Requests for revisions occur frequently as part of the editorial review process. Having a submission accepted with no queries, comments, or proposed edits raised may indicate less rigour in the publication process.
Address comments and suggested revisions:
- in a systematic and courteous way
- by clearly outlining the changes made in response to reviewer comments
- by making a case for why suggested changes were not made
- indicating agreement on responses and amendments from co-authors.
After manuscript acceptance you will normally be asked to complete a Copyright Transfer Agreement.
Read and check the agreement to:
- understand the details
- see what rights you retain
- know what version can be deposited in the University repository, GRO
- this may be a requirement for funded research and may increase your citations.
A digital object identifier ( DOI ) is a persistent, unique identifier assigned by publishers to research outputs. It ensures the original output is findable, unlike a URL which may change when outputs are moved or reorganised.
The format of a DOI is:
Assign a DOI to:
- provide permanent access to your research output
- allow attribution and tracking of citation metrics
- comply with funder and publisher requirements for data availability.
If you require a DOI for non-traditional outputs, such as, working papers, reports, creative works, or datasets contact the Library.
An International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a unique identifer for books, either print or electronic.
To be included in the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) submission, books and book chapters must have an ISBN and meet the requirements for:
Your publisher will arrange an ISBN for your publication. If Griffith University or an element within Griffith is your publisher and you require an ISBN contact the Library.
An International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is a unique identifier for serial publications, for example, journals.
The library does not assign an ISSN for serials published by Griffith University.
If you require an ISSN for a new journal or other serial publication submit an application with the Australian ISSN agency.
DEPOSIT IN NATIONAL AND STATE LIBRARIES
If you publish in Australia you are legally required to deposit a copy of your publication with the National Library of Australia. When publishing in Queensland you are also required to deposit a copy of your publication with both the State Library of Queensland and the Queensland Parliamentary Library.
When publishing with a journal or another publisher they will arrange for the legal deposit of the publication on behalf of the author. If you request a DOI, ISBN or ISSN it is your responsibility to legally deposit your publication.
A work is deemed to have been 'published' if reproductions of the work or edition have been made available (whether by sale or otherwise) to the public. Electronic publications and recordings are included in legal deposit.
Include a copy of your publication in the University Library's collection, although this is not a legal requirement. Send to:
- Scholarly Resource Services N53 0.03
- Griffith University Library
- Nathan 4111
