Propose Special Issue Title

Introduction

There is a saying- "Science has as many wits as there are people capable of seizing it."

This axiom is a complete fit when we talk about special issues of journals. A Special Issue is not only a collection of papers on a particular theme within the scope of the journals but also a deep analysis of different aspects about the chosen subject.

Peertechz special issue of journals is an insight of your knowledge frontier and a record for your research progress. Moreover, if an author proposes a special issue on any Peertechz's journals, he/she has an opportunity to become a lead Guest Editor. Therefore the authors, researchers, clinicians and others with scientific writing skills and a particular interest, may avail themselves to this opportunity and propose a Special Issue as the Lead Guest Editor.

Benefits

A special issue of the journal provides a number of benefits to the authors and editors who focus on a current "hot" topic as well as to the journal. For example, taking a leadership role as a Guest Editor or contributing editor or co-author in formulating a special issue may:

  • It offers a well-defined location for papers that relate to a common theme
  • It acts as promoter for a developing field by providing highly visible forum for the topic
  • It encourages authors to submit high quality work by providing them with a focused review process and publication schedule.
  • It promotes clarity of the subject, experimental soundness and advances in knowledge
  • Generate publicity and raise awareness of the scope of topics covered in the journal
  • Encourage new authors to submit their work
  • Attract new readers and subscribers to the journal
  • Increase downloads and citations
  • Provide an opportunity to experiment with innovative or unusual content
  • Publish with a group of other editors

How Do Special Issues Work?

Editors or authors who have particular topic or theme for a Special Issue that is within the scope of the journals should contact the Peertechz editorial team. Peertechz also offer assistance in identifying suitable topics by analysing keyword and citation trends within the field.
