I want to send our preprint, that we put online around three months ago, to a journal. How can I know which journals accept articles previously put online as a preprint? Many of them do not mention this in their guidelines. Please do not tell me ask the editors, since in most of the journals editors do not answer or take a very long time to answer!

    If it was already published, why do you need a preprint? And, sorry, but only the journal can answer for itself.

  • It was not published!! preprint is not peer reviewed! I do not need pre print! Do you know what preprint means?

  • What was published 3 months ago?

    @AhmadTurani I do think Buffy likely unintentionally changed the meaning of your question by trying to clarify it; please use the edit to improve the question yourself and make it more clear. Note your original said "I want to send our priprint which was published around3 months ago", bold mine. If you only have a preprint, not published, why say published?

  • @AhmadTurani The term published is ambiguous these days. Posting on a preprint repository is technically publishing, but most academics just say a preprint was posted. Commented Jul 13, 2022 at 23:49

There's typically no policy against submitting preprints (since most submissions are preprints), so the answer is "all of them".

  • Yes but a few journals I saw, is against it.
