Before submitting your manuscript, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind. First and foremost, ask yourself if your research answers the fundamental question of "why?" Editors and reviewers seek original and innovative research that contributes to their respective fields or has immediate real-world implications. Therefore, it is essential that your conclusions are well-supported by robust data and address existing gaps in your field.

Additionally, it is important to assess whether there is an audience for your research findings. The more original and innovative your work is, the greater the interest it will generate. Consider whether your research appeals to a local, regional, or international audience. Identifying your target audience is a crucial step in selecting the appropriate journal for manuscript submission.

At Aro, we accept various types of research articles to accommodate diverse scholarly contributions:

  1. Letters and rapid or short communications: These articles aim to swiftly communicate significant or original advancements without extensive data or detail.
  2. Review papers: These articles provide comprehensive summaries of recent developments on a specific topic, without introducing new data.
  3. Full articles: These articles present substantial data, detailed methodologies, and comprehensive outcomes.
  4. Research elements: This category allows you to publish various research outputs, such as data, software, methods, videos, and more, in brief, citable articles.

If you are unsure about the most suitable article type for your research, we encourage you to discuss your options with your supervisor or colleagues. Aro provides guidance on writing and publishing full articles through workshops.
