I personally think this is a very good journal, especially I can get the opportunity of guidance and continuous attention from experts! A total of four reviewers (One of them insisted on rejection without providing detailed comments, but with few sentences saying that it did not solve any problems and was not suitable for publication in any journal. The other three reviewers had very positive comments. However, the reviewers were very serious and gave a lot of suggestions for revisions), and all the reviewers are academic experts who have posted a large number of articles in top journal (Such as Nature, Science, NC, NG, Geology, ESR, EPSL, etc.). From submission to publication, it went through from first rejection, second major revision, and the third minor revision to acceptance. I have benefited a lot from this submission, and it will be a treasure of my life! The second manuscript has been submitted for more than a month. Currently the new submission system does not support tracking the specific process. I hope I can receive good news after the new year~ PS: You will know it is a good journal or not after you submitting it. And I don’t think it is necessary to argue too much. At least SR is a better option to be submitted to after the rejection by NC and NG. It’s not terrible being rejected by the top journal. Stick to it! The rest of your life is very long, and there is always a chance to be accepted once~

Let me add that this journal and PLOS ONE are being considered for blacklisting by the National Fund Committee. It comes from Nature’s official news: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-07025-5...that researchers cannot use grant money to pay their publication fees....The first list contains two of the world's largest journals PLOS ONE and Scientific Reports. Joerg Heber, Editor-in-Chief of PLOS ONE. You should think twice before considering submitting articles to this journal.

I feel the journal requires a certain quality of the paper. Because my paper was on a real novel idea, it was not easy to find a reviewer. There was only one reviewer and the comments were mostly about details or asking for clarification, so it was minor revision. Took me 2 days to resubmit to the editor, and the editor sent it to the reviewer (I feel this is unnecessary). Then the reviewer returned only one sentence saying that the author had completely revised the article in accordance with the comments. Then the paper was accepted. Because I had formatted the paper corrected, there was no need to change the format, and I didn’t get questions regarding the language. In fact, the reviewer said that the language was good. Decision Started 1 July 2016, Manuscript assigned to peer-reviewer/s 1 July 2016, Manuscript Assigned to Peer-Reviewer/s 9 June 2016, Manuscript Assigned to Editor 18 May 2016, Manuscript Assigned to Peer-Reviewer/s 30 March 2016, Manuscript Assigned to Peer-Reviewer/s 23 March 2016, Manuscript Submitted 30 January 2016.

It was assigned to the editor within few days but couldn't find a reviewer for a month. After the first reviewer submitted the comments. It took the editor about a month to take a decision. The status is not updated and there is no way to contact the editor. The article is rejected with the comment "  Since the developed method lacks impressive innovation, I’d like to reject its publication" .

 Last time to consider this journal. MDPI is much faster and more professional

Everyone has been 骂SR water journal, I especially want to know what the water looks like... I submitted a total of 3 reviewers, one overhaul, two positive opinions, and the editor’s overhaulAfter the change, the reviewer who said that the overhaul was directly rejected, the editor found the fourth reviewer, and the fourth reviewer agreed to accept it... Now that the comments have been answered, there should be no big problem.To be honest, I am not a big cow, but I have been doing experiments very seriously. I have also written a few articles in one area. I think that this article I sent to SR is definitely not a parallel product, but everyone is talking about the water journal.And the journal's influence factor has been falling, and suddenly it is worthless for yourself.I personally think that the reviewer of SR really is very careful.

@514楼The number of articles in LetPub refers to the official version of the latest version of Kerui Wei'an. It is not that the latest data of each journal is counted in January. There are 10,000 journals in the journal system..LetPub provides the impact factor data for June each year. The number of articles corresponding to 2018.6 is 24,809 for the whole year of 2017. If you subtract 7000 for the whole year of 2018, it is consistent with the 2018 articles that you said throughout the year..For information on the speed of submission, thank you for sharing your actual submission experience data.

2018 has passed, and statistics show that the number of publications of Scientific Reports in 2018 (including articles for correcting statements) is about 18,000, which is about 7,000 less than the number of publications in 2017.This shows that SR has returned to rationality since 2018, and the facts confirm that the number of SR-issued publications predicted by the commentary area six months ago will be reduced by 7,000.From the state of January 2019, the number of SRs is likely to decrease further in 2019.Here, the administrator of LetPub is reminded to modify the "number of articles in the year" of the journal.In addition, SR's average review speed is 2-3 months, instead of the data provided by the website “very fast, 2-3 weeks”, please ask the administrator of LetPub to modify the “average review speed” of the journal's data..The articles of SR are all public. We can also see the submission and review time of each article (both on the front page of the article). You can download 100 articles and count their review period to know the answer.It is definitely not 2-3 weeks.SR is now going through 5-6 months from submission to publication.Everyone can pay attention to the dynamics of SR and hope that it will become more and more rational.As a subsidiary of Nature, SR has come along, experienced ups and downs, and has been suppressed. It is gratifying that it is becoming more rational. We should also look at its characteristics of running journals with a rational eye.
