Choosing the right journal for your academic works
Many researchers wonder where to publish their academic works. The possibilities are multifold , and there are also many considerations to make, which means the decision might be complex.
There are several useful ways to compare between journals and make the best decision
Option A: Use the publisher’s Journal Finder to find relevant journals based on an article’s Abstract/Title/Keywords
All you got to do is to Copy and Paste the text from your article Abstract (or any other relevant content in your article), and the database will present a list of all the journals with relevancy to your research topic.
You can use one of the following sources:
- JournalFinder (ELSEVIER)
- Find a Journal (Wiley)
- Journal Suggester (SPRINGER)
- Journal Suggester (Taylor & Francis)
- Publication Recommender (IEEE)
- Clarivate Journal Finder (Free Registration Needed)
Option B: Use databases to find relevant journals
It is recommended to choose one of the multidisciplinary databases, such as Scopus or Web of Science.
Choose relevant keywords for your search and filter the results by journals and/or publishers.
