Journal Selection Considerations
Where you publish can be as important as what you publish.
Consider the following when selecting a journal to which to submit your article.
- Relevance: The journal should publish research that is relevant to your work, the type of article that you want to publish, and reach the audience you want to read your work. For interdisciplinary research, finding a relevant journal may mean looking beyond journals that are in your field.
- Discoverability: The journal should be indexed by major citation and abstract databases such as PubMed, Web of Science and Scopus.
- Quality: Where does the journal rank according to impact factor and other measures of journal quality? Who is on the editorial board of the journal?
- Public Access: Does your article need to comply with the SFI Open Access Availability of Published Research Policy
- Open Access: Do you wish to publish in an open access journal which will make the full text of your work freely available online at the time of publication?
