How do I know that my manuscript will be accessible to other scientists?

Journal impact factors are a function of how many times manuscripts in a journal are cited by other authors. Obviously, it will take some time for a newly launched journal to have enough manuscripts; so that an impact factor could be calculated. However, there are other factors involved in achieving a high impact factor. One of these is accessibility. Other authors cannot cite your manuscript if they are unaware of it, or cannot find it. A listing of databases, indexes and archives that provide access to JOHOE manuscripts include: PubMed / ISI Web of Knowledge / Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) / Index Medicus (IMEMR) / EBSCOhost / Ulrich Global Serials Directory / International Political Science Abstracts (IPSA) / OCLC Worldcat / Google Scholar / Social Science Research Network (SSRN) / Islamic World Science Citation Center (ISC) / Scientific Information Database (SID) / Magiran / Directory of Research Journals Indexing (DRJI) and etc.

Once I have submitted a manuscript, how long can I expect to wait before I hear from the journal, and how much time passes between acceptance and publication of a manuscript?

Submissions are acknowledged promptly by e-mail. All manuscripts submitted to the JOHOE are subject to peer-review process. Authors can expect to wait about one or two months from the date of submission until receiving the journal’s decision. For manuscripts that are selected for revision, the length of time between the revision request and publication will vary widely (from two weeks to two months) depending on various factors, including the extent of revision required, the need for additional review and revision.
