Choosing Where To Publish Your Research: Journal Selection Tools

This guide discusses factors that researchers should consider when evaluating journals and choosing where to submit their research products

Journal Selection Tools

These are links to automated journal suggestion tools that are available online. These tools have boxes for you to type in information such as the title and abstract of your manuscript. After entering the requested information, you can run a search and the tool will suggest journals that may be a good match for your paper. Each of the linked resources has its own little features for refining the results you obtain.

Experiment with these tools and see what suggestions you get. Remember that you can check any suggested journals by looking them up in sources of bibliometric information like Scopus Sources or Scimago Journal & Country Rank.
