Choosing the Best Journal for Your Paper

Ben Mudrak, PhD

Publishing research results is critical to maintain a career in academia. Unfortunately, with the ever-increasing number of journals, it can be very time-consuming and difficult to find a good match for a new manuscript.

In this webinar, we’ll look at ways to:

  • search for target journals (and where to collect additional information and metrics about these journals)
  • identify questionable journals
  • list some questions to ask when making a final decision about where to submit

While it requires work to compile and update a good list of target journals, putting in effort to pick the best journal before you submit can save you months and months of time waiting for reviews and resubmitting. The goal of this webinar is to give you some ideas, tools, and resources to find the right journal the first time.
