Finding Journals

Where's a good place to publish my article? 

For more on where to publish, see our sister guide Where to Publish

Judging a journal's quality

How to find out if a journal is good or reputable.

Questions to ask:

  • Have you read a few of the articles?
  • Would you want your article next to that other article?
  • Do you know anyone who’s publishing there?
  • Who’s on the editorial board?
  • Have you contacted any of the editors to make sure they agreed to be on the editorial board?

Directory of Open Access Journals maintains a whitelist of journals which meet certain standards.  A subset of journals which adhere to best practices get a DOAJ Seal of Approval
