CONTRERAS, Francisco Ganga; BUZETA, Lorena Paredes  y  PEDRAJA-REJAS, Liliana. The importance of academic publications: Some problems and recommendations to keep in mind. Idesia [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.4, pp.111-119. ISSN 0718-3429.

Academic publications in scientific journals are the embodiment of knowledge generation, a process that is one of the major roles that a university must achieve. However, when publishing the findings of conducted researches, certain problems can emerge. The present paper begins by setting contextual aspects that allow to present the topic, then reviews the most common problems faced by authors when submitting an article for possible publication; among these they are: delay time of publication, abuse of self-citations, opacity in accepting articles, incompetence in reviewing articles and lack of rigor in the calculation of the impact factor. Finally, based on the problems identified previously, some recommendations are made, to take into consideration when publishing in scientific journals.

Palabras clave : Self-citation; academic publications; impact factor; scientific journals.
