Seminar
- Selecting the Right Journal for Your Article -
Selecting an appropriate journal for publication of your research involves several factors, including journal impact and duration of manuscript review. In addition, authors must be careful to avoid submission to the growing number of "predatory" open access journals.
The instructor will discuss the criteria used for journal selection, resources to aid you in selecting a journal, and methods of avoiding submission to predatory journals.
