We welcome proposals for special issues on topics that fall under the scope of the journal. Special issues are focused on a specialized topic that is of current interest. Special Issues should be organized by experts in the field of interest and attract high quality articles.
Nowadays, there is a need to solve more and more complex optimization problems in industry, science, engineering, and many other domains. In order to do so, MNK Publication support, publishes and define two types of special issues. One category is standard Special Issue where journal editorial/reviewer board members or Guest Editor chairs the overall activity of the special issue from submission to final publication. Other category is conference special issue, where selected conference papers are published by conference organizers under a single special issue.
Editorial Board - To strengthen their research profile and to support their research funding.
Conference Organizers - To give extra credit to conference publications.
Supervisors - To publish papers of their students in bulk under one specific topic at discounted publication rate.
Anyone - Any research scholar, scientists and industrialists who intend to collaborate with MNK Publication Journals network of professional.
Researchers, who are interested in organizing a Special Issue, should submit a proposal to the journal's editorial office. The proposal should include:
All proposals are sent to the journal's editorial office where they are subject to approval by Senior Editorial Board Members. Once accepted, a Call-for-Papers will be posted on the journal's website.
To ensure the success of a Special Issue, a minimum of 20 manuscripts are required for publication. Otherwise, the manuscripts will be sent for publication in a regular issue.
Guest Editors are required to manage the peer-review process of the submitted manuscripts. Guest Editors will need to read through the manuscript and decide whether it is suitable for publication in the Special Issue. If it is they will then assign it to several reviewers to thoroughly evaluate the manuscript.
Reviewers then submit their results along with their recommendations as one of the following actions:
If a manuscript has been accepted unconditionally, it is sent for further processing.
In the case of conditional acceptance, authors are requested to review their manuscript according to the reviewer’s suggestions and submit the revised version of their manuscript for another evaluation.
If reviewers recommend rejecting a manuscript, we immediately reject the manuscript.
We have a single blinded peer-review process in which the reviewers know who the authors of the manuscript are, but the authors do not have access to the information of who the peer reviewers are. We acknowledge the researchers who have performed the peer-review and without the significant contributions made by these researchers, the publication of the journal would not be possible.
