2nd April 2022


Zoom meeting platform

Are you looking to discover how to choose the best journal to publish your esteemed research work? Choosing which journal to publish your research paper is one of the most significant decisions you have to make as a researcher. Where you decide to submit your work can make a big difference to the reach and impact your research has.

It’s important to take your time to consider your options carefully and analyse each aspect of journal submission – from shortlisting titles to your preferred method of publication, for example open access. 

Why choose your target journal before you start writing?

The first step in publishing a research paper should always be selecting the journal you want to publish in. Choosing your target journal before you start writing means you can tailor your work to build on research that’s already been published in that journal. This can help editors to see how a paper adds to the ‘conversation’ in their journal.

In addition, many journals only accept specific manuscript formats of article. By choosing a journal before you start, you can write your article to their specifications and audience, and ultimately improve your chances of acceptance.

How to select the journal to publish your research in?

Choosing a journal for your research can seem daunting, but it doesn’t need to be.  By asking some simple questions, you can quickly narrow your focus. While there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach, this series of international conference on research &best publishing practices is designed to take you through the typical steps in publishing a research paper.
