  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    London Journal publishes peer-reviewed, original research and review articles in an open access format. Accepted articles span the full extent of the social and behavioral sciences and the humanities.

    London Journal seeks to be the world’s premier open access outlet for academic research. As such, unlike traditional journals, London Journal does not limit content due to page budgets or thematic significance. Rather, London Journal evaluates the scientific and research methods of each article for validity and accepts articles solely on the basis of the research. Likewise, by not restricting papers to a narrow discipline, London Journal facilitates the discovery of the connections between papers, whether within or between disciplines.

    London Journal offers authors quick review and decision times; a continuous-publication format; and global distribution for their research via SAGE Journals Online. All articles are professionally copyedited and typeset to ensure quality.

  • Publication Ethics

    Publication ethics

    Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public trust in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their ideas. It is important to avoid:

    • Data fabrication and falsification:

    Data fabrication means the researcher did not actually do the study, but faked the data. Data falsification means the researcher did the experiment, but then changed some of the data.

    • Plagiarism:

    Taking the ideas and work of other scientists without giving them credit is unfair and dishonest. Copying even one sentence from someone else’s manuscript, or even one of your own that has previously been published, without proper citation is considered plagiarism—use your own words instead.

    • Multiple submissions:

    It is unethical to submit the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time. Doing this wastes the time of editors and peer reviewers, and can damage the reputation of the authors and the journals if published in more than one journal as the later publication will have to be retracted.

    • Redundant publications (or ‘salami’ publications):

    This means publishing many very similar manuscripts based on the same experiment. Combining your results into one very robust paper is more likely to be of interest to a selective journal. Editors are likely to reject a weak paper that they suspect is a result of salami slicing.

    • Improper author contribution or attribution:

    All listed authors must have made a significant scientific contribution to the research in the manuscript and approved all its claims. Don’t forget to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution, including students and laboratory technicians. Do not “gift” authorship to those who did not contribute to the paper.

  • Indexing and Abstracting

    Indexing & Abstracting

    Please note that it is ATINER’s strict policy never to apply to be indexed in any database that asks money to process it. In addition, all ATINER’s activities, including publications, must strictly adhere to ATINER’s mission –– and policy – – which would never change to meet the requirements of any private or non-private organization which indexes journals.  Some/all ATINER’s journals have been accepted after review in the following databases:

  • FAQ

    How much does it cost to publish in a Springer journal?

    For the majority of Springer journals, publishing an article is free of charge.

    • If a journal requires page charges, you will find them on the journal's homepage or in its Instructions for Authors.
    • Charges might apply e.g. for color figures or over-length articles. The information on these extra costs will also be available from the journal's homepage or its Instructions for Authors.
    • Charges for open access articles:
      If you choose to publish an open access article (as "Open Choice" or in a SpringerOpen journal), there will be an Article Processing Charge (APC) to be paid by the author or his/her funding institution. As a consequence, the article can be freely read,

    How do I submit my article?

    Please click “Submit Online” on the journal's homepage and directly access the submission system used by that journal.

    Can I submit my manuscript if it contains part of my PhD or academic thesis?

    Springer will consider submissions containing material that has previously formed part of a PhD or other academic thesis including those that have been made publicly available according to the requirements of the institution awarding the qualification.

    Can I include my ORCID iD when submitting a manuscript?

    Yes, we are using ORCID iDs in our manuscript submission systems, Editorial Manager and Manuscript Central. When submitting your manuscript, you can fetch and add your ORCID iD. To register a new or existing ORCID number, log in to the editorial system and select 'Edit My Account' or 'Update My Information' from the menu.

    Can I publish my manuscript open access?

    Yes, Springer offers Open Choice (open access articles published in subscription-based journals) and fully open access journals. Read more about our open access portfolio here.

    Does Springer provide templates and style files for preparing a journal article?

    For your convenience we have developed macros and templates to help you prepare your manuscript. Information about the preferred format for the individual journals can be found in the specific journal’s Instructions for Authors.

    Can I submit multimedia files to be published online along with my article?

    Springer accepts electronic supplementary material (animations, movies, audio, large original data, etc.) which will be published in the online version only. This feature can add dimension to the article, as certain information cannot be printed or is more convenient in electronic form. For detailed information about file formats, file size, etc, please check our ESM guidelines.

    Can you give me more information about copyright?

    Authors will be asked to agree to the publication terms of their article to the publisher (or grant the publisher exclusive publication and dissemination rights). This will ensure the widest possible protection and dissemination of information under copyright laws.
    Open access articles (Open Choice articles or fully open access journals) do not require you to transfer the copyright; the copyright remains with the authors.
    By opting for Open Choice, you agree to publish your article under the Creative Commons Attribution License (since January 16, 2012). Articles published before that date are subject to the Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial License.

    What exactly is the "MyPublication" service and how can I benefit from it?

    The "MyPublication" service facilitates all administrative tasks after your article has been accepted by the journal. You can sign the terms of publication online, decide whether your article should be published open access, whether your figures should appear in color if available. Most importantly, this new process significantly reduces the production time of your article.

  • Peer Review Process

    1. Submission of Paper

    The corresponding or submitting author submits the paper to the journal. This is usually via an online system such as Scholar-One Manuscripts. Occasionally, journals may accept submissions by email.


    2. Editorial Office Assessment

    The journal checks the paper’s composition and arrangement against the journal’s Author Guidelines to make sure it includes the required sections and stylizations. The quality of the paper is not assessed at this point.


    3. Appraisal by the Editor-in-Chief (EIC)

    The EIC checks that the paper is appropriate for the journal and is sufficiently original and interesting. If not, the paper may be rejected without being reviewed any further.


    4. EIC Assigns an Associate Editor (AE)

    Some journals have Associate Editors who handle the peer review. If they do, they would be assigned at this stage.


    5. Invitation to Reviewers

    The handling editor sends invitations to individuals he or she believes would be appropriate reviewers. As responses are received, further invitations are issued, if necessary, until the required number of acceptances is obtained – commonly this is 2, but there is some variation between journals.


    6. Response to Invitations

    Potential reviewers consider the invitation against their own expertise, conflicts of interest and availability. They then accept or decline. If possible, when declining, they might also suggest alternative reviewers.


    7. Review is Conducted

    The reviewer sets time aside to read the paper several times. The first read is used to form an initial impression of the work. If major problems are found at this stage, the reviewer may feel comfortable rejecting the paper without further work. Otherwise they will read the paper several more times, taking notes so as to build a detailed point-by-point review. The review is then submitted to the journal, with a recommendation to accept or reject it – or else with a request for revision (usually flagged as either major or minor) before it is reconsidered.


    8. Journal Evaluates the Reviews

    The handling editor considers all the returned reviews before making an overall decision. If the reviews differ widely, the editor may invite an additional reviewer so as to get an extra opinion before making a decision.


    9. The Decision is Communicated

    The editor sends a decision email to the author including any relevant reviewer comments. Whether the comments are anonymous or not will depend on the type of peer review that the journal operates.
