May 29, 2020 It was submitted, and underwent one major revision and two minor revisions in the middle. The editor was really serious and responsible. But the level of reviewers is uneven. It lasted for 6 months. Those who are eager to use the paper for evaluation and award are not recommended to submit to this journal. This journal feels pretty good, but why it is categorized into Q3?

The manuscript was submitted on March 10, 2020, and the comments for major revisions were received on April 17. We only responded to the comments in mid-June due to our personal reasons. July 5 Provisionally accepted with minor revision. We revised it the same day and responded to them the next day. July 14 Accepted. This journal is very slow, but we still want to try it. It seems that we got some luck.

The article was finally accepted yesterday. It was the first SCI article submitted. Here to share my experience! As a long-established film journal, Thin Solid Films has a very good reputation, and the self-citation is only 6.6%, which is much lower than that of journals in Q1 and Q2. However, the review speed is too slow, which may also be the reason why the impact factor cannot be increased. It was the boss’s request to submit, I have no choice but submit. The article was submitted in November last year, and it has been 8 months and a half for now. During the period, it took a month for the major revision. The funny thing is that I submitted articles separately to another two SCI journals in Q3 in January and April this year, and both of the articles, which have been accepted. Thin Solid Films was the first journal I submitted to but the last one gave results. In general, it is really not difficult. There were nearly 20 questions raised by two reviewers. Some were relatively professional and some were amateurs. The article can basically be accepted if you answer the questions well. However, the process took a long time. The following is the review process: 10/30/2019, submitted; 11/05/2019, with editor; 11/24/2019, under review; 01/27/2020, major revision; 03/17/2020, submitted; 04/17/2020, under review (second review, it took one month before being sent for review); 06/01/2020, minor revision (revised for 3 hours, it took half a month before being processed); 06/13/2020, accepted (accepted on Saturday, shocked). It is definitely not recommended for people in a hurry to graduate! Unless you submit in the first year of school.

Super slow, my paper became under review one month after I submitted it. The review took 2 months. The decision was major revision. After I resubmitted the paper, it became under review after another half month. After another 20 days, the status became Required Reviews Completed. Half a month has passed, and the status is the same. It takes so long for the editor to make a decision! After waiting for a month, I got a decision for minor revision, mostly related to the format, language, and especially the figures. The journal has high requirements in these areas.

the second TSF (the first one is remembered for the first trial for 4 months).Still two reviewers, the review is very strict, and the review comments will be given one month after the first trial, and will be replied according to the comments submitted by the reviewers (the data submitted is not fully added).The second trial period is very long for 4 months (probably because of the mid-interval summer vacation), because the submission system generally requires the reviewer to give a message within 4 months, send a reminder letter, notify the minor repair after one week, and accept it in the second half of the minor repair..It took about 6 months before and after.The journal is very good, but unfortunately IF fell last year, and it is estimated that it is related to the review cycle.

This journal is really a long review period. It was selectd in November last year. The intermediate reviewer requested a change. The result was waited for another 3 months until I wrote a reminder.After the letter, it took another week for the editor to accept the notice. It took ten months to complete. If the worm friend who urgently needed the article did not recommend the journal, I really thanked the flowers.

Old-fashioned professional journal, the name is not slow, more than three months to give advice, minor repairs need to be a small month.From submission to acceptance for almost half a year.However, I felt that it was very professional. The questions evaded in the article were all thrown out by the reviewers. After two minor repairs, I felt that the article grades had risen a lot and the content was much richer.So recommend this journal if you are not in a hurry.

Speed ​​is not fast.I submitted the manuscript on October 4 last year and accepted it on May 13 this year.It may be that luck is better, and the two review comments are softer, which is not a matter of revision.I can't figure out that this journal should not be in Zone 2.

I made a dye-sensitized solar cell. I received an article last year. The journal is very good. The review speed is very fast. I have reviewed the results for more than one month. Overhaul, I spent a lot of energy to modify it.After submitteding it, there was news that it would continue to be overhauled. A total of 4-5 revisions were made, from submission to recruitment for about half a year.The editor is quite responsible, and the comments are very quick. The two reviewers have higher requirements on the format and picture clarity of the article.
