Publishing on Pressure Ink:  The editorial process

This document outlines the editorial process for publishing content on Pressure Ink.  It is the responsibility of the writer(s) to understand these procedures and how their work is handled by the editors and content managers of Pressure Ink.

At Submission

Articles must be submitted to submissions@pressure-ink.com, along with 2 signed copies of the Article Release Form and Article Submission Form with contact details of all writers.   The writer(s) will receive a copy of the release form signed by Pressure Ink and should be kept for reference.

The following are essential criteria for an article to be considered for publication

  • The Article Release Form has been signed by the writer(s) and Pressure Ink.
  • The work is of adequate length (not exceeding 3,000 words) and must include a 150 word abstract (for reference only), a title and instructions of how links, pictures or videos should be incorporated into the text.  
  • The work is an original document reporting, analysing, reviewing a scientific paper, journal article, science or technology news article or describing own work or interests and its relatedness to science research.
  • Articles submitted must follow the same criteria set by major scientific journals, such that references are properly cited and intellectual property is protected.
  • The work is written professionally and easy to understand from a non-science background and fulfils the values set by Pressure Ink to reach interest in transdisciplinary readership.
  • Although articles can include personal opinions or speculations, these must be clearly indicated and separated from facts.  The writer(s) will need to follow the conditions set in the Article Release Form.

The work will not be considered for publication if these criteria are not met.  The writer(s) will, however, get the opportunity to re-draft their work, and re-submit so long:

  • Pressure Ink finds that the corrections have addressed the issues in the last attempt to publish the work.
  • A new Article Release Form has been signed by the writer(s).

After Submission

Once the work has been submitted to Pressure Ink, the writer(s) will receive a submission confirmation email with a confirmation code, along with other information about the editorial process.   The writer(s) can contact Pressure Ink during the editorial process, but cannot change, edit or review their submission while it is in review.  The writer(s) is advised to not send in the work to another website until the decision from Pressure Ink has been made.  

The Outcome

Pressure Ink will send a letter to the writer(s) with the outcome result of the submitted work.  This may inform the writer(s) that,

  • The work is worthy for publication on Pressure Ink and does not need further review.
  • The work is worthy for publication on Pressure Ink, but subjected to minor or major corrections by the writer(s).
  • The work may be worthy for publication of Pressure Ink but needs substantial changes by the writer(s) and must be re-submitted within 4 weeks of the original submission and undergo a second editorial process.  If after re-submission the work is not to the standards set by Pressure Ink, the work is rejected.  A rejection letter will be sent to the writer(s). 
  • In extreme cases the work would be rejected during the first review.

In which case the work is rejected by Pressure Ink, the writer(s) will have the opportunity to edit the work, and re-submit to Pressure Ink, 2 months after the rejection letter is sent.     

Accepted Articles

If your article is accepted, Pressure Ink will send a confirmation letter to the writer(s) along with a passcode to access the article before it is published on Pressure-Ink.com and a deadline for when the article should be published.  The writer(s) will need to review their article formatting and communicate corrections or edits to Pressure Ink (inkstudio@pressure-ink.com) before the deadline is reached.   Typical length of an article on Pressure Ink is 1,300 words, although as noted above, it can be no longer than 3,000 words.  Articles that have pictures, videos or larger text headings will have to be divided into different pages.  If the writer(s) fails to notify Pressure Ink of any corrections or edits before the deadline is reached, Pressure Ink will release the article.  Although Pressure Ink allows articles to be formatted differently after publication, the writer(s) is encouraged to keep to the revision deadlines to avoid delays.

Your published content may be removed from Pressure Ink if,

  • You are found to be in breach of any conditions set out by Pressure Ink
