Spectrum of Emerging Sciences (SES)
SES is an open-access global publication for scientific articles that describe new findings in area of science and applied science, without any perceived evaluation of immediate impact.
SES will publish research studies that are of high technical quality and are useful to the community, rather than making subjective evaluations of potential impact. The diverse editorial board will peer review and publish all original research studies that meet SES’s high standards of scientific and methodological rigor. The journal will provide authors with fair, rapid and rigorous peer review.
Types of Paper
The journal publishes high quality Original Research Articles, Short Communications and Reviews. In addition, the journal also publishes Comments, Editorials, and Correspondences.
  • Original Research Articles: are full length papers describing a comprehensive study. Original Research Articles should be between 2000-5000 words and include a maximum of 80 references with maximum five (5) figures.
  • Short Communications: are letter style papers which provide an overview of recent progress in a rapidly progressing field. Short Communications should be between 1500-2000 words and include a maximum of 50 references. No limits are placed on the number of figures, although authors are requested to use an appropriate number of figures.
  • Reviews Article: are full length papers describing the status of a high interest field, providing both an introduction to the new reader, and insight for the experienced researcher. Reviews should be between 3500-9000 words and include a maximum of 200 references. No limits are placed on the number of figures, although authors are requested to use an appropriate number of figures.
Peer Review Process
Spectrum of Emerging Sciences (SES) Journal conducts a single anonymized review process. Firstly, all the contributions will be check by editors for suitability for the journal seems suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. The Editor's decision is final. Editors are not involved in decisions about papers which they have written themselves or have been written by family members or colleagues or which relate to products or services in which the editor has an interest. Any such submission is subject to all of the journal's usual procedures, with peer review handled independently of the relevant editor and their research groups.

Article Processing Flow Chart
Plagiarism Policy
Spectrum of Emerging Sciences (SES) will judge any case of plagiarism on its limits. If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor etc., in any stage of article process- before or after acceptance, during editing or at a page proof stage. We will alert the same to the author(s) and will ask them to rewrite the content or to cite the references from where the content has been taken. If more than 25% of the paper is plagiarized- the article may be rejected and the same is notified to the author.
Ethics topics to consider when publishing:
  • Authorship of the paper: Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. Transparency about the contributions of authors is encouraged, for example in the form of a CRediT author statement.
  • Originality and plagiarism: The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
  • Data access and retention: Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data.
  • Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication: An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Elsevier does not view the following uses of a work as prior publication: publication in the form of an abstract; publication as an academic thesis; publication as an electronic preprint. Note: some society-owned titles and journals that operate double-blind review have different policies on prior publication. Information on prior publication is included within each Elsevier journal’s guide for authors.
  • Acknowledgement of sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given.
  • Disclosure and conflicts of interest: All submissions must include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest.
  • Fundamental errors in published works: When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
  • Reporting standards: Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance.
  • Hazards and human or animal subjects: Statements of compliance are required if the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, or if it involves the use of animal or human subjects.
  • Use of patient images or case details: Studies on patients or volunteers require ethics committee approval and informed consent, which should be documented in the paper.
