Many researchers face difficulties or delays in getting their research articles accepted for publication in research journals, and their several submitted research articles are often rejected. For those who are enrolled in research degree programs such as Master by Research (MBR) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), a delay in publication of the research articles or their rejection causes several problems, including mental/health-related issues, for them and their research teams. This kind of situation is natural when the researchers lack proper understanding of research problem, research process and expected research outcomes with significant originality and novelty. On many occasions, most researchers experience that the weakness in the presentation becomes the main cause of publication delay or rejection.
