Should I purchase Promotional Services only when my paper is accepted by a journal?+
We recommend that you request these services once you have received preliminary acceptance and your manuscript is in production with the journal. By starting the process then, your promotional materials will be ready by the time of publication.
What information do I need to provide to purchase Promotional Services?+
You will need to provide your final manuscript, with all the figures and tables, and share the name of your target journal. Please tell us if you have certain promotional platforms or target audiences in mind. Additionally, any input on the theme, color schemes, and other design aspects will help us customize the output to your preferences.
Can I get my promotional material translated?+
We can provide translation support at an additional fee based on the specifics of your order. Please specify your needs for translation on the inquiry form.
Will I hold the copyright for all delivered materials?+
We will transfer all copyrights to you upon delivery. If there is any copyrighted element that we have purchased for use in the video or graphics, we will also provide this information to you in the report so that you can include appropriate citations in future use. You may use the materials as you wish; however, we would suggest that you ensure that you retain copyright when you post the materials and avoid handing over rights to third parties.
Can I edit the delivered infographic/poster?+
You will need to have access to the appropriate software to make any updates to a delivered infographic or poster. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you send the FINAL version of your manuscript for us to produce promotional materials. We stand behind the quality of our work, and if a design does not meet your expectations, we will work with you to correct the issue.
