Before submitting your manuscript, thoroughly check its quality one more time. Evaluate it critically could anything be done better?
Be assure that:
Heading forward from Traditional Publishing has its own type of articles to be submitted and published. If you are planning to submit your article to Medwell Publications please choose one of the suitable categories for your article and summarize it within the proposed word limit before submission
Primary Research (Word Limit 2000 – 3000) that contributes to the base of scientific knowledge, including interdisciplinary, replication studies, and negative or null results. Download theManuscript Template.
Systematic Reviews (Word Limit 3000 - 3500) whose methods ensure the comprehensive and unbiased sampling of existing literature. DownloadDetailed Guidelines
Executive Summary (Word Limit 800 – 1000) includes a thorough overview of a research problem that provides key points for its readers, saving their time and preparing them to understand the scientific Approach. It must be written in such a summarized way that readers can rapidly become acquainted with a large set of data without needing the explanatory procedures. DownloadDetailed Guidelines to prepare your Executive Summary.
Short Communications (Word Limit 1000-1500) are short papers that present original and significant material for rapid dissemination. For example, a Short Communication may focus on a particular aspect of a problem or a new finding that is expected to have a significant impact. Short communication should be submitted the same way as a full-length paper. A maximum of 1500 words in the main text plus approximately ten references and normally no more than two illustrations (tables or figures or one of each). Short Communications should follow the same layout as primary research paper.
Editorials (Word Limit 1000) are short, invited opinion pieces that discuss an issue of immediate importance to the research community. Editorials should have fewer than 1000 words total, no abstract, a minimal number of references (definitely no more than 5), and no figures or tables (although they do have a photograph of the author as an illustration).
Focus (Word Limit 2500) articles are short, timely pieces that spotlight either recent research findings or policy issues related to research (for example, regulatory, funding, educational, or legislative discussions). Focus articles should not exceed 2500 words total (including abstract, main text, references and figure legend). They should have a short pithy title, a one-sentence abstract, no more than 10 references, and one figure (with figure legend) or table.
Perspectives discuss one or a cluster of recently published papers or a current research topic of high interest in which an author's perspective sheds an incisive light on key findings in research. These articles typically have one or two authors whose task is to inform our interdisciplinary readership about exciting scientific developments in the author's area of expertise. Other appropriate topics include discussions of methods, books, or meeting highlights. Perspectives are usually between 2000 and 4000 words total (including abstract, main text, references and figure legends). They should have a short pithy title, an abstract of 50 words or less, no more than 35 references, and 1 or 2 figures (with figure legends) or tables.
Commentaries (Word Limit 3000) present in-depth analysis of current issues such as policy, funding, regulatory, educational, and legislative issues, new institutes, careers etc. Commentaries should not exceed 3000 words total (including abstract, main text, references and figure legends). They should have a short pithy title, an abstract of 50 words or less, no more than 35 references, and one or two figures (with figure legends) or tables.
Industry News (Word Limit 250 – 400) short pieces that present new information about initiatives, products, services and developments in the field. These must not be promotional pieces about a product or service, and should make suitable reference to alternative systems, services, products or initiatives to place the update in context.

CRediT (Contributor Roles Taxonomy) was introduced with the intention of recognizing individual author contributions, reducing authorship disputes and facilitating collaboration. The idea came about in 2015 at a Harvard workshop and it became a collaborative effort led by the Welcome Trust and Digital Science, with input from publishers.

In order to maintain the integrity, transparency and reproducibility of research records, the authors must make their experimental and research data openly available either by depositing into data repositories or by publishing the data and files as supplementary information in this journal.
For work where novel computer code was developed, authors should release the code either by depositing in a recognized, public repository or uploading as supplementary information to the publication. The name and version of all software used should be clearly indicated.
Additional data and files can be uploaded as "Supplementary Files" during the manuscript submission process. The supplementary files will also be available to the referees as part of the peer-review process. Any file format is acceptable; however, we recommend that common, non-proprietary formats are used where possible.
Restrictions on data availability should be noted during submission and in the manuscript. "Data not shown" should be avoided: authors are encouraged to publish all observations related to the submitted manuscript as Supplementary Material. "Unpublished data" intended for publication in a manuscript that is either planned, "in preparation" or "submitted" but not yet accepted, should be cited in the text and a reference should be added in the References section. "Personal Communication" should also be cited in the text and reference added in the References section.
Data may be deposited with specialized service providers or institutional/subject repositories, preferably those that use the DataCite mechanism. Large data sets and files greater than 60 MB must be deposited in this way. For a list of other repositories specialized in scientific and experimental data, please consult databib.org or re3data.org. The data repository name, link to the data set (URL) and accession number, DOI or handle number of the data set must be provided in the paper. The journal Data also accepts submissions of data set papers.
New sequence information must be deposited to the appropriate database prior to submission of the manuscript. Accession numbers provided by the database should be included in the submitted manuscript. Manuscripts will not be published until the accession number is provided.
