About abstracting and indexing:

1. How does Open Access publishing relate to abstracting and indexing?
Having an article available in the leading content repositories and major search engines, greatly increases exposure, readership and citations.
“When deciding which journal to submit to, the abstracting and indexing services should be taken into consideration. See our guide to selecting the right journal for your research.

In the case of subscription-based journals, readers who discover an article via a repository search cannot read the paper in full, unless they have a subscription.
However, as Dream Science only publishes Open Access content, we work closely with the various database providers to ensure that the full text of your papers is made available through the leading abstracting and indexing services.

Other General queries:
1. Will my manuscript remain confidential?
Yes. Dream Science treats all submitted manuscripts as confidential documents. Dream Science also instructs and expects our Board of Reviewing Editors and reviewers to treat manuscripts as confidential material. Our peer review process is also confidential, and identities of reviewers are not released. (Letters and Technical Comments are sent to the authors of papers on which they comment for response or rebuttal, but otherwise are treated in the same way as other contributions with respect to confidentiality.)

2. Is Dream Science an Indian Journal?
Dream Science is not just an Indian journal. We view dream science as a global enterprise and want to publish the best papers in arts, engineering, humanities, literature, science and technology, from all countries and regions. We welcome submissions from non-Indian authors, and more than half of our accepted papers have non-Indian authors.
Our commitment to a broad geographical base runs deeper than just an interest in non-Indian manuscripts, however. A substantial share of both our Board of Reviewing Editors and our referees are from outside of the India. We review most manuscripts electronically to facilitate the use of expert referees, regardless of location. Similarly, our readers come from all over the world.

3. What's the policy on prior publication of results?
Dream Science will only consider research papers that are reporting primary data and the main conclusions for the first time. Your cover letter should clarify how the Dream Science submission is original. Any related manuscript that is under consideration or accepted in another journal but not yet published by any author on the manuscript should be included with your submission or revision so it can be uploaded as an auxiliary file. Discovery of a related paper by any author that is not disclosed may be cause for immediate rejection without appeal or editorial retraction after publication.

4. What about manuscripts that have been posted online before submission?
We do not consider manuscripts that have been previously published elsewhere. Posting of a paper on the Internet may be considered prior publication that could compromise the originality of the Science submission, although we do allow posting on arxiv.org and in many cases on other not-for-profit preprint servers. Please contact the editors for advice about specific cases.

5. What's the policy on publication of data sets?
As a condition of publication, authors must agree to make available all data necessary to understand and assess the conclusions of the manuscript to any reader of Dream Science. Data must be included in the body of the paper or in the supplementary materials, where they can be viewed free of charge by all visitors to the site. Certain types of data must be deposited in an approved online database, including DNA and protein sequences, microarray data, crystal nmr, electron microscopy structures, and climate records. The accession numbers must be included in the published paper and coordinates must be released at the time of publication.
