What should I do if I need more time to correct the page proofs?

You should contact editor as soon as possible. Delays in returning page proofs can
result in publication delays, in print and online. If your article has been
scheduled for publication and you have not returned your page proofs on time,
the editor may pull it out from the issue

What should I do if I need more time to respond to reviewers?

You should contact editor to extend your time. If we don't receive your responses
on due time, the process of your manuscript will be stopped.

Do I have to answer each and every reviewer query?

Yes,it is necessary and very important that you answer each query, even if you
think the paper does not require correction. Sometimes, queries are asking for
updated information (references) or for missing citations of figures or tables
in the text.

Do you accept material published in other journals?

We cannot accept articles that have been previously published in other journals. However, we do understand that many submissions may be evolutions of previously published works. For this reason, we allow submissions to consist of no more than 35% previously published material.

May I volunteer as a reviewer?

We would be glad to have you review articles. If you would like to do so, please
send us your CV and a brief statement of your research interests to ijvm@ut.ac.ir

What are reasons for a desk reject decision?

The most common reason for a desk rejection is lack of novelty. Sometimes the paper
is out of the scope of the journal or it is better to publish in local or more
specific journals. In these cases, the editors will notify authors of such a
decision within a few weeks so that the author can find a more suitable journal
for their manuscript without losing too much time

Can I simultaneously send various manuscripts?

No. When you send a paper for peer review you must wait for the result. Once it is accepted and the peer review process is over, you can send another manuscript.

Do all the authors have to register on the website?

No. Only the corresponding author needs to do so.
