I am looking for a rapid publish journal in material science, environmental science or electrochemical science, open access journals are OK.

This is so weired that my defense committee requires me 3~4 papers to pass the oral defense. Though I've already had one medium and one high impact factor papers.

There's no requirements for the journal. I have 2 low quality papers, I thought I could work with others to improve their quality for better publication after I graduate, followed my supervisors' advice .

However, I need to graduate ASAP since my scholarship had already been ended.

Just looking for a rapid and easy journal in material science, environmental science or electrochemical science to publish my paper ASAP, no specific requirement is needed, I can pay that money.


  • Sorry to hear you're in that situation, and really unfortunate that the requirement wasn't communicated earlier. However, these kind of "shopping questions" are considered off-topic here, so your question will likely be closed soon. You may want to have a look at SciRev instead, to get an idea of turnaround times for different journals.

    This explains the demand for predatory publishers. But I hesitate to recommend them. Whatever you do, make sure that your supervisor) graduation committee is ok with the journal you choose.

It seems if there literally is no requirement about the journal then you can create your own journal and publish those papers yourself.
