Below we have listed some commonly asked questions. In case you have any other question/query, do write to us at We will get back to you at the earliest.

Q What is the qualification/expertise of the reviewer who evaluates my manuscript under this service?

AThey will have a Ph.D. in your subject area. All the reviewers are researchers themselves and have published papers of their own. Most importantly, they also have extensive experience working as reviewers for prestigious international journals.

Q How do I choose the desired impact factor?

AIf your priority is to publish your paper as soon as possible, consider journals with a lower impact factor, as it is generally easier to get published in these journals. Top journals tend to have a high impact factor, but their acceptance rate is very low. If you are unsure of the appropriate impact factor for your paper, specify a wide range. Another point to remember is that impact factors vary across disciplines. For example, an impact factor of 2 may be considered high in the field of history but low in medicine. Most journals mention their impact factors on their websites. When browsing through journals, make a note of their impact factor. This will give you an idea of the range of impact factors in your field.

Q Is impact factor the main criterion to consider while selecting journals?

AThe impact factor provides a general estimation of a journal’s prestige. However, the most important consideration for authors is that their research reaches the right audience. Therefore, factors such as scope of the journal, the target readership of the journal, and the visibility of the journal (e.g., whether it is indexed by bibliographic databases) are equally, if not more, important. During journal selection, we take your research and publication priorities into consideration and recommend journals that best suit your requirements.

QDo you provide after sales service? What if I have some queries/doubts?

AYes, we do provide comprehensive after sales service. We suggest you use our free Q&A service to get your queries resolved by your editor. Please email us your queries at

QWhat if I don’t agree/like the journals you have selected?

AIn such cases, kindly let us know your views/reasons for disagreement. We will surely help you with the same.

Q Does Enago guarantee publication in the suggested journals under this service?

ANo, we cannot guarantee publication since the acceptance/rejection decision lies entirely with the journal. Journals receive several quality papers and they have to choose the best among these papers; hence, only few of them get published even when they have no major issues.

My urgency to submit to a journal was very high. I did not what journal to submit to which will accept my paper soon enough. Enago helped my find journals that have fast publication cycles.
