This talk aims to help young researchers to prepare and publish papers in top journals. It will use the journal “Knowledge-based Systems” as an example to first introduce editorial issues such as paper review process and how reviewers look at. It will then talk about the preparation of a journal paper, main types of journal papers, and quality of a work. It will particularly present the structure of a journal paper and how to write each part of a paper. Finally, how to revise a paper based on reviewer comments is discussed in detail.
