Research Focus considers multiple types of submissions in the journal: Research Articles (peer-reviewed scholarly papers), Literature Review Research Articles (focused on specific topics), and Features (may include interviews or invited papers).
All submitted papers should be original, unpublished, and not in consideration for publication elsewhere at the time of submission to Research Focus.
Peer Review Process
All research articles will be refereed in a double-blind review process by at least two reviewers with expertise in the relevant subject area.
All literature review articles will be considered by the editorial team prior to being selected for publication and are not subject to peer review.
Research Focus uses PlagiarismDetector - plagiarism detection software - on all submitted manuscripts.
Research Focus publishes two issues per year. For the open issues, submissions are accepted any time. The open issues are published May/June and November/December. For the special issues, a call for submissions will be announced, with a deadline for publication within three months from the call was open.
