidates are found to review the manuscript.
However, i'll want to correct an impression that the longer a Journal publisher stays with your manuscript, the better the quality of the publisher.
Two experts in field of education, social sciences, arts and humanities can review a 15 pages manuscript within 2 weeks if the individuals truly have the time to review the manuscript. So, scholars should quit the idea that because a Journal holds your manuscript more than 2 months, then the manuscript is undergoing quality review. Although, publishers know their time tables for publishing accepted papers.
But, scholars should know that publishing is a business, whether Elsevier, Sage, Taylor and Francis, etc. They are all business companies making money either legitimately or illegitimately from scholars. So, when you brag about quality of a publisher, also look deep to see see the other side of the coin.
I rest my case!

Like so many, I am shocked and saddened at seeing war break out in Europe. My thoughts – and those of the ResearchGate team – are with the people of Ukraine and everyone affected.
ResearchGate is an international company, whose purpose is to enable scientists across the world to work together openly and collaboratively, regardless of borders or nationality. We have people from over 40 countries on our staff of around 200, and being based in Berlin, we are profoundly aware of the human cost of conflicts, the echoes of which have shaped and scarred our home city. We join with the international community in condemning the actions of the Russian state.
We have been asking ourselves: What can we do?
From today, we will offer free advertising space worth $2.5 million on our network to humanitarian organizations working to respond to the crisis. ResearchGate benefits from over 50 million visitors every month, and we hope this initiative can help raise funds and awareness for those organizations that are having direct impact and need support.
We also want to use our platform to highlight the response from the scientific community. Personally, I have found the messages of support from scientists everywhere to be truly heartfelt, and I would like to highlight some of the community initiatives I’ve seen here:
Additionally, I’m posting here some of the organizations responding to the crisis and actively soliciting donations:
To help gather more support for these initiatives, please consider sharing this post further (you don’t need a ResearchGate account to see it), and I will continue to update it with other initiatives as I find them.
