Abstracting and Indexing

Article Processing Charges (APCs)

With all the journals published in full open access, TSP allows free and unrestricted access to the full text of academic articles for scholars from all over the world. Manuscripts once accepted for publication after peer-review will incur a processing fee. Please check the Article Process Charge page of each journal for specific APCs.


General Peer-Review and Editorial Procedure 

TSP relies on peer review to maintain the quality and validity of all articles and the journals that publish them. All manuscripts considered for publication in our journals, including invited papers, go through a stringent and thorough peer-review procedure. Upon the receipt of a new submission, the Managing Editor of the journal will firstly check its suitability and assign it to Editorial Board for pre-peer-review. Papers deemed suitable for peer review will then be sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers for academic assessment by the Editorial Office. Authors will be asked to make proper revisions (with a second round of peer-review if needed) as per reviewers’ comments. The final decision regarding acceptance or rejection will be made by the journal’s Editor(s)-in-Chief.


Editorial Decision and Revision

All original articles, reviews, and other types of papers published in TSP journals go through our peer-review process. The editorial decision is based on a minimum of two reviewers’ comments and may take one of the following four forms:


  • Accept 

The paper is in principle accepted based on the reviewers’ comments. The decision to publish is not based solely on the scientific validity of an article’s content but may also take into such considerations as its extent and importance.  


  • Minor revisions 

The paper is to be accepted after it undergoes minor revisions specified in the reviewers’ comments. The authors will be given fifteen days to finish the minor revisions along with a point-by-point response or a rebuttal letter to the comments.  


  • Major revisions 

The paper may be accepted only if it could be thoroughly revised. The authors will be given thirty days to finish the major revisions and also return it with a point-by-point response or rebuttal to the comments. The revised version will be sent to the same reviewers for further comments. A second round of peer-review may be initiated if necessary.


  • Decline

The paper is rejected without the possibility of acceptance after revision if they are found to have serious flaws and/or make no original contribution to the academic community.
