Factors to Consider When Choosing a Journal for Article Submissions

Factors to consider when choosing a journal:

Journal indexing - is the journal indexed in our major citation databases? Check the links below for the Journal's title.

You can generally validate whether or not a journal is academic and scholarly and if it is peer-reviewed from the resources below. These databases will also give an indication of where the journal is indexed if it is not in a database we have access to.

Which journal?



Other Journal Quality and Rankings Lists - many legitimate journals will not have impact factors or rankings. Some journals will be included in these lists and will have an impact factor that measures the frequency with which the "average article" in the journal has been cited in a particular year or period. If your journal is not listed complete the validation process discussed in the right column of this page.
