Certain pieces of practical advice for authors who intend to publish in internationally rated journals:

  • Use academic social networks and Internet resources often;
  • Published papers should be technically done under certain standards, depending on where they are going to be published;
  • Abstracts in papers should be done in English to make them understandable to the international community, applying existing terminology in one’s field in the abstract;
  • In the paper, the authors should pay attention to the key words which should be in both Georgian and English;
  • Authors should use various papers, researches and Internet resources while working on the text. The source of information used in the paper should be in English, as required by the international standards, since some databases process information only in English and references in Georgian font cannot be properly perceived in the calculation of citation index;
  • Authors in all published articles must indicate their own data in the same unaltered way with the protection of accurate data (e.g. should not be Anna, Anna, Ani);
  • Should be able to cite from their own published work, the so-called self-citation;
  • Co-authoring with colleagues enjoying a high citation rate.
