As an author you may benefit from the following powerful tools that our platform provides:

  • ALERTING – Would you like to know when your article will appear on the platform? Create a free account and receive automatic notifications about newly published issues of selected journals directly into your inbox.
  • ADVANCED SEARCH – Having trouble deciding whether a selected journal publishes papers from your area of expertise, or looking for your own recently published paper? Use our advanced searching options in order to browse content in a fast and efficient way. Go to the archive of the selected journal and chose one of the available options:

- Search within content / find article - located on the left, just above the list of articles – you can either use the search box and type directly what kind of article you are looking for or specify in which volume and issue it is located.

- Sort by - sorts articles within an issue according to their type, category or page number.

  • LIVE REFERENCE LINKS – according to readers, reference linking is one of the most significant advantages of electronic publishing. In today’s fast-paced world, the ability to get immediate access to a full-text document from the citation list becomes increasingly important. Exeley offers extensive linking services from material published on its platform to the cited data via the CrossRef linking system and allocation of Digital Object Identifier (DOI) numbers. The established links lead to other cited papers on Exeley.com, abstracting and indexing services, as well as other publishers’ websites, thereby maximizing the online potential of your content.

Since it is vital to provide correct bibliographic data in your papers in order to allow the platform to connect to other documents, please check CrossRef’s guidelines regarding citation of DOI numbers.

  • EXTRA FILES – do you have supplementary files to accompany your manuscript? Exeley’s platform allows you to add a number of extra materials. The following formats are supported: .doc; .docx; .txt; .xls; .xlsx; .jpg; .jpeg; .png; .ppt; .mp3; .mp4; .wav; .3gp; .pdf; .zip.
  • GRAPHICAL ABSTRACT – Exeley assists in the creation of graphical abstracts and highly encourages you to take advantage of this option. A graphical abstract is a single image that plays the role of a visual summary of the main findings and gives the readers an immediate understanding of the key points of the article. A graphical abstract encourages browsing, helps other scholars to identify which papers are most relevant to their research, boosts citability and is a great promotional tool for sharing in social media sites.
  • ARTICLE METRICS – Exeley provides you with a broad range of various metrics and statistical data so that you can check the performance of your article. The metrics are divided into three groups: Real Time Stats, PlumX and Social Media. This button can be found on each individual article page above the article title: 

- Real Time Stats - give you an overview of visits and page views, the average time a reader spends on an article page and the origin of visitors according to their country, and other geographical details.

- PlumX -  is the altmetrics tracking product provided by Plum Analytics in collaboration with EBSCO. PlumX records all scientific output, regardless of its form, and divides it into five categories: usage, mentions, captures, social media and citations. The data goes beyond measuring the statistics for downloaded articles, and also reports on blog and media posts, datasets, letters, interviews, and webpages. PlumX collects information on clicks, likes, comments, views, downloads, citation indexes and much more, unifying the information in the form of a colorful widget.

       

 - Social Media – records the tweets and posts that mention the published papers, giving you an overview of their impact on individuals and communities using social media sites.

           

  • EXPORT CITATION – Your fellow scientists and colleagues can now easily cite your article by using the “Export Citation” button at the top of the article page. The platform provides citation data in the three most common referencing styles, as well as the source files that can be easily uploaded into most popular bibliographic management tools. This method ensures that your paper is always correctly cited and does not lose citation counts as the result of errors.
  • RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN – At Exeley, we know that data accessibility and smooth navigation of content are very important. Our platform provides you with responsive web design so that you can read content on the go, on any smartphone or tablet, and benefit from fast and easy web browsing.

- Social Media Integration – click on the “share” button under the “comments” tab or at the top of the page of any article in order to connect with the most popular social media sites.

- Email – do you prefer to send a personalized message directly to your friend’s email box? Chose the “email” option available at the top of the article page.

By sharing your work, you will help to generate interest about the article, create a bigger impact with your research and increase its visibility - potentially increasing downloads and citations as well.

 

HOW TO WRITE A SCIENTIFIC PAPER

 

Organization of Data:

  • Describe the methods and results - including procedures, techniques, statistical methods, equipment, or software programmes used. Do so in a way that will allow the readers to reproduce the study. Decide on a logical order of presented data and use international and widely accepted standards for nomenclature and numbers.
  • Prepare the figures and tables - illustrations are more efficient in presenting the data than words; make sure that they are self-explanatory and easy to interpret.
  • Finalize the findings and discussion - demonstrate the significance of your research, results received and how they relate to your primary goals and hypotheses. Explain  the future implications of the findings. One way you can do this is by making a list of all of the ideas and explaining the relationships between them.
  • Write a clear conclusion - present the outcome of the work, summarize the main points and interpret the results. Conclusions may be included in the discussion section as a last paragraph, or placed in a separate section.
  • Prepare a persuasive introduction - explain your motivation for the study and give  context to those readers that may be less familiar with the subject matter. The introduction should answer the some of the following questions: What problem are you going to study? What solutions to this problem currently exist? Which method is the best and what are its limitations? What are your goals and what result do you hope to achieve?

 

Organization of  the Manuscript:

  • Write an abstract – the abstract is an extremely important part of the paper. The abstract is the main summary of the article as well as first text that readers are exposed to before having access to your full article. Based on your summary, the reader will decide whether they read the whole paper or not. Make sure that your abstract contains both goals and leading conclusions from the study, and provides description of methods and parameters used.
  • Decide on a concise title – the title should be limited, but at the same time descriptive; it is often the first thing that attracts the readers.
  • Write the acknowledgements – this is especially important when the work was funded by a grant.  The grant number or reference must be provided.
  • Decide on appropriate keywords - keywords play a pivotal role when it comes to indexing in abstracting services as a lot of researchers use them to find papers on a given topic. Make sure that your keywords not only reflect the subject field of your paper, but are also commonly used. Using popular keywords will help your article appear more frequently in search results.
  • Collect and check the list of references - when organizing your bibliography, refer to the instructions for authors of a journal where you intend to send your manuscript. Each journal has its own unique style, so make sure that your references are structured according to the manual provided. You can use one of the bibliographic software packages to format the references correctly, or check what is their correct citation using CrossRef search.
