If you are an academic researcher or a professional who wants to publish your work in a reputable journal, you may be interested in submitting a manuscript to the International Peer-Reviewed Journal of Business (IPRJB). IPRJB is a multidisciplinary journal that covers various topics related to business, management, economics, and finance. But how can you prepare your manuscript for submission? What are the guidelines and requirements that you need to follow? And what are the benefits of publishing with IPRJB? In this article, we will answer these questions and provide you with some tips on how to write a high-quality manuscript for IPRJB.
The first step in preparing your manuscript is to choose a suitable topic and conduct a thorough literature review. You need to identify a research gap or a problem that has not been adequately addressed in the existing literature. You also need to demonstrate the significance and originality of your research by showing how it contributes to the advancement of knowledge or practice in your field. You should also be aware of the latest trends and developments in your area of interest. For example, did you know that according to a recent study, the global business process outsourcing market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 8.5% from 2020 to 2027? This is an example of a statistical trend that you can use to support your argument or justify your research question.
The next step is to write a clear and concise abstract that summarizes the main points of your manuscript. The abstract should include the following elements: the background and context of your research, the purpose and objectives of your study, the methods and data sources that you used, the main findings and implications of your results, and the conclusions and recommendations that you derived from your analysis. The abstract should not exceed 250 words and should be written in the third person. You should also provide 3-5 keywords that reflect the main themes of your manuscript.
The third step is to write the introduction section of your manuscript. The introduction should provide the reader with an overview of your research topic and explain why it is important and relevant. You should also state the research question or hypothesis that you aim to answer or test in your study. You should also briefly describe the structure and organization of your manuscript and indicate what each section will cover. The introduction should end with a rhetorical question that captures the attention of the reader and motivates them to read further. For example, you could ask: How can businesses leverage the opportunities and overcome the challenges of outsourcing in the post-pandemic era?
The fourth step is to write the body sections of your manuscript. Depending on the nature and scope of your research, you may have different sections such as literature review, methodology, results, discussion, or case studies. Each section should have a clear title and subheadings that guide the reader through your argument or analysis. You should also use appropriate citations and references to support your claims and acknowledge the sources that you used in your research. You should follow the APA style for formatting your citations and references. You should also use tables, figures, graphs, or charts to illustrate or summarize your data or findings. You should label each table or figure with a number and a title and refer to them in the text.
The fifth step is to write the conclusion section of your manuscript. The conclusion should summarize the main points of your manuscript and restate the answer to your research question or hypothesis. You should also discuss the limitations and implications of your study and suggest directions for future research or practice. You should also emphasize how your research contributes to the existing literature or knowledge in your field. You should also mention how publishing with IPRJB can help you disseminate your work to a wide audience of scholars and practitioners who are interested in business-related topics.
The final step is to proofread and edit your manuscript before submitting it to IPRJB. You should check for spelling, grammar, punctuation, and formatting errors and make sure that your manuscript follows the guidelines and requirements of IPRJB. You should also ensure that your manuscript is original and does not contain any plagiarism or duplication. You can use online tools such as Turnitin or Grammarly to check for plagiarism or grammar issues. You should also ask a colleague or a friend to review your manuscript and provide feedback or suggestions for improvement.
To submit your manuscript to IPRJB, you need to register as an author on their website (https://www.iprjb.org/) and follow the instructions for online submission. You will need to upload your manuscript as a Word document along with a cover letter that introduces yourself and explains why you chose IPRJB as your target journal. You will also need to pay a nominal fee for processing and publication. Once you submit your manuscript, you will receive an acknowledgment email from IPRJB and a tracking number that you can use to check the status of your submission. You will also be assigned an editor who will review your manuscript and provide feedback or suggestions for revision. You may need to revise and resubmit your manuscript until it meets the standards and expectations of IPRJB. The peer review process may take 2 weeks to 2 months depending on the quality and complexity of your manuscript. Once your manuscript is accepted, you will receive a confirmation email from IPRJB and a link to access your published article online.
