1. While you are working on your paper and writing the literature review, you must come across papers similar to yours. Make a note of the journals where these papers are published.
2. Shortlist a few journals and look at their aims and objectives. Find out the one which matches your paper. Then download a few recent papers from that journal and read them carefully to understand the writing style. You must make sure that you follow that writing style and author guidelines.
3. Make sure that your paper is about something new (theoretical novelty, managerial novelty or/and methodological novelty). It is because most of the journals are not interested to publish something which is just a mere replication. Even if you are replicating, its better to do a comparative study where you can compare your findings with the original study.
4. Attend some workshops so that you can have the skill set to write an impressive paper.
5. Be open. Attend conferences. Talk to experts. Write emails to the most cited/ most read scholars in your area. Yes, they are mostly professors… but believe me… they are happy to receive emails from students who wants to learn. Try to write papers with these scholars. Believe me this is the most successful method of learning how to write acceptable papers.
6. If your paper is rejected. Look at why is it rejected. Try to learn from your mistakes. Make sure that you fix your paper as per the reviewer comments and then send it to another journal (may be a bit lower in ranking). Sometimes you may not agree to what reviewers say. It is fine and you can write it in your response but make sure do it with a justification and in a respectable manner.
7. Believe in yourself and believe in God (if you do).
