Digital Strategies to Find the Right Journal for Publishing Your Research
This session will provide an overview of digital tools and initiatives that help researchers select the right journal for their manuscript to ensure the best chance of article acceptance.
There are tens of thousands of academic journals to choose from. Submitting a paper to an unsuitable journal is a key cause of article rejection, but it can be difficult to narrow down which journal is best suited. The presentation will outline how digital tools can support the decision process.
After the session, attendees will:
- understand journal selection mechanisms in the digital age including finding journal rankings online and identifying predatory journals,
- describe novel digital tools that assist with identifying the right journal for a research project (e.g., https://findmyjournal.com, https://journalfinder.elsevier.com, https://journalsuggester.springer.com, https://www.enago.com/academy/journal-finder/).
- understand the role of associations such as Think.Check.Submit, DOAJ, and OASPA in facilitating effective journal selection.
This webinar was a collaboration between Enago Academy and the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SC CTSI) at the University of Southern California (USC).
