Getting Started

Questions to consider:


Your manuscript is finished and now it is time to find a journal in which to publish. When considering a journal, think about the following questions:


  • How does the journal rank in comparison to other journals?
  • What are the acceptance rates?
  • Is there a fee?
  • What is the availability of this journal?



Identifying potential journals:


Try searching for your topic in a relevant database to see where other articles on your topic have been published.


Publishing with predatory journals can negatively affect your scholarly impact. Sources on this page can help you select a proper venue for your manuscript and will also help you determine which journals to avoid.
