Premium publication support for 1000 USD, all inclusive.
Publication support has been available at Peerwith for quite some time, but the recent addition to our full-service offering adds publication guarantees: you will receive all your money back if the service provided by Peerwith Experts didn’t lead to publication.
Now lets take a look at a very specific step: Literature search
Remember, your manuscript will only get published if it brings something “novel”. This term is used to describe research that has identified phenomena or developed techniques/materials that haven’t been previously reported in the literature. In order to proof this, proper Literature search is key to get published. It is important to ensure your paper cites recent international literature and has a selection of recent, international references in your Reference list.
Meet Bacem Essam, https://peerwith.expert/BAEssam, a Scopus-indexed author from Egypt who takes pride in guiding many early career researchers to submit manuscripts for Scopus-indexed journals.

Bacem explains “What makes a good reference list and why that is important”. It is important because a good reference list indicates you have done your homework with good Literature search. And if you haven’t done your homework, Bacem can help you!
So Bacem, what is the first two things you check for?
References should be structured in one way and sufficient number (20+) of references present.
Almost 100% of the references should have a DOI present. All references should be findable, either through DOI or with an URL present. If not findable, it can be removed.
That is basic stuff, but many early career researchers do not know this is important. A messy reference list will lead to immediate rejection. Second thing Bacem checks for is the citations:
References that are not cited in-text, can be removed. No in-text citations and/or another way to see how references are used in the text, means the reference list is useless.
Now these type of basic checks are included in the Literature search service, but the added value is where Bacem does another check:
References from recent, relevant and international publications should be present and used by in-text citation. If missing, or if most references are from local or older sources, the manuscript is probably not broad enough for a research article.
In our experience, this is where many early career researchers that want to get published in an indexed journal go wrong. Their manuscript miss out on the obvious literature and therefore is not novel. It often considers a very limited set of sources, and in that context the manuscript is novel. However, in the context of all literature out there, it is not. When they submit, the journal editor will see this immediately and reject for that obvious reason.
Experts like Bacem help to get published by providing Literature search service, extend your reference list and make sure you at least consider recent, relevant and international publications. Almost automatically this makes sure your manuscript is framed into novelty, it adds something to existing literature.
Remember, this Literature search service is part of the Premium publication support for 1000 USD, all inclusive offer, a unique full-service offering through Peerwith. The service then continues with Scientific editing provided by a different expert.
