- Your choice of journal should be consistent with your field of research. This seems like a no brainer but people submitting their papers to just about any journal is commonplace.
- Make a list of journals that seem suitable for your research.
- Next, go through previous issues of journals and look for papers that are similar to your paper in subject and scope.
- Choose a journal that matches your research content and style.
- The impact factor of the journal is also an important consideration. While a greater impact factor ensures higher ranking of the journal, it also implies greater risk of rejection.
- Also, certain journals will take longer to publish your paper than the others. If you wish to see your paper published quickly, choose a journal accordingly.
- Submit your paper to only one journal at a time. Multiple submissions are considered unethical and will eventually be noticed.
- Search for journals that have advertised call for papers. You are more likely to hit the bull’s eye with these.
It is important that you take utmost care and cherry pick the journal for your research.
